We like to throw plaques at the winners.

We like to call them geniuses.

We shake their hands, and we pat their backs, and we tell them that we knew how smart they were all along. We hold luncheons in their honor. Yeah, we treat our coaches of the year as if they were conquering generals coming home to confetti.

But what about the other guys?

What about the worst coaches in the league?

What about the coveted Lovie Award?

Look, I endorsed Lovie Smith, and I think that, eventually, he'll get it right. I think the defense, still under-talented, has shown a lot of growth. And, tor goodness sakes, the Bucs have fired enough coaches in recent seasons with Jon Gruden, Raheem Morris and Greg Schiano. You can't keep changing everything every year.

On the other hand, man, was this a stinker of a year. Who had a worse year than Lovie?

Thanks Jim. Tell your friends. And believing in the Bucs is always difficult.

I’d like to defend Lovie, but I can’t…and I’m afraid the same team would win the Worst GM of the year, too…
