He did take the most dangerous special teams player in the history of the league and not only ruin him, but pay him so much money that no other team would even think about trading for him. He did fire his defensive coordinator after the defense was the only thing that got the bears to the super bowl.. only to bring in one of his cronies who failed miserably. HE (more than angelo) is the one who pushed for the Gaine Adams trade... that worked out well. He decided to make all of the defensive play calling this season, which lead to the worst bears blow-out in nearly a decade. He fired Rob Boras, and the tight ends are the only ones who knew what they were doing on the field. He has watched more talent walk out the door than any other coach in the league. Come to think about it the only positive thing that I can think of what will have happened during the lovie smith era is that they landed a quarterback who they could build a team around. It'd be hard for Brady or Manning not to throw picks when their WRs aren't smart enough to learn their play-routes, when the opposing team scores on each and every drive so you're constantly playing from behind and are have no choice but to force passes, and when they spend half of their time laying on their backs because the O-Line couldn't stop a charging girl scout.
"Rex is our quarterback."
"We'll have to look at the tapes on Monday to see what we did wrong."
Any other questions?
