Schiano gets Coach of the Week honors from SI's Peter King in MMQB



Sports Illustrated senior writer Peter King named Bucs coach Greg Schiano as his coach of the week during his Monday Morning Quarterback column.

The Bucs beat the Carolina Panthers 16-10 Sunday at Raymond James Stadium.

Here's what King wrote:

"Greg Schiano, head coach, Tampa Bay. The Bucs were last in the NFL in points allowed last year, and last against the run. In two games against the Panthers last year, they gave up 86 points. But they've bought into Schiano early, and held Carolina to 10 yards rushing and 10 points at the Pirate Ship. One game's too early to say the rah-rah stuff is going to work in the NFL, but discipline is discipline, and organization is organization. And Kellen Winslow and Brian Price, casualties under Schiano, haven't landed anywhere, have they?''
