Greg Schiano not bothered by fan criticism

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers suffered yet another loss thanks to a disaster of a performance against the Carolina Panthers on Thursday Night Football, so the cries for head coach Greg Schiano to lose his job. The team is clearly not buying in to Schiano’s plan and the fans are growing tired of the team’s losing ways.

However, Schiano is not bothered one bit by the criticism that is coming from the fans.

“It doesn’t affect me,” Schiano said following the game, via Pro Football Talk. “People are certainly entitled to their opinion. Here’s the thing, my whole career – player and a coach – you get up in the morning, you work as hard and as smart as you can. It usually puts you to bed tired and you get up and you do it again and that’s the way I do it. I do it the best we can.

“Our coaches and players stick together. Sometimes it doesn’t go your way. We’ve just got to keep doing it, look for new ways to make us better and hopefully go get a win in Seattle. You can sit there and cry about it, feel sorry for yourself but that ain’t going to help anything. You just get back to work, get on this tape and get better.”

The Buccaneers will watch the tape, but they won’t be happy with what they saw.

You can also guarantee the men in charge will evaluate their current situation to see whether or not it is best to move forward with a different head coach. If that happens, it will be the one move that does affect Schiano.

    I just think ppl who were on the fence with coach , well at least I was .. You don’t like to think your HC is scheming against anyone ,but. all my ambiguity ceased once I heard it leaked that Darrelle was unhappy with the schematics , but even worse , what was done to Josh. I think he was a confident young QB when he started in 2010. Yes , the leadership was loose , but Josh led our team to 10-6 . There had it have been something amiss when we took a nose dive in 2011 to 4-12 leading to the firing of Raheem Morris ‘ I liked Coaches Defensive mind & the players brought into the club.

    But knew we would have some issues once K2 walked along with a cpl of others that didn’t like Schiano’s Way. It looked like we would start having a disciplined football team . Records speak for themselves & it is always about the tix sales , but I hung in there hoping Josh would learn Schiano’s system . I feel like there was a divide after Schianio entered , but only the insiders really knew what was happening / first bad feeling came after the kneel down & other things about accountability & taking out some good players that co
