    IF koetter gets the job, hopefully he doesn’t bring smith in. Last i knew falcons defense was whack amd thats why they decided to go with the coach they have now! I say we bring raheem back! I liked his style of aggressive defense! Go bucs! I thought lovie would have gotten a pass until he decided to devote a draft to defense at least. I mean everyone is praising our OC but we fail to remember that we scored all of about ten points in our last few games on average. Lovie is gone so let’s move forward and go bucs! Uuugh

    You got screwed Lovie, I can’t see anyone wanting to coach this team, just to get fired in 2 years. The Glazier “BOY’S” don’t know what the F— they are doing, it takes time to fix all of their mess up’s, over the past years. They need to sell the team, and stick to soccer, we could only be so lucky!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Lovie still gets his yearly salary for three years. How many people have that kind of deal. I think Lovie should not except the money as he was awful and didn’t earn it. Now that would be a real honest person.

    It’s been nice being a Season Ticket holder, but that comes to an end the day Koetter gets a promotion.

      Still, he makes a point. If any of us gets fired from our job will we get our pay rate for the next two years as a thank u. Horse is right, if u don’t earn it, you don’t deserve it.

        I already presented my request to be terminated and still be paid handsomely. Turned down. Sigh.

    drdneast; I think two years ended up being enough for me. When we were 4-6 I had seen enough; then we went 6-6, so I started to slide back on that thought; then we lost the next 4 games and I was convinced enough was enough. then after thinking about it overnight, I decided to give Lovie the next year. Quite frankly drdneast, “my gut feeling” was correct back when we were 4-6; I wished I had stayed with my gut feelings like I had done with Schiano. I have trust in GM Licht. I believe he will get this right. I look forward to a very exciting 2016. I love and support the Bucs; have since 1976 and will continue to do so. Go Bucs!

    This list is exactly the group I would have shown the exit.
