I've made this point already, and I don't think I can actually articulate my thoughts in a meaningful way, but I don't care. Lovie Smith is the worst coach in football at any level and at any position, and we as Bear fans need to seriously consider boycotting this team for every minute he remains on the Chicago sidelines.

Greg Olsen clearly didn't catch that pass in the fourth quarter, it was clear as day to anyone with a functional brain cell in their head. Of course we all knew Smith would challenge the play as we as Bear fans are never ones to underestimate his stupidity.

Or so we thought.

In a seven point game, not only did this worthless clown of an NFL head coach waste a timeout by challenging a play he had no chance of winning, he did so AFTER using a timeout prior to the challenge so as to make sure his team had minimal chance to stop the clock during their potential game-winning drive.

Answer me this: is it possible these are the actions of someone who is even remotely interested in keeping his job? Is it actually within the realm of possibility for a man who just three years ago coached a team to the Super Bowl to be so damn stupid to think he was making the right decision in this instance?


Keep in mind this is a guy who set up the Seahawks for a hail-mary pass in the divisional playoffs by calling a timeout because he thought they'd rather punt to Devin Hester than try a nothing-to-lose hail mary.

This kind of garbage has been going on for the duration of Smith's tenure, it's just less forgivable now because the team isn't good enough to win despite his boobary.

This team CANNOT win with Smith as head coach. In fact, there may only be about two or three teams who could. The Bears are gonna be bad for awhile, but any chances of competing are being withheld for every hour he is the Bears coach.

The fact I haven't heard of his firing as of yet is dissapointing. Maybe Jerry Angelo is waiting to see if he can summon a better explanation for the timeout/pointless challenge than saying "we get off the bus running the football."

Fat chance.
