Team Glazer And Schiano “Talk Often”

October 16th, 2013

A seemingly physically subdued Bucs commander Greg Schiano took to the podium this afternoon for his daily press conference and was mostly barraged with questions about injured players sidelined and those expected to resume playing after being banged up.

Then, there was a question about Team Glazer. Schiano was asked if he has spoken with Team Glazer recently, since the Bucs are mired in spiral of losing 10 of their last 11 games and are still looking for their first win of the 2013 campaign.

Yes, Schiano said, he has spoken with Team Glazer. Quite a bit in fact. But that’s when Schiano slammed the door shut on the question or any possible follow-up when he said with a stern, direct, clear and firm voice, “We talk often. But what we talk about is confidential. But we talk often.”

So apparently, Team Glazer is talking. To probably their most high-profile employee.

    Glazers: “So, Greg, how is the pasta, room temperature, disease levels?

    Schiano: “I thought you guys want to talk about practice. Not our next game, but practice.”

    Glazers: “0-6 coming right up and 0-16 still attainable”.

    Schiano: “Yeah, but we look forward to rushing the other team’s victory formation 11 more times this year”.

    I picture a similar standoff ( for fellow Seinfeld fans ) of George Costanza…played by Greg Schiano and management…played by the Amish owners-begging him to quit and leave the building.

    “But what we talk about is confidential”

    Are you guys talking about how much you suck? Because that’s not confidential, every one already knows ass bag

  4. Joe Says:

    Well played SteveK!

    I would be really concerned if the Glazers didn’t have frequent conversations with Schiano and Dominik at this point. With the way this season is going, they need to demand answers from the people they hired to run their team.

    I don’t comment often anymore but I had to mention SteveK, who I like by the way. SteveK has dropped his MGM label and is now bashing Schiano. Steve and I both wanted to draft Tavon Austin. I wonder if he still likes Austin? lol

    Just the facts with Freeman

    Last 6 Games
    TB Vs NO 2012
    0 41 with 4 Ints

    TB Vs St-Lou 2012
    13 28 with 4 Ints 1 TD

    TB vs Atl 2012
    22 17 1 Td 1 Int

    2013 2 TD and 3 Ints.

    That makes 4 Touchdowns to 12 Interceptions in his last 6 games.

    He asked to be traded before the season started.

    The coach found out he was in drug treatment.

    He missed the team photo

    He missed his camp

    He missed team breakfast.

    He lost team captain.

    The NFL stands for not for long. What was a coach to do when faced with these facts.

    Don’t be mad at the coach for trying to win with a loser.

    The coach should change to the things he does well and he refuses to change this coach has set back his team for years

    The Glazers probably said:

    Glazers: “Greg, doesn’t listen to the fans. Remember how they were screaming to get rid of Freeman? Well, tag…you’re it now Greg. And the media…hell, they’re turning on Doug Martin now. We’re used to it Greg. They complained about us caring more about Manchester U than the Bucs so we spend a quarter billion and they act like we should have spent more to keep guys like Bennett. They hate you till you win Greg. It’s their nature. They believe every rumor or inuendo, no matter how unsubstantiated because it’s easier to believe the worst in a person than believe and hope for the best. That’s where we come in Greg. Unlike the fans Greg…we’re billionaires and we actually call the shots because we own the team. We didn’t make our money by making knee jerk decisions or quitting when things got tough. If you don’t win, at some point we will have to cut our losses and let you go but we’ve seen enough good things to keep you around for awhile in spite of the losses. This Glennon kid, he looks like a good draft pick. Sorry we had to make that move to bounce Freeman but it was time. As businessmen we had to make the move before the trade deadline and take the rest of the year to evaluate what we have in Glennon. Sorry we couldn’t pick up a 7th round pick for Freebow but it is what it is. We’re not saying your seat isn’t warm Greg, it is… but all you have to do is win. Your team hasn’t quit on you and neither have we. The fans?? We all know they have a memory worse than Freeman’s passer rating so they’ll be fine once you throw some W’s up there. Now get out of here. We had the temperature adjusted just for you and we’re freezing our asses off!”

    Schiano: “Actually, you have it set at 71.8 and it should be 72.5 and I don’t care for prawns but I appreciate the vote of confidence. Just hang in there. We’ll get this turned around, and when we’re welcome back. Oh wait, that was for somebody else. Never mind. Good night men.”

    We rarely see and hear from the Glazer boys. But they do watch and listen to us. Fans and Schiano can blame Freeman all they want for the losses, and in some cases (2012 Rams and Saints games) rightfully so; but now Schiano finally has the QB he has sought since high school. So far the results are the same. Glazers have given Schiano the rope. He only has a few more weeks to either make a lasso to snare a few meaningful wins or make a noose for his own neck. In honor of Spanish Heritage month. Adios Muchacho!
