Should we hire Lovie Smith as DC?

But his defense creates turnovers. Ours dont.

Well it’s not like a Tampa 2 will grant Neal and Tru hands. I actually wouldn’t mind seeing this unit in that shell a little more since Kazee is a little more susceptible at centerfield, but then again I wouldn’t trust our CBs in hard flats on run support or Richards with a deep half. 

 

EDIT: definitely wouldn’t trust Riley playing that mid read deep...

It's the coaching. I dont believe they're being taught to attack the ball while it's in the air.

My whole family are Bears fans. They are my second team behind the Falcons. Lovie’s defense benefited greatly due to Urlacher being one of the greatest LBs to ever play the game. Falcons ran a version of the Tampa 2 back when Mike Smith was coaching and it was very “bend but don’t break”.

If we decide to get a new DC this offseason, it needs to be someone with fresh/creative ideas, not a rehash.

Still philosophically the same defense. There's no inherent advantage the Tampa 2 has in creating turnovers that ours doesnt.

Quinn's Seattle defense created turnovers. It's players. Not x's and o's.

I'm not talking about X's or O's. I'm talking which coach teaches about attacking the ball and not the player.

Alford’s brother says they practice it on Thursday...call it turnover Thursday.

When you mention bend but don’t break you are taking scheme.

What happened to Lovie’s teaching in Tampa because they didn’t produce turnovers there, even when he did can Leslie Frazier and take over the defense.

You're so dense it's insane... Kazee leads the league in picks but we don't tell the guys to attack the ball in the air..:rolleyes:

Do you guys know how good we were last year from 2016.

We were top 10 in defense gave up barely 21 pts / game.

Defended Superbowl Champs at 15 pts on their own turf.

Lovie Smith could not have done better than Manuel.

Disagree on this one.

Our defense was good last year. Maybe all that soft zone is a product of what's left on the field.

Don't know what happened in Tampa, but that Chicago defense was vicious.

He had better players in Chicago. Just like the defense DQ coordinated in Seattle that finished one year with 39 turnovers had better players.

LOL what?

Professionals aren't supposed to get better? Coaches aren't supposed to coach up players? I can't believe anyone would actually think that......

 There is a reason why some players are all time greats and others dont hardly get in. Missing 4 high level starters on one side of the ball hurts. But think whatever you like
