If Lovie stays, he will keep Tice another year.
I think that if Lovie stays, nothing changes. Not Tice. Nothing.
And I think the Bears will keep Lovie if the Bears get into the playoffs. 2013 = 2012. Webb & the oline boys will be thrilled. K. Davis & Spaeth will too.
Most importantly, Tice will have another year to refine the "Hester Package" for us. Finally, in 2013 it will be (finally) unleashed on the world, in all its awesome splendor.
