GMC: Schiano Never Lost Players

November 20th, 2013


Joe knows many Bucs fans, desperate to see Bucs commander Greg Schiano leave the area, had their calendars circled for when they believed the Bucs would start to fold internally, and pull a Bucs 2011 stunt where they quit on Raheem Morris.

It didn’t happen, and instead, the Bucs have looked like a totally different team in the past three weeks.

Bucs stud defensive tackle mocked at people expecting the Bucs to quit.

Last night, McCoy appeared on “Late Hits,” co-hosted by Alex Marvez and Bill Polian, heard exclusively on SiriusXM NFL Radio, GMC noted that people who claimed Bucs players were about ready to shovel dirt in Schiano’s face simply don’t know Schiano or the Bucs locker room.

@Geraldini93: “Everyone is entitled to their opinion but Coach Schiano never lost this locker room. No one paid attention to those rumors”

Anyone who can see a game and isn’t walking with a white cane knows the Bucs never quit on Schiano. They played hard. That is part of the reason the team has — at least in November — turned the corner.

The question that now remains, has the team turned the corner enough to ensure a return for Schiano for the 2014 season?

    I think schiano comes back if they continue to play hard, we win the games we should win, are close against the tough teams and if the fan base continues to grow quieter. Nobody thinks we’ll pull a playoff spot out of this but we have to be playing respectable football the rest of the year

    I think the Bucs will win against Detroit, Buffalo, and St.Louis and maybe against the Saints if New Orleans locks up the South by the final week. As long as the team continues to play hard and finishes 6-2 or 5-3 over the last eight, I would support the return of Schiano.

    If that happens, I would suggest some coaching staff changes, but as long as there is no quit and the team can win some more games, let’s see what Schiano and Glennon can do. It’s essentially a win-win for fans; either Schiano and Glennon do well, and in doing so the team has it’s coach and a viable QB, or Glennon craps the bed and he is moved to backup QB for the new coaching regime and it’s choice of QB. I’ll always root for the Bucs so I hope the turnaround continues.

    The dude with the “white cane” would be listening to the Bucs on the radio, as well as reading…so he would know as well…trust me, I am legally blind myself. I am still not sold on Shiano, but I would say that the team has not quit on him. Maybe he will develope over time, like we have seen with plenty of coaches.

  4. Biggun Says:

    Yup he comes back…. Club would be stupid to cut him…. He represents change and sometimes change comes hard, but I would rather have a coach that weathered the sh!t storm this guy took. He’s a leader in my books!

  5. ShutTheBucUp Says:

    I think Schiano’s return will mostly be bound to Mike Glennon’s success. If he continues to show promise and improvement, I don’t think Schiano will get the boot, seeing as Glennon is his guy. If the rest of the team packs it in (which I don’t see happening), then there will likely be a new coaching staff next spring. We have a pretty tough schedule ahead, and we are missing key players, but we should be able to eek out a few more wins.

  6. Tim Says:

    Oh no, what is the Big Log to do! First Davin came out to support the coach and now GMC.

    Haters going to hate.

    If Glennon looks good, the defense keeps up the intensity and we pull out another 2-3 wins I feel Schiano will be back.

    You don’t fire a coach after two seasons. If Schiano is fired so is Dominick.

    Duemig was hilarious last night still trying to justify how schiano still needs to be fired and how the players have tuned him out and blah blah. Duemig was wrong again!

  9. givemeball Says:

    I don’t see them firing Schiano this year now regarless of the record, unless the team quits on him and if that hasn’t happen yet its not going to happen..Schiano haters like LITTLE DOG STEVE DUEMIG you better get used to Schiano, I think he is going to be here a long time!!!

  10. Brian Jones Says:

    It amazes me all the hate still lingering for this man. I’ve said it for weeks – Schiano is our coach for the unforeseen future. He was beat up – from all of the chants calling for his firing and all the hate thrown at him, from the losses that should have been W’s. Yes, several things could have been done differently and losing sucks, but I never turned my back on our team or coach, I fully supported them. He never lost the locker room during the MRSA situation and the Freeman debacle. Why? Because he knows what is right and what he was trying to instill within the One Buc walls. He was forming a family and yes, he is a damn good coach. The media, the embarrassing chants calling for his head only brought the organization closer and stronger. That meeting with Brian and Joel a couple weeks ago brought up his spirits! #itsabucslife
