Buck Doesn't Stop At Top As Lovie Smith stays, but OC Ron Turner walks the plank for Bears

Not that offensive coordinator Ron Turner doesn't deserve to be fired after some really questionable play calling for a couple years now, but if head coach Lovie Smith had any semblance of class, he'd re negotiate his recently renegotiated contract downward as his portion of the blame for how the team has sucked so much since he rode the wave to the Super Bowl LOSS from all the work everyone did before he showed up.

The Bears offense wasn't even really their main problem,  with the offense ranked 12 and the defense 9 in the NFC they're not that far apart, but in my opinion it's their defense that needs the help more than anything, as their top players were injured all year long with their very best player out for the entire season, some who may never return as far as we know.

But that's Lovie's territory so gotta blame something else, like the offense. But like I said, Turner's play calling has always been goofy to say the least in the eyes of this lifetime fan at least, so he won't be missed to much by the fans.

Phillips said money wasn't a factor in retaining Smith, but his comments indicated both Smith and general manager Jerry Angelo will enter 2010 on the hot seat.

Yea right, and Obama was born in, well, wherever he was born. They're more afraid of firing him because he's black more than anything, I'll tell you that much.

However, as far as the money goes and contrary to what the quote above says, it has a lot to do with money as well, since the Bears owners, the McCaskey's, who are descendants of original football charter member Papa Bear Halas, squeeze nickels so tight they make the gosh darn eagles scream.

 USATODAY.com: "LAKE FOREST, Ill. — The Chicago Bears retained head coach Lovie Smith on Tuesday, but will be looking for new offensive and defensive coordinators.

'Status quo was not an option,' Bears president and CEO Ted Phillips said in confirming the coaching staff shakeup that replaces 75% of the offensive staff.

Offensive coordinator Ron Turner and five other offense assistants were fired.

Smith, who has two years for a total of about $11 million left on his contract, will return for his seventh season but relinquish the defensive coordinator role he assumed in 2009. He said he will look outside the organization for both coordinator berths.

Also ousted with Turner were quarterbacks coach Pep Hamilton, offensive line coach Harry Hiestand, tight ends coach Rob Boras, offensive assistant/assistant offensive line coach Luke Butkus and offensive assistant/assistant wide receivers coach Charles London.  continued
