Hmmm. I like it... the season goes well for the Bears right when Lovie needs an extension.
This isn't a new thing for the man. After the 7 - 9 misfire in 2009, Lovie was under a "win or you're fired" mandate from Jerry Angelo, who was just starting to catch hell from Ted Phillips. The Bears responded with the 11 - 5 season and NFC Championship Game run that saved Lovie's job.
