This is a good opportunity for us to see how Trestman responds in a true crisis.

    I don't know how the season could get much worse than this. Every season has its share of adversity, but the bottom has pretty much fallen out this year with the injuries to key players - including Cutler going down to serious injury. The situation was already bad enough with the roster problems Emery inherited from the Jerry Angelo years of atrophy of talent.

    I wouldn't wish this situation on any Bears coach, especially a guy in his 1st season as an NFL head coach.

    But since we're in crisis-mode anyway, it will be a fascinating opportunity to see how Marc Trestman reacts. It would take a miracle to do much of anything good with the remaining set of healthy survivors that we have left to play. Guys who are marginal (at best) to be in the NFL a year from now, are getting playing time. We even lost our starting QB and, McCown, an old guy who was an out-of-work NFL player - a high school football coach - is now our starting QB.

    If Trestman can make some significant positive adjustments under these circumstances, it will be very impressive. I don't see how it's possible, but you never know. Wouldn't it be outrageous if went into Lambeau after this bye week and beat the Packers? I can't wait so see how Trestman reacts while under extreme pressure here.

    Emery also. he's going go into his 3rd offseason, right now he's hitting about .500, w/the first fail possibly happening b/c of lack of prep time and having to rely on the prev regime and coaching staff. If he has another offseason like this past one, then he'll be able to field a more complete time then the previous 2 years.

    I think Trestmmans' already been under pressure. And the O has been performing well. Musch better than I expected with so many new pieces and a new ssytem. When have we put up so many points in a season (so far)? Who in their right mind would have thought McCown could have come in and played so well? How did he perform coming in under Martz? Tice?

    I'm interested in seeing what he does this off-season as well. Does he fire Tucker? How does he (and Emery) fix our floundering D?

    That is an outstanding point. I really had not thought about that one, but it's a great point. Especially in regards to coaching moves. Lovie would be SO indecisive in making coaching moves. I wonder if Trestman will be more decisive? I sure hope so.

    I still think that his 2012 draft was a Lovie Smith draft to be honest. Remember we had no scouting staff and Phil was stuck with Lovie for the year.

    I agree JPosh, but next year we'll have a better idea.

    I remember when Jauron kept John Shoop. I think that Tucker is gone after this season.

    I wouldn't be surprised if this happened. They are certainly playing with a lot of injuries, but they are also the reason for our last two losses.

    I think Tucker will be given another chance, you can't really gage the defense as whole with key members missing but it will interesting to see what kind of adjustments Tucker make the rest of the season with the players we have left (will we see more rookies get playing time, will there be new rotations etc..)......this upcoming offseason will tell a lot on how our defense will look next season, but the good thing is we have GM who's a scout at heart that will get the players we need in next year's draft for the defense.

    Tucker will get another year.

    Injuries all over the defense, relying on 2nd and 3rd stringers..... Stars you expected to perform being almost invisible..... No matter how great of a coach you are, that is hard to over come
