There’s been plenty of discussion about the dire state of affairs in the NFC South this season, but Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith may have offered the best way to illustrate just how bad the four teams in that division have been this year.

Smith met the media on Monday after the latest Bucs loss and talked about whether he would start giving more playing time to younger players as his 2-9 team played out the final five weeks. The comments came before the Saints lost to the Ravens and made Smith’s assessment of the team’s situation ring even more true.

We’re two games out of first place,” Smith said, via ESPN.com. “We are still in the playoff hunt. So there’s no looking at younger players — it’s who gives us our best chance to win, period. So it’s pretty easy for us right now. Forget the record right now; everyone in the NFC South is disappointed and has let games get away and feel like they’re a pretty good football team — we’re right in the mix of that. So it’s full steam ahead for Cincinnati for us.”

You could quibble with Smith or any other member of an NFC South team thinking they’re a pretty good football team, but not with the reality of the situation. It might not be the likeliest outcome, but the Buccaneers could win the division and no coach in that position is going to ignore that possibility just because they might win it with an otherwise embarrassing record.

So we have Smith, Payton and now Lovie all making ***** of themself. Would Ron like to step up and make a rah rah speech right now and insert foot into mouth?

Ron has been saying it all year. Back when we actually still looked like a football team and had a chance to run away with the division, he would compound the losses by saying sh*t like "It's okay guys, look at the rest of the South. Lol they all suck, we're still like 2 games ahead of 2nd place, we got this".

Aaaand now here we are.

Now it's: "well all we need to do now is win out. We can do it. We're right in the mix"
