Now this firing I do NOT agree with. Lovie Smith, coach of the Chicago Bears has just been fired. This is the biggest surprise of all the coaches who are being let go today.

The Buffalo Bills also just announced they are letting coach Chan Gailey go. That move does not come as a surprise as the Bills once again were a non factor in the AFC.
