“The Quicker We Buy In, The Quicker We Win”

June 9th, 2012

Ronde Barber called the leader of the New Schiano Order “very demanding” on the Man Channel today and said many of his young teammates “became discouraged” last season and “it got a good friend of mine fired.”

The Bucs icon was candid and upbeat during the interview with Andrew Siciliano. You can watch and listen here.

Barber also brought to light a Greg Schiano refrain that his pounding the eardrums of Buccaneers.

“He has a saying, ‘the quicker we buy in, the quicker we win,’ and it feels like we’re doing that right now,” Barber said.

As Joe’s written before, it’s critical for the veteran Bucs like Barber to be completely sold on the New Schiano Order. There are two many “discouraged” young Bucs still around that need strong, positive role models. Joe suspects Schiano & company will only be dialing up the pressure from now through training came, so they can identify the true “Buccaneer Men.”

    Uh Oh! Sounds to me like the typo streak might not end “two” quickly.

  7. Pete 422 Says:

    It sounds like the players don’t have much of a choice, but to buy in if they want to stay on this team.

    “Uh Oh! Sounds to me like the losing streak might not end too quickly.”

    Could you maybe elaborate a little on why you draw this conclusion? I really don’t have any idea how you get there, from this article.

  9. Fritz50 Says:

    Just watched the video, & while Ronde did admit the failures of last year, it seemed mostly upbeat to me. Of course, they always are , at this time of year, aren’t they?

  10. J 2.0 Says:

    Miguel “Gringo Dave” Grande is trolling the message boards again. Fritz you nailed it, there is no way to come to that conclusion after reading the article. I watched the video and read the PFT article on the same subject. My only concern is:

    Will these players continue to buy into Schiano’s philosophy when they encounter struggles?

  11. Bobby Says:

    J 2.0……The whole Shiano philosophy is designed BECAUSE they will encounter struggles. It’s all about accountability and focusing on executing more than it is on winning and losing. Schiano knows that if these guys start playing as a ‘team’ and become accountable to each other that they will be able to fight through any adversity.

    “Uh Oh! Sounds to me like the losing streak might not end too quickly.”

    A play on words. I don’t believe a relatively unsuccessful college coach can come in and change a professional football team’s culture with simple slogans.

    Maybe, we can pound that rock?

    Or, run faster, think smarter, hit harder, etc……

    @Piratic My choice of the word “too” was correct English, your use of the word “two” was not. Please don’t try to correct anyone’s spelling or grammar unless you’re 100% sure of yourself. It makes you look stupid.

  13. Bobby Says:

    Miguel…you really continue to show your ignorance of all things sports related. It’s not a slogan that changes a culture..it’s what’s behind the slogan backing it up. If you think slogans don’t make a difference you are a fool because they do. There has to be belief in the slogan, and that’s the coaches job to instill that belief, but slogans absolutely work. If it were JUST a slogan that would be a different story but it’s not. If you had ever played organized sports instead of being a pot head you would understand these things.

  14. Ladyz Says:

    @Miguel , I’m sorry to have to say this but your and Tommas’s negativity is really getting old. Maybe a few happy, positive slogans would go a long ways for you and others enjoyment of this blog. “as a man thinks, so is he”.

  15. Miguel Grande Says:


    You may be right, darn I’m so ignorant, especially of all things sports related. Having never played Little League.

    The NY Giants won the Super Bowl with “I heart NY” How can the Bucs ever beat that slogan?

  16. tommy Says:

    hes right miquel…..your not real bright, but we dont expect much from you! with all your negative comments, you seem like your just a barrel of laughs!!! sorry your life sucks so bad, you feel the need to take it out on an nfl franchise!! CLASSY!

  17. BigMacAttack Says:

    FYI, the Giants won the Superbowl with poker chips in their pockets given by some schmuck teacher at the start of the playoffs, and it worked. They said they were ‘All in”.

  18. Miguel Grande Says:

    OMG, short and sweet, All in! How can the Bucs ever beat that slogan. Plus ours will never fit on a poker chip. Our players will have to have our slogan printed on a commemorative dinner dish and they might break.

    Everyone knows NYC is the media and slogan capitol of the world and there are a million schmucks that live there. I would say we’re in a rather hopeless situation.

    Hold the presses, I’ve got a great idea for a winning slogan! “Su casa es mi casa!”

    We’re training like a college team – oh goodie goodie.

    @ MG:
    You are freaking hilarious!!

    Let me help you:
    What you’ve failed to understand is that I was taking a crack at a typo (I’m willing to give the benefit of the doubt that it was indeed a typo) in the article, not your usage of a word. I tried to make it obvious to everyone by using quotation marks around the word “two”, but it has just as obviously gone WAY over your head. Again, what you’ve failed to realize is that JOE made an improper use of the word “two”, and I used your (stupid) comment to take a jab at it. Understand?

    So, let me assure you, on this issue I am indeed 100% sure of myself.
    You, however, are the one who is not fully sure, and yet here you are (once again) posting things that make YOU look categorically stupid…but, I’ve come to expect that from you.

    My comments, on the other hand, are not even close to the neighborhood of stupid, (I would venture to say) and are the polar opposite of the drivel that you spew forth, with your thoughts and analysis that sound as though they’re coming from an adolescent.
    If you ARE an adolescent, then please learn how to provide input that actually has a chance of helping the debate along its path, and stop simply being a troll. Most trolls ARE stupid, but not always-which are you? I guess we’ll all find out, because I’m calling you out. I dare you to provide ANY input that doesn’t reek of a juvenile mindset.

    If you are NOT an adolescent, read the first sentence in the previous paragraph, and learn-you’re WAY behind.

    Thanks for the laugh!

    Could Andrew Siciliano, actually be Greg’s brother Drew Schiano?

    Anyway, because of the New Order of Schiano “Two Drink Minimum” at all meetings, the Bucs are making “Yirsty” T-Shirts and Hats that will be sold during training camp.

    The music of choice during training camp this year, will be New Jersey artists like Bon Jovi and Springsteen.
