The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are seemingly headed in one direction, and going there fast. That direction is to the basement of the NFL.
So that’s led to many fans of the team to tell the Glazer Family to “Quit playing games with our heart!” and Fire Greg Schiano.
Even Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys chimed in on Twitter to throw his support behind firing the coach.

Nick Carter has only love to give the Buccaneers, as he’s been a fan since the 90′s. Remember what jersey he was rocking in the chart-topping music video for “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)”? If you don’t remember, here’s a refresher.
So Carter has clearly been a fan of the team through thick and thin. The early and mid 90′s were a common time for a person to jump on the bandwagon in Tampa Bay, but to last until 2013 shows larger than life dedication.
So when he says it’s time to say “Bye, bye, bye” to the coach of the Buccaneers, the ownership should listen.
It would be far from the hardest thing the Buccaneers would ever have to do if they let go of Schiano. After all, he’s only won one of his last 13 games. And every other time you turn on the television or hop on Twitter, there’s another story about the Buccaneers that makes you put out the call for your team to change leadership.
So Carter took matters into his own hands, and said if someone’s going to let the Bucs know how the fans feel, it’s gonna be me. Now the fans must wait patiently and go step by step into the rest of the season as they wait for the team to make a decision on Schiano’s future.
But one thing’s for sure. No one has to show Nick Carter the meaning of being lonely on his “Fire Schiano” bandwagon. There are plenty of other Buccaneers fans there with him. And quite frankly, it makes me ill to see Schiano remain as the head coach of the Buccaneers.
