Schiano Dumps Patriots

March 28th, 2019

In a surprise move this afternoon, former Bucs commander Greg Schiano announced he won’t be the Patriots defensive coordinator this year after all.

Schiano issued a statement that said he wanted to focus on faith and family to avoid regrets later in life.

No word on whether Bill Belicheat will try to lure Mike Smith out of retirement.

    He and Michael Bennett could not co-exist. They couldn’t do it in Tampa and they weren’t going to do it in New England.

  2. 813bucboi Says:


    i doubt he’ll he back in the NFL now….no one says no to the PATS….LOL….


  3. Walter Says:


    Sounds about right. Those two can’t be part of the same defense.

  4. Jonathan Lipnicki Says:

    Good for Gregor…I liked certain things he brought to the table. I applaud anyone who puts family first.

  5. K_bassuka Says:

    Nothing surprises me out of this nut job.

  6. straightcashhomey Says:

    Dude duzn’t work here anymore….!??

    Crowell to Raiders on VERY economical 1 year “up to” $2.5 mill deal, likely around $1.5 base with incentives. But no, BA had to have 30 year old Ellington after 18 months on the couch for $800k!?…which could have been spent on Crowell age 26.


  7. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    LOL…what’s REALLY Stupid is that the Cowgirls just received Robert Quinn in a trade from the Dolphins for a 2020 6th round pick.

  8. Iron Wombat Says:

    odds are pretty high dude was shown the door, but allowed to exit gracefully to save some face.

  9. Locked In Says:

    Jilted at the alter. Bill must be felling Beli-cheated.

  10. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    Schiano had the bucs defense playing at its highest level since the kiffen days. WTF is BA & licht doing? Crowell is so much better than any RB on this roster & that trade for quinn? maybe he was too similar to jpp in the bowles defense. BUT passing on Crowell is a basic licht weight move

  11. Dewey Selmon Says:

    Toes on the unemployment line! again…

  12. Buccernutter Says:

    More ignorant commentary from the world’s dumbest fans^^^

    There’s evidently character concerns about crowell. Fact dolphins only accepted that indicates there’s issues with Quinn.

    Suggesting schiano is better than ba in any way has got to be some of the dumbest things I have read on this site and my God, this site has extremely dumb posts on a daily basis from fans.

  13. 813bucboi Says:


    damn….thats crazy…


  14. Tampa Bay Demon Says:

    Schiano nixed Belichick?

    Um, really???


    Must assume there are things going on in Greg’s life that need immediate attention…. much more important than football.

  15. Cannon Says:

    “No word on whether Bill Belicheat will try to lure Mike Smith out of retirement.”

    I nearly fell out of my chair at that one…

  16. Shayne Says:

    Probably for the best for the Pats Schiano is a joke
    So is trading for Robert Quinn guys production fell off the face of the earth almost 5 years ago now, he has possible concussion issues and was traded twice in two seasons. We hate GMC but would have loved Quinn on this team???

  17. straightcashhomey Says:


    You DON’T KNOW anything about ANY supposed “character concerns” which you totally fabricated a $$munch. Nothing of the sort has EVER been mentioned by the Browns or Jets, or coaches, anyone. Your farce sh!t don’t work round here.


  18. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Lol…people complaining about Crowell.

  19. The Fighting Schiano’s Says:

    The NFL hasn’t seen the last of the Fighting Schiano’s.

  20. J Says:

    None of us knows anything for sure about any of the stories floating around out there, so those TRYING to call out others for knowledge or lack there of should look in the mirror and STFU.

  21. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Faith & Family are very good reasons for a millionaire…….if those are truly the reasons…..maybe he didn’t approve of Robert Kraft’s extra curricular activities.

  22. DooshLaRue Says:

    I think Quinn’s contract is more than we could handle, or want to for that matter.
    Unless of course your name is Joe and you were pining for him soooo hard this time last year.

    My my my

  23. Not there yet Says:

    Hahaha he was feeling the pressure and couldn’t live up to expectations, I bet they already have someone else lined up and ready to go

  24. D-Rome Says:

    Dewey, I laughed out loud for about a minute at that.

  25. PriMech54 Says:

    translation: I realized we lost our top pass rusher to free agency and they traded for the guy that triggered my small man’s complex back in Tampa…

  26. DaBux Says:

    Let’s see….Bellicheat had to choose between Toes on the Line or Bennett. Good choice cheat! Maybe Greg and his scummy OSU alum buddies can find some dirtbag 2A school in Ohio to coach for.

  27. Loyaltotheend Says:

    Michael Bennett and Pats fans are celebrating

  28. Mitch Says:

    Uhh a simple google search reveals Crowell was arrested for felony weapons charges, was reprimanded for his attitude, and failing a drug test. He hasn’t done anything recently that I can find, but he does not have a great record.

    Below is a snippet of why he went undrafted:

    “Crowell transferred to Alabama State for the remainder of his career and, despite putting up good numbers in his lone year in Montgomery, Ala., went undrafted because of character issues. In fact the draft analysis of Crowell said that he was “extremely immature and has a history of off-field issues. Can be difficult to coach.”

    Sure people grow, but I’m not sure I’d like someone like that in the current Bucs locker room.

  29. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    So the bucs are 5-11 and at the bottom of the nfl & some ppl dont want crowell and then im assuming you didnt want hunt either? im sure the browns fans are upset with their team or the steel curtain doinf coke before the super bowl or the 90s cowboys partying the night away…. just turn the bucs into winners, no one is saying go shoot guns or do meth with the bucs players; just get winners who play w their hair on fire on sunday afternoons

  30. Mike Smith Says:

    Call me

  31. Odabby Says:

    How bout the J Howard trade tho …. smh

  32. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    Eagles just gave up a 6th round pick for Jordan Howard. Why TF would we not do that?

  33. BucNole Says:

    there are some silly posters on this site
    can you guys lay off the weed before posting . . . thnx

  34. Joseph Mamma Says:

    No word on whether Bill Belicheat will try to lure Mike Smith out of retirement.

    Actually the latest reporting is suggesting that Belicheat will be asking Jim Bates to dust off the ol’ playbook.

  35. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    mike evans goat!!!! right…. wth is licht doing, another rb thats better than anyone on our roster, the eagles keep getting better somehow they have cap space and add to a super bowl team, licht & co sit and let the gap get wider

  36. straightcashhomey Says:

    @J’s…mouthed off before lately in the last two weeks.

    And “J” is a new handle. So you put the two together and you still get a worthless white noise kitten, that never added anything of note prior to the handle change, and hasn’t offered anything new or of note, certainly nothing intellectual since….


    Night kitten.

  37. Mike Johnson Says:

    He waited all this long to announce this? He knew he was not going to take the job all along. Just wanted his name announced to stand there for a while. Perhaps a smart move financially.Watch him do the moneygrab with ESPN or any Sports network.

  38. Buccernutter Says:


    You can keep playing in fairy land but home boy didn’t get any attention in preliminary free agency and got paid little for rb standards.

    But but but nobody has said anything waaaaa.

    The terrible Jets just dumped him and the worst team in NFL history just dumped him the year before.

    But u do use the word a$$munch soo……..

  39. BucEmUp 7 Says:

    He probably doesnt want to work under Robert Kraft with the news that broke and just didnt want to say it publickly anf made up an easy excuse

  40. Alaskan Abdominal Snowman Says:

    He realized if you are a Patriot you must sell your soul for rings. That’s why he said it’s a faith decision.

  41. Getaclue Says:

    Kraft and Michael Bennett aren’t Schiano men

  42. The Fighting Schiano’s Says:


    Real men don’t use the word “silly”. Secondly, weed is legal is most of the country so keep your pie hole shut. No one cares about your opinion of other Bucs fans posts.

  43. Chris K Says:

    This makes me feel good as a Bucs fan for some odd reason. Much better than if he went on to become a great coach for the Patriots. As Bucs fans we’ve been through enough to have to witness more agony like that 😂

  44. Jamaal Stanley Says:

    Straightcash I believe the Ellington signing has to do more with what he can provide to teammates in the classroom more than what he’ll provide on the actual field of play. Same reason I feel Gabbert was signed. As for Crowell,well I’m more excited about possibly adding the Penn State RB Sanders. I like’em young and hungry at that position considering the level physicality at that position. They wanna one day earn a Big deal so the willingness to give up they’re body for the team is greater.

  45. Buc1987 Says:

    Already got that Glazer money anyways…paid to go away!

    Good move if that’s what he needs to do. Family first.

  46. Buc1987 Says:

    I agree with J.

    “He realized if you are a Patriot you must sell your soul for rings. That’s why he said it’s a faith decision.”

    Funny he didn’t realize that while he was at Penn State. Better late than never.

  48. Jamaal Stanley Says:

    Oh and St.Pete what you stated on the JPP thread👍🏾👍🏾. No one ever said it better. And you exactly right good sir. In a nutshell he’s saying “I’m bad and I know it”.

  49. BucFanInPhoenix Says:

    Instead of hearing about Greg Schiano a has been of no significance to the Bucs why aren’t we hearing about how Philly made out like a thief without a mask getting Jordan Howard from the Bears for a 6TH ROUND PICK!?!?!?!??!?! This is a player the Bucs should have jumped all over for a mere 6th round pic!

  50. Ndog Says:

    So as of today my guy for the 5th pick in the draft is Ed Oliver. I was on the fence for awhile but after todays results and marrying those up with his tape he would be the perfect compliment to Vita Vea. Just image a front 7 of JPP, Vea and Oliver on the line and David, Nassib, Buccannon and Shaq as LBs!!!!! That would be sweet!!!!

  51. GenocideD Says:

    I wonder if he had a happy ending?

  52. Ndog Says:

    I just did a mock draft on fanspeak, how great would this be? We get a speed demon on the interior d line, a starting RG, a potential starting LB, a 3rd down back, a depth edge rusher, a swing tackle, and productive small school CB with huge up side.

    5: R1P5

    39: R2P7

    70: R3P6

    107: R4P5

    145: R5P7

    208: R6P35

    215: R7P1

  53. RODNEY J ALLEN Says:

    Bucnutter thank u glad someone else said it too lol to shiano quitting hes very religious right? So maybe hes not into cheating 🤷‍♂️dutsthy r u actually sayin Crowell is a better player than Mike Evans? Ur right hes not the goat but he is definitely top 5 we in the league now. This is the dumb sh!t bucnutter was referring to u suck a$$ fans that have nothing positive about any players we have even the ones that r d@mn good like Evans. I just really dont get some of yall sooo called fans that have so much hate for the team u supposedly r a fan of. I seriously cant stand reading half the posts on here from fake af fans that literally bash ever single player on our team like there isnt any good players. If Dirk was so great n our 2 yrs of 5-11 wasnt his fault then get u a falcons Jersey stfu n go complain on their forum about their players. I’m sure yall would start complaining about Matt ryan Julio jones and Freeman right SMMFH 🤦‍♂️

  54. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Schiano stinks. This has to be a save face opportunity. Smart Patriots for keeping Greg the Dregs of Coaches away from their team. Hats off to you Pats. Just say no to Schiano!

    BB found out this guy is a loon and cut bait.

  57. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    The police admitted they had no case, after lying countless times and claiming they had video proof. Bringing up Kraft is silly at this point.

    Besides, all prostitution is considered human trafficking these days. While I don’t support and have never had to resort to paying for what I can easily get for free, Kraft did nothing many men visiting Las Vegas haven’t done.

    As far as Schiano, only a fool would turn down such a job…or a man who has a better offer from elsewhere. Don’t be surprised when Schiano suddenly takes a job soon.

  58. Buccernutter Says:

    Glad you agree Rodney. They try to say years of failure have made them negative. Bull****. We’ve all been in this boat together and I still see real fans that don’t trash the squad daily. You don’t have to be optimistic but these people spend so much time talking **** about the team they supposedly love. How terrible of a life they have.

    Not to mention they half of them don’t even understand the game. Dumbest fan base in sports. Makes me sad cuz sometimes night question if these people deserve another ring. Wish there were more like us.

  59. Buccernutter Says:

    Sometimes I question*

  60. BuccOff Says:

    With Schiano it very likely could be that real and troubling stuff will immerge soon on the ongoing civil suits of the young men that attended Penn State University, during the Jerry Sandusky years coaching there, when Schiano was still on staff, and many intial affidavits from a multitude of sources reported that Schiano had knowledge of things surrounding Sandusky and the young men, and allegedly didn’t do squat about it. It’s been out there prior.

    Those trials have been continuing for quite a while, some have remained under an NDA, some have not, but we all know how worthless NDA’s can ultimately be, in the TMZ era.

    My guess is, Schiano wanted to duck and run the public life after giving an indication by his attorney’s, before some of that involving him might hit the fan….

    Consider yourselves…scooped. You’re welcome.
