The Bears dropped out of the playoff race about 10 Jay Cutler interception ago, but they remain in the thick of a bevy of gridiron debates. In some case, they're unwitting participants -- like in asking if Cleveland's Josh Cribbs edges Devin Hester as the decade's top return man after a pair of 100-yard returns Sunday. But Lovie Smith's team is also doing its part by failing time and again.

Even as Jim Zorn prepares for Monday's game against the Giants, there are more and more rumors suggesting Mike Shanahan might be coaching the Redskins next season. But one SportsNation blogger has been preaching that Shanahan is the Windy City's answer.

So will Lovie Smith still be on the sideline in Chicago next season? And is his quarterback more to blame for this season's disappointments than he is?


Was Lovie the one who traded for colorblind Cutler? Is he the one who completely failed to aquire ANY decent receivers? Hey Lovie, we've got a job for you as defensive coordinator here in NY!

I'm on board the Angelo and Turner firing bus. Angelo really made a horrible decision to get Gaines Adams. Turner simply doesn't try anything different. I think Lovie really needs a D-coordinator to call the plays on defense. Maybe it's time to move away from the cover 2.
