Would definitely require a switch to 4-3. Lovie has a great eye for defensive football. He would take this passive defense and turn them into ball hawks. Unfortunately, his offense have always underachieved.

I don't think he's the best fit here and he'll probably be a defensive coordinator for a while.

i'd be ok with him as a DC if he can make the personnel work without blowing it up, but not as HC

I was getting ready to post this too. I think it would be nice to bring him in for some coaching spot.

Smith had an 81-63 record, and was 3-3 in the playoffs. The team, however, failed to qualify for the postseason in his final two years, going 18-14.

He, technically, has a winning record and is better than what we've had, but I really don't see him as someone who'll take us to the promised land so to speak.

No thanks as head coach. Chicago hasn't done much since the sb they lost 6 years ago.

He's also runs the Tampa 2 D doesn't he? A bit more aggressive version but still tampa2.

DJ failed in that system when Herm was here. I'm not against the idea of switching to a 43 just not high on his. We have no mountain man like Urlacher.

He's not the HC we need. another player friendly coach that only accomplishes anything when his QB feels like playing that day. No Thanks.

Hiring a defensive coach just isn't smart. They need a hard *** who cares about offense.

Agreed. Defense has some weak spots but that offense was horrid.

I understand that Mike Holmgren maybe considering coming back to coaching, I would not be aposed to him.

Not big on him. As the HC , ehh.

He'd want HC/GM , never really panned out doing that.

Lovie wouldn't be my first choice. And I definitely don't to want to have to start building a 4-3 defense. We finally have a solid 3-4 linebacker crew and a NT. shifting back to a 4-3 would be an AWFUL idea IMO.

I don't really want to switch to it for the same reasons either.

But we should be able to run a decent 43 w/ players on hand , maybe a hybrid type to switch things up would be okay.

we actually have better personel to run a 4-3 than our 3-4, and the 4-3 is making a comeback to stop the new offenses

Chiefnut I'm just curious.
How would you setup the front 7 if they did make the switch to a 43 ?
I like to hear other's ideas just to compare to mine. I haven't really put alot of thought into it. Got some ideas but would like to hear yours.

No to Lovie for me he has a good D but he has never been able to run anything better then a 15th ranked offense even with a QB. NO to Lovie please
