The sun came up today, and that means that the garbage fire that is the 2013 Tampa Bay Buccaneers got even hotter and more garbage-y. What's new today? Allow The MMQB's Andrew Brandt to tell you about "Schiano Men."
In speaking with agents of several Bucs players recently, I have sensed a common theme: There is an atmosphere of fear and distrust under the current regime in Tampa. Players have told their agents about coaches roaming through the locker room (typically the players’ sanctuary away from coaches) and staff videotaping players on the sidelines during losses to single out players laughing or horsing around. The players also speak to the influx of multiple Rutgers players from Schiano’s past and the use of the phrase “Schiano Men,” a term that clearly does not apply to Freeman.
Now we can't help but wonder what the ideal "Schiano Man" would look like. He'd probably be someone who refuses to pay more than $11 for a haircut, grumbles about how construction workers are always "just standin' around" instead of working, and is short on neck but very high on a complete inability to win football games.
