07:20 AM ET 10.14 | There are days, even Sundays, when it can be one of the friendliest places in the NFL. There, on either side of the southwest tunnel at Raymond James Stadium, the fans linger and call out the names of their favorite Bucs players as they leave the field. They plead for wristbands. In the good times, they shout their support. But not on this Sunday. On this Sunday, the noise was loud and belligerent, and it rained down misery as the Bucs ran beneath. This was the sound of unhappiness, of leather-lunged and gravel-voiced fans unleashing their frustrations. This is what 0-5 and going nowhere sounds like. When it was Greg Schiano's turn to run through the tunnel, the volume rose, and the insults intensified. Clearly, they blame Schiano for this mess, and they rode him hard as he flashed through the tunnel.

"leather-lunged and gravel-voiced fans unleashing their frustrations". And those were the women.

Schiano doing his Black Bolt impression

Wouldn't it be cool if that giant pirate ship had a plank for these kinds of occasions and when the coach gets fired, they tie him up and make him walk the plank?

It's an even bet that Schiano doesn't make it past week 10.

Somehow in due time, the fans seem to always get it right!

0-5 and nowhere to go but down. Great job, tough guy.

Maybe Schiano is taking the rap for Reevis? Is it just coincidence that when with the Jets last year they are a mess and now he goes to Tampa Bay and they are? Is there a Voodoo doll in N.O. of the guy? Has anybody researched this possibility?

It's too bad they've already had their bye week. That could have made a transition easier, not that it would have made a huge difference.

The only way to know for sure is to send him to the next town and see what happens.

Revis is a man to man cover guy. He is being wasted in zone coverage. This experiment was doomed from day one, with the coach. Time to spend some money on a respected coach to come in and get the most out of the players on the roster.

Well - don't send him here!

ANyone have a link to Schiano's gaffes, mis-deeds, specifics on what and why things are so wrong in Tampa? I'm aware of the Freeman issue, possible links, but what is Schiano like and why hated; if in fact hated? Link(s) please
