(AUDIO) Scott Reynolds from Pewter Report: There’s a Disconnect Between Schiano and the Players
Every Monday Scott Reynolds from Pewter Report joins Booger and Rich to take you inside One Buc for the latest on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Dashon Goldson is listed as day-to-day and Reynolds said that he doesn’t have a great chance to play because of the short week. Doug Martin reportedly has a torn labrum but Reynolds said the Bucs have not confirmed that. If that is true, Reynolds said his season is likely over.
Vincent Jackson had a couple drops on Sunday and Reynolds said that people aren’t focusing on that as much as they are the offensive penalties. Reynolds said that Schiano’s message is not taking hold. He said that the players are playing with each other and not necessarily for Schiano. Reynolds said fans shouldn’t be fooled, there’s a disconnect between Schiano and the players.
Reynolds said that if Schiano starts benching veterans and captains because of penalties and drops, there would be a mutiny. Reynolds said to him there are signs, like penalties, that shows that the team doesn’t want Schiano as their head coach. Reynolds said players won’t admit this because they’re afraid to lose their jobs.
Josh Freeman will start in Minnesota tonight and Reynolds said that there are players in the locker room that are rooting for Freeman and hope that he succeeds up north with the Vikings.
