Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle Warren Sapp is about a month away from joining the team's Ring of Honor. But that hasn't stopped the boisterous individual from proceeding to take aim at current head coach Greg Schiano. Sapp made the following remarks during a podcast on NFL.com: “If I’m down in Tampa, I’m questioning this whole thing because it’s a mafia style,” Sapp said, via JoeBucsFan.com. “I know [Mike] Glennon is not the quarterback that Josh Freeman is. There’s no question about it. The film tells me this. Practice tells me this. Even my quarterback demeanor tells me this.  ‘If you wouldn’t let [Josh Freeman] throw the ball at the end of the game, why is Glennon throwing the ball at the end of the game? Why is [Darrelle] Revis standing eight yards off [Larry] Fitzgerald running a slant route and nobody’s there? Touchdown! Are you kidding me? Let’s lock up our No. 1 corner who we’re paying $16 million and then we rotate the coverage. There has to be a plan. Because when you’re my way or the highway, you must win now. Because guys don’t believe in your way when you’re losing. And you lose the way they lost the first two weeks, you gave away those football games. And whenever you’ve giving away football games, your style needs to change.” Sapp's opinion is definitely worth listening to considering he played a longtime in Tampa Bay and won a Super Bowl there. But his comments are certain to stir up the pot even more in a situation that is already escalating. Don't expect Sapp and Schiano to exchange Christmas cards this year. Via Pro Football Talk
