ABSOLUTELY!
as mentioned in another thread- Smith is rock solid as a coach and was hampered (if not strangled) by the poor decisions of former GM Jerry Angelo who crippled the team when he made the trade for Jay Cutler.  The Bears were playing wack-a-mole because of that deal- need a WR- OK sign Brandon Marshall- uh-oh, need a TE and a new OL!  Uh-oh, smack down the injury prone mole of ageing LB Brian Urlacher!

Great coach. However, I would not want him in any capacity influencing the offensive side of the ball.

You won't be giving up 250 yards on the ground or 50 points a game.....but he needs help with offensive coaching....

Yes, because after three years we need to go back to Dick Jauron's "Tampa-2" 4-3.  It's not the same 4-3 we have now, folks.

You could do a lot worse than Lovie Smith as HC:

Just maybe we can find a coach that can alter his system to what we have rather than having to blow up the entire organization to fit what is in his play book. Wouldn't that be refreshing?

Charlie Casserly and Ian Rappaport think Buffalo would be a good place for Lovie:

Like I said earlier/elsewhere, I'd be in favor of hiring Lovie contingent on who he can install as his offensive coordinator.

I'd personally love if he came here and brought Norv Turner as his OC.

frankly, its not that different. and though its his base scheme, its not the only thing he calls all day.

i chuckled a bit when his name came up, but add some linebackers that can play in space and create turnovers and its 6 of one half dozen of the other between lovie and DW scheme wise.

hes one of the first names that popped into my head for a defensive head coach.

terrible head coach but a good enough coordinator that he keeps getting shots!

On the other hand, in some circles it's the only language that's understood.

I want Lovie with the caveat that he is given a well respected OC and Joe D'Alessandris is kept.

@AndrewSiciliano
Lovie Smith should be as coveted and viable a candidate as any of the fired coaches. Give him an OL and he wins quickly.

LOL!

From what I've read, seems the complaint in Chicago is that things just seemed stale or "old".  No thanks.  If that's the feeling he left everyone with in Chicago, I'm sure he'd bring that to Buffalo with him.  No thank you.
