CSN Chicago's Jim Miller interviews former Raiders quarterback Rich Gannon about what Marc Trestman can bring to the Bears - 2/22
Which I would like to walk -- Comcast sports net Chicago former NFL quarterback MVP 2002 under Marc Grossman's. Guidance with the Oakland Raiders let's say hello to Rich Gannon rich maybe just talk about your time period out there and Oakland. With mark trust -- as your quarterbacks coach called plays working with yet. How did that benefit you when you -- Kirk is it ultimately led to the 2002 and it's on VP. Yeah -- you know I felt great deal of respect for mark tourist authority terrific play caller. Things through the quarterbacks -- the one thing that I really admire about mark. Was is a good listener you know as a as a former quarterback how important it is to be able to have feedback -- that dialogue. With whether it's the head coach or whether it's the coordinator the gets called plays each and every Sunday so. If you wanna be joined at the -- than we had that relationship I think there's certainly trust factor there. I think he sees the game to the eyes of the quarterback and he's been great for Jay color. They've got to be able develop that trust and that's gonna be I think the important thing here movies for the next couple months. You played the position at such an elite level I think people are always. Wanting more from Jay Cutler can be reached that a league level. Know when you look at Marc Grossman's guidance and tutelage what can -- specifically work with Jay Cutler on. To improve one isn't whether it's his mechanics reading defense has anything to improve his game. And you gotta go back and study today a little bit figure out where -- knew where things go wrong that you go back and look at. But Mike Martz -- coordinator in fact that the guy who -- was getting hit on almost every play in fact he got sacked him when you're fifty times and it. He got to clean that up he's got to be able to trust the protection once again he's got to be able to the -- step up in the pocket you know I think mechanically some things you look at his footwork. But you look at him throwing off bound to look at him not sitting out front throw some of those things we -- he's got the arm strength. But he's got to get comfortable once again back in the pocket I think he's got to be able to. Have a better sense a better feel for why the call certain plays what I call certain protections against certain defense the other thing I like to see from today to him. Is he such a Smart guy we know that about Jay Cutler. Give us more flexibility and freedom of monster was I think that's a -- for us to do you look at Aaron -- up there in Green -- he's got the ability to get an out of protections change plays. You know take advantage of things he sees -- I think you've got to be able put the game in the hands of Belichick Cutler. Mark trust -- -- basically filled out his offensive coaching staff he brings and Aaron -- moreover from the New Orleans Saints. Classified as -- often -- but they're all gonna have I handed it. But -- -- Colbert really dissect -- and he is this can be a compilation. Of offenses was that your case out in Oakland under mark trust. And -- the greatest tire that mark could have made I mean you know you -- there growers in her head coach last year for awhile -- Owens yeah I talked to Sean Payton last night. He's devastated the holes ago like and I also talked to her last night and he's real excited to be in Chicago and you know when I was in with those guys in Oakland you know. Aaron was very involved in play -- very involved in the run game marked leaned on him in terms of protection they -- -- really well together put game plans and so. I think it's a great pairing for the starters. Lastly rich people were -- to go I mean obviously you were self starter in mark trust and was very demanding. Of view I mean putted that does that put more pressure on -- or is that just all within yourself to be that's the greatest quarterback he could be and do you see that EJ. That he could to put that pressure on himself to be a great quarterback -- elite level. And I really think that -- got to decide what -- his cute future's gonna be what's his legacy going to be Chicago he's going to be a guy like Jeff George had all the talent but yet never was able to win football games to this -- the next level. Or is he again -- -- pregnancy which Chicago I think it's the latter but he's got to he's got to buy into what Marcus is trying to sell. Programs that -- that program he's got a I think recommit himself rededicate himself to the Chicago Bears I've rich thanks for your time appreciate it.
