After playing with Peyton Manning for so many years, Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano says that tight end Dallas Clark is frustrated with the lack of action he’s been getting this season.
“I know he’s frustrated,’ Schiano said.. “Heck, he’s been such a productive player for so long. But you wouldn’t be able to tell it by the way he’s acting on the sideline, and in the practice and in the meeting rooms. Certainly, I’m hoping we can get him the ball and he can feel personal satisfaction as well as team satisfaction. But he knows how much he means to this team and how he’s playing a big, big part. It’ll happen. It always does. It goes in cycles.”
Schiano says he wants to get Clark more involved.
“I want to get Dallas [Clark] more involved, myself. But you know what, when things are there you take them,” Schiano said on WDAE-AM Monday, via Joe Bucs Fan. “And I think what’s going to happen here soon, there’s going to be a lot more over-the-top coverage, which is what’s natural to happen when guys are making plays down the field. That opens up the middle of the defense. And hopefully Dallas and Luke and all the guys can have a bigger impact in the pass game.”

Tampa Bay punter Michael Koenen gets punt blocked and then gets intercepted (Video)
