There's so much that goes both ways but it would almost be too conservative of a move to hold onto Lovie at this point because this was a team that very well could have made a run, a few times - at least, generally speaking of the positions they've found themselves in but time and time-out our teams never got better as the season went along. Who's to blame? The players... well, we have a top defense and our three key-pieces on offense (anyone who thinks Cutler, Forte and Marshall aren't strong-suits to this team should open their eyes). Bottom line, we should be winning. Far too many times I've held out hope that we come out of halftime in a lot of games and look better when we're getting beat in areas of the game and it doesn't happen. We had FIVE pro bowlers and are sitting at home watching better coached teams go forward?

At this point, it's probably time to move on but I can't help but feel that a lot of Bears fans will be split because you'll see Lovie turn a team like the Browns or the Bills into an overachieving squad of 10-6 or 11-5 and folks will buy into the media's nonsensical drama about the Bears making the wrong decision. Actually the media is not criticizing this decision at all and had been calling for it for weeks. And you do not have to worry about Smith turning some terrible team into a winner. It ain't going to happen. But his failure will just be blamed on everyone else. Heck, you can already see the media trying to make a story out of it with the Devin Huster whinings...err, rumblings - rather. The same guys who are making a story about how Tim Tebow would fix the New York Jets problems will likely target us as idiots for letting Lovie go; all I ask is don't buy into it so quickly.

Lets see for ourselves.

So, in short... Please, just remain patient. I think Phil Emery knows what he's doing and it seems he has a plan. I remember a similar man named Stan Bowman came in for the Chicago Blackhawks, lets hope a similar trend continues (pointless analogy, I know but you honestly never know).

Lets give this a shot. For two years we've heard that we're ALMOST Super Bowl contenders - maybe the stars align and we finally find the coach that gets the most out of this team but for now, we wait.

It's going to be a long and interesting off-season.
I will bet anyone that our next coach wins more games than Smith (IF he gets another job which I doubt) next year.
This is why you have no football knowledge. before the body was even cold 4 of the 6 other openings contacted Smith. He's basically getting to pick his own spot.



Well he isn't going to the Chiefs, Bills and at least one of the Browns/Eagles; so he really isn't picking his own spot.
It is possible that he gets his choice of the team to be the DC for but he won't be offered a HC job. His reputation is puffed up by the national media, at least the local boys got off the bandwagon and know he had to go.

Lovie definitely will get a job lol.

Well he didn't impress Buffalo enough... They just came to an agreement with Doug Marrone. San Diego is the only other team that's shown any interest, although I would bet Bruce Arians becomes their next HC. If Mack Brown and Texas had lost their bowl game, Lovie to UT was innevitable IMO. Not sure he gets an opportunity at all this season.
Marrone is a good hire, also could be that Lovie turned them down, we don't really know.


Doubt that. Lovie is probably desperate to get a head coaching job ASAP because the longer he goes without a job the worse his chances will be of finding another head coaching position down the road. I don't mean any disrespect but it could be that teams are just giving Lovie a look because of the Rooney rule.
Soup practically accused me of being a member of the KKK for stating that obvious fact. Because of that he refuses to talk to me being so obviously a bigot and all.
One thing I do know though is that your man crush on Lovie is quite astonishing.
He will never admit he is wrong about it either after stating that he was the greatest coach the Bears ever had.

Its been reported that the job Lovie really wants is the AZ job, he hasn't left AZ since he got there Thurs. MCW also reported that there are at least 3 teams w/ a very strong interest in Lovie, we know about the Bills, we know about the Chargers. If AZ is that 3rd team (their coaching search has been really, really quiet since Thurs) that would definitely explain why Lovie turned down the Bills job if it was offered to him. He also said that Lovie is keeping everything close to the vest w/ 0 leaks until there is a deal in place.
I will wager my house that neither the Chargers nor the Cardinals will hire Smith or even have any real interest in him. Him reviving that Cardinal offense is so laughable even the dumbest family in the NFL would not consider it. And the Chargers have always stressed offense hence Smith would be the LAST guy considered.

It is easy to keep things close when there is nothing there. The Bills only offered Smith a job in your imagination they had no real interest either.
