“It’s The Dis-Position”

November 11th, 2013

Plenty of football lessons and history were delivered on the Buccaneers Radio Network special of “Warren’s World,” when Bucs broadcasting chief Jeff Ryan sat down for an hour with Warren Sapp on Friday evening. You can listen here.

In addition to a fun story about telling dirty jokes around Father Dungy, Sapp delivered a neat nugget that explained how Gruden opened Sapp’s eyes when he challenged the “very fabric of our defense and our discipline.”

The discipline part was intriguing, and applied to 2013 Bucs, especially when you consider how the Bucs lost contain against Cam Newton and Russell Wilson in their last two games.

“That’s the biggest thing I try to teach these kids all the time when I meet with them. It’s not the position of a player that gets you beat. It’s the dis-position,” Sapp said. “It’s when you’re not where you’re supposed to be when you’re supposed to be there. Hey, man, trust! That’s why I don’t call it a family; it’s a brotherhood of men.”

Again, as Joe’s written previously, losing contain is a discipline issue, one that’s mind-boggling from a team with a head coach that preaches discipline daily.

    Is Schiano the only NFL coach who preaches discipline??? Hardly. Players still play undisciplined football across the NFL. The ones that play the most disciplined are the ones that win consistently. You can teach but you can’t take the test for the player. That comes on Sundays. I think it’s a combination of things with the Bucs. Poor schemes at the most inopportune times. Sloppy execution and tackling at critical times. Poor play by the offensive line prior to last week. Some is on coaching, some is on the players. They’ve played good enough football to win 5 of their 8 games played but here they are 0-8. They need to play for all four quarters and they will start to win consistently. They have the talent but they don’t have the continuity. I think we win tonight but I wouldn’t bet the house on it.
