“It’s How You Finish”March 13th, 2014
An interesting revelation this morning by Lovie Smith was that he enjoys listening to “talk radio.” In the context of his conversation on WDAE-AM 620, it was clear Lovie was talking about the beloved bellowing, analysis and fan ranting of sports radio.
It’s something Lovie says he did plenty of in his Illinois basement after getting booted by the Bears. Man, Lovie must have a strong stomach, especially if he was watching film of the Bucs’ pass rush.
(Perhaps Lovie will be tuned in when Joe joins the dean of Tampa Bay sports radio, Steve Duemig of WDAE, later at 5 p.m. for a rescheduled JoeBucsFan Hour?)
Also this morning, Lovie wanted to clarify to fans that backup quarterback Mike Glennon is still important. The reasoning was obvious: “It’s how you finish,” said Lovie, who reminded everyone that if new Bucs No. 1 quarterback Josh McCown falters or goes down, then the Bucs will need to lean on their depth chart.
Enjoy Lovie’s full audio below. He makes it clear again that the Bucs wanted to keep Darrelle Revis, which remains a somewhat mind-blowing concept.
