Bucs-Eagles gameday: Your morning reading



Good morning -- still several hours until the Bucs and Eagles kick off, but there's lots to read before you head to Raymond James Stadium. Turns out MRSA isn't the only recurrence the Bucs are dealing with -- the Josh Freeman/Greg Schiano discord is back, with overnight news from USA Today that the NFLPA believes Schiano is the source of the leaked private information about his being in the league's drug program for prescribed ADHD medication.

The Times' Rick Stroud writes about the transition Schiano and the Eagles' Chip Kelly are making from college football to the NFL, and Stroud also writes about the Bucs' need for better downfield passing to balance out the offense.

Our weekly "Kickin' Back" Q&A is with speedy Bucs running back Jeff Demps, talking about Tim Tebow, his track-star background and his ... love for George Lopez. Don't forget our Bucs-Eagles game analysis and our NFL picks for Week 6. We'll have updates throughout the day on Twitter at @gregauman.
