10:05 AM ET 08.19 | Faith was not fragile at One Buc Place a day after Tampa Bay's 30-7 preseason loss to the Tennessee Titans. If the bonds of trust were frayed a bit among Bucs fans following the Raymond James Stadium debut of coach Greg Schiano, they were still strong within the organization Saturday. "...Not what we wanted, but overall, just a lot of mistakes. And we didn't play physically enough on either side." The Bucs had 81 total yards on offense while allowing 341, and trailed in first downs 20-6. The lack of execution on both sides of the ball might be partly because of fatigue, Schiano said.

Gonna take some time getting them back to being competitive, but I think Schiano can do it. Freeman is a great QB, and he has some weapons on that offense.

Gonna take Lot of Work, they look unsure of themselves so far!

The Bucs will be, in my opinion, one of the surprise teams in the NFL this season. They'll have the benefit of an easier schedule and an influx of talent...10 wins.

Just like two years ago...

That is all true. but Schiano is the great unknown. An odd choice. His only experience coaching in the NFL was one year as the DB coach in Chicago and one year before that as an assistant DB coach there.

This team is young and very undisciplined... its going to take a little time to pount all the Rahem Morris lazyness out of them. I think Shiano has them pointed in the right direction and I'm willing to give him some time.

Let's Get Physical, Physical Call Olivia Newton John, she'll get them going!!

Has anyone asked him if he's in favor of his team's execution?

I think he meant because the defense was out on the field so long, but I agree, not very good, it's not like they stayed int he whole game.
