    Fi-nal-ly!!

    They should have never hired him in the first place. There are a lot of HC gigs open right now, looks like some colleges are going to be getting a few calls. Heard Lovie Smith bounced around already. Thoughts Bucs fans?

    Nick Saban.
    Offer him 10 million a year and force the gumps to match it.

    McKay as GM and Smith as HC would be fine with me. Smith is a good coach. He may not be good enough to put the Bucs in the Super Bowl but he can get them a lot closer than they are right now. McKay seemed to do a good job when he was here except that IIRC he left the team in bad cap shape.

    That's the last thing TB will do.

    Satan is sitting and waiting another call from Jerry. It will probably be one year from today when its made.

    Freeman got two coaches fired not counting the Vikes coach.

    They needed one full season without him as the rest of the team isnt far off from winning.

    Necessary move by the Bucs. They have some cap space, a solid Dline, a star at linebacker, and two quality corners on defense. Stud RB and some decent WRs. The jury is still out on Glennon, but he has shown flashes. Was Lovie Smith a position coach or coordinator this year? According to one writer, the list of candidates includes Adam Gase, Mike Zimmer, Darrell Bevell, Kevin Sumlin, Bill O’Brien.

    I'd consider counting Frazier among them. The decision to sign Freeman was just strange. They started him one game, then benched him under the guise of an "injury," basically admitting that the experiment failed. The QB situation in Minnesota was a big part of the reason Frazier lost his job.

    Isn't it obligatory to throw in Jon Gruden's name for any coaching vacancy????

    I actually thought the Schiano hire made some sense when they planned to develop a young team, but it was downhill once they started inking established vets who didn't need his prodding. Not sure which direction they go next. There is a lot of talent, especially on the defensive side of the ball, but they need someone who can make a quick, firm evaluation on Glennon. They also need someone who can establish an identity on one side of the ball or the other.

    On behalf of Jon Gruden, may I state the Glaziers will first have to kiss his ass at the intersection of Dale Mabry and Kennedy during the height of rush hour.

    It will be between Schiano and Golden for the Penn State job if O'brien bolts to take the Houston NFL job.

    Most here are resigned to losing O'Brien. This isn't over money, its about career.

    O'Brien? Hardly. He did a great job with the Pats when they had to retool everything with the loss of Moss, Washington, Branch again, etc., plus they had zero run game. He developed a lot of their tight end stuff around Gronk/Hernandez and he also installed a lot of their tempo stuff. I like him. As a matter of fact, he was the guy I wanted when Tampa hired Schiano.

    O'Brien is the exception. What I really mean to say is that the NFL seems to have the same tired old coaches vying for the HC jobs year in and year out. They recycle too much.
