Women's World Cup:

Schiano: Buccaneers to use more man coverage

The SportsXchange

At 0-7, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers reviewed almost everything about their team while painfully taking in the game film from a 31-13 loss to the Carolina Panthers last Thursday.

Coach Greg Schiano said one of the changes the Buccaneers will consider is using cornerback Darrelle Revis in man-to-man coverage more frequently.

"That's something I've looked at hard, and I know our coaches have looked at it as well," Schiano said.

When general manager Mark Dominik acquired Revis for multiple draft picks and worked out a contract that pays him more than $17 million per season, they were betting on Revis' ability to take away the top receiver on any team, as he'd done before injuring his ACL with the New York Jets to earn the nickname "Revis Island."

Revis is in the first year of a six-year, $96 million contract that includes no guaranteed payouts.
