Cowher “excited” by Bears job

Have you ever been in a bar and immediately noticed that special someone across the bar, that ideal fantasy girl that makes your jeans a little tight?   But just as you’re working up the nerve to approach her while unraveling a sordid fantasy suitable only for a Penthouse letter in your mind, some douche bag approaches your fantasy girl and starts talking her up.  A few cheesy lines and several drinks later, your dream girl is rolling off with Captain D-bag and you’re rolling home with nothing but a a feeling of regret and wondering “what if?”

If you get a warm tingly feeling thinking about a former Super Bowl Champion coach patrolling the sidelines along Chicago’s lakefront, take note:  the Chicago Bears coaching job would “excite” former Steelers coach Bill Cowher.  Sure, the source from the NFL Network lumped the Houston Texans in with the Bears, but who would choose the expansion Texans over the Beloved Bears?  Seriously?

You want fire?  You want passion?  You want “the jaw?”  You want the anti-Lovie?  Then you want Cowher.  Only one problem: Ralph Wilson and the Buffalo Bills are sniffing around Coach Cowher.  The former Steelers coach is basically throwing himself at the Bears, begging for them to come a-callin’.  There’s a problem though.That whole fantasy sequence at the beginning of our little post.  One thing I forgot to mention – you are at the bar with your wife.  Oh yeah, the wife that you’ve been with for a few years now.  You’ve had good times together, but you both know the relationship is going nowhere.  (Please note, this has absolutely NOTHING to do with my lovely wife, with whom I am madly in love!)  In case you need to have the dots connected, the wife is Lovie Smith.  You can’t go after the new girl until you dump the wife.  Dump Lovie and go get this beauty!

Are the McCaskey’s willing to pay for the divorce and pursue Cowher?

    Bill Cowher would be a PERFECT fit in Chicago. He is a tough, no nonsense guy – a personification of Chicago Bears defense, and a run-the-ball-down-their-throat kind of guy. I like Lovie Smith but Ron Turner and that whole offensive staff need to go. The offensive line hasn’t been good in a long time. They brought Pep Hamilton over from SF to be the QB coach. He couldn’t do anything with any of their QB’s and now we have a pro bowl QB and he looks worse than Alex Smith. I don’t see Lovie Smith giving them the boot after the year is over, which means the entire staff should be vacating their offices. And as far as the defense is concerned, Lovie’s big mistake was letting Ron Rivera go to the Chargers and promoting Bob Babich to defensive coordinator. My how things change…

    It’s time to clean house!! Fire them all bring in Cowher and let’s start winning again!! and if Angelo doesn’t like he can go too!! Bill Cowher is exactly what we need a no nonsense in your face type of coach.

    I agree this is exactly the way to go, but it is this kind of logical move that will never happen as long as the McCaskeys are in charge…no disrespect to the matriarch, Ginny.

    After all, didn’t we give up a second round pick for a WR playing defensive end (Mr. Adams).

    The bottom line on Lovie is that he has screwed up the side of the ball that he’s supposed to know best – defense. I don’t know if Rivera was any damn good or not but it’s clear that the Babich promotion was a mistake. Even Lovie realized this and took over play calling. And now that he’s in charge our D is at the bottom of the barrel. It isn’t all Urlacher’s absence. There’s a clear correlation between Lovie’s involvement and the defensive decline. And let’s not forget who pushed for Adam Frick’n Archuletta. So we’ve got a situation where we can question a) his player evaluation b) his play calling ability, and c) his evaluation of his assistant coaches. And that’s on the side of the ball he’s supposed to “know”.

    As for Cowher, I have to doubt that the Bears will pay Lovie AND pay big bucks to a marquee coach. If we get someone, and I think we do need someone else, it will be a mid-shelf hire.

    Stone – that’s exactly the wrong way to look at it. The Bears need to go big or go home. There is no sense hiring some unknown coordinator. Go out and get one of these top tier guys (Cowher, Shannahan, Holmgren) and do it up right.

    If a public institution of higher learning can dump a worthless tub of goo (Here come the Irish) then a professional football team with HUGE TV contracts and corporate sponsorships not to mention big PSL $$’s can pop a few million on a real coach. We paid Cedric Benson how many millions to do nothing here but whine and be hurt? It’s time we hold the organization to a higher standard!
