In the NFL, cutting your quarterback means never having to say you're sorry.

With Lovie Smith, however, it is implied.

When the Bucs gave up on their failure with Josh McCown this week, Lovie Smith made an admission that he was wrong. He was wrong when he signed McCown. He was wrong when he named him the starter. He was wrong coming down the stretch when he didn't want a further look at Mike Glennon.

Being a Bucs fan, I wish lovie well, but how many mistakes can he afford before he too joins Tony and others on NFL pre game shows?

It was good that Lovie admitted his mistake, but mistakes by a head coach does more to lose games and fans than anything else. Winston is probably the better choice, for the BUCS, but only if he passed all the background checks, and understands that his immaturity stops when he signs his contract, and that he is properly mentored, and has a clear understanding of what is expected of him.
