Schiano: 2011 Bucs were done in by inconsistency

TAMPA – Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano has evaluated the tape of his new team’s discouraging 4-12 2011 season and he’s convinced that it wasn’t the porous play of the defense or the rash of mistakes made by the quarterback that did them in.
Rather it was the inability to play at a consistent level week in and week out.
“Inconsistency is probably the biggest one-word answer to that,’’ Schiano said when asked during a ProFootballTalk interview Thursday what it was that led to the Bucs downfall last year.
“You watch the tape and there are some really positive things on the video,’’ Schiano told PFT Live host Mike Florio. “But then there are some equally negative things there as well.’’
Schiano said he believes he inherited a team that has some talent and also believes the Bucs have added to that talent base by signing free agents such as wide receiver Vincent Jackson and guard Carl Nicks.
“But this league is filled with talented players and (so) we need to build a culture here that’s very specific and very clear and (if we do that) I think we’re going to have a chance to get better and get better quickly,’’ Schiano said.
