Schiano: “Huge Strides” To Make In DisciplineOctober 22nd, 2013
The head coach who last month said, “you can’t load the entire roster in a two-year period,” has now made it clear he needs more than two years to craft a disciplined team.
Joe can’t believe what comes out of Greg Schiano’s mouth these days. Hey, Coach. Just how long does the Schiano regime need to produce consistently solid football? Let us all know. Please.
Schiano responded on his radio show last night on WDAE-AM 620 to a Bucs fan who expressed a lot of frustration. One thing troubling the fan was team discipline, and Schiano quickly to the blame-Raheem card.
“Make no doubt. Make no mistake. There was issues on discipline on so many different levels in this organization when we took over. Have we made huge strides? No doubt. Are there still huge strides to be made? Absolutely. And we’ll continue to do that,” Schiano said.
How long did it take Jim Harbaugh to have a disciplined team? What about John Fox when he arrived at the quarterback-challenged mess in Denver? Things aren’t exactly falling apart in Buffalo or Miami? Raheem’s Bucs were pretty darned disciplined to win 10 games in 2010 with 10 rookies seeing significant playing time.
Joe’s not sure Schiano understands the modern-day timetables of the NFL. That’s awfully odd for a coach who insisted he has the “components” in place to win now.
