    BREAKING: #Alouettes fire Dan Hawkins as head coach, GM Jim Popp will take over the role.

    While that sucks for them, any time a guy is hard to replace, that's usually a good thing.

    Hawkins was brutal. A.C for some reason could not hit a barn door. Pratices were in a disaray, huge difference fron trestman.

    It is good to see he was hard to replace.

    From what I hear I like the style Trestman brings to the table. He seems very invested in it and players seem to buy in. We will see come September, after that what he did prior will not matter one bit.

    The only surprise is that OC Mike Miller wasn't shown the door with Hawkins. He's been atrocious and AC has been told to coach him up. The body language from the players on the sidelines says everything. It's like Miller has leporsy. To put it into context, Trestman = Einstein while Hawkins = Gomer Pyle.

    BTW, another thread alluded to Trestman as "mad scientist". To give you an idea how creative he can be, he exploited CFL rules to kick a pass for a first down off of a fake field goal attempt. The guys he assigned to catch the ball? Two linebackers. Can't do that in the NFL, I realize, but it does illustrate his creativity and his guts in taking risks. Enjoy the experience -- the Bears fans will have a fun year, win or lose.

    For those interested in the play:

    Having a top HC is SOOOOO important. I hope Trestman is that guy. If that is the case, we will win several games on just that. Going to be an exciting year. I will miss Lovie sleeping on the sidelines though. Trestman looks to be pretty high energy out there. I think it will be contageous. I like it.

    For those of you who know of Hawkins, a bit more info on the story. After being told to make few changes and don't fix what ain't broke, he threw out the Trestman playbook entirely. When advice was offered, it was ignored. When things blew up, it was all on him.

    If u look at him as the QB of the whole frockin team - duh - gee - yeah he IS THAT important . They weren't terrible tonight but there's still miles and miles to go . 8-8 is all I'm expecting this yr . New offense new coaches etc ...... be realistic . Hopefully they do worse so we can get a higher draft choice . Yeah , antithesis of real Bears fan thinking ... but I'm looking at a few years down the road . And a few really high draft choices could really do wonders for this teams future . We're rebuilding - whether some of u want to admit it or not .

    One thing I really liked about what I saw tonight In Trestman's offense was that any time they were in scoring range, they always had at least one receiver attacking the endzone with their route. It's risky to ask your QB to fire it into the lower percentage plays on a consistent basis, but paired with an offense where the other routes are of the high-efficiency, move the chains variety - the reward level is very tempting. Hopefully, they find the right balance as the unit grows together, but I hope it is a very aggressive gameplan week-in and week-out.

    It seems like the non local media seems to view Chip Kelly and Marc Trestman as enigmas. The obvious questions of how Chip Kelly can adapt to the NFL loom over his head, but even while acknowledging the immense resume of Trestman, and complimenting him for his work with the 49ers and Raiders (it makes sense that he was running the show in Oakland, because, I forgot the HC's name, but he was a ****** moron), they still ask "how will he adapt to the NFL?" He's not trying to reinvent the wheel like Chip Kelly seems to, and yes, he will have some adjusting, but he has guys that have already worked with his version of an NFL offense, and they've been running successful offenses too, last time I checked on the Saints...Also, I keep forgetting our DC's name, but I remember reading before the hire that a successful season in Chicago will likely earn him a HC spot somewhere. This coaching staff is the one part of the organization I'm probably overly hyped on.
