    Bears sign coach Lovie Smith through 2013

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/category/rumor-mill/


    Bears coach Lovie Smith was under contract through 2011. The last time he was entering a lame-duck year, he received a four-year extension. This time, there were questions as to whether he had done enough to get another new deal.

    In the end, the Bears found a compromise, giving Smith security but only half the security he received four years ago.

    The team announced Friday morning that Smith has received a two-year extension.

    There ya go. At the beginning of the year Lovie was on the hot seat, under tremendous pressure to produce or be gone. he hires Mike Tice as an assistant and he is back in the drivers seat. Mike Tice saved Lovies' job.
    Why must you defend everything this FO does....to the point of making your self look like a yes man.
