Raheem Morris once set out to sell the world that his team was the best in the NFC. “Yeah, I said it,” continued the worst defensive coordinator in Bucs history.
Well, it seems Greg Schiano will make no such comments unless he reaches the Super Bowl. Per Donald Penn, the leader of the New Schiano Order went out of his way to tell his team before the Chargers game, “Don’t drink the Kool-Aid.”
Penn’s said Schiano’s words were especially directed at the offensive line after its record-setting and eye-opening performance in Oakland. “It don’t mean nothing if we came out [against San Diego] and lay an egg,” Penn told Joe of Schiano’s message.
The head coach has said many times that he doesn’t really evaluate his team’s performance as a whole during a season. Joe suspects Schiano won’t waver unless the Bucs capture the NFC crown.
“That’s one thing coach is on us about, not ever looking ahead,’ Penn said. “When you start looking ahead, you can get the slightest bit complacent. We’re not going to do that.”
