Just looks like he isn't wearing shoulder pads to me.

Last year without pads.

To me it looks like he slimmed down a tad. I could be wrong though :P

I really enjoy that Schiano appears to be going at the Practice Drills with Military Precision...That is definitely a way to get results, and a something I wish more NFL coaches did. If you really want to reveal someone's character, mental toughness, and thought process...but them through Team-based Military drills...like those used for the US Engineers Corp. Everything has to be precise, and on time. Its very complex.

One thing that will be interested in the coming months...

Watch for Safety Devin Holland to make a splash. From what Ive seen and heard buzzing around OBP, DB Coach Ron Cooper was spending alot of time with Holland during the Safety Drills and around the facility and will be the main competition for Cody Grimm for Starting Strong Safety.

Cooper was reported to be impressed with Devin Holland when they faced off 2 years ago back during the LSU Vs McNeese State game (LSU won by alot), but Devin Holland locked down the entire right side of the field and during their scoring drives, LSU would always run the ball to the left side, away from Holland.

Should be interesting.

Dezmon Briscoe has been a no-show for the first two days of Buccaneers voluntary workouts.

We don't understand the details because we don't watch "Basketball Wives," but there is a story on the internet about Briscoe that can be easily accessed via a Google search. It appears he's having personal problems. Regardless, the absence and unnecessary notoriety is unlikely to go over well with the Buccaneers' new coaching staff. Briscoe is not a lock to make the Bucs' roster.

Barber has been getting work at safety during the Bucs' minicamp.
"It's really no different than me playing down in the box all these years," he said. "It's not much of a transition. It's just slowing my feet down from 'corner feet' to 'safety feet'.. nothing I can't handle, if need be."
It certainly sounded both from Barber and head coach Greg Schiano that the move is, without officially being made, certainly of high probablility.
The team only has four safeties currently on the roster and just one (Cody Grimm) has an NFL start to his credit.
Schiano said Barber has handled the idea with the ultimate professionalism.
"In my short time with Ronde, he is the epitome of a pro football player," Schiano said. "I like what I see out there. I don't know if that's where he'll stay or not, but I really like the way he's attacking it, and I think he can do it."


After reports emerged Tuesday that Aqib Talib was on the trading block, head coach Greg Schiano addressed the situation following afternoon practice.
While establishing that he generally does not respond to all rumors, Schiano wanted to clear things up -- saying the report (from pewterreport.com) is not true.
"All I can tell you is, there's absolutely zero thinking on our part as far as wanting to do that. I want him to be a Buc," Schiano said. "I don't know how that all got started, but no there's no truth to that."
According to the report Tampa Bay had floated Talib's availability around the league, but had no takers.
Talib has had numerous issues, both on the field and off -- he has a court date later this summer which may impact his ability to suit up.
"I understand there's been issues before I arrived. But I am really hopeful that that clears itself up because, since I've met him for the first time he's done everything I've asked," said Schiano.

The oft-injured Gerald McCoy was beaming Tuesday, his first chance to talk to the media during the Bucs' three-day minicamp.
"Put in a lot of work this offseason," McCoy said. "(My trainers) got me back right."
He said he's "getting there" as far as being fully ready to participate in football activity.
Minicamp is more of getting familiar with plays than physical contact, and so McCoy was able to run through drills along with everyone else.
He only played six games last season before suffering a torn biceps for the second time in his career.
"I'm practicing, if that's any indication of where I'm at. But I will say this, by training camp I will be 110 (per cent)," McCoy told the press Tuesday.
McCoy also commented on new head coach Greg Schiano.
"He's re-establishing order, and he's doing it immediately. Nobody's exempt," McCoy said, clearly pleased with the developments.

Briscoe has been noted to have a less-than-desirable work ethic in the past.

If he doesn't change that, he'll be out the door. He has a lot of talent, but that won't get you far. We have a couple of wide receivers on the team who could emerge as equal talents (Parker, Stroughter, Webber, Gant).

Did a little research on Mr. Briscoe tonight, here's a brief summary:

Girlfriend tweeted baby mama about meeting Dez Jr.

Baby mama responded by posting alleged 'sex'ts from Briscoe to baby mama, all of which look incredibly fake. It seems as though she was getting a majority of these texts from some other dude, and changed the name to 'Desmond'

Girlfriend laughs at these tweets, believing they're fake.

Dez just tweeted a couple minutes ago...it seems that he actually did send the texts, just to 'stay on her (baby mama) good side'...cites personal reasons for being absent to camp.

Conclusion: **** this guy, and his drama. We don't need it, and he's not nearly talented enough to justify it.

I've been a big fan of Briscoe, I think he can be a great 3rd or 4th WR. But if he's going to have this (PUBLICIZED) drama off the field, then give his spot to someone else.

Too bad the team he plays for is his "babys momma" and his g/f rather than the Bucs.

Who knows...maybe this is the different direction that Tanard Jackson was talking about. I wouldn't be shocked to see him wind up a starter sooner or later. His size/speed combo is perfect for a safety and
his instincts in coverage have been pretty good. As long as we don't use him as a gunner.

If there is anyone who can be a distraction, its Briscoe...his baby mama and his new GF, Royce Reed aka baby mama herself to NBA superstar Dwight Howard is also on that show basketball wives...that chick brings trouble where ever she goes and as we've seen, its already taken Briscoe away from a voluntary camp.....Dez if you can hear me, cut bait!

again, I know I am potentially blowing up little nothings and over-excited about this - but have you guys noticed that in many pictures of Schiano at camp he has a pen and paper in hand? Again - I might eat my words, but this little "detail" is really great for me to see as it indicates that he is constantly evaluating and keeping notes for himself. Every successful leader I have worked under has a little notebook for keeping little memos to himself or herself about things they need to accomplish and making commentary on how things work or don't work.

/coach crush...for now.

I've noticed the same and it's exciting to see. It could be his teaching style but he DOES have a long ways to go with this team. It's one thing to look at game tape and take notes and it's another to look at tendencies of a person during practice. Coach probably won't know every last detail about the team he has inherited and all of the players on it until the end of the year. But it won't surprise me if it's long before then too.

I think an 8-8 season is a reasonable goal for coach Schiano's freshman campaign.

It seems so surreal to see this guy we had never heard of til now coaching the team. It almost feels out of place but not necessarily in a bad way

Again, I may be over-reacting, but I'm not ashamed to say that I feel like I know Schiano better than I ever knew Raheem. In his college career, he actually did some noble and notable things. In his pressers, Schiano actually says things that indicate thought, knowledge, and intent. I am not excited arbitrarily, I am excited based on what my observations have been from his press conferences and the things I have read coming out of this voluntary workout. Some may want to hedge their bets, but I am full on the train.

Schiano said he was encouraged by the attitude and energy of the players in mini-camp. He said Dekoda Watson is an explosive athlete.

Schiano said he needs more time to see if Mason Foster will remain at MLB and that Quincy Black saw some time at WLB.

Looks like he runs real practices. I went to several of the open practices last year and Raheem just went around chest bumping and goofing around at different stations. Didn't look like he was observing things going on. This is a pleasant change

That is Jeff Hafley, assistant DB Coach. Not sure how great of an actual coach he is (and I suppose that is all that really matters in the NFL) but he is a great guy and a phenomonal recruiter. He was the one coach RU fans least wanted to lose. A few years in the NFL gaining coaching experience, combined with his personality and recruiting ability, this guy is going to be a Division 1 Head Coach very soon.
