Firing on Bears who need to be fired

Hanie might not have been a total disaster if Matt Forte had stayed healthy. Angelo can wear that, too, especially after his backup running back mentally and physically choked the week before. Is it just me, or is there a pattern here with Angelo’s personnel decisions?

Tell you what, if Cutler or Forte tries to play Christmas night against the Packers in a game that doesn’t matter, then a lot more people need to be fired.

Actually, a lot more people need to be fired anyway. Mike Martz, for instance, I’m done with him, and I don’t think I’m alone. He has yet to do anything good with a quarterback behind Cutler.

The Bears have to realize how stupid they look with an offensive coordinator whose playbook is so dense and complicated that a veteran can’t pick it up in five days the way it works around the rest of the league.

Roy Williams can go, too. Big mouth, little production. Eliminate any vestige of what Martz wanted.

I would love to ditch the entire offensive line because everybody’s playing out of position. At least, that’s the way it looks and feels. A guard is playing center, a center is playing guard, a guard is playing right tackle, a right tackle is playing left tackle, I have no idea what the other guy is good at, but he’s a backup for a left guard who was drafted and paid like a left tackle. Connect the dots, people. I dare you.

The next coach who puts Devin Hester at receiver gets fired, but only because they won’t let me hook the sucker up to electrified razor wire.

You know who else I want to fire? Fans and so-called experts who shovel the insulting garbage that Lovie Smith’s teams come up big when things seem to be at their worst. Wise up, people. Smith’s team made this mess with an embarrassing loss to Tyler Palko and a choke in Denver.

Smith’s team didn’t rally Sunday. Smith’s team choked in the second half of the most important game of the season.

Again.

Smith’s team came up lame when excellence was demanded.

Again.

Smith’s coaching staff got pantsed when brilliance was necessary.

Again.

Sunday’s mess was fitting for this season’s ugly turn. So much was exposed -- no, confirmed. That might make all of this feel worse.

You know what would take the edge off this Bears’ death spiral? About 1,000 pounds of pot, that’s what.
