Between the incessant losing, the MRSA outbreak and subsequent fallout, the ham-fisted scapegoating of quarterback Josh Freeman and the ongoing attempts to torpedo victory formations, no NFL coach's seat is hotter than Schiano's.
"How bad is it there? It's worse than you can imagine," one NFL player who spent 2012 with the Bucs recently told Silver. "It's like being in Cuba."
"I think he just wants to flex his power," Bennett told Silver. "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."
The disconnect between Schiano and the locker room perhaps is best illustrated by his ridiculous stance on the victory formation, which he claims his players support fully.
Arizona Cardinals kicker Jay Feely exposed that notion as fraudulent when he tweeted earlier in the month that the Buccaneers defensive line was apologizing on the field for the controversial maneuver.
"He's trying to be Belichick," Bennett explained. "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."
Schiano's militaristic approach already has alienated his biggest star. It won't be long before the Glazer family realizes that other players have tuned out to the degree that frustrated fans already have.
