wow.
Few things.
One. Norm Chow.
I still haven't figured out WHY he hasn't gotten an HC position yet. The giants may be pretty good with him at the helm. because honestly.

Two.
Ron Rivera is 1/2 to blame for the Superbowl And 2005 vs Carolina losses.
Cover 3 was not the way to contain steve smith.
Deep Cover 2 was not the way to contain wayne, harrison and manning.
They played ultra-conservative, didn't prepare, and looked exactly the same as they did against a superior team. They were overmatched statistically. But in both games, they let bad coaching dictate the outcome of the game. Because from a purely game-wise standpoint, both games could have gone the either way.

And lastly
one play can change a whole gameplan. if one play causes you to lose faith in a particular element of your team. you will gameplan around your handicap at that exact moment to prevent further weakness.

Another blown coverage like that (which could've easily happened with young safeties such as Manning and Harris, neither of which has played more than 2 years in the NFL) would've likely led to another TD, so the Bears (probably Lovie's call to switch) decided that instead of gambling on their safeties, they would gamble on their front 7 and the weather to force the Colts into mistakes (which they actually did), and contain the Colts' offense as much as possible (the Colts' offense scored 16 points the rest of the way on a TD and 3 FGs).
The scoreboard wasn't reflective of how the game was played. By allowing Peyton to check down, yes, they might have reduced the possible # of points by forcing field goals, but they also allowed him to run the clock, and wear out their defense. It shouldve been the other way around. They shouldve dictated the tempo with their run game, instead they allowed Peyton to dictate the game. That was a mistake. And also, Peyton has a history of not playing well when being blitzed. That weather was the perfect oppurtunity to blitz him and with less risk. Like I said, yes, it led to one blown play, but I feel that it was a mistake to abandon the philosophy just because of one play. My belief is that they shouldve continued to force Peyton to make the difficult throw all game rather than give him the option of checking down. Maybe it was Lovie's call, we don't know. But whoever made that call, made a mistake in my opinion.

To me, that saidthat his defense would most likely resemble a Jim Johnson defense (obviously with his own little tweaks and variations) if given the oppurtunity as a Head Coach somewhere.
To be honest, I can't look up the exact link or anything, but I do recall some credible Bear posters on this forum saying that he said he would run Cover 2. Shoot, if he doesn't run a pure Cover 2, I actually wouldn't be opposed to seeing him as the next Giants HC. Thats the one thing that scares him away for me personally. I don't want to see the Cover 2 in New York.

I think soon though he will be given his chance.
I think racism will play a part in his career. There are a lot of owners who simply won't give him a chance.

I think the ranks of assistants has been plundered quite a bit the last 2 years and I don't see too many coordinators who are ready for the next step. I think the #1 coordinator who will get another shot is Martz. The players love playing for him, he's been a real winner in this league, he is a decent drafter and know how to develope players. His health drove him out of HCing but he's healthy again and any team that wants to be a contender should look seriously at hiring him.
