Saints Look Good Heading into Tampa; Josh Freeman Doesn't

"These guys really suck.
Can't even hold the other team to less than 17?"


Here goes nothing. And I mean that. Leading up to last week’s game against the Falcons was something that just couldn’t get herer fast enough; something that you went to bed at night thinking about and woke up the next morning picking up where you left off. Playing Tampa just doesn’t do that you. You know why I think that is? I mean, they are a division rival just like Atlanta, but that organization from top to bottom hasn’t even pretended that they cared about winning since they dumped Gruden. It’s a damn shame, too, because they’ve had some pretty talented teams since that 2002 Super Bowl team. Oh well. Screw them.

Take one look at that Jets game and you’ll see why this should be something of zero consequence to the Saints. Granted, they would have won that game if it weren’t for one of their better defensive players being a total moron at exactly the most inopportune moment possible. The fact that the Jets were even in the game at that point shows you exactly how bad this Bucs team is.

Let’s talk Schiano a little here. There are conflicting reports about the captainship of Josh Freeman. Both of them are plausible if you look at his behavior, leadership and overall general demeanor over the past 4 seasons. How is it possible that into the start of his 5th season the dude is a fruit cake? Or that he has no accountability for when he leads his team into the cellar and takes all the credit when they win? Some reports are that Schiano stripped the captainship away from him and others are that the players simply didn’t vote him in as their leader. Either way, your team is about to be bent over if your quarterback isn’t a good enough football player or human being to be the leader of the offense. Good job coaching him up, Greg. Now go blitz the victory formation. Bucs fans would probably actually prefer “Ol’ Youngry” to this clown.

Other things that have been reported about the Bucs’ head coach lately. Unnamed players (pussies, put your damn name on it or don’t say anything at all) are saying that Schiano sucks as a coach and they aren’t even sure what he’s doing in the league. They question how someone who couldn’t even post an overall record above .500 got an NFL gig. They don’t like the fact that he’s a shitty coach or that he tries that “College Rah-Rah” bullshit in the NFL, where you’re dealing with professionals who make a lot more money than you do.
