Alls I know is that this Lovie Smith character got to the Super Bowl with Rex Grossman as his QB.  That is enough to make me optimistic about the hire should it happen.

I wonder if Weeden was slower to pick up his offense than Bradford was?

Just a thought.

Yeah they did.  It was rainy and windy during the game.  The Bears D played 7 yards off the Colt receivers and had front row seats while Manning picked them apart underneath all while a big room full of Bears fans here were screaming at the TV to get the damn CBs up on the receivers at the LOS because no way you're getting beat deep in that weather.  Instead the Bears played not to lose and did.  It was incredibly obvious yet the Bears stuck to their plan and never had a chance.  Only special teams kept them in the game.  You could swear that Jauron was dressed in a Lovie costume on the sideline

Lovie's a great guy but as the Bill next coach,  NO THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Grossman's Pick Six was no help that's for sure.

I'm not saying I don't see some big faults with the guy, but using Peyton Manning picking apart a defense as an example...well...let's just say there's a lot of examples of that out there.

This means he is Lovies agent and can't give away any info.

Late last night I got a strong hunch that if Kelly declines it wll be Lovie.  I bet they decide by Monday.  Trestman as OC?

PTR

Actually doing the WC offense with Spiller will be awesome, especially if they can get an accurate QB like Alex Smith.  This may actually work especially if they can get Levitre and Byrd signed up.  Then they can focus on the 2nd WR and the LB Corps in the draft.  Lovie, Testman adn Marinelli Get Er Done

Lovie Smith is 22-43 against winning teams. Whiz is 15-29.  Chan was, of course, 1-19.  Jauron was 4-27.

Belichick is 64-47 with the Pats.
Lovie 3-3 in playoff games.

Can someone please remind me what a playoff game is again?

Playoff game? It's an old nfl myth about these big games that are played after the regular season. They don't really exist, but my dad says he saw one once. He also said he.saw bigfoot, so take it Fwiw....

Is it possible that all of this tweeting might be having an effect on lovie negotiations, especially the "power of social media" tweet?
