Martz, Lovie, and the enigma that is the Bears

Does Lovie actually run this team? or only part of it?  Why after so many years on the sidelines, does Lovie not have a reliable system for ushering in calls yet?  Play calling?  Has the strategy of "when you find something that works- you keep doing it until they stop it" been considered lately?  The Bears should have run the Bucs right out of Wembly by the 3rd quarter.  But we come out passing...?  What about taking some time off the clock at the end of games?  The Bucs couldn't contain Forte...and we wouldn't have needed DJ to make an interception at the end- as time would have run out.  How much do we hear about having to play smarter?  How about we start by coaching smarter.

Speaking of Forte, Should the Bears "pay the man?"  Of course, and they will.  They are under no rush to do so and why should they be?  He can't walk, so what's the rush?  Who else would get the franchise tag?  Matt should do what he is doing- concentrating on football.  Lance Briggs?  Well, Lance needs to shut up.  I wouldn't say Lance is a more effective Linebacker today than he was on the day he signed his contract, he wasn't forced to do that.  The terms of the contract were written above where he signed.  He isn't even in a contract year.  The fact that comparable LB are making more money today...both he and his agent should have considered that.  Lance is a very good LB, but he is not the play maker Urlacher is.  

Devin Hester is the greatest returner in the history of the NFL, but despite some flashes, he is not a good wide receiver.  I want Devin to do well, but he seems rather mortal on offense.  The Bears should take a flyer on TO.  I can't believe I said it myself, but when that dude is motivated he has proven to be dangerous.  He has a big personality, but what the hell.  He can't be a bigger disappointment than Roy Williams.
