Ex-Bucs Player Talks About Playing for Schiano

One Tampa Bay Buccaneers player told NFL Media columnist Michael Silver earlier this month that coach Greg Schiano “absolutely” risked losing the locker room if the team didn’t start winning.

“How bad is it there? It’s worse than you can imagine,” one NFL player who spent 2012 with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers recently told Silver. “It’s like being in Cuba.”

Between the incessant losing, the MRSA outbreak and subsequent fallout, the ham-fisted scapegoating of quarterback Josh Freeman and the ongoing attempts to torpedo victory formations, no NFL coach’s seat is hotter than Schiano’s.

After cultivating a persona as an autocratic bully in his first year with the Buccaneers, Schiano’s reputation has taken an even bigger hit through seven weeks of the 2013 season.
