Romo was absolutely embarrassing to watch. On a happier note, that Vikings-Packers game kind of rocked! Entertainment at its finest.

I'm still not convinced that Lovie is the problem -- he's a hell of a coach and the team always plays hard. It's just hard to run any sort of an offense when your offensive line is nonexistent, and when there's barely any work done to bolster a rapidly aging defense, that hurts, too.

Emery needs to put his foot down and order Lovie to hire a legitimate offensive coordinator (pro tip: promote Jeremy Bates). Emery also needs to DRAFT SOME FUCKING OFFENSIVE LINEMEN JESUS FUCKING CHRIST YOU COCK-JUGGLING HOSEBAG.

Re: NFL 2012 - Drive to Glory

I love Romo and I hate Romo. I'm absolutely numb to these games over the years. The crazy thing is that that rag tag defense of off the street players actually did a good job with the skins. I think they were just on the field too long and the Cowboys offense was nonexistant. I don't think the Skins have anything for the Seahawks though.

I suppose since he was the head coach he had to take the fall... but he seemed to be a good person to have in that position. Calm demeanor, level-headed. Timby, would
you say the problem is more at the lower levels, like that OL you commented about?

Lovie always comes off as single-minded with the "come off the bus running", yet the Bears either ignore or abandon it pretty quickly.

Also, Lovie has to have some (or a lot) of input in the draft, no? Yet they drafted a whole bunch of defensive players this year, and Lovie is a defense minded guy.

True, the multiple injuries aren't his fault, but other teams manage to get by with a lot of injuries and that's down to great coaching.

Lovie is a great guy and a great defensive mind (when he's not stuck in cover-2 mode all the time), but I've never felt like he was a great head coach.

Most great head coaches were mediocre defensive or offensive coaches, or players for that matter, which I think prevents them from getting too much into one mode or the other as a head coach.

The same way the best baseball managers were OK players not great players.

I always though Ditka was a great head coach, before he lost his mind. He just had a way of motivating players and allowed his assistant coaches to do their job.

But then, Buddy Ryan turned around and sucked as a head coach.

I hope a lot of not-former head coaches get chances. I'm sick of the same guys getting regurgitated around the league.

Hard to believe K/C. didn't fire the GM too. They've sucked for longer than Crennel has been there.

I think Whisenhunt is a good coach who got screwed by his front office's inability to find a QB... but at the same time he clearly lost his team this season so he had to go.

I'm sure Lovie's a good coach to play for but he left a ton to be desired as an NFL head coach. Not saying everyone needs to be Mike "Trou Dropping Nuclear Meltdown" Singletary but Lovie could have done a much better job of lighting the fire under his team's asses once in awhile instead of doing his best Iraqi Information Minister imitation and constantly claiming everything was alright with the team. His non-existent clock management skills and constant deer-in-headlights look while the season was crumbling around him were chronic problems that never improved.

^ On his radio show, Jay Cutler talked about how Lovie was a "player's coach" and the players' friend.

I think Lovie was maybe too mellow and too much of a player's coach. Kinda the other extreme from Singletary or Ditka.

Now, if the Bears can simply find a really good head coach (plus maybe a new OC), and four or five new guys for the offensive line, they're bound to improve.
