Gruden the Bear?

The irony...

He takes over another team with a great defense, Tampa-2 disciple of Dungy no less, but stagnant offense with a serviceable QB already in place, and pushes them over the top?

He may avoid the Bears just so that people can't paint his legacy as such...

Can't believe they fired Lovie. What a stupid move. Would be awesome to get him as a DC, or in any capacity really.

Gruden the Bear?

Jon Gruden and Jay Cutler? Please let them do hard knocks. That is some reality tv gold.

Urlacher is done. Briggs is overrated. Peanut is old. Peppers is old. I wouldn't consider their defense great anymore. They got some rebuilding to do.

I think the Bears is a great fit for Gruden.

TV gold indeed, but I think they would have a fist fight by mid season. Not a good fit imo.

Peppers still made double digits sacks, and their defense was 5th overall (3rd in points allowed).  But I do agree that they might have missed their window already.

Their defense was breaking records early on, but as the season went on you could see the age having an effect. They slowed down, got tired, got hurt. It's an old crew. They could have one more year left in em, but it appears the window has closed.

Watch Chicago very closely. Lovie has mirrored Dungy's tenure in Tampa. I think he could be gone. He's got a year left on contract, so either have to fire or extend.

good call

Happy and Peppy and Bursting with love.

Firings

Buffalo Bills: Coach Chan Gailey was let go after three seasons that went nowhere in Buffalo. The defense and quarterback play never improved. It's unclear if general manager Buddy Nix will remain.

Chicago Bears: In the first mild surprise of the day, coach Lovie Smith was fired after three playoff appearances in nine years, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported. General manager Phil Emery took the job last year and will hire his own man.

Wonder if we can get Lovie as our DC. I doubt it but he would be interesting.
