The Tampa Bay Buccaneers fired Lovie Smith today, in a move the Bucs players certainly didn't see coming. Several players took to Twitter to express their shock and disbelief.

Lavonte David in particular was surprised, and not in a good way.
The players don't get a say or a consultation in who gets fired or not, though. If you asked some former players, they would have told the Glazers to pull the trigger immediately, apparently.
No surprise to me!!— Tim Jennings (@HennOrJenn26) January 7, 2016
Oh Twitter, your drama never ceases to amuse.
