Clueless Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano says Darrelle Revis is ‘day to day’

Revis will play Sunday at the Carolina Panthers.

Clueless Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano says standout cornerback Darrelle Revis is “day to day” with a minor groin strain.

The 28-year-old Revis, who was traded from the New York Jets to Tampa Bay for the 13th overall pick in last April’s draft, had an MRI on Monday.

“He’ll be day to day, so that should tell you it’s not real bad,” said Schiano, 47, who thinks he’s tougher than Balls Mahoney. “Will he play Sunday? I don’t know. We’ve got to figure that out.”

Tampa Bay (3-8) has won three consecutive games since Schiano finally began using Revis in man, rather than zone, coverage a few weeks ago.

A three-time All-Pro and four-time Pro Bowler, Revis provides blanket coverage in the secondary and can prevent an offense from functioning properly.

Schiano prematurely extinguished football in the “Cigar City” by misusing Revis for in excess of two months.

Revis signed a six-year contract worth $96 million and could have helped Tampa Bay reach the playoffs for the first time in six seasons.

Instead, fielding the league’s 14th ranked defense, the Bucs are battling Atlanta for the basement in the NFC South.

The 2009 AFC Defensive Player of the Year has only recorded two interceptions and 33 tackles over 11 contests.

Revis’ numbers and performances have looked pedestrian because Schiano is completely rudderless.

As an overall squad, despite their hideous record, the Bucs are “not real bad.”

However, Greg Schiano is a “real bad” coach and Tampa Bay needs “to figure that out.”
