    I’ve NEVER been as pessimistic on a HC as I am with Smith. Seen absolutely NOTHING to make me think he is competent for this job.

    Fire all the people who have coach in front of their name. we were better coached last year and that was bad.

    Just a reminder to all…..Saint Tony started 1-8 too. The cornerstones of the D were on the roster. HOF’ers Brooks & Sapp, Hardy, Lynch. D must have players and the discipline to execute the system. As for the O, more than 17 points PLZ. Penalties that on the coaches. Cut the punter NOW.

    This is an undisciplined team and that’s a reflection on Coach Smith. They are walking all over him like they did with Morris.

    Players are pressing more and more which can lead to more penalties. A mysterious “hand to the face” penalty called on the opposite side of the field is called on the Bucs giving the Falcons a first down; but the same penalty flag is picked up when the Falcons commit the same infraction. Makes you wonder.

    Obviously the bogus call against Banks was BS, but the penalties don’t really both me anymore. Penalties are up all across the league so I don’t know what’s a good or bad amount anymore. If we only got 2 penalties in a game that might sound good, but if they were both in game critical situations at the end of the game that makes all the difference. Just don’t get penalties when the game is on the line and I’m fine.
