McCoy: Lovie Wants It Bad

December 27th, 2015

Gerald McCoy says his head coach is extraordinarily hungry

Man, Joe can’t wait to see if the Bucs show up today and come out with a fire for their allegedly beloved head coach, in addition to the legions of suffering Bucs fans.

Coming out “flat” for the third consecutive game would be unacceptable on so many levels.

Adding intrigue would be Gerald McCoy’s comments on the Buccaneers Radio Network a few days ago. McCoy said Lovie Smith did not address players specifically on his personal yearning to beat the Bears but it’s widely known by McCoy and teammates that Lovie is aching to drill his former team.

McCoy emphasized that beating Chicago would mean an awful lot to Lovie and McCoy wants to deliver that victory.

For those asleep through life, Lovie was fired by the Bears after the 2012, one in which his team collapsed and missed the playoffs after starting 7-1. The Bucs were throttled in Chicago last year, the famous game where Josh McCown threw 48 times but later noted he couldn’t manipulate the slick balls and throw it where he wanted.

Let’s go, Bucs. Let’s show up for your head coach.

    The Bucs have lost to the Rams, Saints and Colts when those teams got pounded before and after playing us. We can likely lose to any team in the league, though I believe we should be capable of playing with most. The Bears got walloped last week; would it surprise anyone if we made Jay Cutler look like Tom Brady today?

    Should be coaching for his job today. Another incredibly easy team, with multiple injuries, that the Bucs should easily beat. If they lose this I know the usual Lovie Loser Crew will show up and assume the position on their knees, but I imagine everyone else will have had enough with a loss today, and a 6-10 finish from a 6-6 position with a likely national TV humiliation against the Panthers were they are taking selfies during the live game action.

    If we won 5 superbowls back to back people would complain about losing the 6th.

    I wonder if it ever sets in to some NFL coaches around the league year in and year out that they will get paid either way win or lose, so hey no biggie either way.

    Or are they just so professional that stuff like that never crosses their mind.

    In the words of Hillary Clinton ” at this point what difference does it make!!??”

  6. Buc1987 Says:

    Schiano’s deal was worth $15 million over 5 years, so it was much easier letting him go than Lovie’s five-year, $25 million deal.

    Something tells me that the Bucs won’t be letting Lovie go after 2015. Maybe after 2016 if they get the same results.

    It’s going to be a loooong offseason of reading attack comments about Lovie.

  7. Buc1987 Says:

    Buc Believer…Yes. How fitting since no one in America trusts that woman.

  8. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    If they lose this week and lose as bad in Carolina as Raheem did at the end of 2011, do you think he comes back Buc1987? Let’s just say the next two weeks…

    Chicago 27 Tampa Bay 21
    Carolina 56 Tampa Bay 14

    Still think he’s coming back? Remember that also includes losing to a horrible Saints team and Case Keenum to go 0-4 to finish. Bringing him back means season ticket cancellations and an angry fan base going into next year. Just won’t end well. They’d be doing everyone a favor firing him. That Schiano has a job now makes it easier because now they aren’t paying any coaches besides Lovie.

  9. Buc1987 Says:

    Dog Poo…..yeah he’s coming back.

    Keep in mind I’m no Lovie Smith fan either. I think most of his supporters see DUNGY when they see Lovie. I’m sure most of them did when they hired him anyways. I hope that ship is sailed, but I think we have some stragglers on this site.

    Raheem’s contract was dirt compared to Lovie’s 5 mil per yr guaranteed.

    Lovie will drag out a win against all odds and everything will be hunky dory in Lovieville.

    Lol bears are not a good team. But I expect Cutler to carve the d that Lovie wants so badly (yes ) up.
