2008 Is Chucky’s Best Job

Steve Wyche of contends this season has been Chucky's best coaching job.

Given the impending departure of defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin, the myriad of running backs injuries, the White Tiger disappearance and a period of games started by Son of Bob, the Bucs are tied for the NFC South with four games to go.

This, writes Steve Wyche of, is Chucky’s finest hour.

This is nothing more than a puff piece written for the NFL’s Internet organ.

No team has repeated as NFC South champion since the division was created in 2002. Tampa Bay, at 9-3, has positioned itself to become the first, after finishing in first with a 9-7 record in 2007. It would also be the Bucs’ third division title in four seasons. Gruden entered the season with a 48-48 record in six seasons with Tampa Bay. He’s plus-six now and will finish the season with a positive mark regardless of how things play out over the final month.

Joe is of two minds with Chucky: Joe thinks Chucky is a pretty good at calling plays and he’s a motivator. Chucky also alienates too many people and isn’t exactly a straight arrow with players. He grates on people.

Joe will forever be indebted to Chucky for pushing the Bucs over the top for a Super Bowl win. But if Chucky doesn’t win a playoff game this January, well, Joe hopes Chucky has his mortgage paid off.
