Schiano And Belicheat Plotting Joint Practice

June 25th, 2012

"Look Bill, I love you like a father and all, but we must keep that 7-on-7 drill to under 3 1/3 minutes."

Make no mistake that wily Bill Belicheat is doing whatever he can to help the New Schiano Order. Greg Schiano himself detailed this two weeks ago during a radio interview.

So it’s no surprise to learn that the Boston Herald is reporting that the Bucs and Patriots have been examining having joint practices in August, before the two teams square off in the Bucs’ final home preseason game.

The Herald has learned the Pats and Bucs have been exploring the possibility to hold joint practices prior to their Aug. 24 preseason game in Tampa, which makes sense given Belichick’s relationship with new Bucs coach Greg Schiano. If it happens, it would be a short week for the Patriots, who host the Eagles on Aug. 20. But again, nothing is certain.

One would assume the Patriots would come to Tampa to practice, though Joe wouldn’t be shocked if Schiano wasn’t interested in getting the Bucs out of town for a few days to bond and train in Massachusetts.

Regardless of the venue, this can only be a good thing for the Buccaneers and their young roster. Aside from the good example of Team Belicheat, the Bucs would get to see first-hand how a championship team operates. And it could help bring home Schiano’s radical culture change for the doubters that might be on the roster.

    Is it really necessary to keep calling him Billicheat? It’s getting a bit redundant. On a side note, this is a huge deal and it should go a long way in helping Schiano make the transition to the NFL.

    Recipe for disaster. Fights will break out everywhere, starting with Aqib Talib.

  3. raphael Says:

    are the Pats Filming the practices ?

  4. RIs_Buc Says:

    Rhode Island Buc can only wish its a public practice…

    Lion: yes, yes it is.

  5. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Many of you who get your panties in a wad because Joe gives people nicknames are the very reason he continues to do it. Who really cares? It’s just for fun, this isn’t CNN. Lighten up.

  6. Paul W. Says:

    This is joeBUCSfan… Not joeNFLfan! Any person on any other nfl team is the enemy and joe treats them as such. Thank you for being one of us joe!

    Can we refer to Sean Payton simply as BountyDouche?

  8. Nick Says:

    For someone who didn’t want to “mock the man” and his drill Sargent ways, you do an awful lot of mocking at his attention to details. Just sayin…

  9. eric Says:

    You guys need to lighten up.

    Joint practices with the Patriots sounds good to me. Just so long as Gerald steers clear of that “damnnnnn! Did you see Brady” routine.

    That wasnt his shining moment.

  10. Eric Says:

    And it would be nice to have a professional team working out in Tampa, if only for a couple of days.

    Haven’t had that in years.

  11. Drew Says:

    Yawn…….. can’t wait for the season and daily news updates.

  12. st. louis Bucs fan Says:

    if Bellicheck were in Tampa and won 3 SB’s for the Bucs you guys wouldnt call him Bellicheat, its old and time to move on. the season cant get here soon enough…. cant wait for REAL news stories. BUC IT IM OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. Stevek Says:

    No more calling wily O’l Bill, “Bellicheat”.

    Let’s take a poll on it, please Mr. Joe?

    I am CERTAIN that Schiano is not keen on your insult to his mentor.

    However, I believe everyone gets a flipping kick out off “….circle jerking Peter King”. Please keep that moniker LOL.

  14. Garv Says:

    IMO Bill Belichick is the best HC in the NFL and certainly one of the best ever.
    And if the Bucs and Pats want to get together for practice, I’m all for it.

    No big deal, just what’s known to some of us as a good idea and common sense.

    Buccaneers in 2012?

    Can’t WAIT!!!

  15. Joe Says:


    As far as Bill “Belicheat,” Joe knows what he is doing.

  16. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Bill Bellicheat. That is all.

  17. Drew Says:


    Not quite sure where you were going with the link, but if I’m reading you right. Joe likes to have fun and Belicheat is Joe’s way of having fun. Right?

  18. Hawaiian Buc Says:


    It means Joe knows how to “move the needle”, hence the success of this site. Giving people nicknames is part of the charm of the site. I personally could give 2 sh!ts as to whether or not the nickname is accurate or not, and I’m a little confused as to why anyone else would either.

  19. McSiD Says:

    Keep it up Joe. Almost time for a new season and whole lot more nicknames.

  20. Brown Bag Says:

    If the two coaches get alomng, I see no harm in this. Our players need all the motivation they can get. Being around a winning dynasty and seeing their efforts in practice can only reinforce the need to work harder.

    i imagine OchoCinco is starting to run his mouth only because he is around slackers. Notice how quickly he shut up and proved his try value when around winners.

    Bellicheat is easier to spell.
