I can't but that was never in dispute. All I said is they were never a top 5 offense.
I think this is playoffs or bust for him.
You don't even know where/why this started so I don't think you need to say anything. He said Martz had produced a top 5 offense, and he hadn't. That's the only bone I picked.
If he's canned, I'd like us to get Gruden, Billick or Chip Kelly
Lovie is one of the most unlikeable coaches in the NFL. That being said I thnk he has had his teams play better then their talent level year in and year out. I'm really indifferent about getting rid of him, but I blame personnel more then him for why the Bears have struggled.
I would hate Gruden if he ever coached the Bears. Not because he isn't a good head coach but I can't stand how he loves every single thing that happens during a MNF game. His mind is always blown by something he has never seen in 20 years
Just by the fans because he never looses his composure and doesnt show any type of emotion other then a slight smile or he tenses his lips when hes pissed off. Players and other coaches have a TON of respect for him, not only as a coach but as a man. I honestly think a new coach will only set us back further. Like you said, its our personel. Our number one weakness is HORRIBLE Offensive line play. If you look back at the bears history. We had a great offensive line, Angelo dismantled it, tried to make a few tweaks to hold it together for a couple years. But each draft, year in and year out, angelo put the Offensive line at the bottom of his priority, sorry to say it but weve been set back years. Hopefully our new GM will right the ship in a year or two. Right now I believe Lovie and even Mike Tice are squeezing as much as they can from what theyve got.
I wouldnt want Gruden here. Im kinda tired of the cover 2 defense.
Harbaugh would have been ideal but oh well. Id like to possibly see a 3-4 defensive minded coach.
I don't think we will see a 3-4 scheme here and during the hiring process, Ted Phillips said as much, iirc.
If we lose Lovie and the staff, we more the likely lose the Tampa 2 Defense. Our whole Defense is build around the Tampa 2 do we have the player to move now to a new Defense of game.
