Where to start?

Tampa Bay is a mess. Head coach Greg Schiano has no control over his team and has clearly not trained his players to respect the rules of the game. Multiple personal foul issues have plagued the team, including a suspension for safety Dashon Goldson.

It’s unfortunate because Tampa Bay has an elite defense when all things are clicking. Schiano is leaving the door open for a change at quarterback, which sounds about right with Josh Freeman in his contract year.

After losses to the New York Jets and New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay could easily find itself at the bottom of these rankings in the coming weeks.
