Bucs Now Have Leaders

February 18th, 2012

Joe’s good friend Justin Pawlowski, aka, “The Commish,” has been won over by the new coaching staff of the Bucs.

The thing that Justin likes the most is how new head coach Greg Schiano and offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan seem to resonate respect when they are in a room, which Pawlowski detailed in a recent podcast on his site, CommishOnline.com.

“Isn’t it amazing that Mike Sullivan talks about gravitating toward Greg Schiano and what Schiano stands for? You can tell a leader from the moment he walks in the room, he commands respect and commands your attention and that is something I don’t think Raheem Morris ever did when he was coach. He was more like the popular guy in college that was throwing parites. I don’t think he inspired and ignited a fire. I talked to many players and that’s the feeling I got.

“Is [Morris] a good defensive backs coach? Absolutely. But NFL coaches are a differnt breed and Raheem Morris didn’t fit that breed. Greg Schiano fits that stereotype of that role as a leader.”

Joe has a hunch this coaching staff will not put up with the shenanigans of the past. Shoot, if a certain linebacker stands flat-footed and watches running backs run circles around him as he is wont to do, Bryan Cox just might tear his head off.

This is just what the Bucs need. Teaching, yes. But no more nonsense like not knowing plays in Week 17.

    While some like capt tim predicted rahrah to be the next shula or lombardi, i was calling him basically a buddy and cheerleader.

    I think that the players who spoke giving Justin the feeling that rahrah was like the “party guy” from College fits better. The players were his buddies and the games were just parties, unfortunately hardly anyone showed up bc the parties that used to be thrown at that location were WAY better.

    When I think back about how unprofessional things were here for 3 years and how most of you were acting like rahrah was a legit hc – i am amused.

    To think that we let respected football men like bates, jags, mangurian, richy b, wash etc be fired from here while we kept this total moron is disgusting.

    Good one Justin. Shaun King might start a war with you over this, but I sure agree with 100% on this point.

  3. Sgt Mike Says:

    Agreed. Maybe Jags should have been the HC. Maybe not. Hopefully this staff will instill accountability and better playing fundamentals to at the very least make us competitive and fun to watch again. Go Bucs!

    Mangurian was a REAL Coach, and got us to 10 and 6 with a makeshift O Line.
    Yet, because Olson didn’t get along with him, Tampa fired him, go figure ?

    Of course Schiano “fits the stereotype of…leader” he’s White… if the bucs had hired a black college coach and filled the coaching spots with college coaches I’m sure the media would’ve had a completely different tone about it…

  6. Buc You 2.2 Says:

    That’s a racist statement and should be removed.

    As I recall, Joe has banned posters from saying raheem is black thats why he got all the excuses.

    Double standard?
