“It Would Be A Shame If He Only Had Two Years”October 17th, 2013
America’s storied NFL insider, Peter King of Sports Illustrated and NBC Sports, took a break from olive oil-lapping, popcorn-munching, coffee-slurping, fried-chicken-eating, oatmeal-loving, circle-jerking, beer-chugging, cricket-watching, scone-loathing, college football-naïvete and baseball box score-reading to talk all things Greg Schiano and the Bucs on WDAE-AM 620 this morning.
King delivered a strong message: giving up on Greg Schiano would be a mistake.
King painted Schiano as an extremely smart, superior football man and relayed a discussion of Schiano’s smarts he had with a Rams executive. “It would be a shame if he only had two years to build an NFL team.
As for Schiano’s chances of survival, King wouldn’t put a 2013 win total on it. “I depends how it ends,” said King, who believes Team Glazer will have an easy decision if the Bucs stop playing hard.
Joe doesn’t buy that Schiano is the super genius King describes. Not that Schiano is stupid, but Joe’s not seeing where Schiano is, say, smarter than half the coaches in the NFL.
You can catch the entire King interview below. He dives deep into all things Josh Freeman and how history will view Schiano in that drama.
