Herm Talks Lovie

January 7th, 2016

Herm discusses Lovie’s firing.

Yesterday when Team Glazer jettisoned Lovie Smith as Bucs coach, it hit close to home for Lovie’s good friend, Herm Edwards of BSPN.

Herm also coached with the Bucs when Lovie was an assistant. He even came to hang out with Lovie at One Buc Palace when he took over two years ago.

Herm shares his thoughts on Lovie and the Bucs in this BSPN video.

    I’m not against Coughlin and as a 68 year old dude who feels great I hate ageism.
    I do not believe he is too old. He would simply be starting from scratch!!!

    Do we REALLY want to do that again.

    Koetter is the no brainer…he already knows all the situations and the players and the battle to overcome our losing culture.

  2. OneLove Says:

    I agree SBBF, it has to be Koetter!

  3. AceofAerospace Says:

    I’m only dreaming as I pine for a return of Gruden. If offered to Gruden, I’d expect him to pull a Parcell and leave the Glazer dots standing at the altar looking like fools. The only logical choice is Koetter.

  4. Love and Warrick Dunn Says:

    Maybe Coughlin would like to move up to a cushy office job like Team President?

    Nothing like some valued experience in Licht’s ear.

    SPPBF…correct on both fronts. It’s Koetter. Sure it’s a head scratcher for Herm, he predicted the Bucs would make a run at a SB last season.

    Why does Herman Edwards have job with such predictions? Why do they keep asking this fool what he thinks?

  6. Buc1987 Says:

    SPBF…oh the second front…correct on ageism…(some new liberal term I suppose), I’m only 45 and I feel like crap all the time. Don’t hire any 40-somethings. lol

    when the rookie qb > the head coach, it no longer counts that the head coach had a rookie qb.

    when the rookie qb > the handpicked veteran qb from the previous season, it no longer counts that the head coach had a rookie qb.

    when you win 8 games over the previous two seasons, and have 2 top-10 draft picks, you are not a “great coach”

    when you defense shows absolutely ZERO improvement from your first season to the second, and it is not the 2001 buc’s defense, then you are not a “great coach”

    SPBF and Buc1987… I’m 46 years old in a high stress job. Last year we hired a 75 year old guy that works under me, I can tell you that I had a lot of trepidation when he came on. Would he be able to keep up? Would he be able to work with people that were 40 plus years younger? Well let me tell you he more than kept up, in a lot of ways he was a pace setter. Not to mention that he has seen almost everything there is to see in our business.
    I would still hire Koetter because I don’t want to start over again, but I would have zero problem with hiring anyone that still has the hunger.

    @d wood

    No one gives a dam about your job or how old he is or whatever.

    Tom Coughlin was born August 31, 1946 (age 69), so he’ll turn 70 before the 2016 season opener. With that said, he’s as spry as a 50 year old and could probably whip most of us in a fistfight. The question is, does he have the desire to jump into this franchise and lead a major reclamation project? Surely there will be other opportunities with teams that are in a better position than the Bucs, he should have his pick of the litter.

    8-24. You play to win the game!

  12. Curse of Gruden Says:

    Every job is “high stress” or they wouldn’t pay someone to do it.

  13. Ray Rice Says:

    C’Mon Herm! At least your boy will make your prediction come true now. He can now go to the SB as you predicted.

    It all depends on how you take care of yourself. I’ll be 43 this year and I feel and have been told a million times that I look awesome. And they’re right. I take awesome care of myself and feel tons better now than I did a few years ago when I was still trying to play in the top full-contact flag leagues. I know my limitations and I live smarter which enables me to train harder and feel great. If Coughlin truly feels great and has great energy, then good for him, I believe it. I’m not a big Coughlin fan. I’d like Koetter to get the job for continuity’s sake and give Ron Meeks the DC job. The dude did wonders with crappy defensive talent for Dungy and Caldwell in Indianapolis and he could do the same for us.

    I feel sorry for my fellow Bucs fans. Not for Lovie. Hell, the Glazers still owe him what? 2 or 3 yrs more salary? I said in previous postings all yr long, Be careful What You wish for. Sports reporters there in TB carefully plotted against Lovie. Feeding questions to Jameis about how great Koetter is. Well, Lovie Haters? You won. And you will soon see Koetter does not have all of the answers. I can’t wait. Yes, he will score in Bunches. But you see, you gotta build a Defense. They don’t happen overnight. 3 coaches in 5 yrs? But..You won! Lovies gone. And He will probably come back to haunt Tampa Bay. Get ready for another 2 sub par below 500 seasons. While Carolina rules the division. I was not all in on Lovie. But he was headed in the right direction. We refused to let him get there. So lets see who we fire in the next..2 yrs.
