WE ARE! And we will always be...
So Lovie isn't a quality coach because he doesn't win enough... Tomlin wins, but that doesn't make him a good coach... Cmon man. Although I don't agree with you, I do agree that the situation is more complicated than first glance.
Edit: Lovie's struggles with the Bears offense is key. But I think the GM is as much to blame as Lovie (as well as Grossman/Cutler). For years he was clamoring for talent on that side of the ball... He had some say in the draft and personnel decisions, but not as much as you would think. There was friction there too. Getting fired after a 10 win season is a strong indication of that, and that's word on the street.

Sometimes I love your passion, RMJ, and sometimes I just can't figure out how you come up with some of your arguments. You implied that Lovie Smith hasn't been hired because he's black. If an owner isn't hiring him because of his skin color, the owner is by definition racist. It's like you want to imply that over and over again but then not acknowledge what your implication means.
I didnt say he wasn't hired because he wasn't black. I have had several PM convos and anyone that I talked with can back me up on that. Or anyone on here can. Im looking big picture. And I used Lovie as an example as how black coaches have a smaller network, copied a Bruce Arians article that illustrates this point and still people think that I am saying that Lovie is out of work because hes black. No. My arguement is a big picture thing. Scroll back and look for yourself. Im done...
