The Bucs played until the final whistle. The Panthers did not.

For all the heat Schiano has taken from some about his "toes on the line" approach (and especially things like the kneel downs), that philosophy may be the big reason the Bucs won yesterday.

When the Panthers were up by 11 with 4 minutes to go. They sort of went into a lull believing they had the game pretty much wrapped up. That gave the Bucs a chance to change the momentum. The "what the **** just happened?" look on Cam Newton's face at the end of regulation pretty much says it all. And by that time it was too late for Carolina to flip the momentum back their way.

The Panthers not only swept the Bucs last season but outscored us 86-35. In one year we've flipped that around and swept them. Yet another indicator of how much has changed.

Who cares if Schiano is as disliked around the league as Belichick? It doesn't stop Belichick from winning. And it won't stop free agent talent from coming here if they see the organization and coaching is serious about winning games.

"Toes on the line" doesn't work. These are grown men.

   Now that the players are getting a glimpse of what they are capable of achieving by following Schiano's directives, I expect next year the players will have "toes on the line" without Schiano having to mention it. That's what success will do... ;D

yeah it doesnt work, this year is clearly proof of this.
It wasnt just about "toes on the line" it was about attention to detail in every aspect of their job.  It was his way to change the culture of the team. It worked, the players and fans believe and yours is the dumbest post with nothing of substance to back it up i have ever read

Toes on the line is also about discipline and accountability. They are grown men indeed, but there are many grown undisciplined men out there. So much of that approach came into play yesterday and was the reason they won. The last couple of years this was not the case....

I still think they need a sarcasm emoticon. Btw what's the sarcasm color out of curiosity?
