Many More Bucs Working On Their Day Off

September 21st, 2012

An interesting nugget to come out of The Josh Freeman Show last night was No. 5 explaining how many more Buccaneers are at One Buc Palace watching film on Tuesdays, the players’ day off. It’s a widepread increase at all positions versus last season, Freeman told Steve Duemig on WDAE-AM 620.

Freeman said the common attitude among players is that they are hungry to learn faster on Wednesdays, when the Bucs begin to install plays and a gameplan for their next opponent during a typical week.

“It just shows you that guys are on it,” Freeman said. “The more they know the more prepared they’re going to be for the game.”

Many Bucs have told Joe there’s a lot more mandatory learning going on at One Buc Palace this season, especially on the defensive side of the ball where players are expected to have knowledge of what’s happening at all positions. So it makes sense that with more responsibilty comes more players eager to do more homework.

An increase in guys voluntarily showing up on their off day is impressive to Joe; iPads with game film are back in Buccaneers’ hands, so they can watch film from home yet many choose to feed their hunger for the game by coming to the facility. The New Schiano Order is inspiring its troops. Hopefully, it lasts.

    Impress the new boss. That makes sense…just keep it up men.

    so they got the ipads back? were they just taken away for training camp?

    Anyone want to bet Parker wasn’t one of those guys. No way he got cut just because. Dom Dom just gave him a new contract.

  5. Karen Hartman Says:

    Glad to hear, they’re definely showing that there is more ways than one to earn those touches, great to hear

    I think it’s a good sign that the “belief” part of the Buccaneer Way is locked in. Accountability as well. By studying together they hold one another accountable. This is done in ministry as well.

    My theory is that Schiano wanted to make sure they went over the physical things first to establish key elements of their belief system.

    Vic, Parker’s contract wasn’t much, and in order to stay he HAD to have a new contract. I think he lost his job because he didn’t show improvement in game play or practice.

    The familiar suroundings and awesome video tech equipment available, and a first class kitchen & dining room why not be at One Buc.

    I guess we now know why certain players are in the doghouse while lesser players get all the reps.
