The CTL panel share their thoughts on the Bears hiring of Marc Trestman as the 14th head coach in franchise history - 1/16
Late last night around 1 in the morning mark Tressel was officially informed by Phil Emery. And he's a new coach in the Chicago -- best thing Bruce Berrian who spent about seven hours in the building yesterday even spent nine minutes meaning with Jay Cutler. But in the end which management gets the game your thoughts mr. -- I think it there was little surprising if you told me back in December 31 amendment hired mark trust I think we'd all be a little bit shocked. Com but once -- started to see. -- meshed with Phil Emery throughout the process started hearing his name. Eight hour interview initially maybe Phil Emery made up his mind -- that point I think that this is an unorthodox move I think it's gonna require a little bit leap of faith. Home they turn down the NFL coach of the year resilience that's -- guy you know I wrote and believe. From that she's hired but that doesn't mean that you can have an open mind. The mark -- can do a good job with the Bears I think you have to reserve judgment. But tomorrow's a big day for him he can influence a lot of people. I think -- a lot of pressure on him but I think there's more pressure on Phil Emery this has been a very bold general manager. He's been on the job -- one year there's nothing he's done that hasn't been bolt. Trade for Brandon Marshall drafted Shea McClellan. Which is a bit of a reach me look really guys available fired attendance six coach and now we hired a guy from the CF well. Over the NFL coach of the year as some other guys so Hillary has a lot riding on this and well. Does they got their -- -- a guy that's what they want. But take about a from the player perspective right now businesses and to me but Joseph gives you meant to coach us and Washington. Hall of Famer three Super Bowl trophies we still -- questions. We still a question is going to be a two way street for this entire off season. Because trust you have to sell himself to the players players have to sell their abilities -- new coach to take a while this can be up. But at what they got. Cap was in office and got and one West Coast system systematically. Matt Forte -- -- in this office Jay Cutler he allows himself because it. Coach Tressel has to coach Jay very hard his -- to get better mechanics is more -- point. They -- -- universities this is the precision based offense and I read it in Denver. But this is not a guy that's been known for accuracy in Chicago that he's got to get better and he's got along so I better too. And I think something he said David caught my attention I think this is something that -- keep in mind because I know a lot of people were surprised by the pick you said you were -- a pick. But you brought it up to the same thing -- Phil Emery is the kind of guy. You were saying you need to go get a big writers here he did it. You need to get a new coach who was just tennis six he did it so if you're going to back those decisions. You need to have faith in the guy that he's he's done a thorough search that's what you want -- that this is the right decision there's no reason to not believe in him if he believed in what he's done so. -- here's what Jay Cutler said to the Bears website it's a great hire I couldn't be more excited. I've talked to guys around the league I did my own research out of -- an offensive mind. Great person a guy's going to come and hopefully lead as many victories in the country understands quarterback. You understand your thought process in the minds of quarterback to what we have to go through going to be quarterback friendly system that can't wait to get started.
