Another poor choice in this offseason. WAY overrated as a defensive coordinator!




LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Lovie Smith was hired as Chicago Bears' head coach, the team said Wednesday.


Smith, the Rams' defensive coordinator, will get a four-year deal, ESPN.com's John Clayton reports.


Smith and Steelers offensive line coach Russ Grimm were the two finalists for the job. Smith replaces Dick Jauron, who was fired Dec. 29 after four losing seasons in five years.

Let's hope this means Grimm comes back home to DC now.



Please God...

I dunno. Lovie did say that he was going to bring in an offensive coordinator to make a more run based Rams system. He apparently has someone already in mind but they don't have any of the personnel in place for that system. They just drafted Grossman a year ago as the QB of the future. What if he doesn't fit the new system?

Poor Jim Fassel ... I thought he was the top guy on a few lists and now it appears as if he's not gonna get anything (this season anyway).

Well, would you rather had him or the other finalist, Russ Grimm? I'd take Smith any day.

As a Packer fan, this makes me smile. Defense wasn't really Chicago's problem last year. You've got a young QB with big upside potential, who could use a little developmental guidance a'la Holmgren-Favre. You've got nothing else going for you on offense...so you bring in a big defensive guy.

After further review...Da Bears still suck! :-)

I believe the Oakland Raiders still haven't hired a new head coach. I'm not sure I'd wish that job on anyone though.

It wouildnt suprise me if they just kept no head coach in Oakland, and let the offensive coordinator make all the decisions, and the defensive coordinator make all the defensive decisions. I doubt anybody wants to be coach of a team filled with retiring players and malcontents.

Lovie Smith is now trying to win over Bears fans by promising wins over the hated Packers.

He's sounding more like a politician than a head coach. Maybe he should make some improvements to the roster (::cough::QB::cough::) before making any promises.




You really SHOULD think about going back to your old Yankees cap, yo!

About the only thing they could have done after the Saban fiasco that would have saved face would have been somehow coaxing Jimmy Johnson out of retirement. Though if they wanted a defensive mind they could have just gotten Singletary and given Chicago a great retro-80's vibe between him and Ozzie Guillen running the White Sox.

All I know is the coaching search had me so unhappy at one point I said with a straight face "Maybe they could bring Ditka back." and I think I meant it.
