Smith confident he has Buccaneers on the rebound

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) Lovie Smith spent a year away from the NFL preparing for the challenge he faces in trying to transform the struggling Tampa Bay Buccaneers into winners.

The Bucs have missed the playoffs the past six seasons. However, the former Chicago Bears coach is confident he has the team headed in the right direction after eight months of overhauling the roster and implementing other changes aimed at making the franchise relevant again.

He talks about winning games with a ball-hawking defense that not only creates opportunities for an efficient offense but scores points in bunches, too - much the way the Bucs did in the late 1990s, when Smith was an assistant in Tampa Bay under Tony Dungy.
