Chicago Bears fans react to new coach

The Chicago Bears franchise is hiring Marc Trestman to be its new head coach.

Trestman has spent the past five seasons as head coach of the Canadian Football League’s Montreal Alouettes.

He led that team to two consecutive championships in 2009 and 2010.

Before his CFL career, Trestman worked as an offensive coordinator with five NFL teams.

He’s credited with improving quarterbacks like Steve Young, Rich Gannon, and Jake Plummer.

Trestman also helped Bears quarterbacks Jay Cutler and Jason Campbell prepare for the draft before they entered the league.

But despite his lengthy NFL resume’, it’s his CFL background that’s raising some eyebrows.

“I don’t know anything about him,” said Bears fan Bruce Bilek.  “It should be good for (Cutler) hopefully.  I mean we’ve needed an offensive guy for a long time.”

“I think leadership skills are apparent in leaders in any organization,” said Bears fan Karren Boatner.  “All it is, is a transfer of learning the ins and outs of the new organization.  I feel that if he is strong, he will bring those skills with him.”

“He may not be fit for the National Football League,” said Bears fan Nick Meza.  “Then again, it depends on his tactics and the way he does things.”

    It doesn't matter who the coach is, as long as they don't get themselves a
    offensive line that know how tro block.

      Cutler can't get the job done when he's running for his life as soon as the ball hits his hands. I've seen games where the only reason they won was because of Cutler. And the 2012 season is the first where they have had a good wideout.
