Forte Confirms Lovie Has “Hands Off” OffenseJanuary 24th, 2014
Joe had his Hawaiian team all over Pro Bowl practices this week talking Bucs and more with various players (video tonight and tomorrow).
Bears running back Matt Forte weighed in on his former head coach, Lovie Smith.
As expected, Forte has much love for Lovie and said Buccaneers players instantly will feel in good competent hands.
“They’re going to know right off that he’s a great coach, just his attitude and approach to the game,” Forte said.
And yes, Jeff Tedford will be one powerful coordinator.
JoeBucsFan.com: Is Lovie really hands-off on the offense like most fans assume?
Matt Forte: Yeah, I mean that’s why he hires his coordinators. The offensive coordinator is going to handle that part and he’s hands on with the defense.
Hearing that makes Joe wonder again how much Greg Schiano’s pride in being hands on in all phases of the game bogged down the Bucs offense. Joe’s so glad the NFL’s worst offense is in fresh hands.
