Sure Lovie wants last laugh. He just won’t say it

in general, Tampa Bay Bucs

When Thor was thrown out of Asgard, it mattered.

All those years that Napoleon spent on Elba, it mattered.

When Lance Armstrong had his bike taken away from him, it mattered.

So, yeah, if you want to guess, Sunday probably means a lot to Lovie Smith. Of course it does. How could it not?

Time was, he was in charge of the sideline in Chicago. And then he was not.

Smith won more than 10 games four times in his nine years in Chicago, including a trip to the Super Bowl in 2006. A man doesn't spend that much time on one sideline without missing it when it's gone. He doesn't turn out the lights without thinking of a lot of moments along the way.

I agree, if the Tampa team that showed up last week against the Redskins plays today, we will defeat Chicago.
But, if we can’t get pressure on Jay Cutler, he has 2 great receivers that can tear us up.
This is sort of a “must win” game for Chicago today, because of both Detroit and Green Bay.
I would love to see us come away with the win today, because it will really send Chicago into a tizzy.
