Quote :
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers co-chairman Joel Glazer released a statement Wednesday night, announcing Smith's firing:


"After careful consideration, we informed Lovie that we have decided to make a change. I want to thank Lovie for his hard work and dedication to the Buccaneers during his time here. This decision was difficult on a variety of levels. I am disappointed that we were not more successful these past few seasons, but we are committed to doing what is necessary to give our fans the winning team they deserve. As we move forward, general manager Jason Licht will oversee the process for finding our next head coach."

.....

Stupid

The Bucs have adopted the Browns scheme for perpetual mediocrity

The other teams making a change should jump at Lovie.

So the Bucs also are going to hire a lawyer to head up their front office and an analytics specialist who spent his career in baseball to find football players?

Desperate Browns turn to analytics to make their people decisions

The Browns put a lawyer in charge of football operations and named a baseball analytics expert to a high-level football position.

Only a team whose record is so bad as the Browns’ can these moves be viewed as progressive, intriguing, even fascinating.

The alternative is more misguided coaching and GM hires and criminally negligent player acquisitions.

In other words, why not? Could it get any worse?

Don’t answer that.

Jeff Fisher is lucky he didn't coach in Tampa. He's sucked for what, 5 years with the Rams.

If you look in the dictionary for a definition of mediocrity you find a picture of Jeff Fisher

7 stats that prove how wonderfully average Jeff Fisher's head coaching record is


1. His average season Win-Loss percentage is .509
2. He’s had five .500 (8-8) seasons
3. He’s had seven or eight wins in 10 of his 20 full seasons as an NFL head coach.
4. He’s 5-6 in his 11 playoff games
5. His median career record is 8-8
6. From 2002 to 2005, his teams’ record was 11-5, 12-4, 5-11, 4-12 (32-32)
7. His mustache is reasonably symmetrical


http://ftw.usatoday.com/2016/01/7-stats-that-prove-how-wonderfully-average-jeff-fishers-head-coaching-record-is

But the trend line definitely is down - his last five seasons

2010 Tennessee Titans 6 10 0
2012 St. Louis Rams 7 8 1
2013 St. Louis Rams 7 9 0
2014 St. Louis Rams 6 10 0
2015 St. Louis Rams 7 9

What is saving Fisher is the Rams owner is not taking any coaching actions until he gets the move to LA straightened out

I think he's banking on the fact that he's gone through a few below .500 seasons, therefore the above .500 seasons are sure to come, along with competing for a SB here and there
