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.

    OAKLAND, Calif. — Before the 7-2 loss to the A's and Steven Souza Jr.'s hip injury, or at least scare, Wednesday started with good vibes in the Rays' clubhouse.

    Jake Faria wasn't going straight to Cooperstown at 500-0, so a day like Wednesday was going to happen, when he made too many mistakes. The challenge now is how he responds. Incidental casualty: His first loss in nine starts since getting engaged.
