What are the Bears THINKING???

http://blogs.chicagosports.chicagotr...-marinell.html

They want to hire ex lions coach??

Report: Marinelli gets offer from Bears

By Vaughn McClure

The Bears are certain to have a new defensive line coach next season, but will it be Rod Marinelli?

A radio station in Detroit reported that the former Lions coach received a formal offer from the Bears to coach the defensive line. Marinelli met with Lovie Smith last week and is reportedly now in Seattle receiving consideration for the Seahawks' defensive coordinator position.

Marinelli's agent, Frank Bauer, could not be immediately reached for comment.

Brick Haley, the Bears defensive line coach, was spotted on the LSU campus Monday afternoon, according to Randy Rosetta of the Baton Rouge Advocate. Haley is expected to assume the same title with the Tigers, although head coach Les Miles has yet to confirm the hiring.

Marinelli and Smith are close friends from their days together on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers staff. General manager Jerry Angelo, who also worked with the Bucs, said he would love to have Marinelli join the Bears.

He is actually a very well respected line coach. He may not be a great HEAD coach, but that has little to do with his ability as a personnel coach.

Don't forget, he and Lovie go way back, and he was originally sought to be a Defensive coach with the Bears but took the Lions gig instead. Who could win with that franchise, history says not many.

It is possible for a man to be a good coordinator or position coach but a bad Head Coach. Lovie Smith, for example.

I hardly see how Lovie Smith is a bad head coach. A Super Bowl appearance and perennial contender...much more than the Bears were prior to his lead. He gets a bad wrap.

I'm all for this. He was/is a lousy head coach, but a successful coordinator.

Just remember the eh season was Kyle's fault. At least that is who the Bears seem to be pointing their finger at. :

I don't agree with that, I think the defense not finishing games had a big part to do with the bad season.

Tough to point ANY fingers on either side of the ball - The whole team failed to show up this past season - Consistency was always an issue - The Run - the Pass - The Catch and even the one positive we had in Hester was not apparent

Don't get me wrong, I don't think that. It hit the Sunday paper that some in the "office" were pointing fingers that way. I think Kyle did a good, not great, but good job. He needed better targets and to stop telegraphing his throws. Defense was good not great. They looked tired too early and I think the D coordinator changed modes once we had a lead which hurt. Some of the offensive and defensive play calling in the 2nd half just made me shake my head. For a high paid D, we didn't dominate and Brian had a yuke year which didn't help. There is plenty of blame to go around.

Make no mistake- this defense is Lovie Smith's defense. Any Defensive Coordinator on the Bears staff is just a puppet running Lovie's defense.

The defense got old slow and bad. It happens. The window is about shut.

Another glaring issue is Angelo's inability to draft well.

I think he is a wise choice for the D.
They need to get a big name receiver and get rid of Ron Turner.
I'm so sick of the " if we have a solid defense and a strong running game we are fine"
That shit worked in the 70's. It doesn't work today

If my calculations are correct, this will create ice... OH NO, KILLER MUSTARD GAS!

Don't get me started on that one. They took the best return man in NFL history, and turned him into a #3 WR.
