“People Are More Scared Of Him Than Anything”

September 7th, 2012

Are Buccaneers afraid of the Panthers? Afraid of the IRS? Afraid of what those girls running around Blue Martini might be carrying?

Nope. Lots of Bucs tremble at the thought of letting down the leader of the New Schiano Order. Roy Miller explained to beat writer Rick Stroud in a piece published by the Sarasota Herald-Tribune.

“I don’t think any team, any player could frighten us more than messing up for (Greg) Schiano,” defensive tackle Roy Miller said of the Bucs’ head coach. “I think we all want to do exactly what he tells us to do. People are more scared of him than anything. That’s a good thing.”

Well, it’s clear that order is in full swing on the Bucs, and there’s a wave of healthy fear rumbling through the locker room at One Buc Palace right now. Whether it will equal wins or not is a mystery.

Speaking on WDAE-AM 620 yesterday, Derrick Brooks talked about how much he loves Greg Schiano’s commitment to his ways. Brooks’ only concern was what might happen to the Bucs if players defect from the current buy-in after some losses. Schiano won’t change, Brooks said, but the roster might have to.

    The Bucs are staring to sound like a certain team from New England, hopefully it will only take a season for them to start playing like them.

    Don’t hold your breath.

    (turning blue) too late…

    In with the physical out with the Finesse! In the NFL you have to be mentally tough as well as physically. That’s what the preseason tests were all about! Who’s got the Ball’s to tough it out and who’s going to fold like a little B!tch…..(Winslow & Miguel)

  5. Blind Melon Says:

    Good. Hold them (as well as himself) accountable.

    Do your job. Play for your team. Sounds easy – right?

    I guess there will be no after game drinks with team 🙁

    “Don’t hold your breath.”

    Agreed. I’m expecting great things from the Bucs, including another Superbowl in the near future, but people have to understand that the Patriots were an accident. If the starting QB had not been injured they may not have discovered Brady.

    I really doubt Dan-O is the next Tom Brady.

  8. Miguel Grande Says:

    Sounds like a recipe for disaster. Has any head coach ever been fragged before?

    Oh yeah, Morris last year. Valentine this year.

  9. Miguel Grande Says:

    Gruden in 2008.

  10. OAR Says:

    “Patriots were an accident”?
    I seem to remember them going 11-5 without said Brady. That’s not an accident. You act like Brady is the only reason they are winners. Don’t get me wrong, he definately is an exceptional QB, but dang the rest of the team is not an accident.

  11. Eric Says:

    I am afraid of him too.

  12. dan Says:

    its pretty hard to accidentally draft someone.

  13. Jonny 3.3 Says:

    It is a good thing for now, but if the Bucs do not win well enough for a prolonged period of time, this kind of drillmaster attitude will get stale quickly.

  14. Lion Says:

    Yeah, look at what happened to the players that were recently released by the Bucs. Most of them no longer have jobs and it makes Schiano look like a genius. The players need to be scared for their jobs, something that clearly wasn’t taking place with Rah Rah.

  15. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    A little adversity will actually be helpful because it’ll expose the players who only buy in when the going is good. Once they are revealed Schiano will know who to release after the season (or if it’s bad enough release them during the season). Being exposed to tough times reveals character (or the lack of it). Don’t expect it all to be rainbows and lollipops this first season or you’ll be sorely disappointed. More roster renovation needs to take place before this team is perfectly in the image Schiano desires.

  16. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    As for what Miguel said about the players getting a coach fired like with Morris or Gruden, that won’t happen with Schiano. Why? Because he’s more like Belichick than those other coaches. Could you ever imagine a player revolt getting Belichick fired? Not in a million years. He’d cut all 53 players from the roster and sign a whole new team before he’d allow that to happen. It’s obvious that Schiano is cut from the same cloth.

  17. Miguel Grande Says:

    Miguel believes that if the Little General fires 53 players, he won’t be able to replace them. You can’t find 53 real football players that can or will sprint the dreaded and unnecessary 110X16 gauntlets in the Florida sun. He’ll have to sign 300 players to find 53. Then he’ll have to forfeit a half dozen games until they recover enough to play.

    Maybe that’s why Belicheat makes linemen sprint 40X10.

    How butch is that?

    Grande believes that extending the losing streak to 26 games will not endear him to the Glazers or the shrinking fan base.

    Might as well change their name to the Black Out Buccaneers.

  18. OAR Says:

    Wah wah wah…the little general…wah wah wah…110X16 gaunlets…wah wah wah… he’s so butch…wah wah wah!
    You can save yourself some time to nap and by just CUT/PASTE and REPEAT!!! Oh never mind, it looks like you already do that!

    “Brooks’ only concern was what might happen to the Bucs if players defect from the current buy-in after some losses.”

    This is a non-concern. We’ve seen what happens to players that defect from the buy-in after some losses.

  20. Miguel Grande Says:

    “Brooks’ only concern was what might happen to the Bucs if players defect from the current buy-in after some losses.”

    Don’t freak out Oar, Miguel admits he cut and pasted the above statement. Grande saved 30 seconds, but lost that time by having to address your paranoid outbursts.

    Brooks is concerned because he has been in the Buc locker room and even witnessed a locker room revolt firsthand in 2008 with Coach Gruden. Probably even participated.

    I knew Brooks was no Little General fan because I’ve actually seen him put his hands on his hips which breaks a Schiano cardinal rule.

    Wah, wah, wah, again, what’s your point? Cyberbullying other people’s opinions??

  21. OAR Says:

    Man your worse than my brothers kids.
    My point is your repeated opinions are getting old and make you sound like a WHINNING CRY BABY!!!!
    Thought the “cut and paste” comment would have gotten the point across!
