An Education Day For Greg SchianoAugust 22nd, 2012
The leader of the New Schiano Order said today’s practice experience with the New England Patriots was a learning experience on a lot of levels.
For one, the head coach said he hopes his players put their egos aside and learned from the Hall of Famers on the field. Schiano said he eagerly learned from Bill Belicheat today.
As for how the Bucs performed against New England, Schiano wasn’t impressed by his Buccaneer Men.
“It’ll be great tape to learn from,” Schiano said. “We made more mistakes than you can shake a stick at.”
Schiano said he appreciated the time against the Patriots because there’s more true player evaluation against an unfamiliar opponent because smart Buccaneers will learn their own teammates offensive and defensive calls and anticipate plays. That wouldn’t have been possible against the Pats.
Also, Schiano said he was impressed standing on the field and watching how Tom Brady handles his huddle.
The physical head-to-head practice action was not open to media, and Schiano didn’t deliver any highlights.
