You know I love how people are dogging the bucs for firing Lovie. Unless you are a bucs fan and know what what going on, on why they dumped him then just shut up. Lovie Smith ran an outdated defense scheme, sucked at making halftime adjustments, and did not get on to players for committing flags. They were one of the worst flaged teams, and he did not do crap about it. The coach the bucs have now is the reason for this teams success and improvement, not Lovie. He is the reason Jamies had a good year and why the offense is 5th ranked. If the bucs had lost Koetter which is why they fired Lovie, because they were afraid of losing him. If they had lost Koetter. Then the team would of sucked again. Jameis would of digressed. You should know what you are talking before you sputter moronic nonsense.

The Playoff Teams:
New York Giants (14-6) - The Eli Manning Priceless Pep Talk of the Week: "Oh my God we won the Super Bowl this is awesome my dad looked at me and winked at me I'm not sure if he was gonna slap me upside the head again like he did before but he just said "good job" and then my mom said she's going to make brownies tonight and my brother said he's going to let me come drinking with his friends for the first time ever and my older brother ah who cares about him and Michael Strahan won his first Super Bowl and asked me out on a date and I said no and Rachel Nichols is hot and she was interviewing me and I was excited not because I won the Super Bowl but because she is hot and then I felt..." That was Eli Manning, and he hopes his Priceless Pep Talk helped you!
New England Patriots (18-1) - Whether the Patriots make it back to the Super Bowl depends on the mentality they have this offseason. If Bill Belichick realizes that he needs tons of help at linebacker and defensive back, and spends money like he did last summer, New England will play in Super Bowl XLIII. However, if the Patriots are cocky and think that the only reasons they lost the big game were Tom Brady's injury and pure luck on David Tyree's part, they have no shot at 19-0 or their fourth Super Bowl this decade. Instead, they'll be subjected to the Super Bowl Loser Curse, becoming the eighth consecutive team to fail to go deep into the playoffs after going down in the previous Super Bowl.
