Posted November 28, 2012 on AP on Fox
Greg Schiano didn't have to follow the NFL closely over the past decade-plus to keep up with the exploits of Peyton Manning. Tampa Bay's first-year head coach was an assistant with the Chicago Bears when Manning began his pro career in 1998, then spent two years as an assistant at the University of Miami and the next 11 transforming one of college football's worst programs into a Big East contender at Rutgers. Still, Manning's accomplishments with the Indianapolis Colts and now the Denver Broncos are virtually impossible to overlook. The four-time league MVP faces the Buccaneers' porous pass defense this week, and Schiano is doing everything he can to make sure his young, inexperienced secondary is prepared for the challenge.
