Seifert: "Sunday could be Lovie's final game with the team"
Detroit isn't going to roll over for us. They would love to kill our 2012 season, in front of their fans.
LINK to the article We know the Bears must win this game to get in the playoffs. Do they need to win in order to save coach Lovie Smith's job as well?
A loss would leave the Bears out of the playoffs for the fifth time in six seasons since they reached the Super Bowl in 2006. They would become just the second team in the 23-year history of this playoff structure to miss out on the playoffs after a 7-1 start, and at best Smith would be looking at a lame duck contract for 2013.
We have no idea what the McCaskey family and general manager Phil Emery are thinking, but the possibility exists that Sunday could be Smith's final game with the team.
