    If Lovie was the coach he would have called a timeout on top of a timeout giving us a penalty.

    Lovie wouldn't havebeen able to call a timeout because he would have lost them all on bad red flags.

    I'm just glad we have a head coach that understands clock management and understands preparing and strategy. If nothing else, this should give us all confidence that when he makes a "head shaker" decision, that there might just be more to his thought process than we (or the announcers) are aware of. I appreciate him sharing these thoughts with us fans; adds credibility to his actions.

    Didn't we hire a "stats man" in the off season? The answer is yes. Makes me think some of these decisions could have a direct tie to some percentage decisions Trestman is describing.

    Me too. The decision scared the hell outta me at the time but I'm so glad it worked as designed.

    Trestman is the smartest coach Bears have or will ever have in my lifetime. He thinks more about ever piece of minutia in this game than people even knew possibly existed in football.

    MT still has some tactical refinements to improve on ("getting the CFL out of his system" as our canadian friend billatter put it) but he's already a helluva better HC guru than Lovie ever could be. Can you imagine if Lovie and Tice were still running the show?

    W/all the D losses, plus Cutler going down, they'd be lucky to be .500

    I've always had faith in Trestman, but the game where he didn't start McCown and he didn't take the easy FG shook my trust in him. This post helps me "keep the faith". Definitely 1,000% better than Lovie.

    BUT so far it doesn't look like this same genius is put into the defense. I know, there are a lot of injuries, but in the beginning of the year the D was weak still. I hope something can be done with he D.

    Under the prior regime, with their "defense first, offensive-cluelessness" mentality and (lack of) ability, we would be 3-7 right now. Lot of football left to play.
