We'll never know how much of a handicap Lovie was under as far as his offenses go and whether the problem was self-induced or if JA had a lot to do with it because he simply failed to obtain enough good offensive players. Lovie is one of those "throwback" coaches who builds a scheme and then does all he can to perfect it with the right players executing it well. He had an almost slavish Vince Lombardi like devotion to running a simple scheme and just out playing the other guy and as far as his defenses go for the most part it worked. Or at least it did against middle of the road competition. The better teams were able to pick it apart though and you're right, he never changed or adapted it to prevent that. The rules so favor offenses now that a successful team needs either an offensive minded HC or a very, very good OC who can teach his system to the players. It also helps to have a Brady or a Manning or a Rodgers to lean on. QBs who can basically put a team on their backs and win games. That' a level Cutler has shown some promise in but he's not there yet and he needs to be. I'm sure Lovie will be successful in TB because he's a good coach and player like playing for him but whether he'll ever win a Super Bowl is IMHO doubtful. He lacks the intensity and killer instinct.
