David Haugh toes the line but doesn’t go over it, so I will. Lovie Smith is just not a good head coach, and it’s time we woke up to that cold hard reality.
In fact, based on the miserable showing of this team in 2 of the last 3 games, I’m questioning the talent evaluators, the GM, the scouts, the front-office people that hire them, and everybody who has a say in a team that displays over-paid mediocrity nearly every Sunday.
The team is a joke, and suffers from a complete lack of leadership at all levels.
Can you even imagine a Ditka coached team from the 1980s losing so badly? Losing close games is one thing. Getting your ass handed to you two weeks out of three, quite another.
Can you imagine a Singletary-led defense playing like that? I sure can’t. Man, I miss that guy. But he seems to have rejuvenated the 49ers, who play the Bears on Thursday night.
Imagine that, a black head coach who got the job because … he’s good at it.
I wonder what that would be like for a Bears team.
Note to ownership: we’ve seen great football in this town, played with passion and intensity and talent and dedication. And this AIN’T it.
I’d never heard of either Jerry Angelo or Lovie Smith when they were hired. But I bought in, and gave them both plenty of time.
Sorry, but I think it’s time to say it: neither one is very good at their jobs.
And so by extension, whoever hired Angelo isn’t very good either.
Wave goodbye to juice box!
