TAMPA (FOX 13) -

Buccaneers fans voiced their frustrations as Greg Schiano left the field to a chorus of boos. The mobs are angry after the Bucs' ninth loss in 10 games under Schiano.

Over the last 30 games, no NFC team has lost more.

"As I've said, it's everything," said Schiano after the game. "It starts with me, and it's our coaching and our playing - and the quarterback's part of that - but there's a bunch."

It's an offensive mess right now. Lack of points is the problem. Only Jacksonville has scored less.

Change in quarterback didn't change the results. The Bucs have scored just four offensive touchdowns this season, and three were setup by defensive turnovers. Their longest offensive drive this season has been just 44 yards.

"Ah, it's not getting any easier, I'll tell you that," said offensive lineman Carl Nicks. "A lot of it is on the offensive lines play for not doing better with Doug (Martin). It's sucks."

Defensively, the Bucs are playing winning football. They've held three of four opponents to 16 points or less.

"It's frustrating," said linebacker Lavonte David. "You just have to dig deep. Games like that you have to dig deep and find a way to win, someway, somehow. We have an off week next week, a lot of time to think – a lot of time to put things together. We have to stay together as a team. Stuff is going to come down hard on us because of the 0-4 start. We've got to stay together, stick together."

Sticking together won't be easy. This is the 10th time in franchise history the Bucs have started 0-4, and their best finish is six wins.
