Was Trestman the pick of the litter?

    Trestman is genius and he can't be compared with anyone out there. He changed football up here and could do it down there. The CFL has grown by leaps and bounds and is not that far off the NFL, of course it will never rival with it. 1200 players get cut every year form the NFL camps and that does not mean they are all useless. And with a new deal with TSN for about 250m for 5 years is a 1st for the league and will help raise the salary cap. Let say if troy smith happens to replace A.C in montrteal and becomes a great CFL QB, he will be making 1/2 mil per season, not to bad. And with updates to stadiums in BC, Edmonton, montreal, new one in winnipeg, new one in hamilton next year also a new one in ottawa next year. And the rest are in planning stages. Things are looking good for the old girl. Just have to get Toronto out of the sky dome.. But I will predict if they buy into trestman things are going to get interesting and alot of wins for the bears.

    So far I'm in to Trestman. I like the things he's doing, I liked seeing Ditka invited to watch practice and speak to the team. I think he's going about things the right way, I hope it translates to the players and we get some big wins and some Super Bowls!

    I'm digging what Trestman is doing... I wanted Arians (what a turnaround as an interim HC) and Gruden (for obvious reasons)...

    Honestly I had no idea who Trestman was. Honestly, I wasn't paying attention to who the QB coach for the Lions, Cardinals and Raiders was in the late 90s early 00s... however... after the team signed him and I did a bunch of reading on the guy... he's impressive. And his daughters are hot. It calmed me down and I am no longer freaking out. lol

    I will say this, I'm happy they didn't go w/a ex nfl great since their history of replicating that same magic is very low.

    I'm expecting a slow start, but I'm hoping it all picks up. The schedule is just brutal and I wish the new regime had been handed something a little less difficult...no doubt this is going to be a trial by fire from game 1 on.

    yeah, first half of the schedule is brutal, but the second half is much easier. So, if they start to click by the bye week, things should get better towards the end. Hypothetically, if they start the season say 2-6, but finish 7-1, even if we have a 9-7 record, that is going to be some great momentum going into 2014.

    It's too early for me to judge Trestman, but he was the top of my list when they were interviewing.

    If Goodell continues his conversion of the NFL to NPL (national pussy league) I'll come over to watch real men hit and play real football in the CFL.

    Continually stunned that so many people are willing to throw RG under the bus, but they ignore that he didn't start making these major revamps until after the lawsuit came into being; so why isn't it the retiree's fault? What would you expect a billion dollar industry to do when it's facing a huge lawsuit b/c of how it treats it's employees? Continue to mistreat it's employees and face future similar lawsuits and similar huge losses?

    He doesn't have to give such crazy amount fine to Bostic but at same time say spectacular hit on his web site. He could hand out fines that are within reason to appease lawsuit BS without screwing the players. Law doesn't look at cost handed out they want to see if you took steps to address the issues. If he really wants to address head tackle problem take the weapon away that has induce this and take the hard shell off the helmet and go to boxer style headpiece. Some rugby players use soft style helmet for protection and not for a weapon. Guys would think twice before leading with their head, technique and form tackling would come back instead of torpedoing hit style.
