Lovie still doesn't get it. I hope he isn't as timid with his coaches and the team as he is with the media. And if he truly feels comfortable in thinking his team is in first place and doesn't require major changes, then I hope Bear management is prepared to shake things up at the next level to get some results. If the team carrys this same attitude into this weeks game, look for the Rams to have season high stats in yards gained.

I wish it would stop being stressed that the Bears are a "first place" ball club. Their wins equal their losses exactly. It's a .500 ball club, nothing more, nothing less. If they get to the playoffs at this point, it's because they begin to play better. It will not be because they do the same things that got them to be a "first place" ball club.

Isn't everyone really tired of listening to Smith talk about the Bears? His excuses, reasons, and descriptions on what the Bears are doing is the biggest bunch of BS I have ever heard and it is really tiresome. Give me someone who shows some emotion about his line of work and I will show you someone who cares. With Smith he looks and sounds like someone who just woke up from a coma. Get rid of this loser Smith asap!!!!!!!!

Something is rotten in Denmark and Lake Forest.The Bears as a team changed when Jim Finks came along.(He even helped the Cubs if you remember)
Then Jerry Vanisi tried to keep it going but the ownership would not give up the control.The problem is now in the hands of the general manager.He as the overseer of the whole team has to get to the bottom of the problem and solve it.Now would be a good time.Everyone on the defence has a history of great play.Why they won't play up to there skill level is the problem.If he can't see the problem then we are doomed to lose.

Lovie, you are NOT a first place team. You are merely in the lucky position of playing in the worst division in football. You are also the beneficiary of playing the Detroit Lions twice (and you could barely handle them a few weeks ago).

In the AFC east you would be a LAST place team.

In the AFC North you would be a third place team (second to last)

In the AFC South you would be a third place team.

In the NFC East you would be a LAST place team.

In the NFC South Team you would be a LAST place team.

You do you think you are fooling?

Your terrible coaching blew the Atlanta and Tampa games. This team stinks! NO heart, no brains, no grasp of reality!!! I'm sick of you and your inability to face up to reality. Please go away. The fans have caught on to your act, and we are not buying it. Now go and get Urlachers car washed and don't forget to pick up Tommie Harris's dry cleaning.

I cannot BELIEVE he talks about being a first place ballclub! What an idiot. The Paytons and Picolos of yesteryear must be spinning in their graves, and rightly so! Geez Lovie, the Republicans could use a guy like you ("shoot, we got 46% of the vote") Wake the F up or get out of town you are a disgrace.

I could be very elegant with my words here but elegance is not on my mind. Lovie Smith is full of S**T.

They are actually in 2nd due to head-to-head loss to you-know-who last week. I believe the Rams will have a good day this weekend.

comments ??!! I don't dare say how I feel. I can only say that I've watched most every game since 1955. I believe George Blanda has been our best qb to date. I'll also say that, for the first time EVER, I walked away from Sunday's game before halftime, saying that I'll NEVER waste my time again, watching this s**t !! It was brought on by the incomplete pass to stop the clock and allow GRB to kick a field goal (not to mention the demoralization of my favorite ball team's defense) Forget " ", forget the Sun Times and the Trib. I never want to hear again about that bunch of cowards and losers again,and I know all about losers being a bear fan for 58 years, but they were NEVER cowards until Sunday !! I'll just watch bowling and golf on Sundays in my remaing few years !!!
