The Weekend Desk Report

"He might never say so publicly, but in many ways Chicago is still home for Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith," Roy Cummings writes for the Tampa Bay Tribune.

"His wife, MaryAnne, a native of nearby Des Plaines, grew up here; he raised his children here; shoot, he still owns a house here.

"That house is up now for sale, but so much more of what tied Smith to Chicago for 10 years could never be sold."

Yeah, whatever.

Lovie Smith was a bore, and he created a toxic environment at Halas Hall that held fans (and the media) in disdain. The residue of that culture remains, which Marc Trestman is learning.

Forget the Packers; beat Lovie!
