Greg Schiano, among those who ran off quarterback Josh Freeman in a display that reminded me of a coach trying to coach NFL players the same way he coached college players, continues to … well … I'm not really sure what the hell he's trying to do here.

According to the Pewter Report, Schiano told suite ticket holders on Thursday that the team was a laughingstock before he arrived and that's why he was hired.

Oh, and this.

In case you've missed it, that's a third-person reference.

Just in case you've forgotten, the Buccaneers nearly agreed to terms with Chip Kelly to be their head coach before the now-Eagles coach rebuffed the organization and returned to coach for another year at Oregon. Yeah, Schiano wasn't the team's first choice.

And in case Schiano needs a reminder, here's his career NFL win-loss percentage.

Now, just for comparison's sake, here was the percentage of previous Buccaneers coach Raheem Morris.

3 yrs4817310.354

So, um yeah, Morris' actually is better. Pretty funny for a laughingstock, right?
