Well, he IS an odd guy, our Marc Trestman.
A skinny necked bad hair new-agey offensive guru guy brought here to Chicago, the City of Big Shoulders.
I mean, I'm still trying to buy into this new kind of defense-second Bears team... what choice do I have?
I read somewhere that Jay Cutler, with his massive contract, is the new Alfonso Soriano.
What did I ever get to do about Soriano?
The Bears payed a crapload of money to change.
And change's main ingredients would be a new GM (which... I'll never dislike anyone as much as Jerry Angelo in that job), a new coach, and a franchise qb.
And while most (at least I think it was most) Bear fans really liked the signing of Trestman... he's really a nerd, right?
But at first that really played well.
You saw possibility.
You saw... long passes.. like... other teams with... real offenses.
You saw... something smart happen in the locker room at the half: the Bears...made an adjustment and it worked!
I had to spend a bunch of time driving yesterday, and I was listening to sportstalk, which is where you reaaaallly get that Trestman has turned into a huge punchline.
The Score played some of his quotes that were both hilarious and horrifying.
It's so classic Chicago with pretty much anybody in sports - soon as you don't live up to expectations, man, it's right back to high school and here come those big seniors gonna pull your underwear up over your head and you can't fight back or it just gets worse.
Welll, that's what they do here
But what I really hope is that these guys figure it out.
That's what I'm waiting for.
Aren't you haunted by Aaron Rogers' "Relax" quote?
And then... the Packers figured it out.
WHY CAN'T MY FAVORITE TEAM DO THAT?
HEY TRESTMAN, UNTIL YOU FIGURE IT OUT, PLAN ON A WEDGIE EVERY TIME WE SEE YOU IN THE HALL.
