Mark Cook from Pewter Report joined Marc and Greg Linnelli for his weekly hit Friday at 4:20pm to help us preview Lovie Smith’s return to Chicago.

Lovie Smith said they are still in the mix in the NFC South. Cook said if they have a chance then they have to preach it. Realistically they aren’t in it but Cook said you have to keep the team motivated.

Cook said he can see the Bucs making a run if they continue to get pressure up front.

Cook said he expects Lavonte David to play this weekend. He’ll have to be really hurt not to.
