Buccaneers players-only meeting addressed Greg Schiano's style

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers continue to seem some drama surround them, although at least this time it's relatively small.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers players-only meeting was reportedly focused on Greg Schiano's rigid coaching staff, according to Albert Breer of NFL Network. Breer claims that players "mobilized" to try to change Greg Schiano's "rigid and rugged" coaching methods. In this version of events, Dashon Goldson is the player who called the meeting. At one point, players claimed the meeting was a pep rally.

Greg Schiano told players that he would listen, but also that his way would lead to on-field results. The fact that the Bucs are now 0-2 and his ways are not leading to on-field results won't have the players very satisfied, then.

The players' complaints focused on Schiano's training camp, which they viewed as "unrelenting", per Breer. One player's quote is particularly troubling.  "He came into the team meeting, said you guys gotta trust me, we're in half-pads that day, then the next day, it's back to the same thing."

At least Darrelle Revis is positive. "I think we're fine," he told Albert Breer. "Everyone's being themselves./ We're just trying to prepare for this week. No one's acting funny or different in any way."

Overall, this is not a big surprise. Schiano is a rigid and strict coach, and that limits the players who can play for him. That is the life of a disciplinarian. If the Bucs start winning, all of this will blow over. If they can't win, things could spiral out of control quickly.
