    Do you all know our new coach Trestman played for Vikes and was even assistant coach for them. He also grew up in Minnesota being a huge Minnesota fan and was coached under famous head coach Bud Grant. I'm amazed none of reporters haven't asked him this, but that's to be expected with todays reporters they only know about today and not what happen yesterday.

    Also little tidbit Bud Grant coached in the CFL and had a successful coaching career in the NFL. Weird how history is going to repeat itself but this time in Chitown...

    Also Bud Grant had a successful career in CFL now that's scary because look at Marc T career it's almost spooky similar.

    Another bit of CFL/NFL trivia ...

    Bud Grant was hired by Jim Finks - another CFL/NFL story. Finks played for, coached and eventually ran the Calgary Stampeders as GM while Grant was coach of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Finks ended up as GM of the Bears and is credited by many as the real architect of the 85 Bears team.

    Forgot to add ...
