It Is A Good Day In Tampa Bay

For those 25 percent of Bucs fans unnerved by the dismissal of Lovie Smith, Joe brings calming words from afar that should provide comfort this weekend.

The Bucs are in good hands, says popular sports radio and television personality Adam Schein. And that’s because the Bucs are being run by Bucs AC/DC-loving general manager Jason Licht.

And good results will follow, said Schein on his SiriusXM Radio show, “Schein on Sports” Thursday morning.

“Let me tell ya,’ Jason Licht, he is now going to run the coaching search and run the team and have full autonomy as opposed to Lovie? Let me tell you something: Go around and talk to people in the league. Jason Licht is fantastic,” Schein said. “He knows what the heck he is doing.

“[Licht] is excellent in terms of evaluating talent. Jason Licht, as a general manager, is a major, huge upgrade. A major, huge upgrade. This is a good day.”

Now Schein is a big defender of former Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik and even reminded listeners he thought Dominik should not have been released by Team Glazer. But Schein added Licht is every bit Dominik’s equal and more so.

No need to fret, Bucs fans, Licht will find the way out of this losing darkness.

    It Is a good day in Tampa Bay!!!! Optimism is in the air again!!!! I said the same thing in a earlier post!!! That the Glazers are not selecting the head coach this go around!

    And it is refreshing to know that change and trying to be a better football team is a better alternative to what would have been if the status quo would have been kept!!! So glad not to see the same old same old terrible product this year!!!!

    Rumors are starting that Nick Saban is interviewing for the bucs hc position.

  3. Buclife Says:

    I am optimistic about the future. May this be/been the last rebuild we have to go through.

    Who wanted Licht to be the GM?

  6. Supersam Says:

    I really like this Schein guy.

    Nick Saban rumors are just that..wild rumors. Everybody wired into the college game believe Saban will retire in Alabama. His wife does NOT want to move and how there are three generations of Sabans that live in Tuscaloosa/Birmingham.
    Nick isn’t going anywhere!

    Besides this is the kind of talk that worries me. Saban failed abysmally at Miami.
    Saban is one of the all time great college coaches…So is Steve Spurrier…do I need to go on or is a pattern starting to develop?

    If Koetter gets the job I’m going to breathe a massive sigh of relief. It will not only mean continuity…not just for #3 but the ENTIRE team. Perhaps more importantly to me however and back on the topic of this thread…

    If Koetter gets the job it means Licht has given that move his blessing. I trust Licht.

    BTW…again…the Glazers BRILLIANT move for their family’s future…leveraging the Bucs to get ManU…hosed the Bucs.

    Put aside that Man U move and the Glazers have made excellent moves at the coaching position.

    They hired Tony Dungy…listen like many of you I hated that style but Tony Dungy is a borderline…IMHO he should already be in…HOF candidate.
    He turned around a HORRID franchise and built the foundation for our Super Bowl.

    Then they hired Jon Gruden who got us over the hump and won the SB…

    Nothing wrong with either of those two hires and one lasted six years the other seven. And in fairness to Chucky midway through his tenure the Glazers cut off the money.

    Lovie is the FIRST coach since Chucky was hired to be given a fair shot in terms of $$$ and other resources. I realize many here feel he wasn’t given enough time but that’s another debate.

    The bottom line is that I always…lol…very optimistic. Licht is a very good GM so far…the Glazers had a good record of hiring coaches until they leveraged themselves to get ManU. No reason we can’t get a qualified coach especially SINCE HE’S ALREADY IN HOUSE!!!

    What upset me the most about Lovie was the (lack of) game day coaching. I enjoy watching NFL games and see what the teams do at half time to adjust to whatever is working for the opposition. It is amazing to see how small adjustments can shut down a particular dimension of an offense. And then to see how the offenses adjust to the new defense. With the Bucs that rarely seemed to happen. We just keep doing whatever we did in the first half, usually to our detriment. I think Licht saw that with more time Lovie’s team would continue to improve, but eventually we would need an enthusiastic x’s and o’s leader to fire the team up and make them believe that we can can be the moving target and force other teams to constantly adjust to us.

    We can have the greatest gm and personal people in the league but,if ownership is not on board it doesn’t matter also there will be a mistake here or there by any gm but you can’t keep running your gms off for 1 or 2 mistake ( again just my opinion. .iam not a nfl personal guy)

  10. Pete Mitchell Says:

    I agree that Saban is far fetched. But let’s not discount anything at this point. Did Pete Carroll come back from college as a much improved coach? There’s Bellichek’s well documented failure in Cleveland. Just because he failed in Miami doesn’t mean he fail here. And just because his wife doesn’t want to move doesn’t mean he won’t. The guy loves football, his life is football, if he wants to coach an NFL team I’m sure he will. Maybe not our’s, and maybe not right now, but if decides he wants to he will.

    And to point of the original story… Jason Licht has been a badass so far!

  11. Couch Fan Says:

    In Licht we trust!!

  12. lurker Says:

    i knew there was a licht at the end of the turmoil!

  13. StPeteBucsFan Says:


    Agree with you completely that Saban can pick his spot if he wants to return to the NFL. He’s had this opportunity for many years now. Why hasn’t he taken it?

    Perhaps because he had unfinished business in Bama and a win over Clemson and another title will make him feel he’s proven all that’s left to prove in the NCAA.

    Perhaps he’s obsessed with another mountain to climb.

    Perhaps because he would love to work with #3?

    All possibiiites for sure. If they could land Saban I wouldn’t protest but I wouldn’t be as excited as I would be over a Koetter hire simply because of the unknown. But Saban is clearly a very talented man and organizer.

    If Saban was overruled and forced to take Culpepper over Brees does anybody imagine he would return to the up the godlike status he has a Bama and indeed the entire SEC…without securing TOTAL control over his roster. Once again then Licht would have to accept being a lapdog IF Saban even allowed Licht to remain. Saban may want his own handpicked GM.

  14. Buccfan37 Says:

    Pass on Saban if he shows any interest. He won’t be recruiting from the best of 4 and 5 star talent he has near first grabs at that flows into Alabama. He won’t walk away from that gravy train of premium talent. Saban as Bucs HC, what a joke. At least I hope so.

    saw this a guy a few times on NFL network and just didn’t like him…the fact that this idiot thinks dominick is a decent GM just affirmed my thinking

  16. satchseven Says:

    unbelievable you guys think you had a team loaded with talent,you need two drafts
