Schiano Throws Freeman Under The Bus For Missing Team Photo

On Thursday, Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano admitted that Josh Freeman missed the team photo, explaining that the quarterback overslept.

“That was dealt with by me internally,” Schiano said.

Schiano added that Freeman has been late for things. But so have other players.

“He wouldn’t be the only one who has been late for something,” Schiano said, adding that he still trusts Josh Freeman.

Regardless, it’s clear that there’s a problem.

“Any time that as a coach you’re trying to instill winning habits in your entire football team, in your organization, really. The way we cook the food, the way we practice, the way we clean the building. We want everything to be an elite level,” Schiano said. “So when you have mishaps, you have things where guys don’t do things they’re supposed to do when they’re supposed to do it, does it concern me? Sure it does.”
