Buccaneers have been their own worst enemies

The Buccaneers hired Greg Schiano in January 2012 to instill much-needed discipline into a team that lost its final 10 games of 2011.

Schiano instituted a lot of rules: no looking fatigued on the practice field; no text messaging at the team facility; warm-up drills must be done in perfectly straight lines; quarterbacks must wear a brace on their front knee; the thermostat must be set at a certain temperature to keep the players alert; sprint drills don’t begin until all players have their “toes on the line.”
