Watch Marc Trestman’s Montreal Alouttes in 2009 Grey Cup


I was digging around on YouTube and found this clip from the 97th Grey Cup between new Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman’s Montreal Alouttes and the Saskatchewan Roughriders.  It’s a pretty good clip, including an Andy Fantuz sighting.  Remember him Bears fans?

You’ll note that in the CFL, the teams have three downs to convert a first down, so at one point, when they say “it’s a big third down conversion” to NFL fans, that means a fourth down conversion.  That tells me Trestman is willing to take some calculated risks.   

Hopefully you’ve watched whole clip before reaching this point, otherwise, I’ll give you a spoiler alert – Trestman’s team wins in dramatic come-from-behind fashion.
