Everyone forgets that Schiano was an asst coach and a coordinator in the NFL prior to coaching Rutgers. They make him sound like he coached pop-warner ball last year and figured he would give the NFL a shot for kicks.
I don’t know why everyone is saying wait ti the bucs line up and other teams do that to the bucs. I guarantee we will be expecting it and we will block and freeman will take two steps back and knee. You think we aren’t prepared for that. I’m sure if this were against a team like the jaguars it would t be this big.
This was a great call!! Did you see Manning? He fell back from the center if he would have dropped that ball Barber and Wright were right there and would have been untouched to the end zone had Eli fumbled the ball because his lineman hit him. We didn’t touch him so I don’t know were he gets off saying it was a cheap shot. Still the way we had that game we need to learn how to close and finish games. If we want to be a championship team we have to win those games against teams like the Giants.
The Panthers Game has already been shown 100 times on every station in Tampa. We were ready for it in the Panthers game. And now some say they wonder why the Panthers did not go after the ball. But only because this came up. And as you would expect the idiot at channel 10 shows it and stands behind the Panthers because of the unwritten white flag rule. 2 mins left and the Bucs backing up and because of a unwritten rule they quit. All because someone came up with this you don’t play 60 mins. even if it is that close of a game.
Wow did you see the cranium on that bubble headed lame this is all jibberish I think it’s quite innovative to play until the last wistle if they were to recover on that play with one time out would those replacement refs know how to respond to the exact rule
I have gone back and forth on this one, and now I’m back on Schiano’s side. Initially, of course I was with Schiano. Then once I started hearing everyone trashing the Bucs saying it was an unwritten rule, I thought it wasn’t the right thing. Now that credible people (Ditka, Mangini, etc.) are siding with Schiano, I’m back on the right side. The entire league has taken notice that we don’t quit.
I’m with Oahubuc, I don’t understand why everyone is ignoring our guys getting punched in the back of the head after the play. I haven’t heard it even brought up by anyone in the media, and very few fans. Last I checked, that is illegal, and a WRITTEN rule. God forbid them suspend anyone when they play on the NFL Network on Thursday. Wonder if their CB will get fined for the hit on V-Jax. My money says no way.
