“Just Do Right”

April 8th, 2014

BrooksLovieLovie Smith got to deliver the inaugural Lovieball address in Tampa yesterday. The Bucs reported back for duty, which starts with conditioning and classroom work, per league rules.

So what did Lovie tell his troops?

Well, the media doesn’t have access to the Bucs until this afternoon, but Buccaneers.com reporter Scott Smith, of course, has insider capability. He caught up with well-paid defensive end Michael Johnson and asked about Lovie’s message. You can hear Johnson’s response in this video.

The key quote was Lovie advising the team, “Just do right,” (aka Don’t Be Like Mike) and Johnson went on to say all things you’d expect, like how Lovie treated everyone like men. (No word on what the room temperature was in team meetings.)

As Joe mentioned, select Bucs will be chatting with media types today. So keep coming back. There’s plenty happening today.

    I wonder if he broke out Dungy’s “I wish I could get rid of some of you now but can’t” speech.

    Probably not cause he HAS gotten rid of them.

    Maybe…”when you play for this team you also have a responsibility to illiminate moronic off the field behavior. I’m giving you Ronde’s, Lynch’s, and Brooks’s phone number if you feel you need further explanation.

    When he heard “just do right”, Joe’s eyes crossed and his head started spinning. He tried really hard to process that information but came away befuddled. Why would a coach care anything about this mythical “right” stuff, anyway? What does that word even mean? Then Joe simply walked away shaking his head, still unable to comprehend any concerns beyond football.
