Chicago Bears Finally Pull Plug On Lovie Smith Era
It was not the year that Chicago Bears fans had hoped for. The team started 7-1 and looked in prime position to coast into the playoffs. Instead, the team stumbled down the stretch and missed some January football. This means that Lovie Smith ended up paying with his job.
#Bears have fired coach Lovie Smith, I’m told #BlackMonday
This is a bit shocking but it is not that shocking. The Bears have failed down the stretch the last two years and it is unacceptable to finish the way they did. Lovie simply was not getting it done anymore. His coaching staffs were not up to the task and that all falls back on him. He couldn’t hide behind them any longer.
It will be interesting to see how this team moves forward. They would probably be better off trying to get an offensive mind into the fold. That way, the team will not be so predictable. The defense has the talent, but the offense needs more molding. An offensive mind would be the to get this team back on the winning track.
This Black Monday has hit a lot of teams. The Bears have may have been one that looked like the coaches were safe, but you need to demand success and accountability in this game. Smith and company simply couldn’t perform up their task. It was finally time to move in a different direction. Can’t blame the Bears for trying to get better now and in the future.
