Lovie's glass is "half full"

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

Bears coach Lovie Smith doesn't feel any extra pressure right now, even though his team has missed the postseason the last three seasons.

"Every year, every day I've been on the job, I felt like I needed to get the job done then," he said. "Nothing has changed."

Smith, though, didn't begrudge the questions about his job security.

"We haven't made the playoffs in three years," he said. "Normally, if you haven't done that, there's rumblings going on.

"But Ted Phillips and the McCaskey family have been nothing but supportive to me.
My glass is half full."

Smith seemed completely at ease during his two interviews, which covered about a half hour combined. He dodged questions about specific free agents -- to avoid any concerns about tampering -- but he answered everything else.

He also displayed some confidence in 2010.

"I'm excited about this opportunity that we have. And when we do well this year, everything will take care of itself," he said. "It's as simple as that."

What exactly is his glass half full of? Jack D?

"I'm excited about this opportunity that we have. And when we do well this year, everything will take care of itself," he said. "It's as simple as that."

He said the exact same thing last year. At least he has stopped saying "Trust me!"
