Lovie Saved Brother Of Chucky

Lovie saved this man's job.

Lovie saved this man’s job.

Interesting words from Brother of Chucky Monday during his day-after presser with the Fourth Estate of our nation’s capital.

The Redskins’ head coach was very grateful for the historic comeback to beat the Bucs, against Lovie Smith’s defense and, in part, because Lovie is scared of scoring points late in the first half .

In fact, Brother of Chucky indirectly thanked Lovie for still being employed, as documented by Peter Haley of CSN Washington.

In his Monday press conference, Gruden was asked about whether he wonders how different things would feel if his group kept playing like they did in the beginning of the contest and didn’t complete the turnaround. The question drew a slight grunt from the second-year coach, and then he responded.

“I’ll try not to think about that one,” he said. “I probably would not be standing up here today. I might’ve done something crazy.”

After letting out a good laugh, he continued: “It was a terrible start to a football game. It really was. And that’s what makes the victory all the more sweeter.”

Imagine that? What a difference in the mentality of the two coaches.

One guy was coaching to save his job, and the other was too scared to score points late in the first half.

And take a wild guess which one lost?

    What does he mean?

    Lovie scored points.

    With the writers, fans, press, Glazers, etc,etc,etc.

    He just piled on massive points on why he should be gone.

  2. The Buc Realist Says:

    hopefully, “Brother of Chucky” sank Lovie!!!

  3. Bucs Fan Since '76 Says:

    Joe – are we living in an echo chamber here or are the Glazer boys listening and sensing the fans are about to mutiny? If so, can we expect to hear from them?

  4. FortMyersDave Says:

    Yeah, it is a shame that the Bucs do not have a coach who is concerned about winning! The Glazers are also responsible for allowing Lovie to continue coaching after all these infuriating losses! The Bucs future might have been brighter if this DC debacle happened before the bye week; then the Glazers could have pulled the trigger and fired Lovie. Now we get to watch this moron lose to teams like the Rams, Bears, Saints and Falcons; matchups a competent coaching staff would have a decent chance of winning but not Lovie; he is a fossil who pretty much insures victories for Buc opponents. Leeman Bennett was handcuffed by a cheap Culverhouse: Lovie does not have that excuse; he is simply a bad coach that will probaly go 4-28 before the Glazers finally fire him…..

  5. FortMyersDave Says:

    Bucs Fan since ’76: I think the Glazers are listening but are probably upset that the Jags are establishing a foothold in London while they are stuck with Lovie. The Glazers want 2 home games away from RJS in return for $75 million in upgrades to RJS before the 2017 Natl Title game: why???? I am guessing to move games to Wembley; Joe why else would the little bean counters be trying asking the sports authority to move 2 games a season?????? They could probably appease the people who oversee RJS by simply sending their Man U to play a “Friendly” against a MLS team at RJS for each Buc home game exported and make a lot of coin as those would sell out unlike games with Lovie’s Bucs…. That being said I feel that the Glazers do not care how bad the Bucs play, in fact 2-14 might aid them in moving the games if season ticket sales for 2016 bottom out as I predict they will after Lovie runs this team to a 2 win season….. Too bad Malcolm is not around, at least he wanted to win…..

    Finally someone taking notice to being okay with packing up the first half.

  7. bucrightoff Says:

    Jay’s probably wishing he started Colt or Cousins last year instead of RGIII. Then Lovie would have gone 1-15 and he’d be 3-19 as coach.

  8. Michael Johnson Says:

    At this point I’m not sure Lovie can save his job. He might.. .But its gonna take divine intervention. Players like him but fail to perform. Secondary must be gutted. Jennings, Jenkins, Conte..and yes even Banks gotta go. No communication nor chemistry there. None whatsoever. That was truly pitiful last Sunday. They were..walked down and humiliated by the starship Enterprise featuring Capt Kirk Cousins and crew. Lets see what Lovie’s got. It cannot get any worse. We already know we are in the top 3 for draft picks next year.

  9. Bobby Says:

    How stupid are Bucs fans??! Now it’s the Glazer’s fault because they haven’t spent enough money?? No…..of course not. How quickly we forget all the FA money they spent to try and upgrade this wreck. Finally we’re starting to see some good drafts and I see tremendous improvement on the offensive side of the ball. The defense is pretty sound everywhere except the back end and the secondary is absolutely atrocious. We stopped the ground game of the Skins and all we had to do was cover some receivers and that was too much to ask. If it doesn’t get fixed and fixed soon then someone has to be fired and players have to be replaced. They should try and get Ronde to coach the DB’s but he’s got a nice cushy job in the booth so he probably wouldn’t be interested. We’re close to being a good team but the weak link is the secondary. No such thing as a coverage sack with our team.

  10. The Buc Realist Says:


    Now that Lovie has point the finger and blame at players. I don’t think that will help the “buy in” now, not that they totally bought in before. Things could get very ugly quickly!!!!

  11. bucrightoff Says:

    How stupid is it Bobby that the single best corner in the league was cut by our coach who thought he didn’t need an elite talent back there? Extremely damning indictment, probably the most damning showcase of his incompetence.

  12. OneLove Says:

    Getting rid of Lovie would be the DUMBEST thing this franchise could do. UNLESS you get a chance to bring in someone like Jim Harbaugh, BUT THAT AINT HAPPENING!!

    I agree, this defense is pathetic, but it has nothing to do with the scheme or the PLAYCALLING!! Sure you can foot the blame on who the players are, but WHAT ELSE CAN THIS GUY DO!!?? HE IS IN THE PROCESS OF REBUILDING THIS TEAM!! I REPEAT, YOU DO NOT REBUILD THROUGH FREE AGENCY!!! That has NEVER BEEN THE CASE!! Sure, you try to improve certain positions through free agency, but that’s a crapshoot!(JUST LOOK AT JIMMY GRAHAM!!!)

    Are you going to tell me that John Fox and John Harbaugh are also bad coaches!?!? The answer to that is NO LADIES!! They are suffering from a LACK of talent, which is also the case for us!

    Now if we were the Dolphins and Lovie had Suh, Vernon, and Wake to work with and we were still giving up 30 points a game then I’d be with you!! But he has McCoy, scrub, scrub, and another scrub to work with!!! AND DON’T YOU DARE GET ME STARTED ON THAT DOLPHINS SECONDARY!!

    So you need to all relax and do whatever you need to do to make yourselves feel happy, (smoke a dooby, watch fox news, put a wang in your mouth, etc) and let’s weather the storm together!!


    “It’s as simple as that” – Lovie Smith

  13. The Buc Realist Says:

    It is now a race to 8!!! that is right, 8 Losses and Lovie will be a career losing coach!!! once he gets his career record to what it should be, Fire him, he will never be a head coach in the NFL again. And then finally fix this mess of a team!!!!

  14. Buccfan37 Says:

    The Glazer’s silence speaks volumes. Are they still in the living world? Probably more pressing matters to deal with. That’s entertainment.

  15. Idontwannahearitanymore Says:


    I dare you!

  16. Tampa Tony Says:

    It’s as simple as that, Lovie sucks. His scheme sucks. He doesn’t adapt his scheme to his players, he doesn’t discipline his players for after the whistle penalties.

    Guy is a joke!!!

  17. JMN Says:

    Well Jay’s job was saved this week at least due to the ineptitude of the Bucs defensive coaching staff and lack of talent on the Bucs D. He is still coaching a bad team for a bad organization. It never ends well for any coach in Washington DC.
