This doesn't surprise me that Smith and Turner are not aware of what the other is saying. I'm pretty sure that these two don't even talk to one another until game day.

Also, is it me, or does Lovie look like he's listening to circus music in his headset during games ... or maybe air traffic control banter. He always looks confused as if he has something to say, but doesn't know what to say. Granted, I would probably look and do the same thing if I were standing on the sidelines of a Bear game, but c'mon, the guy should at least look like he's involved in the game. I was watching the 1986 AFC divisonal playoff game between the Browns and the Jets on ESPN2 last night and Schottenheimer and Cowher are yellin and screamin and are talking to their players and are actually coaching ... this is something that I don't see on the Bears sideline. Instead, I see a bewildered Lovie and an unenthusiastic group of coaches and players ...

I hope Favre buries them this weekend.

turner is just incompetent.

putting trust into someone that week after week calls questionable plays... needs to be scrutinized also.

if lovie feels that this has been going on since the beginning of the season, he should've stepped in and started calling plays himself or placing the play calling onto someone that knows WHAT THE HELL HE'S DOING!

ultimately, by the way this offsense has been going, how can turner sit back and say... "YES, I'VE DONE MY BEST" if i was him, i'd resign now. save face and find a high school team in podunk to coach.

worthless POS

CAN THIS TEAM GET A CLUE?!?!?!?
