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

      I haven't been here in ages. But I have fished Moonshine, Caribou, Trout, Little Trout, Wabana, Bee Cee (when it held trout), Lucky, Kremer and Nickel. So this thread caught my eye.

      I live on the north side of Cass on the Pughole. We had 30 inches of ice out in front of my dock yesterday. Pughole is the flowage between Kitchie and Cass. I'm 200 yards off Cass and the current is pretty strong there. Top few inches was pretty mushy. Nothing happening as far as fish yet. But they are coming. Jumbos move in soon. Also seen a truck out off of Star Island on Monday evening. I imagine they have more ice out on the main lake than I have. I'm for sure going to be out ice fishing through next week at my place. Ice hasn't even begun to pull from shore at my place.

      Hey there DUCKHTR . No need for a guide to hunt divers on Leech or Big Winnie . Your spots that you hunted early season on Leech will also be good spots for later season . I don't duck hunt anymore , but I used to hunt a lot on Winnie , mostly all my hunting there was on the north end Third River Flowage . Travel north from Deer River up Hwy 46 to the sign that directs you to turn left , then travel west on that gravel road for about 10-12 miles to the 3rd river boat landing . You should have no problem launching your boat there . From the landing outward is a lot of tall reeds on both sides of you  , this flowage widens out as you go farther out ,and depending on your wind direction on the day of your hunt , you can just pick and choose a spot  , all the way out , and down to Mallard Point where it really opens up to big water on Winnie . You will need to buy up 3-4 dozen Bluebill decoys , and also use your Mallard decoys you must already have . We used to have great shoots in that area of the lake . In the dark of the morning when your heading out you may have other hunters shine a flashlight your way , they are just letting you know that they are already set up in that spot , don't worry , there is plenty of room for many different hunting groups in the flowage . Once you get a few hunts below your belt , you will then have a better understanding of some of your favorite spots to set up ..  I had one particular spot we used to call the "Meat Market" because we used to kill so many ducks there in that spot . Just put out your decoys in the spot you choose , and then  pull your boat into the reeds parallel to the water , wait for legal shooting hrs , and have at it . From my recollection the Bills would start to trickle down from the north around the 20th or so of Oct .. I I hope this helps you out somewhat .

      Well played.  Wish more people had that attitude.  Even a reduced statewide limit and/or a minimum keeper size would be fine by me.

      I crossed paths with the person that works over there yesterday & got to ask if they would be netting on the Opener? Their reply was it might be July.  We'll see, may run into them again in the near future.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.
