Found September 24, 2012 on Football Nation:
I must admit my views are a bit slanted when it comes to being objective about the Dallas Cowboys. Are you kidding me? America's Team, Jerry World? And let us not forget the newest product to sweep the nation - "Jerry Wipes". However long my tenure at being a loyal and devout follower of said "Holier Than Thou" football team; I can say the glow has started to dim just a little.It wasn't last week's whooping at Seattle or even last year's fiasco with Arizona or Philly, or even the heart breaker with the Giants. No sir, this rust has been forming for about 10-15 years, pretty much after Barry Switzer took the team to the promised land for one last hurrah.However, I'm not going to lambaste the team for poor performances over the last decade, I am simply going to list the "Top Five Takeaways" from the game versus Tampa.Oh yeah, and I could go with the obvious things like 23+ combined penalties, poor coaching decisions and other rudimenta...

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.
