Lovie Enjoys OffenseMay 10th, 2014
So in the first draft of the Lovie Smith era for the shot-caller of the Bucs, the defensive-minded Bucs coach oversaw a draft that consisted of nothing but offensive players.
Now that might say something about the prowess of former Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik, or the inability of former Bucs commander Greg Schiano to coach up a defense.
The leader of the Bucs seemed to infer the draft says more about him than anything.
“What can I say?” Smith said after the Bucs selected their final player of the 2014 draft. “You can’t assume people are a certain way. I do believe in offensive football. You just can win by just playing defense. I know I have been telling you guys that. I think that, now, the actions are speaking a little bit louder than the words.”
Naturally, when it came to offense, the topic du jour is backup quarterback Mike Glennon. Thusly, Lovie was peppered with questions about Glennon. Lovie stated he has been impressed with Glennon more as he got a chance to know him, work with him and watch him practice.
Said Lovie, “We like Mike Glennon and Mike has an excellent future in this league.”
