Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano told the media today that defensive end Adrian Clayborn is done for the season with torn knee ligaments in his right knee. “Unfortunately, it’s not a good one. Adrian is going to have to have surgery, so he’s done for the season,” Schiano said during his Monday news conference, per the Tampa Bay Times. “You know, it’ll probably be a couple weeks before it happens that he has it. Certainly, it’s unfortunate for him and the team. “It’s a knee. I don’t know exactly what it is. It’s one of those three-letters deals. It may be more than one. I got to see. They’re not sure yet.”

Greg Schiano could be fired this season

The Buccaneers play in a very difficult division, and they're still busy picking up the pieces from the short-lived Raheem Morris era. The man the team chose to re-build with is Greg Schiano, but he shouldn't get too comfortable. He could be gone at the end of the year. As a general rule, I don't like to let my personal biases into my writing, especially on a league...

NFL Rumors: Should NFL Network Fire Warren Sapp For Comments About Brandon Marshall?

But after...

It’s up to coach (Greg...

Bucs offense quite offensive in loss to Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers by a score of 16-10. However, the score could have been one less touchdown for the Bucs as their offense could not get anything going. Tampa Bay started off quick when Aqib Talib stepped in front of Cowboys’ wide receiver Miles Austin to intercept the pass from Tony Romo. Josh Freeman would go on to throw a one yard touchdown pass...

Warren Sapp insults Brandon Marshall’s intelligence, ends up looking like the idiot himself

In the latest example of his inability to think before he speaks, Warren Sapp has called Brandon Marshall a retard in a very public forum.

Video: More Debacles for NFL Replacement Refs

It seems to be obvious to almost every NFL player, coach and fan, who’s name isn’t Roger Goodell, that the replacement reps aren’t up to par with the currently locked out officials.
