Poor Result, Execution Sets Up Schiano

August 20th, 2012

When Joe watched the Bucs offense and second-string defense struggle mightily against Tennessee, Joe’s first thought was that this was a good thing in the long run.

Why? Because it sets up the New Schiano Order to really crack the whip this week, return hard to the basics and drive home more discipline and focus to the players. The reality is it’s just harder to do that successfully after a game performance is strong.

Speaking on WDAE-AM 620 Sunday, former Bucs tight end Anthony Becht fell into the same camp as Joe. Becht feels good about the timing of the Bucs’ bad loss.

“Going into that second preseason game, trying to amp it up and build on what you did last week [in Miami] when you saw success and had a little bit of that in front of you, you wanted to come out a little stronger in the second game. You kind of look at it and take it with a grain of salt, but I think it’s good with Coach Schiano that he gets a game like this early in the preseason, so now he can really press the buttons a little more,” Becht said.

Becht went on to explain that the Bucs have had a tough training camp and, essentially, the poor results Friday allows that beneficial atmosphere to continue and ramp up successfully for another week, verus the Bucs possibly falling into a “cruising” mentality if they had dominated a meaningless preseason game.

Keep your foot on the pedal, Schiano. (Becht’s entire interview is below.)
