    Is it me or does this sort of remind you (just a little) of the Saban tenure ? Now that Freeman has been released, I wonder where he will go? Since teams are not on the hook for the high salary and picks, I think there will be teams interested, assuming they haven't been scared away by the supposed attitude and "leaked" step 1 status. I'd be interested in bringing him in with the phins if I didn't think it would create an unnecessary stink in the press and locker room. That's why I'm pretty sure we won't touch him. Jax or Minn would be stupid not to look at him, but I think they are maybe looking towards the draft already.

    The Buccaneers got guard Carl Nicks back on the field a couple of weeks ago after a bout with a MRSA infection in his foot, but it looks like Nicks hasnít made it all the way out of the woods yet.

    Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reports that cultures taken from Nicksí foot recently have come back with indications of MRSA. Bucs General Manager Mark Dominik told Garafolo that the infectious disease specialist working with Nicks believes that it is a recurrence of the initial infection as opposed to a new strain of the bug finding its way into Nicksí foot.

    Thereís no word on what that might mean for Nicksí availability, but itís clearly not good news for a player who missed the first two weeks of the season while battling the infection the first time. Nicks also missed nine games last year, so his move to Tampa has featured a lot more visits to doctors offices than the touchdown springing blocks that the team had in mind.

    And itís also not good news for the Bucs who are already 0-4 and facing an NFLPA grievance filed by kicker Lawrence Tynes regarding their handling of Tynesí MRSA infection in a season thatís well on its way to being a total nightmare.

    Not sure how much of this one is on Tampa, but this is pretty much the last thing they needed. As if that team doesnt have enough distractions.

    A third Tampa Bay Buccaneers player has been diagnosed with an MRSA infection, the team said Friday.

    The team did not reveal the player's identity.

    Changed my mind, this is on Tampa.

    What a disaster of a team.

    edit:

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie cornerback Johnthan Banks became the third member of the team diagnosed with a methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Friday, according to two sources informed of the situation.

    The NFLPA vowed to uncover who leaked medical information about former Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman. It is now accusing one person of being the informer.

    Bucs coach Greg Schiano.

    According to Tom Pelissero of USA TODAY Sports, the NFLPA wants the league to participate in a joint investigation that would allow union officials to question Schiano, who has denied any wrongdoing, about leaking information concerning Freeman’s participation in the NFL’s substance abuse program

    Total meltdown.
    I'm here to tell the truth about top secret Air Force project BAR STOOL. Gamma ray radiation from the particle accelerator under Joe Robbie Stadium is real! Get out while you can! This bad football team is just a front for something far more sinister!

    Not really. Saban was made fun of and disliked a lot by the press because he tried to control them like you can in college. The only issue Saban had while coach was going with Culpepper. And I don't mean choosing him over Brees, I think people forget how much of a problem child he ended up being for the organization that season with skipping meetings and not going to rehab for his knee after he struggled (Cam Cameron made situations a lot worse the next offseason).

    Anyways, despite throwing 2 TDs, Mike Glennon showed why he's not going to be a good NFL QB. He even gets a hint that pressure is coming he panics on the throw

    I'm not a fan of Glennon's, but he was a lot better than he thought I would be yesterday. He was decisive with the football and threw tight passes that were much more accurate than Freeman's ever were. He definitely made a mistake on the interception, but it wasn't that much different than Tannehill's first interception versus the Saints.

    And yes, you'll notice I used the word men. That's because I've spoken to enough people who've played for Schiano during his two NFL seasons to conclude that he treats his players like children, which is a major reason he has lost his locker room.

    "How bad is it there? It's worse than you can imagine," says one NFL player who spent 2012 with the Bucs. "It's like being in Cuba."

    Several current Bucs players describe a similarly bleak environment in which the all-powerful, unyielding Schiano spews tone-deaf platitudes while demonstrating the personal charm of "Homeland" character Nicholas Brody....

    Last year, Schiano alienated many of his players and staff members with tantrums like the one I described on "NFL GameDay Morning" last month. According to a current Bucs player -- in an account corroborated by another witness -- Schiano became enraged during a practice late in the 2012 season when special teams coach Bob Ligashesky walked onto the wrong area of the practice field during a drill.

    Instead of merely telling Ligashesky to watch where he walked, Schiano launched into a loud tirade and threatened to fire him if he repeated the mistake.
    When Ligashesky was let go following the season, it was hard not to draw a connection between the tantrum and that decision.

    "I think he just wants to flex his power," Bennett says. "He has small (man's) syndrome. I still talk to guys who are there, and trust me, there's not much respect for him in that locker room."

    Schiano lost some respect during the summer of 2012 when, during joint workouts with the New England Patriots, he demonstrated a reverence for his friend and apparent idol, Pats coach Bill Belichick, that Bucs players found alarming.

    "He gathered us before we practiced and told us that if Belichick said something to us on the field, we should listen," one current Bucs player recalls. "He said, 'Treat their coaches like they're your coaches.' We were like, 'Huh?' When we practiced together, whatever Belichick wanted, he did. It was hilarious -- here (Schiano) is, acting like Mr. Tough Guy all the time, and when Belichick wanted something, he was like, 'Yes, Bill.' "

    Bennett, who laughs at the recollection, put it this way: "He's trying to be Belichick. Yeah, some people think Belichick's an (expletive), but he's a legend. When this guy acts that way, it's a whole different deal."

    Now that Bennett has relocated to the Pacific Northwest, where Pete Carroll runs an unfailingly upbeat operation, the defensive end truly appreciates the difference in leadership styles.

    "It's lovely here," Bennett says. "I can't even explain to people how it is here, compared to Tampa. They wouldn't believe me."

    Yup, gonna have to watch the game tonight. It might be Schiano's last.
