Bucs head coach Greg Schiano joined Steve Duemig on Tuesday to talk about the current state of the Bucs.  Even though the team is 3-9, Schiano believes there are brighter days ahead.

"I think it's pointing up Steve, I feel strongly that way," Schiano replied when asked by the Big Dog if the tip of the plane is pointing to the sky or to the ground.

Schiano points to numerous injuries and younger players being forced to play bigger roles as to reasons for the team's struggling play.  Linebacker Jonathan Casillas was the latest casualty as he went down with a knee injury during Sunday's loss at Carolina.  Casillas is likely done for the season.  If he goes on injured reserved, he would be the 14th Bucs player on IR.  Cornerback Darrelle Revis also went down with a chest injury just one week after sraining his groin. 

Schiano also took responsibility for Sunday's 27-6 loss at Carolina. 

"I didn't feel like I had a great game Sunday as a head coach," Schiano told the Big Dog. 

With four games left, Schiano is hoping for a strong finish in order to save his job.  The Bucs host the Bills on Sunday.  Our coverage begins at 9am with the Floor & Decor Countdown to Kickoff.
