“How bad is it there? It’s worse than you can imagine,” says one NFL player who spent 2012 with the Bucs. “It’s like being in Cuba.”
Former Bucs defensive end Michael Bennett says they always hated diving at their opponents legs at the end of games when the opposing team was trying to kneel the ball.
“People just really hate it when you have to dive at people’s legs,” Bennett says. “At the end of the day, we’ve got to keep going and move onto the next game and try to make a living. Some of these guys (on other teams) are our friends.”
“I think he just wants to flex his power,” Bennett says. “He has small (man’s) syndrome. I still talk to guys who are there, and trust me, there’s not much respect for him in that locker room.”
Schiano’s ego has gotten the best of him and by the end of this season, he’ll likely be out of the NFL.
