Schiano has special moment in getting Sunday's game ball



Though Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano is typically a picture of intensity - a "stone wall," LB Quincy Black joked - Black said the rookie coach had a smile on his face Sunday night, when co-chairman Bryan Glazer awarded him the game ball from his first NFL victory

“He realized that we put a lot of hard work in and it was kind of one of those deals he put a lot of hard work in too,” Black said of Schiano. “For it to come to fruition for him, is good.”

The honor could have easily gone to CB Ronde Barber, who had a sack and interception on the day they were celebrating his 200th consecutive start, but Barber said giving Schiano the ball was “well deserved.”

“Dallas (Clark) said something, said, ‘Give the coach congratulations,’” Black said. “It was a cool deal.”
