TAMPA, FL (WFLA) - A billboard appears to call for the firing of Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano.

The sign is located at the intersection of Bearss and Nebraska Avenues.  It has the words "FIRE SCHIANO" in large letters against a fiery background.  The billboard also contained a logo for the radio station 102.5 FM The Bone.

The Bucs head coach has been in the hot seat recently, as the team has racked up a record of 0-6 for the current season.  The Bucs will play the Carolina Panthers on Thursday night, after losing 31-23 to the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.

Rookie quarterback Mike Glennon only has three days to prepare for Thursday night's start against NFC South rival Carolina, and he'll likely have to try beat the Panthers without injured running back Doug Martin.

The Bucs have lost 10 of 11 dating to last season, six straight at home, and are running out of competition for the label of worst team in the league.
Tampa Bay and Jacksonville are the only teams who have yet to win this season. 

Schiano said losing hasn't weaken the team's resolve, adding "it could always be worse."
   
"I don't mean record-wise. I just mean in life, you've got to go with the next task at hand," he said.
