Love for lovie? Chicago axed coach

Lovie is okay, like a poor mans Fox. He can succeed in the right situation- we are not the right situation. To pull a bad franchise out of the basement you need more than average.

Lovie waited way too long to create an offense, when he got the three skill positions their OL was junk.

Lovie is a very good D coach, but needs to figure out that offense is still needed to win.

Lovie Smith as DC for me all day.

Turner as OC and Chico stays as HC, I'm fine.

rivera leaving chicago was lovie's idea because rivera wasn't lovie's choice for a DC and the first opportunity he had to move on from rivera he took it.

the problem, aside from lovie wanting someone else, was that the two defensive styles were very different. rivera comes from the jim johnson 4-3 (a very aggressive/attack defense) and lovie comes from the dungy tampa 2 system...which is a bend/don't break, soft cover defense whose goal was to prevent the big play.

their styles didn't mesh.

and then mike martz before that?

not trusting at all his taste in OCs.

I know that, just wishful thinking and due to having connections between them. I'd take Lovie and Norv over Sean and Chud anyday.

i'd be surprised if he doesn't land a HC gig somewhere, but i'd be shocked if it was here.

DC? maybe so, but i'm not even convinced mcdermott isn't the answer.
