Team Glazer Watching Schiano Revival Tour

December 8th, 2013

SchianoscreamBillsWhat’s stirring inside the collective brains of Team Glazer? Joe sure would love to know.

The New Schiano Order has now revived itself from the depths of 0-8, MRSA, sleepy-leaky Josh Freeman, brutally painful losses, and repeated media beatings to emerge as winners of four of five games.

Greg Schiano is not a great NFL head coach yet, but Joe wouldn’t want to bet against him winning Survivor one day. This turnaround has been historic.

So what does that mean? If Joe dives into those Glazer minds, Joe envisions a consensus that Schiano only has to win one more game — against a tough schedule — to return in 2014. The Bucs losing their final three games would at least make Team Glazer think long and hard about the direction of the franchise. But if the Bucs can take one from the Niners, Rams (on the road) or Saints, then that leaves the Bucs at 5-3 in the second half of the season.

Joe can’t see Team Glazer sitting around drinking fancy vodka martinis saying, ‘Schiano finished up 5-3 against a tough schedule and the guys played hard, so let’s fire his ass.’ That’s not going to happen.

Again, Joe can’t call Schiano a great coach. The guy’s never had a winning season and won’t this year. And he’s made some mind-numbing, on-field decisions. But Joe also couldn’t call label him a bust if he emerges with five wins out of the depths of hell.

Regardless, Joe’s darn glad the Bucs are going to decide Schiano’s fate on the field. That’s the way it should be. There’s enough talent on the field to win another game and compete down the stretch.

    Watching the highlights from around the league
    there are some worse teams than the BUCS out there
    Even Buffalo was worse than the BUCS today
    Schiano will not win Five this year
    but will he survive with Four?

  2. PRBucFan Says:

    We’ll win more this season.

    The way this defense is playing right now our offense won’t need to do much to ensure that happens.

  3. Walter Says:

    We’ll beat the Rams and possibly the Niners if Kaepernick has a bad game.. Not the Saints.

  4. PRBucFan Says:

    Well we almost beat the saints already once this season.

    It could happen.

  5. Walter Says:

    Anything could happen.

  6. Rob Says:

    The Bucs aren’t beating San Fransisco. Their defense is going to give the Bucs rookies on offense fits.

  7. Mr. Patrick Says:

    The Glazers must be really happy that their team can now win games against the NFL’s other Bottom Dwellers

  8. stevek Says:

    If we can only win one more game this year, I hope it is against the Niners. We need to return the good ol’ ass whoopin they put on us a couple of years ago.

    Plus, I want to see Goldson hit Kaeperinck (legally).

  9. That Guy Says:

    The key to Gregory’s “revival” is getting to play against lousy teams. And even then, it’s a crap shoot, i.e. the Jets and Cardinals.

  10. stevek Says:


    The Jets won because Josh Freeman was stinking up the place still. We lost to Arizona, in Glennon’s first start, and very quietly Zona has put together a strong campaign (playoffs).

  11. PRBucFan Says:

    Funny cause our team has had some pretty close games with “good teams” this year.

  12. stevek Says:

    ^That Guy**

  13. PRBucFan Says:

    The Panthers have our number right now though.

  14. NY Buc Says:

    Whether it’s against lousy teams or not, a win in the NFL is a confidence builder for the players and coaches, and it feels pretty damn good for the fans too.

  15. Buc Neckid Says:

    CBS called Greg Schiano
    Mike Schiano all day
    even on their post game show = No Respect

  16. Stranger Says:


    We lost to the Jets because our coaching staff sucks and they still suck.

  17. That Guy Says:

    Remember in the Jets game when Gregory decided to play for a field goal at the end instead of going for a TD that would’ve iced the game. Gregory lost that game because he’s a moron.

  18. PRBucFan Says:

    It’s so easy to criticize NFL head coaches as if we could do a better job lol.

  19. Adam L. Says:

    6-2 in the last 8 saves his job. Anything less, can him.

  20. bigpoppabuc Says:

    Jets, Saints, Seahawks… Three games that we gave away that would make us 7-6 right now with a fighting chance. This season has been rough for multiple reasons, but I’ve gotta give major props to Schiano. After the Seattle game, I jumped on the firing squad, but he’s shown some toughness and ability to control the locker room moral even through bad circumstances. I think he’s a hell of a scout and can obviously develop young talent. My biggest concerns are his Schematic beliefs and ability to make great decisions IN GAME, under pressure. Still gotta see more these next few games in order to feel positive for next year.

  21. Capt. Tim Says:

    Fun to watch today! Hope we keep it up rest of year.
    If we play like that the rest of the year, then I hope Schiano returns.
    Tough games left. But if we play like we did today, we’ll be more than competitive!

  22. BucFan 20 Says:

    Ah yes the usual bottom deweller fans show up that can’t be happy with any win at all. WHY do you even follow our team?
    Anything can happen on any given Sunday ( See Detroit Lions).
    See Drew Brees last week? 0/8 on passes over 15 yards .
    I think I’ll be happy with the win.

  23. Stranger Says:


    It’s easy to criticize NFL head coaches when they do poor job with the talent they have. It doesn’t matter what we can and can’t do. When someone is doing poor job and gets poor results, it’s clear as day.

  24. PRBucFan Says:

    Lol please

    It wouldn’t matter if we had Vince Lombardi here people would still act as if they had any clue how to run an NFL team as a head coach.

    Funny stuff

  25. PRBucFan Says:

    Russel Wilson is the real deal.

    He faces pressure and literally does not flinch.

  26. Stranger Says:

    If we had the modern equivalent of Vince Lombardi, we would be winning games a lot more games. We probably wouldn’t have so many penalties.

  27. PRBucFan Says:

    My point is winning or not

    People would still find ways to act as if they could do better 😉

  28. BucNasty!!! Says:

    See Mike Glennon no completions in the second half??? How bout that. I’m not drinking the cool aid I can’t stand another season of this. The last three games will tell it all. If he’s just bullying bad opponents or he can beat quality talent cuz he hasn’t been able to prove the latter an thus is already year 2 not 1.

  29. fastclipper Says:

    I have watched the Jets game 3 times. We did not lose because of Freeman. He put the team in position to win. Trust me.

  30. Que589 Says:

    Beating bad teams and playing close games against good teams is fools gold. Team lacks discipline and precision.

  31. stevek Says:

    Reading the posts above, you wouldn’t think that “our” team just won by 21 points.

  32. Clowney Says:

    The Little General led Rutgers to eleven years of mind numbing mediocrity and some maneuvered his way to become the highest paid public employee in New jersey’s history.

    He is practiced at the art of deception but you are what your record says you are. Less than mediocre.

  33. Clowney Says:


  34. Fritz50 Says:

    If Schiano keeps on playing to NOT LOSE, like he did in the 2nd half today, he’ll lose my support. Just once I’d like to watch my team put a dagger in the chest of the other team, instead of 3 & outs to eat up the clock, TO START THE 3rd QUARTER, for cryin out loud!! The only reason we won that game was lights out play by the defense. Sully started the 3rd Qtr trying to run out the clock, with predictable results. Total futility on the offensive side. If the Bills Offense had managed to solve our Defense, even a little, we’d have been down the tubes. In my mind, it’s the same sort of safe thinking that cost us the Jets and several other games. Yes, we won the game, yes we’re now 4 and 9, Woo-Hoo, start the parade!!! Life is good.

  35. Vic Says:

    I’m sold if they win on more. Might even fork over for season tickets and cancel my vacation plans for next fall. Go Bucs!

  36. Clwilljr Says:

    The bucs are a bad football team the bills are a really bad football team so anybody think different is crazy we cant compete with better teams in this league next week the niners will blow the bucs out just like Panthers did

  37. Buc1987 Says:

    I think Schiano is going to stay anyways. Even with just 4 wins.

  38. Buc1987 Says:

    “The Little General led Rutgers to eleven years of mind numbing mediocrity and some maneuvered his way to become the highest paid public employee in New jersey’s history.”

    Yah sure Clowney the Little General “college coach” can win games though in the mighty NFL. So he does have what it takes to win games in the NFL and not just college.

  39. BIG SIR Says:

    LOL at “historic”. Bucs are 4-9 and yet this is somehow acceptable. We will get mud stomped the rest of the season. Wonder if one of the Joes will still be chubbed up for Schiano. I think Joe is trolling Buc fans.

  40. BIG SIR Says:

    You know what team had every reason to start the season 0-8? The Patriots. Hernandez drama, no Gronk, no Welker, rookie WRs, lost their best RB for 10 weeks yet they are 10-3. No surprise because they are expected to win. Yet Joe would have you believe that somehow all the distractions we had at the beginning of the year should make it ok for the Bucs to go 5-11 after going 7-9 the prior year. What a loser mentality we have developed. Sad.

  41. lurker Says:

    the pats also have a hall of fame qb, we don’t at this point

  42. Harry Says:

    It is so funny how the tone changes in here depending on if its a “W” or a “L”

  43. BIG SIR Says:


    Doesn’t matter. The fact is they were talent devoid, had off field distractions and suffered big time injuries but were still expected to win. Didn’t miss a beat. Meanwhile, we use our issues as excuses, claim to be better than our record, and accept below .500 football. We are a loser franchise that has embraced a loser mentality because we beat 3 bad teams and 1 ok team. Let’s just ignore that fact that the Panthers just whipped us Blitz style. I’ll be interested to see how many of you fall off the wagon once the Niners whoop us next week.

  44. IdahoBucsfan Says:

    Our turnaround started Before the seahawk game.. No one else has played them as close as we did at their house over the past 2 years.. I’d give us some credit for the way we played that game! When Glennon passed for 10 TDs and only 1 Int. you clowns said it didn’t matter cause we lost, when we win, you bitch about his numbers! You are not “fans” you are sad individuals. Hey, Pick a team that you think will win every game, and post your rants on their blogs!

  45. Brian Jones Says:

    We could not come up with the years biggest upset against Seattle (which I predicted). But not this coming Sunday – we will beat the Niners at Home to close out Ray Jay for the season. We will continue on and will beat the Rams on the road. All depending on who is playing in the Saints game for NO – we could win this one as well. Look for Schiano to return next season – and look for my smile because everyone thought I was crazy and laughed for standing behind him. #dontfiregregschiano
