This doesn't seem like the Bears and what they usually do.

That's a bit of a surprise. Smith will get another HC job though.

Wonder if Emery will go into the O'Brien sweepstakes.

This is somewhat surprising. I thought Smith would end up getting through the firing season.

Whoa...didn't expect that.

Come back to Tampa! I'd be so happy if Lovie replaced Sheridan.

Lovie is going to be an HC next year. He has far too good of a reputation. He is a great defensive mind who has been the part of a SuperBowl team as a DC and HC. He has established himself as one of the 10 best coaches in the NFL.

This was surprising, IMO.

Perfect fit or the Eagles IMO.

Wouldn't mind him, but it looks like we're all in the Kelly Sweepstakes.

I could see Lurie jumping all over that, also about every other job in the NFL. Wouldn't surprise me if somebody who thinks they are safe right now gets fired to try and bring in Lovie.

I think we're in the college coach sweepstakes for sure - whether it's just Kelly is unknown at the moment.

Its Kelly and O'Brien for sure, Sark maybe but I wouldn't like it at all.

There's a Bill O'Brien sweepstakes? I honestly don't understand how one season as a coordinator for New England (of all places, that history hasn't been good) and one year as a HC in a really down Big 10 makes you such a hot commodity.
