(AUDIO) Scott Reynolds from Pewter Report: Schiano Has Done a Good Job of Getting the Bucs Ready for the Saints

Scott Reynolds 9-13

Scott Reynolds from Pewter Report joins Booger and Rich every Monday and Friday to bring you all the latest from One Buc. Today Reynolds addressed the recent rumors regarding Josh Freeman’s no shows to events and his relationship with head coach Greg Schiano.

Reynolds said despite the criticism on Schiano, he’s done a great job or preparing the Bucs for their first home game against the New Orleans Saints this weekend. Reynolds said that winning is the most important thing right now and tends to be a cure all. Starting the season 0-2 almost certainly ends their chances of making the playoffs.

Reynolds said he’s heard negative chatter going back to last season from the players regarding Greg Schiano. Reynolds says Schiano’s coaching style can tend to wear on a team over time and both veterans and rookies are amongst those who have been unhappy.

Reynolds said that Carl Nicks hasn’t been ruled out of Sunday’s game but the concern from Schiano and the coaching staff is conditioning because Nicks was unable to practice in any form because of his MRSA infection.

With the Saints coming to town, Reynolds said that this Sunday the Bucs will have a fullback to block for Doug Martin and the Bucs hope to establish a run game behind Eric Lorig. This should allow for a double TE set and more of a chance to get Doug Martin going.
