Found September 18, 2012 on The Football Fan Spot:
Last week: 17 (-1) Record: 1-1 The Buccaneers have the league’s worst 2.2 yards per differential, allowing 7.2 yards per play and gaining 5.0 yards per play. So how are they 1-1 with a close loss to the Giants? Well, having the 2nd best turnover differential in the NFC, +3, has something to do with it, as do 124 yards and a touchdown on 5 interception returns. Another part of it is just that opponents have passed 84 times, to 38 runs against them and passes tend to average more per attempt, though it’s less consistent yardage than run plays. The Buccaneers have run 58 times to 52 passes. Typically, it’s very tough to continue to win on a regular basis if you lose the yardage battle, but it’s only 2 games so I’m not putting too much stock into yards per play yet and a lot of it does can be explained by play selection. Next up for the Buccaneers is a game in Dallas that will give us some insight on what to expect from this team going forward. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Studs WR Vincent Jack...

Outrage over Greg Schiano, Buccaneers’ actions on kneel down is ridiculous
