Lovie Smith: Still An Idiot
After [intlink id="13" type="category"]Chicago Bears[/intlink] coach [intlink id="296" type="category"]Lovie Smith[/intlink] led his team to the NFC North title and NFC Championship game last season, I began to develop some respect for him.
Since then, he’s done nothing but prove my initial feeling about him correct. He’s a complete idiot.
Mostly, it’s been his adamant defense of quarterback [intlink id="405" type="category"]Jay Cutler[/intlink]. You know, the guy who quit on the Bears in the second half of the aforementioned NFC Championship game and stood on the sidelines breathing through his mouth?
Now, Smith is wondering why no one questioned the toughness of Green Bay Packers cornerback [intlink id="143" type="category"]Charles Woodson[/intlink] and receiver [intlink id="76" type="category"]Donald Driver[/intlink] for not finishing the Super Bowl.
“[Woodson] walked off, and he was standing on the sideline,” Smith said today, per Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times. “Donald Driver walked off, and he stood on the sideline. But we’re not questioning them. I never question them. Totally off base for that to happen.”
Let me map this out for you, you monumental douche.
Woodson had a broken collarbone. Driver had a high ankle sprain, which kept him from working out until several weeks after the game.
Cutler, on the other hand, had a knee injury — one similar to the knee injury [intlink id="234" type="category"]New Orleans Saints[/intlink] quarterback Drew Brees played almost the entire 2010 season on. In addition, Cutler was seen strolling around Beverly Hills like nothing was wrong a couple days later.
Then there’s the question of leadership. Most teams get it from their quarterback.
Had [intlink id="25" type="category"]Aaron Rodgers[/intlink] hurt his vagina and not played the second half of the Super Bowl, Smith would have a point.
As it were, he just reinforced the notion that he’s truly a moron.
Well played, Lovie.
