Let me say, this all of us as well as all of the media even my esteemed SB Nation blogger-in-arms, Stampede Blue has taken shots at Chicago brass for short changing Coach Lovie Smith. While I do believe the Bears are because history seems to repeat itself, but may I for one moment throw out something that nobody seems to be mentioning? What is Smith asking? Let's say the Bears for example did only offer 3.5 per year, but now let's say Smith and his agent asked for 7.5-8 now they are way apart and it isn't all the Bears being cheap skates.
That said I don't care, I want my coach. Something I didn't expect to find in the article that I linked to in the previous post was this note on the Bears and Smith contract talks.
At least it is progress.
