Brooks Says “Ingredients” Are “Win Now”March 14th, 2014
Joe’s maintained numerous times that while Lovie Smith is enjoying a glorious honeymoon period now and has a big contract, the reality is Lovie faces the demand of every NFL head coach in these crazy-fun times of impatient fans and owners: win now.
Bucs icon and Hall of Famer Derrick Brooks took to the WDAE-AM 620 airwaves this morning and talked about the pieces in place for Lovie.
“They have a lot of ingredients there that says, ‘Win now,’” Brooks said.
While many fans think former rockstar general manager Mark Dominik was a heinous personnel man who crafted a colossal mess, Brooks is not in that camp and believes the Bucs failures last season weren’t all about talent.
“I really didn’t think they were far away last year. It was just, you know, a lot of distractions away from the field that I think creep in and affected this football team,” Brooks said.
