So a lot of the so-called experts thought Lovie Smith would be on the hot seat at the start of next season.
Guess what? His seat is now open.
The Bucs fired Lovie last night after two disappointing seasons in which he only won 8 games.
I love how the national media are “stunned” by this. To me, the only surprising element is that Tampa Bay chose 10pm on a Wednesday night to make the move.
Clearly, the others just looked at the Bucs being ranked in the top 10 in total offense and defense. They obviously didn’t actually pay attention to what happened in the Red Zone, or the record-setting number of penalties.
I’ll have more to say a bit later. For now. I say that I agree with this move.
