Tampa Bay Buccaneers Greg Schiano says that the “Fire Schiano” signs at Raymond James Stadium and across Tampa do not bother him.

And it does not appear like the Bucs will fire Schiano on Friday. However, according to several sources, the Bucs could fire Schiano before the end of the season.

Right now, the Bucs are 0-7 and are tied with fellow Florida team, the Jacksonville Jaguars, who are also 0-7. The Bucs suffered their seventh straight loss after losing 31-13 to the Carolina Panthers on Thursday Night Football on the NFL Network.

The Bucs have not won a game since December 30th, 2012 against the Atlanta Falcons. In that game, the Bucs won 22-17 to finish the season with a 7-9 record.

However, one has to go back to November 11th, 2012, to find the Bucs’ last win at Raymond James Stadium. In that game against the San Diego Chargers, the Bucs won 34-24.

Since that time, the Bucs are also 0-7 at their home stadium. This is the longest home losing streak since the 1976-77 season when the Bucs wore their old orange jerseys.

In 2009, the Bucs cleared house by firing head coach Jon Gruden and general manager Bruce Allen. Then, under the new administration led by head coach Raheem Morris and general manager Mark Dominik, the team went 3-13.

This season, the team may not make it to 3-13 as they have a daunting test still left. In addition, the team has won 39% of their regular season games since 1976.
