A day after the final 2012-13 regular season game, many head coaches have already been fired by their respective teams. Yes, Black Monday has finally arrived and it’s never good news for neither head coaches nor general managers.

One of the coaches that were fired on Black Monday happens to be Chicago Bears’ leader Lovie Smith. After nine seasons with the Chicago Bears, coach Smith was released due to his inability to control the offensive side of the ball for the team. The Chicago Bears started the season with a 7-1 record, but missed this year’s playoffs after spiraling out of control offensively and ending the season as a 10-6 team.

The release of Lovie Smith has many Bears’ players in shock, one of them being wide receiver and return specialist, Devin Hester. After hearing that his longtime coach in Lovie Smith had been fired, 30-year-old Hester is now thinking of retiring from the game.

It certainly wasn’t a surprise that the players would be opposed to the firing of Lovie Smith. It goes to show you just how much respect the Bears’ players had for their coach. Nonetheless, Hester might be jumping the gun a bit too fast in terms of his retirement thoughts.

Devin Hester has regressed mightily this season by managing to only grab 23 receptions for 242 yards and one touchdown. Come to think of it, maybe it is time to retire.

  1. Cutler should also call it quits, the guy is “softer ” than a baby’s @ss.

    He hasn’t the mindset to lead, and that’s even with the “bromance ” he has with that dumb @ss, Brian Urlacher, who is now on the decline.

      For the Bears to start the season in such good shape only to end the year with a 10-6 record has to be truly disappointing. For a stretch, the Bears had the best defense in the entire league.

  2. You’d think Hester would be a little more upset about the NFL changing the kickoff rule than he would be about losing his coach.

    • CDR says:

      Devin Hester’s career is winding down and his illustrious career regarding kickoff returns are most likely over. Lovie Smith’s firing really touched Hester, there’s no question.

  3. **** all of you haters, you are not true Bears fans if u talk to one of our best players like that. I’ve been a fan for 39 years and I think Ditka would even tell ya to **** off so from me, my dad and all the other true Bears fans, we love ya Devin and I love Lovie Smith too. He will get picked up and I hope where ever he goes, he does outstanding just to shove it up all ur ******* ashamed that u call yourselves Bears fans go **** off already we don’t want ya!

    • CDR says:

      Now, that’s a die-hard Bears fan for you. Thanks for the comment Martin and way to show your true Bears’ colors.
