It's Lovie's Turn Now

It's Lovie's Turn To Step It Up

JAN 1, 2012; Minneapolis, MN, USA;  Chicago Bears head coach Lovie Smith during a time out in the first quarter against Minnesota Vikings at Mall of America Field.  The Bears defeated the Vikings 17-13.  Mandatory Credit: Marilyn Indahl-US PRESSWIREIt's almost time to start playing. Cutler is ready. Forte is signed. Urlacher and Briggs should be healthy and ready to go. Brandon Marshall is here! The big guns for the Chicago Bears are ready for a big season. And it SHOULD be a big season for the Bears. But I can't commit to them. Not yet.

This happens every year. Looks like they are going to be fielding a good team, a competitive team. A team that should make some noise during the season. But I hold back my hope and excitement because I have been a Bears fan too long. I still remember ALL the words to the Superbowl Shuffle. I, like many others, still live back in 1986 and the glory days of the Bears, with Walter, the Fridge, and Jim McMahon. And while the Bears have shown glimpses of success for the past almost thirty years,  their Superbowl appearance a few years back was painful.

But with a Pro Bowl caliber quarterback, a solid defense, a good corps of running backs, a spectacular wide receiver, it is time. It is time for Lovie Smith to show that he has what it takes to get the Bears over the edge of mediocrity. It is time for the Bears to be great. To blow out the teams that stink, win the close games, be strategic but not stupid.

Now, Lovie may be a good coach. I am not a believer. Word is Smith is a "player's coach". Thats all well and good if it ends in success. And from what I have seen, Smith is quick with excuses. Injuries, broken plays, communication breakdowns. Always seems to be something. I have never seen the attraction to him as a coach.

I guess when I still look at Ditka as my football coach of choice, I'm not sure who could stand strongly next to him. But I do know that this year, all the pieces look to be in place. The offensive line is the one area that remains a bit tenuous but I have confidence that Mike Tice will figure out a way to give Cutler time to do what he does best-pass the ball, hopefully to Brandon Marshall.

But, does Lovie Smith have what it takes to really coach a good team? I have my doubts. But I will be watching. Not hopeful or committed but watching. I hope he doesn't take us for a ride-I want to believe. I do. But Smith just hasn't shown me that he has what it takes to take the Bears all the way. I'm rooting for them, hoping I'm proven wrong. But I have my doubts.

Well chick17, you are almost right. I still don`t have faith in Jay. He has thown too many interceptions to suit me, but he did look good when it counted last year other than, that crazy move when he got hurt.
That being said, I liked Iron Mike, he was good for that time, but Lovie has a different style. He does not have to yell and stomp around the sideline to make his point. Then again look at what mgmt did to Lance a few years ago. The very same thing they did to Matt this year. It was was crazy. We are lucky he stuck it out and didn`t go anywhere else. Mgmt need to stop being a Jerry Jones or an Al Davis and stay in the owners box and let the man do his job.
Now there is a good quarterback available out there, and he is so close he can bite you on the nose. And he is being ignored by all. As a matter of fact, he is a home grown Chicag guy. Donovan McNabb is still got good years in him. Why don`t mgmt do something productive and give him a call ?

In fact, based on what the 'experts' say, the Bears have played above expectations. They were a playoff team last year until the injuries ended their season. The year after the Super Bowl everyone got hurt within the first few weeks.

Lovie is far from perfect, but he is more than capable of leading this team back to the Super Bowl. It's time for the players to execute and get it done. They need to run the football and limit Cutler's mistakes. All that was happening during the 5-game win streak last year. They need to pick up where they left off prior to the injuries. I know they can do it.

Totally agree with your comments. The disaster that occurred after Cutler & Forte went down made me question every decision Lovie had ever made. Bears looked like a HS team. Was embarassing. Hoping they can get it together this year!
