Charismatic?
Winner The classic version of Dracula (this is pre-Twilight) is a charming, seductive gentleman. He is fair skinned, mysterious, and - based on that big, dark mansion - probably rich. Very easy to fall for.
Angry and screaming all the time.
Temperamental?
For this, we look to the classic werewolf: a creature that’s almost human for most of the month, only to turn into a raging beast at the first sign of a full moon.
Winner Reports suggest that he’s a raging jerk 24/7.
Prone to Biological Outbreaks?
Winner Sure. Zombies are the ultimate biological weapon. With just a few zombies let loose, you could have a worldwide epidemic.
While we can’t prove Schiano caused the MRSA outbreak in the Bucs locker room, and although it’s not as fatal as a zombie outbreak, it’s still super icky.
Able to be Tamed?
Quite the contrary. Frankenstein’s monster ended up killing his master, his master’s wife, and a few others. Spoiler alert, I guess.
Winner Yep. Apparently, Schiano turns into an eager li’l puppy-dog around Bill Belichick
Able to defeat the mighty hero?
Not usually. There’s typically some attractive hero or heroine able to put these menaces back in their place.
Winner Sadly, yes. He tried having the Bucs' Super Bowl MVP Dexter Jackson kicked out of practice when he stopped by to watch. And though that didn’t work, he kicked out a bunch of young fans.
Awful?
I don't know. Jekyll and Hyde are pretty cool. And mummies are underrated.
Winner The actual worst.

The Winner Is

Winner Greg Schiano
4 out of 6

So there you have it, folks. With a score of 4-2, Bucs coach Greg Schiano has wrested the title of “Halloween’s Greatest Monster” from a full team of monsters. So, uh...congratulations?
