The Bay Cave:
Buccaneers’ head coach Greg Schiano had an early morning interview on ESPN Radio’s Mike Golic and Mike Greenberg. Mike & Mike obviously still had the the kneel down play fresh in their minds so they decided to ask coach about it.
“We had an opportunity to win the game. To New York’s credit they found a way to do it,” Greg Schiano said after Greenberg asked about the matchup and the final play of the game. “The last play has gotten a lot of attention. It’s just something we do.” Head coach Greg Schiano has said the play is in the playbook and said it again this morning.
Schiano would go on to add, “It’s sad that it had to end that way and get all the attention. We ended up on the wrong end of it but it was a great football game.”
During yesterday’s post-practice press conference, Greg Schiano was not asked about the kneel down play. It was business as usual. Here’s hoping the national media gets it out of their systems today.

Last week, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers had to insert Demar Dotson into the starting lineup at right tackle in place of the Jeremy Trueblood, who was nursing an ankle injury.
Either Dotson played extremely well in the eyes of his coaches or Trueblood is still too injuried to play, because the Bucs announced to today on their new blog that the change at right tackle appears to be...
New York Giants Hakeem Nicks was selected the NFC player of the week after his dominating performance against the Buccaneers with 10 catches for a career-high 199 yards and one touchdown.Nicks’ 199 receiving yards were the highest for the Giants since Plaxico Burress had 204 yards against the Rams on Oct. 2, 2005. Nicks’ total was the sixth-highest in franchise history. All the...
Coaches always tell their backups to be ready. A play or an injury often separates them from being a starter or - at the least - a contributor.
With the New York Giants, that happened to running back Andre Brown, wide receiver Ramses Barden and rookie cornerback Jayron Hosley over the past five days, and boy did they take advantage.
Brown, who has been cut seven times by five different...
CAPTAIN OF THE SHIP
Bucs coach Greg Schiano apparently has done little to improve his already negative reputation around the NFL.
Andre Brown and Ramses Barden wouldn't start for the Giants with a healthy roster, but both played big Thursday.
No Hakeem Nicks? No Ahmad Bradshaw? No problem. NFL teams often use the phrase “next man up” when starters go down with injuries, and the Giants exemplified the importance of depth by adhering to it on Thursday night. Their offense looked as good as it has all year, as Eli Manning had his way with the Carolina secondary and reserves Andre Brown and Ramses Barden enjoyed career...
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were in the news all week after rookie head coach Greg Schiano called for an all out defensive line push against the New York Giants lining up in a kneel down formation with five seconds remaining in the game last Sunday. However, lost in that noise has been the turnaround the Buccaneers have seen in just two games under Schiano. Yes, there is still much...
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Picking up where they left off in their last game, the New York Giants steamrolled the Carolina Panthers, in part by unleashing a new weapon. The success nearly tired out the Giants. Andre Brown ran for a career-best 113 yards and scored two touchdowns as the Giants cruised to a 36-7 victory Thursday night at Bank of America Stadium. The Giants, who got five...
HeroesEli Manning came into this game and immediately took control. He was 8-9 on the first drive, finishing with a touchdown to tight end Martellus Bennett.Eli also made due with a patchwork receiving corps and backfield, as wide receivers Hakeem Nicks, Domenik Hixon, and also starting running back Ahmad Bradshaw were all out with injury.Their replacements came in and played well...
What a game it was for the New York Giants as an entire unit. Everything was working for them, their offense put up 36 points, their defense forced 3 Cam Newton interceptions and even their special teams got into the action with 2 forced fumbles. While the team performed well as a whole, it was 2 players who put in serious work in fantasy this week.
I will start with the player...
