The last person who envisioned the Buccaneers to be 1-5 after six games is Tampa Bay head coach Lovie Smith. On Monday, during his day-after-game press conference, Smith told the media the fans aren’t the only ones disappointed with how the season has started.
“Well a couple of things. I would say first off, I’m disappointed too,” Smith said. “That’s what I would say to them. I agree with the numbers that you threw out (56-0 & 38-0). That is disheartening. But like I would say also, when you’re in a game, you don’t crown anyone the winner of that game during the game. We’re disappointed right now is what I would say. We’re disappointed right now also. But lets let it all play out. And yeah, I’ve said that before, but the game isn’t over yet. That would be my statement. Give us time, we’ll continue to get guys back and there’s a lot of football left to go.
“If we were 6-0 right now, would you start buying your Super Bowl ticket? You have to just hold on a little bit is what I would say. And I don’t listen to talk radio, but I don’t have to alright. I know what’s out there and we’re all disappointed right now. But I’m going to keep going; I’m going to finish. We’re all disappointed what? Right now. That will change though.”

Lovie’s downfall will be his being obstinate about not replacing Tedford and allowing Arroyo to muddle through the season. Very unfair decision to the Bucs’ players, the tam fans. Predict the score this week? Bye-Week 48 Bucs 10.
