Hot seat getting warmer for Buccaneers' Schiano?

The winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers are 0-7, in the midst of a disastrous season following yet another loss as they fell 31-13 to the Carolina Panthers.

It seems inevitable that embattled coach Greg Schiano will pay for this disaster by being fired.

When will it happen? Reportedly, Schiano won't be immediately dismissed after fans chanted, "Fire Schiano," durign the game.

Schiano has maintained a stiff upper lip even as criticism mounts of his my-way-or-the-highway disciplinarian approach.

"It doesn't affect me," Schiano told reporters. "People are certainly entitled to their opinion. Here's the thing: My whole career, player and a coach, I get up in the morning and work as hard and as long as I can; usually puts you to bed tired, and you get up and do it again. You do it the best you can. Our players and coaches stick together. Sometimes, it doesn't go your way."

Next up for the Buccaneers: the formidable Seattle Seahawks on Nov. 3.

"You can sit there and cry about it and feel sorry for yourself," Schiano said. But that ain't going to help anything."
