Greg Schiano and his coaching staff were outclassed in the second half.
In the first half, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers seemed to have it all figured out.
They were being creative with their play-calling, mixing in fake (and real) reverses and a halfback jump pass on offense, and the defense was containing Russell Wilson and keeping Golden Tate out of the game.
There was a pleasant mix of aggressive decisions, like a surprise onside kick, and smart football, like Mike James' 17 carries for 82 yards as a part of a balanced offense.
Then, the second half happened.
The play-calling on offense reverted to poor route combinations that left Mike Glennon as a sitting duck in the pocket, and the running game was largely abandoned, as James would carry the ball 11 more times despite holding a lead.
The team would be forced to punt late in the game after failing to convert on a 3rd-and-short on which they elected to throw (and run deep routes) rather then stick with their proven running attack.
The Seahawks would tie the game on their ensuing possession.
Greg Schiano and his crew of coaches have proven one thing during their time in the NFL: They're capable of wasting some of the best talent the league has to offer.
This team is too good to be 0-8.
