This was supposed to be a special night.

Thursday Night Football on national TV at home inside Raymond James Stadium.

Unfortunately, the only thing special about Thursday night will be how ugly the hatred gets towards the Buccaneers head coach.

The pressure has been building for a while now.

With six losses in a row to start this season, and 11 losses in their last 12 games dating back to last season, Greg Schiano has been justified already to be fired for his team’s poor performance.

As a lifelong fan and season ticket holder, I can not remember what it feels like when my team wins a meaningful game.  Hell, I don’t even remember what it feels like to leave Raymond James Stadium after the Bucs win a home game.

While Greg Schiano’s on-field performance as coach is enough to have him fired, the circus of embarrassing stories that have flowed out of One Buc Place during his regime is enough to have the Raheem Morris era laugh at him.

Whether it’s been current players, players on their way out, or former players, Schiano has seemed to find a way to agitate everyone inside the Bucs facility.

As the margins for each loss this season have felt like they have grown with each week that has passed, one has to wonder if the Bucs are more due for a win or to be completely blown out. If the latter were to occur, the Glazers MUST do the right thing and fire Greg Schiano on Friday morning.  Hell, nothing less than a win should force the Glazers hand into making the horrible nightmare of Greg Schiano come to an end.

This was supposed to be a special night.

Unfortunately, the only thing special about Thursday night will be Warren Sapp, Simeon Rice, Booger McFarland, and Derrick Brooks all on the NFL Network set describing how embarrassed they are with these current Buccaneers.

With a loss to the hated Panthers, the Bucs would fall to 0-7 on the year with one week to prepare for a road trip to face one of the best teams in the NFL in their house, the Seattle Seahawks.  The Seahawks have won their last 11 home games in one of the toughest stadiums for opposing teams in the NFL, and we all know what will happen when the Bucs go there.

A loss on Thursday night should force the Glazers to forget about everything else going on at One Buc Place and pay Greg Schiano to go away for good.

Greg Schiano might get one more week as Bucs head coach with a win against the Panthers, but a loss in either of the next two weeks should have him fired before the Bucs face the Miami Dolphins on Monday Night Football.

I don’t write as a media member or a journalist. I write as a fan and season ticket holder to the Buccaneers.  It is time for the Glazers to send a message to their own fan base that being the biggest embarrassment in the NFL will not be tolerated.

Firing Greg Schiano will not magically fix this season, but it will give hope that better days, and hopefully a better coach, are ahead.

This was supposed to be a special night.

Unfortunately, the only thing special about Thursday night is that it might be the last time we have to see Greg Schiano on the sideline as head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Now that I think about it, this might just be as special as we all hoped for.
