Whether the Bears are 6-3 or 3-6, you gotta love it when they beat the Vikings and Brett Favre. It's all we ever ask.
The major sports media in town have taken the angle that this win just prolongs the inevitable: the firing of Lovie Smith. After a complete game in which we got to see the Chicago Bears signature defense and the Chicago Bears offense play in tandem, the focus is on how the Bears aren't really that good but this was a step in the right direction.
Flying around the ball, rolling the pocket, dominating in special teams - this was the way we thought the Bears would play under Lovie. If this kind of football is played with consistency, why would we want another coach?
I know it's unpopular to like Lovie Smith. But his style of football is to play loose and to wreak havoc. Toward the end of the game when kick returner Percy Harvin fumbled away the kickoff, I was hoping that the challenge would show he retained posession. Why?
