Lovie Smith obviously needs to be fired. Just look at the Bears performance today. Getting shellacked by the Cardinals is completely unacceptable, and it is completely Lovie Smith's fault. It has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that Kurt Warner, Larry Fitzgerald and co. from one of the most dangerous offenses in the NFL. And it's also obviously Smith's fault that our highest-paid d-lineman decided to get himself ejected by punching another player in the face. It's also Smith's fault that two of our starting linebackers, including the longtime face of our franchise ended up with season-ending injuries. Ditto for the fact that half of our starting secondary had to leave the game early due to injuries.
Oh, and before I forget, Jerry Angelo is an idiot too. What was he thinking giving so much money to guys like Harris, Urlacher, and Vasher? He should have foreseen that they would have devastating injuries/significantly decline. He obviously should have cut those guys loose right in the middle of their prime. That's what every Bears fan I know was suggesting 2-3 years ago. And Orlando Pace? C'mon, signing a 7-time pro-bowler is obviously a terrible idea. And I can't begin to start on Angelo's failure to upgrade the receiving core. TO, Marvin Harrison, and Matt Jones were all out there, and we didn't sign a single one of those elite receivers. With those guys, we'd be beating Arizona for sure. And then of course, there's the Cutler trade. What was Angelo thinking trading proven winner in Kyle Orton for a bum with a losing record (Cutler)? If we'd kept Orton, we'd be 6-1 right now, obviously.
