3. Good-bye Trestman
Say good-bye to the Marc Trestman era in his hometown. The Bears ought to save the airfare and just fire him right there at TCF Bank Stadium. If’s sort of ironic that Trestman’s Chicago Bears career will likely end in the same city where we first started to see Trestman’s warts. It was December 1st in Minnesota last season where Marc Trestman out-thought himself and attempted a 47-yard field goal on second down in overtime. Robbie Gould missed the attempt and the Bears eventually suffered a devastating loss at the hands of the last place Vikings blowing a 10-point 4th quarter lead. You could point to that game as the beginning of the end of the Trestman era.
Trestman was brought in to fix Jay Cutler and benching Cutler was Trestman waving the white flag, indicating he couldn’t do it. Trestman was brought to Chicago as a “champion” and a leader, but he’s been neither. The team lived up to Trestman’s introductory press conference misspeak, when he said they’d be “selfish and undisciplined.”
