Wow, thanks for the quantum leap back to 2002-2004. Beutjer wasn't perfect by any means and made plenty of head-scratching mistakes, but the fact that Dustin Ward, Chris Pazan, and Brad Bower started games over him is such an explanation of the end of the Turner era. None of those other three should've started on a MAC team.
Also, don't take Lovie's friskiness personally. Your question was perfectly reasonable and should have given him an opportunity for a nice quote for the paper. He's never been one to enjoy press conferences though, and I remember towards the end of his Bears tenure he seemed to get more quick and short with the media up there too.
