    We may have been wrong, but when was the last time your team was considered anything but bad?

    Anyways, sucks for the bears because they have a low pick in the draft this year on account of their 10-6 record. If their first pick isn't an o-lineman I'd say they're idiots. Then again they aren't a team known to draft well. Most of their big name players were acquired via trades and FA signing (Cutler, Peppers, Marshall, etc.)
    Remember NEW GM.. Angelo is gone and his bad draft picks. Phil Emery is now the GM and Look at last years Draft. Pretty Solid

    Devin Hester is considering retirement. I don't think he's going to be alone.

    It's the usual dynamic when you have a longstanding head coach who has a winning record, but hasn't managed to win the big games. Fans usually want to push him out the door (if not over a cliff), but players almost always side with the head coach. Maybe in the upcoming days we'll hear differently, but my guess is that Lovie was liked by the majority of his players.

    Yes, this is very well known already and has been for a long time. He was very much a player's coach and tremendously liked by his players. That being said, this change was necessary.

    Is anyone really that surprised by this?

    Sure, the Bears were 10-6, but this is the 5th time in 6 years that they've missed the Playoffs. That gets just about every coach fired in the NFL.

    I have never seen Lovie Smith get mad. He always have that ***** look on his face. I thought of him as a soft HC....with no balls.

    With all these coaches being fired i hope Bevell isn't interviewed since leaving the Vikings he has been a much better OC probably because Childress controlled the Offense.


    Just about that action boss.

    I have my gripes with Lovie, but him not showing emotions doesn't stop the fact his players absolutely loved and respected him. In terms of motivating his players, there are few like Lovie. It's too bad he's a total moron on the offensive side of the ball.

    That's pretty ridiculous.

    I've seen Lovie upset on the sidelines during a game. What I haven't seen are the demonstrative hysterics, cursing, etc., that other coaches engage in when they're upset. It's a personality thing; you can't hold it against him. I can think of a bunch of head coaches that were known for going DEFCON 1 on the sidelines, but it didn't necessarily equate to them being good coaches, good men, or winners.

    Which non-playoff teams can easily/quickly turn it around next season?

    It doesn't matter if he's quiet on the sidelines or runs up and down cursing like a lunatic. You're judged by the teams performance. Missing the playoffs 5 of 6 times since the SB run is not acceptable.

    Dumb and dumber

    Agreed. In the end, it always comes down to competing for Super Bowls. No coach or GM is ever safe...and I think they all know and accept it.
