He's failed to develop Jason Worilds and Chris Carter. Both are now wasted picks and we have to again spend high draft picks on an outside Linebacker to play opposite Woodley. Instead of addressing Safety in the first round of this draft, we're going to have to now draft someone like Jordan, Okafor or Van Noy and start over.

While it might be unfair to say he "hasn't done anything", he hasn't accomplished nearly the same amount of things that Lovie Smith has done and accomplished. Butler hasn't shown he can be a defensive coordinator in the NFL, and Lovie Smith has shown he can - successfully. He can also take his teams defense to number one in defensive touchdowns.
