If there could be a motto for Greg Schiano’s tenure so far as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Head Coach it would be this: 100 percent effort 100 percent of the time.

Justin Pawlowski was joined today on The Commish by Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune to talk about the Bucs status at this point in the offseason.

“This team is going to be as in shape as any. They want to use this heat to their advantage,” Justin said.

“We’ve heard that before from previous coaches, Cummings said. “I’m not sure we’ve seen it addressed this early in an offseason program.”

The Florida heat has a tendency to take its toll on athletes, and Schiano is doing his due diligence trying to get this team acclimated to that heat.

“It’s clear that it’s not just another example of discipline, but he’s got a method behind his madness making sure these guys are getting into top shape,” Cummings said.

There are a lot of players on this roster that have something to prove. It is apparent that before proving play on the field, players must first pass the test of conditioning by training in this brutal heat.

Is this going to be the most in-shape team in Buccaneers history? Let’s not jump the gun just yet, but as Justin said, it’ll be hard to find a team in better shape than the Bucs this season.
