When will the masses learn that this Gruden clown is a f'ing joke! hasn't done crap! but ride on the back of a team that DUNGY put together and won a superbowl. after that, it's been nothing but running fan favorites out of town and bringing in his own personal has beens. I was really hoping this would be his last year!

When will this Gruden era end?!?

Bianchi, shut up. No one likes you, not even other Gators fans.

Garcia is mature enough to handle the idea that the Bucs might want to improve, and that means looking under every rock. I'm glad they didn't get Favre, but I think you're vastly overstating the impact this is going to have going into the season.

If animosities linger, it'll be more likely because the media took a relatively minor story about some low-level talks between the Packers and Bucs, and blew it out of proportion and won't let it go. Then they'll go ask Garcia repeatedly if he's upset over it, because, you know, that's "aggressive investigative reporting", and what do you know, suddenly you have team morale coming apart at the seams. Over some conversations that might not have been all that serious or produced results anyhow.

Let the Bucs handle this on their own. Sticking your oar in the water will only muck things up worse.

The lost credibility is Brett's. He's old, he's retired, he should stay retired. He got bored so he stirred up some trouble but he won't last the season. Too bad about how Gruden fell for the hype. He'll get over it. The Orlando Sentinel, on the other hand, will not get over its most recent surgery. It is fading away in favor of the Thrifty Nickle and the Orlando Weekly.

God forbid you would interview a player. Maybe give us your commentary on how the offensive line is doing in Camp. Nope ... you give us gossip and innuendo. What a GURL.

Honestly is there a reporter on the Sentinel staff with less journalistic credibility or more hypocrisy than Bianchi? Seriously sir, you are to journalism what Rush Limbaugh is to radio/tv talk. You operate soley in hyperbole. Which you present as obvious truth, and to do so by using the opposing views own hyperbole against them.
Your writing, like Limbaugh's radical political tripe, or reality tv's human effacing form of entertainment, makes me feel sullied for having been exposed to it.
Somehow, I hoped that despite your similar form with the majority of your Magic coverage, it might be different for this piece on the Bucs. I was wrong.
Shame on me for thinking so.
Shame on the Sentinel for putting this as their cover piece on the sports section.
I know I've learned from this not to click on a Bianchi article again. I hope the Sentinel brass thinks it should learn a lesson here as well.
Obviously written by a Democrat. And we all know that Democrats have no common sense. So what you state means nothing.

And, I bet the dolphins also blew it when they didn't draft Brady Quinn two years ago. Here is how it works: You get a marquee player so you get interest in your team and you create a frenzy. Obviously, no frenzy in either Miami or Tampa, but a huge frenzy in New York!! Loyalty no longer means anything. If it did, Dungy would still be at Tampa.

Fave tanked in his last game when it counted because he ran out of "gas".

Bianchi, your an idiot, Garcia doesn't care about the bucs at all, all he's worried about is his money. He a big cry baby and threatened to retire and quit on the bucs when he didn't get the contract he wanted. What goes around comes around, you notice how he got real quite about his contract demands when the Farve talks started. Football is a business and there is no room for cry babies, Garcia needs to shut up and play football, and Bianchi you just need to shut the hell up.
Exactly.

Bianchi, shove a pitch fork up your ass. You have lost all credibility with me and everyone I know. I hope the sentinel gets it together and finds a writer with a little more creativity.

Everyone keeps saying that Gruden got to the SB with Dungy's players...i'll give you that...but the team across the field was his Raiders

The Bucs blew it when they brought in Chucky - Gruden and Allen need to go. I hope that Garcia finds a team that will give him a bit of respect he has earned. I was a Buc's fan when they had a great coach - Tony Dungy.

I understand that after the 50 employees were laid off at the slantinel, that there were more layoffs to come. I hope you are in the list of people to be fired. Good luck flipping burgers,

Exactly right! and the raiders ran Grudens play book against him, talk about a gift! But all kidding aside Gruden is a great coach. Tampa hasnt exactly had any star QBs. Garcia is their best bet.
