Have the Bears lost their minds???

Recommended Posts

They have one of the hot prospects to be someones next head coach, a real commodity for a defensive coordinator and they just announce they don't want to retain him and they promote one of their assistants... The Bears D has literally carried that team for two full seasons and you just summarily dump the coordinator?

WHAT GIVES???? confused.gif

Maybe. I think the bigger question is, what is wrong with Rivera? He has interviewed for more than a handful of coaching jobs and has been passed over for less proven coordinators and retreads, plus being dumped by his own team. What is he doing wrong? It almost makes you wonder if he has the interview skills to get a job a White Castle.

See,

Fishy has got the ole "thinking cap" on up there. Nice pick up Fish! Word here in the Windy is that Lovie doesn't want to Trash Rivera so he is just saying that the two of them have different "visions" of what the Bears want to do on defense from here forward. Translation, they are dumping him to move in another direction. I think the fact that they let him interview for head jobs and the fact that he didn't land any of them speaks volumes. Lovie is the one that built this horse, Ron just held the reigns and let the stallion run.

More importantly - when are Da Bears going to sign Smith to a long term deal! He just brought his team to the Superbowl and is the lowest paid coach in the NFL!

Myself I feel coaches are overrated but with that said he still needs to be paid for what his team did! PAY THE MAN!

Windy,

Just because I can't have everyone around here thinking you and I are going to start agreeing on things, grin.gif I am going to have to add to my post.

I think the events around Rivera's job hunting the last couple of years brings up a lot of questions about Mr. Rivera. That said, I would have a hard time arguing with someone who questions why the Bears would risk the change when things could not have been better on the defensive side of the football in his tenure.

PS. Welcome back, but I liked your last avatar better. grin.gif We will have to get the baseball forum fired up again now that pitchers and catchers have reported.

Fishy,

I don't know what is going on up at Halas Hall these days. Word is that Lovie may now test the free agent market. The Bears really screwed the pooch on this one. Angelo could have had him signed sealed and delivered this season but decided to hold out on the renewal. Now it looks like Lovie is the one who is going to hold out and he is holding all the cards. Not sure where the brains are in the Windy these days, I guess they are all over at "The Cell" with my beloved Pale Hose!!! LOL

      Ditto this. ^^^^.  Plus they eventually crack and break.

      Mike, the clam bar is going to be your best bet. But I run the troo shine strip lights in my one man flip. There great super bright and have sticky tape on them to connect to a pole. The clam light bar is about same in price maybe a bit more but extremely bright and can be mounted in your poles. I also have the clam sled lights on mine to not as bright but helps light up the ice in front for fishing or the sled or both. Hope that helps

      I am looking for a LED Rope lights to hang in my clam ice house for fishing at night.  I know you can purchase a light bar from clam, but I am thinking there must be a cheaper way.  I am looking for suggestions.  Please provide the brand.  Thanks, Mike

      The white hockey tape, then black electric tape over.  The hockey tape by itself gets too wet for me. The black electric tape sheds water better than the hockey tape.  After a few yrs of use the black will leave a gunky residue on the rod if used by itself Have also tried the reel bands, not a big fan of them when fighting a big fish.
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Masking tape on rod handle then electrical tape reel to rod. Works good!
    • BriGuy88
      Hockey tape for me.  Bought a roll 10 years ago and probably have another 10 years left in it, unless I go on a shopping spree for rods/reels!

      Finally got out there Saturday after wanting to for almost 10 years! After reading all the pointers on here and looking at maps we gave it a try. Ended up catching around 15 between the 2 of us in about 4 hrs biggest being about 6lbs. Had a blast and will definitely do it again!  Oh and you're not kidding about a lite bite I think only one actually pulled the bobber  under!

      I was on Turtle Lake.  I've always found the clarity good there although I also haven't seen a boatload of pike.  Centerville was awful a couple of weeks ago as was Peltier although they both can change in a few weeks.  Sorry I didn't reply sooner but I was up north seeing almost 50 fish in two days on a small lake west of Bemidji.  Nice clear water there and pike from 10 to 38 inches long.

      Just fished Potato for the first time this winter. Found walleyes in 15 feet of water off the mid lake humps during the day/late afternoon. Had the camera down and saw plenty of eyes but couldn't get them to bite. Was wondering if this lake is more of a night bite.

      Any clue how it started? Really a bummer. Just remembering some of the fun times there.
