When Lovie was hired there was a sense of relief for us Bucs fans that the guy leading the team has seen success in the league before and knows what it takes to win. Now that Lovie has been outcoached in back to back games, most of us Bucs fans are frustrated, but also confused as Lovie has always been a highly respected personality in Tampa.
This game against Rams could have easily been won despite our defense making their 3rd stringer look like a probowler. Lovie's ultra-conservative ways just killed any chance our team had. If it was Sean Payton, Chip Kelly or even a defensive minded Riverboat Ron, Bucs could have had 11 more points on the board. A run play on 3rd and 7 in 4th qtr when McCown at that point had only 3 incompletions /facepalm. We cannot stop anyone on defense and yet Lovie chooses to play conservative offense as if we have the dominant 90s defense. Right now we are a pathetic team. As usual, somewhat talented on paper, underachieving in reality.
