Chicago Bears: Job Security for Major Coaching Positions
Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images

Stop me if this sounds familiar: The Chicago Bears have a great record and are in charge in the NFC North. Last season it was 7-3, needing just a few more wins to secure playoff contention.

This season, it was 7-1, needing once again just a few wins against the Vikings, Seahawks and maybe one against Green Bay for the Bears to win the NFC North and secure a playoff spot.

The disparity in what was supposed to happen since that 7-1 start this season and what has actually taken place is why this article is being written.

If the Bears take care of business, beating Seattle and Minnesota, then this discussion doesn't need to be had. However, since the Bears have won just one game in their last six, there are some seats getting very hot in Chicago, seats that haven't been hot for quite some time.

For Mike Tice, Rod Marinelli, Dave Toub and Lovie Smith, Chicago is no longer such a happy place, and everyone is looking over their shoulder now to see what is going to happen next, especially if the Bears miss the playoffs yet again this season.
