LOWER THE BOOM – Tommie Harris: “They better keep Lovie”
Tommie Harris has spoken, so listen up McCaskey family or Ted Phillips or Jerry Angelo or whoever purports to wield the power at Halas Hall and actually makes decisions about the future of the Chicago Bears. Here are some precious gems that Harris provided from Vaughn McClure’s Chicago Tribune post-game wrap:
"“Don’t blame it on Lovie,” Harris said. “It ain’t Lovie’s fault. You better check out the higher sources. Everybody needs to be held accountable. Don’t start pointing the blame. If we’re going to start cutting, we need to start cutting from the top to the bottom.“Look at the track record. Look who we brought in to make this team better. Look at all our pieces. Go from the top to the bottom. Don’t throw anybody under the bus. If you messed up, you messed up.”"
I guess that’s fair since Jerry Angelo took a shot at Tommie earlier this season. If that wasn’t bad enough, he gives this insight:
"“They better keep Lovie,” he said. “It’s a must because the next coach, he’s not going to have the respect that we have for Lovie. We don’t get in trouble. We come to work. Our record might not be the best, but we will get better.”"
This coming from the douchebag that Lovie had to essentially suspend against the Bengals because he couldn’t bring himself to practice on a consistent basis?
This from the jackass who lacks the self-control to restrain himself from throwing a punch on the 4th play of the game against the Arizona Cardinals and getting himself kicked out of the game, letting down teammates and coaches alike?
This from the guy who finished the 2009 campaign with 24 tackles, 2.5 sacks and an INT? This is the same Tommie Harris whose 2009 Salary Cap number was in excess of $9 million???
Tommie – thanks for offering your take on the state of the Bears 2010 coaching situation. If I were you, I’d be more concerned about how to spend that next undeserved roster bonus you piece of trash!
Thanks for showing up in the last meaningless games when the outcomes didn’t matter. Where was the effort all season?
Regardless of who is holding the whistle and clipboard next season, I suggest you give him the respect that anyone would give their boss. Why? Because they sign your bloated, ridiculous fucking paycheck that most of us could never earn in a lifetime but you get for each pathetic excuse for a season asshole!
