2. Lovie Smith, Chicago Bears

2012 Record: 8-5

Season High Point: Commanding 34-18 win over the Cowboys in Dallas in Week 4.

Season Low Point: The 21-14 loss they suffered in Minnesota on Sunday.

Outlook: Shocked to see Lovie Smith listed here? If Chicago somehow misses the playoffs this season, after their 8-3 start, Smith’s name could be on the chopping block. The Bears finished the year 1-5 and missed the playoffs by a game in 2011, albeit without Jay Cutler in the lineup in those six games. This year? There’d be no excuse for such a collapse. Remember, Chicago has a new GM in Phil Emery. He doesn’t have the same longtime history with Smith as former GM Jerry Angelo. The Bears didn’t come prepared to play in Minnesota on Sunday. There’s no excuse for that.
