Can the veteran coach find a large pick-me-up in the Big Easy? He better hope so.

Or batten down the hatches.

Three days later, it’s hard to believe the Bucs allowed the Tennessee Titans to turn Raymond James Stadium into their personal playground, minus the monkey bars at midfield. Three days later, it’s hard to believe the Bucs allowed Marcus Mariota to throw for those four

Unfortunately St. Lovie has not corrected a damn thing since he got here. The Buccaneers are in total disarry and he stands there in arrogance and wants fans to calm down? One game? The man is 2-15 and 0-9 at HOME!!
And he tells the media how to do it’s job. Pathetic.
IMO he should have been fired half way through LAST season when it was obvious his tactics and demeanor that might have worked in 1997 do not now.
But I guess fans will have to suffer through another piss poor season before the Glazer boys admit they made another mistake and hire a Preisent of football operations who knows somwthing about FOOTBALL in 2015. They and St. Lovie most certainly do NOT!!!!!~
