    Wanted McCoy too, but after finding out about Trestman I really started to like him and hope for the best

    Trestman has a lot of Pro experience, and was a championship winner in the CFL. Kelly has only college experience (only 4 years as HC), so ill take Trestman.

    I didnt care for the hire but after the fact I like the staff he decided to surround himself with. Also I like the accountability and hustle he is getting out of the players. Cant wait for the season to start so we can see how this all translates into Ws and beating the pack

    Hard to compare Philly and Chi, two different teams. I wanted Arians or McCoy myself, but I've been happy w/Trestman since his first introduction. For me he said all the right things. I think he and Emery will get along well and stay on message. Both want an open and cordial relationship w/the media and fans, which was a huge problem in the prev regime. Both are good communicators, and Both want to get the qb and the O fixed on this team w/out disturbing the current Def to much.

    This year is all about evaluating Cutler, and I'm not sure anyone, other then Arians, could have been a better evaluator of Cutler then Trestman, and that includes McCoy or Kelly. And if for some reason Cutler doesn't work out, I have more faith in Trestman to be able to target a college qb he can develop then I would any of the previous mentioned three and get the most out of him the quickest. I'm quite happy w/Trestman, and hearing Harbaugh(one in SF) say that a lot of what he does w/O came from his days in Oak w/Trestman has me even more excited.

    My top three was Mike McCoy, Brian Kelly or Jon Gruden, McCoy being my favorite choice.

    Wasn't too pleased when I first heard about the Trestman hiring but after I cooled down I realized that I'm just a fan and Phil Emery probably knows a lot more than I do.

    So I'm just gonna wait and be patient. Maybe in a couple of years we'll see if Trestman was the right choice in 2013. God I hope so.

    Anyway, Go Bears!!

    How many were happy with Long pick when it was 1st announced? Now how is that pick looking? Do we really still know what he's going to look like at the start of season we all hope so? Same for Trestman who lead #1 NFL offense to a SB I don't believe any of the others did correct me if I'm wrong. So I more than patient to wait for the season before he shows his hand. Not going to fret over only 30 plays total in 2 preseason games from the offense 1's at this point. From what I see so far just like Long I'm pleased as punch. Sure things can change but all signs so far still pointing to go because we haven't played 1 real game.

    It's interesting to think how others would have done for the Bears or how Trestman would've for others, but I'm perfectly happy with him so far.

    This pretty much sums up my feelings as well. There may be some bumps-in-the-road initially if Cutler is unable or unwilling to step up his play to fully run a Trestman offense. Jay will need to include the other weapons in this offense and make better decisions (fewer stupid ints, quit forcing everything to Marshall & get rid of the ball rather than taking unnecessary sacks). But I agree, with you that if for some reason Cutler doesn't work out, I too have faith in Trestman to be able to target a college QB he can develop. Trestman can do this better than the other coaches mentioned, and of course Lovie couldn't do this for us if his life depended on it.
