Bucs Hire Lovie Smith


Recommended Posts

The Bears were 81-63 under Lovie. I'd say that's pretty threatening.

I remember a Bears fan telling me that Lovie Smith was the **** tease of coaches: He'd assemble a great team, they'd sometimes do well, you'd begin feeling like this was the year, but then they'd consistently make horrible decisions even a toddler would not make in key games and ruin everything and this would happen on an annual basis. He was/is overly loyal to "his guys," even when they are clearly failures.

So essentially imagine our team in Tampa.

There is a degree of truth to this, but their O line was always their downfall just like us. The Bears fans hated everything about their O, but the D carried the team.

Meh. The Bears consistently had good to great defenses with Smith but they rarely amounted to much anyway. I don't see that changing in Tampa.

because their QBs ranged from Orton, Rex "f*ck it I'm going deep" Grossman, Cutler with Devin Hester starting at WR, then Cutler with Brandon Marshall and Devin Hester starting at WR

their running back who's name is really escaping me right now is far from a workhorse and would get injured whenever Lovie tried to ride him...there's only been one defense in the modern NFL that didn't need an offense.

And that was his general failing. He's so focused on defense that the offense tends to be garbage every year. Going full blown defense was alright in the years when the NFC, by and large, was close to total garbage but that isn't the case now. His defensive tunnel vision will, as it did when he was in Chicago more often than not, bite him in the ***.

he was learning his lesson in Chicago, they just got tired of his sh*t...I'm sure they miss his Cover 3 base after that GB debacle

This is what Lovies defense did his last year in Chi-town.........The Bears ranked fifth in total yards allowed last season and eighth against both the run and pass. They also led the NFL with 44 takeaways (24 interceptions, 20 fumble recoveries) and scored nine touchdowns, one shy of the all-time record for a defense

started the year 7-1 and played to 10-6 with a carousel at QB

Well the Tampa 2 and Revis don't mix one bit.

Peanut Tillman was allowed to shadow receivers some games(the 2 Lions games in 12 I believe) and was allowed to play his flat zone aggressive as Revis played his man coverage...Lovie doesn't play soft with his corners unless they go cover 3. he also employs plenty of Cover 1s
