Defensive coordinator's 'call for help' sparks protest

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA (FOX 13) -

Before Sunday's 6th loss in a row, defensive coordinator Bill Sheridan was asked what he'd say to fans questioning the play calling.

"What I want to invite them to do is to join us, I get in about 5:20 every morning. They're more than welcome to hang around to 11. They can help us put the game plan together. We got all the free Cokes in the building and we'll be happy to take their suggestions," he told the media.

It was tongue in cheek, but be careful what you wish for.

"Bill Sheridan invited us down here we took him up on his offer," said Ted Beverly.

Meet Bucs fans Ted Beverly and Jason Tackett. They've been showing up around five every morning at One Buc Place, with their signs and suggestions.

"Definitely sit down talk about defensive we feel the team's running questionable play calls," Tackett said.

So far they say Schiano and Sheridan have just driven right by, no wave, no coffee and none of those free Cokes.

They plan to keep showing up until they're let in, or until the Bucs' coaches get the ax.

"They don't have a win yet so what can not bring to the table what can we not help with," Tackett said.

620 WDAE Radio Host Steve Duemig calls the picketing a sign the bucs have hit rock bottom.

So what should the team do about it?

"You could at least acknowledge if it's just 2 cut it off at the bud if it gets to 200 and it might with the way they're playing, then you've really got a problem," Duemig said.
