Why would you interview Archuleta for his opinion of Babich? Lovie Smith wanted BOTH of these jokers and neither one of them is worth it. They need to get rid of both of them, plus Benson. What a laughing joke the Bears have become this year. I have been a Bears fan for over 20 years and am very disappointed in EVERY aspect of this team this year. Same guys on defense as we had last year (minus loss there) and they are playing like junior high students. That goes back to Babich, plain and simple.

Perhaps the defensive schemes should be reworked to involve the abilities that the defensive players have. If a system is difficult to execute, it does no good unless the players can get it done. At this point in time the players have not gotten it done on defense, so maybe the schemes need to be reworked in a way that is easier for players to execute. If you ask me, that is poor coaching.

Maybe we'll think about drafting a safety this year in the first 2 rounds instead of relying on Mike Brown to play one game, then go on IR. I can't believe how bad we are this year. And why would Lovie think that playing with one saftey (let's face it, Archuleta couldn't cover Olin Kreutz running a post pattern and tackles like a sissy) instead of two (Chris Harris was a starter in the Super Bowl) would be the way to go? I can't believe how many problems there are with this team on both sides of the ball. Everyone knows that It's Lovie's system, so why is Babich taking the blame. Ron Rivera is a lot smarter than we all thought.
