Bucs-Seahawks: Poll, numbers, what they're saying

The poll

What should the Bucs do with coach Greg Schiano?

Fire him immediately: 58 percent

Fire him at the end of the season: 21 percent

Fire him after today's game: 10 percent

Hang on to him: 11 percent

Total: 1,722 votes

By the numbers

4-7 Bucs' record against the Seahawks; although Tampa Bay has won the past three meetings

7 Times Seattle's Russell Wilson was sacked in last week's 14-9 victory at St. Louis

27 Sacks allowed by Seattle, tied for seventh most in the NFL

181 Passes attempted by the Bucs' Mike Glennon, the most in the first four games of a career in NFL history

What they're saying

Do you think Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano could get fired at the half? I mean this has all the potential to be beyond ugly. A grumpy team that wants its coach out and searching for its first win going all the way to Seattle to face the toughest road environment against the Seahawks. Rookie quarterback Mike Glennon in that environment? It'll be a looonngg flight back to Tampa Bay. And if this gets as lopsided as it looks like it could, you have to wonder if the Schiano experiment comes to a crashing halt here and now.

Jason La Canfora CBS Sports

What went wrong for the Bucs is the quarterback position. Josh Freeman was never Greg Schiano's guy. He proved it during the offseason. Freeman performed lousy and was finally benched after three weeks. But that forced the Bucs to play Mike Glennon before he is ready. Glennon isn't the reason the Bucs are losing, but he has a lot to do with not winning.

The picks

Pete Carroll and Greg Schiano are both former college head coaches who had previous NFL experience before they got their current gig. But that's about the extent of what they have in common at the moment. Same kind of goes for the 1976 expansion Seahawks and Bucs. They've gone their separate ways over the years but never more so than in this season's standings. They're about as far away from one another in the NFL hierarchy as they are on the map. Seahawks, 37-14.

Don Banks Sports Illustrated

The Bucs had a long rest to stew over their seventh loss. Now they get a long trip to face a Seattle team that is brutal to opponents at home. Mike Glennon against that Seattle secondary is a huge mismatch. And he doesn't have Mike Williams. Blowout. Seahawks, 30-10.

Pete Prisco CBS Sports

Two teams that entered the NFL together in 1976 couldn't be more different in 2013. While the Bucs still have the bragging rights that come from winning a Super Bowl, the Seahawks could be on course to match that achievement this year. Seahawks, 31-10.

  1. Rays at Orioles, 1:35 p.m. Sunday, Baltimore

    The Heater

    Today: at Orioles

    1:35, Camden Yards, Baltimore

    TV/radio: Fox Sports Sun, 1250-AM, 760-AM (Spanish)

  2. Rays Tales: Who's the team MVP? It's a vexing proposition

    The Heater

    Given that the Rays' season is — barring a much bigger story — going to end next Sunday, this is the time to reflect on what they did over the past six months — honor the good, acknowledge the bad and note some of the more interesting.

    Typically, that starts with the MVP.

    Corey Dickerson, left, and Steven Souza Jr. typify the conundrum: some good, some not so good.
  3. Lightning journal: Ryan Callahan feels good after first game action since January


    TAMPA — As veteran RW Ryan Callahan was riding a stationary bike before Friday's exhibition game, he felt nervous. There was anxiety.

    Tampa Bay Lightning right wing Ryan Callahan (24) pursues Nashville Predators center Colton Sissons (10) during the first period of Friday (9/22/17) preseason game between the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Nashville Predators at Amalie Arena in Tampa.
  4. FSU players rally around freshman QB James Blackman


    TALLAHASSEE — For the first few minutes Saturday, Florida State's James Blackman looked like a true freshman making his first start at quarterback for a big-time program.

    Florida State Seminoles quarterback James Blackman (1) gets sacked during the first quarter of the Florida State Seminoles game against the North Carolina State Wolfpack on September 23, 2017, at Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee, Fla.  Final score, North Carolina State Wolfpack 27, Florida State Seminoles 21.
  5. No. 12 FSU, defense struggle in 27-21 loss to N.C. State


    TALLAHASSEE — It's easy to blame No. 12 Florida State's 27-21 loss to North Carolina State on the injury to starting quarterback Deondre Francois or the three-week layoff because of Hurricane Irma.

    It would also be wrong.

    Florida State Seminoles wide receiver Nyqwan Murray (8) carries during the first quarter of the Florida State Seminoles game against the North Carolina State Wolfpack on September 23, 2017, at Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee, Fla.  At the half, North Carolina State Wolfpack 17, Florida State Seminoles 10.
