Rant My Life: Will Chicago Bears Bring Lovie Smith Back in 2013?
It’s amazing how quickly a team’s season can turn around and when it comes to the Chicago Bears–they’re all of a sudden hanging on to their playoff lives after losing four of their last five games. At the moment, the Bears hold the No. 6 seed in the NFC with an 8-5 record, but if they did fall short of the opportunity to play in January–would the team bring Lovie Smith back for the 2013 season?
Smith’s contract is up at the end of the season and the argument can be made it may be time for a change considering the way things have turned out in each of the last two seasons in Chicago. After a 7-3 start last season, late-season injuries forced the Bears to lose five of their final six games to finish 8-8 on the season and this season appears to be a similar case considering they’ve lost four of five after a 7-1 start.
On the bright side, things are much better this year compared to 2011 as Chicago has already matched their win total and controls their own destiny over the final three weeks when it comes to earning the NFC North title or a Wild Card spot. However, if the Bears do fall short of the playoffs once again–it will be a hot topic this offseason when it comes to whether or not the organization should bring Smith back as their head coach for the 2013 season.
Clearly, this team has numerous areas in need of fixing and when these things happen–it’s hard not to put most of the blame on Smith.
