07:18 AM ET 07.01 | Only two seasons ago, Da'Quan Bowers led the nation in sacks, and there are some in Tampa hoping his NFL breakout season is coming. As a rookie, he was limited while the Bucs waited for his knee, injured while at Clemson, to gain strength. Last season it was the Achilles torn in May. If Bowers can stay out of the trainer's room, he can make an impact with his natural pass rush skills. He has added significant upper-body strength while getting into better shape. The problem is Bowers has never been counted on as an every-down player. ... "He has not played any consistent amount," coach Greg Schiano said. "So if he wants to become anything more than just a situational pass rusher, he's got to grind through it. He's got to go through the pain of being an every-down player."

Ok. So the guy was tore his achilles and your giving him the business?? Calm down Schiano. Your not far from being a rookie yourself. And with that meltdown from your team you should be on notice too.

Si what did Schiano expect the guy to do, play one one leg?

So just put him in at the end of the game when the other team is kneeling down to run the clock out. He should get some sacks then.

Josh Freeman is on notice, Bowers is on notice, all you @#$@# are on notice!

Try a little decaf, Greg. You aren't coaching the Steel Curtain down there in Tampa and nobody is really that scared of you.

Strange. Schiano never worked with Shanny, yet somehow it seems he's learned from him the secret to destroying young players. Think he woulda told Theismann to walk it off?

Mu God, mmph ugh aaah!!!

Sorry. I saw Isabeli Fontana over there and forgot how to speak English for just a moment.

OK coach, instead of talking about it, go to his house, call him outside face to face throw some hands with him and then YOU can show him how you go through the pain of being an every down coach in a body cast taking painkillers for the next six months.

Doesn't he have a kneel-down play to blow up?
