Friday, 6 a.m.

On the afternoon of October 25, no one thought Dirk Koetter was the solution to the Bucs' problems.

The Bucs had just had a meltdown against the Washington Redskins. The offense, which had come so far under Koetter, had blown a late first-and-goal situation from the five that could have iced the game. Tampa Bay had committed 16 penalties for 142 yards, a familiar dirge.

That day, no one was considering battlefield promotions.

In the case of Koetter, however, there was almost more to believe in than with head coach Lovie Smith, which is why Smith is out and Koetter is being considered by the Tampa Bay Bucs. Under Koetter, the offense seemed to be going somewhere. Under Smith, the defense seemed forever lost.
