Two years ago, it was the same scenario. Lovie was on the hot seat, but the Bears made the playoffs and he not only was his job saved, he got a contract extension. The Bears only have to beat the lowly Lions this Sunday, and they are in as a wild-card. Even if they lose in the first round, McCaskey won't fire Lovie after making the playoffs. Face it, he will be around at least one more season.
One more season of him standing on the sidelines with that bewildered look on his face.
