Sunday’s matchup between the Bears and Saints at Soldier Field will be a battle of ‘genius’ head coaches.
Back on Sept. 16, Bears tight end Martellus Bennett stated on “The Jay Cutler Show” that Marc Trestman was a genius head coach, while also comparing him to Willy Wonka.
"If you really look at Coach, he's a genius,” Bennett said. “And a lot of times when you're around really, really smart people, you don't really understand them. I thought Willy Wonka was brilliant. I mean, he had all kinds of candy. Who doesn't like chocolate and candies. Everybody wanted a Gobstopper. Ya know? I just think he's brilliant."
More recently, following the Saints big victory over the Miami Dolphins on Monday Night Football, New Orleans running back Darren Sproles proclaimed that head coach Sean Payton was also a genius.
Which ‘genius’ head coach will prevail this Sunday in a battle of playoff-hopeful teams?
