His face did not look like that of a head coach who was on the verge of being escorted out of the city.
Instead, Lovie Smith looked as if nothing were wrong. As if the news/talk/rumors/suggestions/demands for his departure from Chicago aren't orbiting around him like planets. As if the new reality of his possible end game here either doesn't phase him or he simply doesn't care.
To the man who displays the same amount of facial expressions during a game as Kristen Stewart in a photo shoot (one), the fact that this is happening to Lovie -- the fact that most of the discussion this week has been about him and his limits and flaws as the head coach of the Bears, seems so trivial to him. So next year.
