IMO this is exactly the problem--the players have become too complacent under Lovie. The NFL is a business. The head coach is not your "friend" and should never be considered as such on a successful team. These guys are getting paid millions to play football and win, not spend time with their BFFs. http://espn.go.com/chicago/nfl/story/_/id/8795815/chicago-bears-fire-lovie-smith-missing-playoffs To that, I say "good riddance". He's become completely useless as a player both on offense and special teams when they've tried to force his two functioning brain cells to learn pass routes.
