ESPN.com (http://www.kffl.com/link/9) reports Chicago Bears (http://www.kffl.com/team/11/nfl) head coach Lovie Smith (http://www.kffl.com/player/8316/nfl)'s agent expects the coach to return for the 2007 season without a new contract. Smith's agent, Frank Bauer, told ESPN's Chris Mortensen that talks between the two sides were at a "stalemate." Bauer said, "We're not close, we're not encouraged and based on where talks have gone recently, Lovie will be a free agent after next season."

Well tony I do not get it ether but if I was lovie I would get the best contract I could get before they start this next season. They have a actually medium to tough schedule compared to there last 2 easy seasons and if Lovie holds out and does not have a good season he could loose what he is worth now. But who knows, he might be throwing the number high because he might want to coach somewhere else in the NFL next year.

The Rooneys would not create this stuff....they always signed BC to a contract 2 years before the current one ended...but then again we are talking about the Bears.
