Clowns Are Running the Bears

All that was missing from the Bears Post-season/Fire Ron Turner/Try to justify keeping Lovie presser was Virginia McCaskey swinging from a trapeze and Michael passing out balloon animals.  "Make me a bicycle, clown!" Papa Bear is rolling over in his grave at the sad state of his Chicago Bears. 

As a lot of these things nowadays go, most of the drama had played out on the interwebs and Twitter long before anyone stepped to the podium at 1000 Football Drive today. We already knew what was going to happen.  Here's a brief snippet from some of the fun and games:




A few things occurred to me as I listened to the action unfold:

Ted Phillips is a total joke.  At one point in the press conference, when he mentioned how he looked around the league to see what good teams do, I nearly fell out of my chair.  Does that tell you that his football IQ is only slightly lower to his shoe size or what?

Teddy Bear's patronizing mentions of "the fans" and "their passion" made me want to vomit.  Anyone with a pulse realizes you know you're making an unpopular move but desperately want to get some backing from the fans who are about to get their season ticket renewals in the mail, with a "modest increase" of course.

Ted's contention that part of the reason to keep Lovie and Jerry because they work well together sounded like an first grade report card.  "They listen and play well with others."  What has their working together gotten us - a runner up trophy from a failed trip to Miami three years ago.

There were a lot of "I," um, I mean "we" talk from both Lovie and Jerry.  Do you think they were reminded or reprimanded by a PR person that there is no "I" in team?

Jerry Angelo's grasp of the English language is suspect, at best.  His "We're in a business of evolvement" quote made me laugh out loud.  Evolvement?  Really?  Just like you're not here to show off your "geniousness."

On one hand, they talked about how good teams admit and recognize their mistakes, but on the other hand, Lovie refuses to budge and changing his defensive scheme.  In fact, the only time Lovie appears to have a pulse is when you question his scheme.  It's like questioning a born-again Christian about Jesus. 

It just speaks to the fact that despite his soft-spoken, Texas drawl and easy going act,  Lovie is an arrogant prick. 

ATTENTION LOVIE - YOUR FUCKING DEFENSE DOESN'T WORK ANY MORE.  THE PLAYERS THAT RAN IT SUCCESSFULLY IN 2006 ALL GOT OLD AND YOUR GM FAILED TO FIND SUITABLE  REPLACEMENTS.

As a matter of fact, the whole organization is arrogant.  When questioned about how they sell the vacant offensive and defensive coordinator jobs, both Jerry and Lovie seemed almost insulted that the question was asked. 

They indicated that there would be no shortage of candidates.  Sure, but are there any GOOD candidates? Mike Martz and Perry Fewell don't do anything for me, but sadly, they're your front-runners.

Ted said that Lovie never had back-to-back losing seasons.  Guess where I plan to be next season?  At Halas Hall for the press conference when they finally wise up and...

FIRE LOVIE!!!

If they post a losing season in 2010, I will personally drive you to Lake Forest just to see what you do. 'Cause it'll probably be awesome.

I guess this blog is defunct now ? A relic. A bygone. The tumbleweed will be through in a minute. I man you can't go on for another year saying 'Fire Lovie' ... if he makes the playoffs, he gets another year. If he doesn't, he's gone anyway. You'd be like those smelly old characters with their 'The end is nigh' signs.

Irish - we will not go quietly into that good night. As promised, we're not going anywhere until Lovie is gone. We will continue to look at the Bears organization through very critical eyes as Lovie, Jerry and Ted make a mockery of this once-proud franchise.
