Trestman, Marc 1

John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

The late news for the Chicago Bears is that they have named Marc Trestman of the Montreal Alouettes out of the CFL as their newest head coach. Trestman has been seen as a quarterback guru as he has prepared several of them for the NFL Draft including Jason Campbell, Jimmy Clausen, and most intriguing of all, Jay Cutler to name a few.

With a partnership between Cutler and Trestman, this could be just what Jay has needed/asked for, and with this partnership it will refute the old theory of new regimes mean new quarterbacks. It shall be interesting to see who Trestman brings in with his coaching staff  especially on the defensive side of the ball to the windy city to say the least.

Trestman’s record in the CFL was 59-31, and won two grey cups, lost another one,  but made the CFL playoffs all five years in Montreal. He also has been a position coach in the NFL, even offensive coordinator for the Oakland Raiders and helped Rich Gannon win the NFL MVP award and then go to the Super Bowl versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2002.

Only time will tell with this move, if it was smart and out of the box or was it a fool hardy move as the Bears couldn’t land the big catch hire, like some teams in years past.

Brandon Marshall Tells Rich Eisen He Hasn't Spoken To Jay Cutler

During a recent appearance on ' The Rich Eisen Show', former Chicago Bears and current New York Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall was asked about his relationship with his old quarterback, Jay Cutler. Marshall, who has zero chill, replied that he had not spoken to Cutler in "two years." Naturally, Eisen was shocked and mentioned that they were teammates just a season ago. Marshall essentially confirmed that they were not talking off the field during his last year in Chicago, but ultimately wished Cutler well.
