Biggs shares his thoughts on Trestman
Bring in a man who broke the story early this morning that Tribune's Brad Biggs. Big -- when you hear that mark -- with getting this. Gig and it's one of the more coveted jobs in the National Football League were you surprised were you stunned or not I think it makes sense. -- it's done because it it was a situation cap where they're did -- some ball goes. -- around Grossman's name especially. What to do Jimmy Jackson. Reports. Remodel we can go and so you knew that the guys have had some momentum. In the process and it's it's going to be very yeah. -- very interesting I think the work that needs to do with the offense and then. What ultimately. They decide to do in terms of the direction for the defense this is going to. Either of the we are fabulous successor or this kid. To -- spectacularly. But. One way or another I think it's going to be exciting and and I think this -- -- I -- because they've got -- a coach was an offensive background. These it is the fans have -- during the Lovie Smith era. The picture -- -- the Dave Wannstedt era the never saw consistent offensive football and now. The hope is that as a coach in place. Who can -- produce that. If -- is David great job breaking the story last night early this morning or 1 AM. You know a big part of it is obviously because of the staffing decisions that are to come there's a feeling that you know mark trust and might. Be inclined more inclined adversaries might have been to keep rod mentality keeps on the defensive staff intact there's been some other moves today can just bring us up to date. I'm more staff moves have been made and how those affected this decision. Yet to -- to this point. We know -- that and homework has been brought in from the New Orleans Saints. As the offensive coordinator and offensive line coach would signal one keeping and that is that. The mark -- gonna call plays on offense that their upbringing in homer to work with you up and sublime and call the plays that I think he'll be. Obviously heavily involved in the running game. But to become of us who what was one of thirteen candidates interviewed for the job. Brad and as a special teams coordinator also given the title of assistant head coach. So what he replaces Dave told that you get a extremely experienced. Are successful special teams guy coming in and that's important because delivery output of the high value on special teams and and he wants to see that particular situation. Out right now rather than those who would. They have going. We need to see. You multiple opening. That on the same page there it if they are going to be a match with each other Pressman. And rather than that it's -- that is not a done deal. At this point and -- -- -- -- -- -- have an open mind about some assistance on the staff that insults and abuse will need to pick places that this will need to take some time but I imagine there -- to get through that is expeditions is expeditiously as possible the next several days. They've -- -- how important is this higher for a guy like Matt Forte struggled last season and Mike Tice. Because is usually you would you look at what it. Running backs have been able to produce. Offensively in terms of the numbers on the ground but put. More importantly our production in the passing game when they're talking about yardage receptions all of a near him. Charlie Garner. Who blows my dad went to junior -- and has scored controlled the average step. More than seventy receptions a year played out for the Raiders when threats and was up as a coordinator out there and have the right index sort of put up just. We speak. -- numbers include people well I numbers were. For these running backs -- the court he's going to get back to dwell on his strengths because of you remember what. -- says that jittery person in the press conference he was disappointed. That. Matt was in a bigger part of the passing game this past season. -- Brad dancer first of back to the rod -- only thing is there is there any truth to. He's a good way to went to see if Lovie Smith it's one of those two last head coaching jobs -- oh that's a long shot on both those but I kept hearing -- reading that that was the case that he wanted to see you based on his loyalty were Lovie -- make some decision. -- I picked it it is relationship of -- -- it will all be went somewhere -- some rod would certainly want to join him may have -- -- he was in defense of coordinator somewhere around would. Well I'll probably be very interest in him becoming the O line coach. That that division but it looks indications are now this may be -- will be the situation was so -- the year. That is paid by the Bears and then sort of reassess is in in Curacao. For next -- -- He'll rise to the Patrik they would not have to allow him. Believe but. -- have a sense dictate to -- situation where the guy. You know just isn't going to be comfortable in the situation that I don't think you put the -- a gun to his head especially guy who's been in the you'll really valued employee like -- million you know -- stimulate -- -- -- -- situation it's -- work and it's not. Then. Affect the work him in you're gonna have to make some other -- considerations for the opposition. I Brad before we let you go with yesterday Bruce Perry spent over seven hours and Alice saw he spent ninety minutes in a meeting -- Jay Cutler. There are many that believe around the league at last Friday would Jimmie Johnson -- -- that mark -- was gonna get the job that it was a fait accompli it was done but. From what I've been reading of your reports it's starting to hear. That may not be -- -- accurate what can you tell us about last night the meetings between the powers that be -- -- off. Well I ever do that if they have a decision by about 9 PM and that businesses and income per. Until after midnight it took longer to work through -- resiliency Darian was extremely. Impressive. They had three finalists but as a as I understand it is great and it came down to Pressman. And and from Syrian and implements. You know -- he met him twice in three days they met with Phil on Sunday in the knees up and how -- On that Tuesday at presenting. His vision and it would obviously a little bit different than what. -- this in the water in the and they work through it and ended up going with freshmen innings now with a possibility. So perhaps land in the end result otherwise looks like -- he could be let in Indianapolis.
