Mon, 17 Dec 2012|
The CTL panel debates whether or not it's time for the Bears to move on from Lovie Smith and discuss Brian Urlacher's comments about the fans and media - 12/17
I don't care if they beat Arizona and Detroit and finished tied at six. Unless he takes miraculously takes his team to a super ball we've seen enough. It is time to cut the cord -- Lovie Smith gone okay. And I agree with you but I was told earlier before the Green Bay game that if if they've made the playoffs not only would he be back next year he would get that extension so your hope. Is that they don't make the playoffs and then we'll see what happens none of us here sitting here know exactly what's going to happen we all theorized. That if they don't make the playoffs he's out for sure. But we're not making that decision. -- it up -- them in the -- speculate based an educated people been around in the -- have been around organization in the very conservative. But look at I think you're on the right track but I don't always carried away because you can't predict if they win a game they get in the NFC championship game. And the arrows pointing up all those things I think are highly unlikely that. Then I think get Saddam take a deep breath and say you know what OK I can understand they can justify doing whatever they're going to do however. Nine years. He said one offense rank fifteenth or better nine years there's no -- fifteenth and everything else weigh up the track. You've got an expensive guy at quarterback if you're gonna try to fix him you must get rid of this coaching staff you must put an animal into Lake Forest. Clean it out a great offensive mind in here. I -- they -- they need to do that I think that this is. There's stagnant this has not been what they expected the offensive in the the story of the season. But you have to put -- talk about standards to meet. You know if you get into the playoffs I don't think that's enough I close I don't think that should be enough. Nobody knows what Phil Emery is gonna do anyone who -- say that they do like it is fooling themselves okay we just don't know accept it although yesterday. What did you think they said of all the rest of all the weak -- Was pregame interview Jeff Joni backwards talked about the future. And said look ahead as a general question Phil Emery said you know what let's focus on today. You well he had an opportunity there I called bad guys in the question -- an opportunity to give his -- to go to conference and past -- -- yeah it. I don't think so it's not. Put here there's nothing if there is a changed then you are talking before the show I think it's got to be someone like Pete Carroll. Create a brand -- talks about accountability accountability and it fell and I was always told this wasn't coast given Greg wrongs from Washington. It's every -- an interview doesn't matter so TH to the manner to third -- can't -- take -- -- the -- pre season game. Every day -- fight for your job is right now Pete Carroll. Is Matt Flynn making 500000 dollars a day sit on the bench if it. I gave -- veteran C. Had a legitimate competition Russell Wilson -- I think those guys out there a little scared because scare pro or pro out this little bit and make them really accountable don't talk about accountability -- But let's talk about Brian Urlacher. Brian Urlacher took shots at the fans and the media we're used to and picking on the media who cares big deal that. I was as the Minnesota couple weeks go -- Minnesota was winning the game they were blowing Christian Ponder and Detroit is aware bags over their heads I don't know what he's talking about I'm never going in Green Bay because the Bears never went up there to be honest with you. And the second part about the fans I learned a long time ago you cannot ripped the fans I don't care if your god you cannot rip the fans. Ozzie Guillen ripped the fans look what happened to him all the -- his fan base went down immediately so that's and that's a losing such a way. It's incredible to me is the guy who spent thirteen seasons in football city and been beloved. You can't find a more popular player in post 85 Bears air than Brian Urlacher. And though lacks the presence of mind an opportunity these kind of tough. He's got to respect the fact these people are fed up there's a lot of -- fatigue got that failure to recognize that is just ignorant singly sad is even dumber. Good that's the -- thin when times are tough for him to -- sounds like a Foster prior sounds like a frustrated team. You guys aren't playing games talking about experience all right comprised of -- now he's hurt. I think these teams come apart I think they're they're fall -- you lose five or six in their photos you lose two straight and felt. The secretary to relocate we were walking ability Guzman a six. But you don't point fingers -- two guys are saying stuff like this and everything -- and that's not me that's. When times are tough -- you learn a lot about people and that was uncalled for.
