Bucs Mental Mistakes Lack of Discipline Kill Them

Let’s face it, when Jimmy Graham got high-lowed yesterday, and we all cringed. Get your checkbook ready Ahmad Black. The Buccaneers were penalized 10 times yesterday, for a total of 118 yards (by the way, Josh Freeman only threw for 125 yards). Greg Schiano clearly doesn’t have a composed team. We even saw Vincent Jackson brush off one of the coaches when he was being talked to.

The sad part? These penalties didn’t lead to many Saints successes, but the penalty yards were quietly a huge MVP for the Saints yesterday.
