Pro Football Talk- The Buccaneers got on the scoreboard on Monday night with a trick play pass to left tackle Donald Penn. But a highlight reel displayed on the scoreboard nearly caused the Bucs to call the play off. Just before the Penn touchdown, there was a long delay because Buccaneers running back Mike James suffered an ankle injury and was getting medical attention. During that delay, the Buccaneers stadium staff decided to honor Penn for starting 100 consecutive games by playing a highlight reel on the Jumbotron. One problem: That highlight reel included video of a previous Penn touchdown on the same tackle eligible trick play that the Buccaneers were planning to run.

Bucs coach Greg Schiano said today that he was stunned to look up and see the Jumbotron showing the exact trick play that the Bucs were about to run, right there for all of the Dolphins’ players and coaches to see.

“We’d already called the play when Mike goes down,’’ Schiano said, via the Tampa Tribune. “During that stoppage, I knew we were going to recognize Donald. . . . I was great with that, but then [quarterbacks coach] John McNulty says, ‘They’re playing it on the board.’”

Schiano said the coaches began debating whether they could still run the play, or whether the Jumbotron had just given it away to the Dolphins. In the end, they decided to go with it.

Yeah this is how bad the Bucs are. They were literally shitting their pants on the sideline while the dickhead running the jumbo tron was airing their entire playbook for the whole stadium and world to see. At least that’s how they were acting. But in reality there was a video playing that only half the fans and no one else were paying attention to. If you’re a good team you run your play and tell them to stop it. I watched the Saints run the same goddamn running play 10 times in a row Sunday night against the Cowboys and they couldn’t do ANYTHING about it. You could hear Brees under center yelling “Same play!”
Meanwhile Schiano and his goons are throwing hissy fits and acting like Nick Cage is after their shit.
