This really is an outstanding pick up for you guys…not only because he will make your team better on the field but because he will completely change the culture in your locker room…guys will love playing for Lovie Smith and that will bring the best out of them…your D just became instant top 10 and as good as guys like McCoy & David already are they just got 10% better…

If…and I’m sorry to say it’s a big if…he can find an OC you guys will have a really good team…

One other thing…pray to whoever you pray too that Jerry Angelo isn’t brought in as your GM Laughing

What time is the introductory presser today? I want to make sure I catch it.

Lovie Smith wrote:
I took this job with 3 goals in mind
#1 We want to beat the Carolina Panthers
#2 We want to win the division
#3 We want to win the SuperBowl

Those are our goals, and I am excited to get to work in 10 minutes towards achieving those goals.

http://www.bucsnation.com/2014/1/1/5265018/on-lovie-smith-leslie-frazier-darrelle-revis-and-cover-2

Quote:
Leslie Frazier and Lovie Smith run a Tampa 2 defense, which means they only ever call defenses with two deep safeties and a soft zone underneath. That is a bunch of nonsense. If you actually ventured a look at Leslie Frazier's and Lovie Smith's defenses over the past years, the latter being run by Rod Marinelli who's now in Dallas, you won't see Tampa 2 as more than an occasional call. On passing downs especially, you'll see predominantly single-high safety looks with a mix of Cover 1 Zone, Cover 1 Man and Cover 3 calls, as well as a variety of blitzes.

No one in the NFL plays Tampa 2 or Cover 2 zone on a majority of snaps anymore. Not Lovie Smith, nor Leslie Frazier, nor Rod Marinelli. Not even Monte Kiffin did that. They may be Tony Dungy disciples, but they have long since evolved with the times. Every single NFL team has Cover 2 zone and Tampa 2 plays in its playbook, however, and they most often show up as the base defense in two-minute drills, and on long-yardage plays. You'll see some of it from Lovie Smith and Leslie Frazier (if hired). But it won't be the totality or even the majority of their defense.

This also has implications for Darrelle Revis. Over the past few days I've seen some suggestions that he would be cut, because the Bucs are moving to a zone scheme and that means Revis is useless and overpaid. While that would be true (kind of) if the Bucs were moving to a zone scheme, that's not actually what they're doing. Lovie Smith used Charles Tillman and Tim Jennings extensively in man coverage, and to great effect on Calvin Johnson. He'll have no problem using Revis in a similar way.

If Revis is cut, it won't be because he played poorly. It won't be because he doesn't fit the scheme. It won't be because Lovie Smith won't use him 'right'. It won't be because they need cap space. It will be for one reason, and one reason only: that the Bucs decide that $16 million per year is not the kind of money any cornerback, no matter his skills, should earn.

Congrats on the Lovie hire! Tedford, too. I really wanted Tedford for Bills OC this past season - very creative guy who adapts his strategy to best fit players on team.

It's concerning that it hasn't been officially confirmed. We don't want another Chip Kelly...

The contract has been signed at 4 years $20M. Not sure why Buccaneers.com doesn't have any info yet.

Its more than likely that they want to finalize the staff before releasing press conference information.
