Disagree. Mike Brown has done nothing to prove he can take this franchise any further than it's gone. What about when AJ, Atkins, and others reach free agency? Will we keep them? I'm not convinced. I don't trust him. The Bears fired Lovie Smith, who was 81-63 with a Super Bowl appearance. A much better resume than Marvin. But Mike would never think about firing after a year like this, or even a 6-10 7-9 year. Average is good enough for him. This franchise has reached its ceiling. I'd love to be wrong. But I don't see it.
