    Default Lions should hire Lovie Smith




    He's a great coach and it would be a logical fit considering his experience within the division.

    Lovie is a product of Ulacher/Briggs. His offense has never looked good.

    He's never had a combination like Stafford/Megatron to work with.

    Lovie would be great....as long as you don't let him touch the offense.

    2nd half season collapses. Lovie would fit right in...

    Bears will aggressively pursue Cowher

    If Cutler could have stayed healthy, Smith probably would have went to another Super Bowl a couple of seasons ago and they would have made the playoffs last season.

    What you really mean is if Chicago had any resemblance of an offensive line, Smith probably would have went to another Super Bowl a couple of seasons ago and they would have made the playoffs last season.

    Lovie's a good coach, but much like Schwartz, he is awful against good teams. I'm not sure his exact record, but its pretty abysmal. He dominates crap teams and that's good, but I think we should shoot higher if we get a new coach.

    Lovie IS the DC. Hire Lovie, draft Te'o, Bears defense 2.0.

    Not true at all. His reputation as a defensive coordinator was bright long before he made it to Chicago.

    I love this idea. I wish you were GM and/or owner of the Lions.

    If that was the case we would have Sanchez and not Stafford under center.

    Dominating crap teams would be a giant step forward for the Lions.

    Is Lovie a republican and/or bangin' a white chick? We need to make sure he's one of Rob Parker's people.

    Sure, I agree, but I feel like if we are going to go out and get a new coach, we should shoot higher.

    I think Lovie Smith would be a home run at this point in the progression/regression of the Lions. Sorry, but I think to some extent, many here hold the Lions in much higher regard than we should because of one decent year in the last 13 seasons. The Lions aren't going to get some up-and-coming superstar coach or even an established veteran coach any time in the near future, IMO. What highly touted coach is going to want to come to the ownership and personality mess that is the Lions?

    In the end, I wouldn't be terribly upset about it. Especially since he basically has a built in offense better than he ever had in Chicago.

    Lovie lives and dies on the Tampon-Two defense which is outmoded.

    Pass.

    Yah that Bears D looked terrible this year, definitely not physical though, so they deserve the tampon label. WTF?

    The Bears defense was in the top 10 of just about every team defensive stat.

    Bears didn't play a ton of tampa two this season.

    Briggs? So you are essentially saying that Lovie is the product of Urlacher.....and Urlacher only then.


    Name the 2nd most dominant defensive player on the Bears over the past 10 years?

    My list is as follows.....Mike Brown, Lance Briggs, Charles Tillman, Julius Peppers. That is not an impressive list.


    The Bears defense has been smoke and mirrors for 10 years now.....except you can't really consider it smoke and mirrors when the Bears have done it for 10 years.
