I Don't Love You Lovie

Mandatory Credit: Kirby Lee/Image of Sport-USA TODAY SportsDoesn't he look confused? I feel like every picture I see of Lovie Smith he has this look like he is confused, maybe even mystified by what has just happened. Based on the last few games by these Bears, he should be confused. Or upset. Or shocked. But, he's not. He's calm, believes in his team, "his guys", and thinks things are going great.

Is it possible he doesn't remember last year's demise? Absolute and utter collapse? Now, he did lose his starting quarterback, linebacker ANd running back last year and this year, lets see...quarterback is playing post concussion, sore neck and sprained MCL, kicker out, offensive line is gone, oh right, except for JWebb Nation and no one can seem to catch a damn ball except for Brandon Marshall. If it hits Devin Hesters hand and bounces out one more time-oh wait. I keep forgetting. Lovie is a huge proponent of Devin Hester. Thinks he is "all that AND a bag of chips". Oh right, and then there's Kellen Davis-a huge tight end who can't seem to stay upright, even when he doesn't have the ball. And then we have Brian Urlacher who is out at least until the playoffs with a bad knee. Again.

Yes, no doubt in my mind. Lovie has blocked this out of his mind. They say Lovie is a "players coach". I'm glad he is somebody's kind of coach. Because I am ready to see him and all those he brought into the Bears organization with him leave. And don't let the door hit you on the way out. He has had his chance. This year, in my mind, was a chance for Lovie to prove to me, and all the other nonbelievers that Lovie was the real deal-a coach who could take a decent team and watch them step up and win. This past week against the Vikings, it looked like a 14 point lead by the Vikings was not only an insurmountable lead, but one that was a virtual impossibility for the Bears. For Lovie.

It's enough Lovie. Time to say your good-byes. Pack your bags, say the right things and walk away. Don't look back. Not loving you, Lovie. Not at all. You are that guest at the party that has stayed a bit too long, and we weren't all that excited you were coming in the first place. Buh Bye.

Wow, harsh article ... but results have consequences ... they are playing out! Can't ferociously disagree.

But his unbelievable ability to show no confidence on offense AT ALL is an embarassment. There are NO plays that work outside of Cutler to Marshall. nothing. And don't think Lovie had no say on his O-Line. Can't wait till he is OUT!

How about some blame on the front office for not getting Cutler a line? How about some blame on the QB for never being clutch? Lovie isn't absolved in this situation, and should another collapse occur where they miss the playoffs, he probably shouldn't survive. It's too easy to blame the head coach. Lovie has nothing to do with the injuries, drops or Cutler air mailing passes that turn into pick 6's down 14-7 with a chance to tie.
