After hearing the press conference with new Bears head coach Marc Trestman, did you feel refreshed? To finally hear a coach for the Chicago Bears not shove bullshit in our faces, did it seem awesome? At least in my lifetime, I’ve never seen anything like this. I’ve never heard a coach for the Bears be forward by saying “We have a sense of urgency to win”. Did Lovie Smith ever mention that there was a sense of urgency to win? The answer is no. Our good friend Chucky was the one who noted that Lovie always told the media that some games weren’t “must win” but after it was too late, then it was all of a sudden that way.
From what I heard, Trestman also said that his priority would be to protect Jay Cutler. Basically, he’s implying that he is aware that the offensive line sucks and that he wants a new line that can actually protect Cutler so he can have more than two seconds to run the ball. Anybody else agree with that too?
Before all of this, it was “we have a good football team” and “we like the players we have now”. In addition to all of this, the entire Lovie regime of assistant coaches are gone. I was fine with Marinelli staying but he decided to leave on his own terms. You see Bears fans? This is how franchises build teams that win a Super Bowl. The Packers let Favre go and they won the Super Bowl a few years later with Rodgers. The Steelers put in Ben Rapistberger after Tommy Maddox started to suck and they have won two Super Bowls in three chances since 2006.
Listening to Emery and Trestman can make anybody jump on board with what they do and as a Bears fan, I am finally feeling good about the future of this team.
