Much has been made of the players only team meeting that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers held recently.

There were reports that the meeting took place because Bucs' players were unhappy wtih head coach Greg Schiano. However, long snapper Andrew Economos, one of the players who called the meeting, said it wasn't that way at all.

“It was me and a few other guys that spoke and it was kind of a pep rally thing,’’ Economos told the Tampa Tribune. “We’ve got a lot of talent in this room and we wanted to get it together and … speak in one direction, and that’s what we did.’’
