Suspension Won’t Change Schiano’s ApproachSeptember 16th, 2013
The leader of the New Schiano Order made no mention of Dashon Goldson’s one-game suspension on his radio show this evening. However, the head coach made it clear that he has no interest in the Bucs’ dialing back their defensive intensity.
“One of the reasons we’re playing so well on defense is we’re playing so darn hard,” Schiano said earlier on WDAE-AM 620.
Schiano went on to say he’s fearful of anything that might take any of that intensity away.
Dashon Goldson will keep working on refining his “strike zone,” Schiano said, and Goldson will continue to hone his tackling craft without sacrificing playing fast, hard and, essentially, do what the Bucs are paying him $8 million a year to do.
Joe can’t blame Schiano for being disinterested in dialing back his defense’s bone-crushing approach. The defense is working. It’s not perfect, but it might be the team’s best hope unless a Josh Freeman revival occurs.
