No one in Chicago longing for return of coach Lovie Smith

It's a pity Sunday's Bears-Buccaneers showdown can't be resolved like a Brandon Marshall Twitter war.

A ring, some gloves, $25,000 in prize money to the winner and 100 hours of community service to the loser. Lovie Smith and Marc Trestman mano-a-mano in the middle of Soldier Field like Dempsey and Tunney back in 1927. Who can forget the Long Count fight and why is it that clock operation and time management issues have been a problem at Soldier Field for so many years?

Maybe a duel between two middle-aged men isn't enough. How about general manager Phil Emery and Bucs counterpart Jason Licht join their coaches and make it a tag team steel cage wrestling match?
