As Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles lands at Halas Hall and his moved-up job interview for the head-coaching job, consider a subplot to the entire process:
The 2014 Bears season will be remembered for the incidents of Marc Trestman’s second year, double-digit losses and Jay Cutler’s turnovers, among other things.
Bears head coach Marc Trestman has alluded to the concept of “complimentary football” to describe a team where each phase supports the others by doing its job to at least an adequate level.
When Josh McCown rejoined the Bears in 2012, coming back as insurance behind Jason Campbell when Jay Cutler sustained a concussion in mid-season he became more than just a No.
When in doubt, trot in an ex-Bear quarterback to help out.
