Chicago Bears: is Marc Trestman on the hot seat?

The Chicago Bears suffered another loss at Soldier field, a place in which they haven’t won a game all year. The offense struggled once again and continues to play at a inconsistent level. So as Chicago sits at a 3-4 record, is it fair to question the safety of Marc Trestman’s job? Maybe not yet, but the seat is getting hotter for Trestman and his staff.
General manager Phil Emery brought in Trestman last year to create an offensive juggernaut here in Chicago. At times it has looked as if the Bears picked up Trestman’s system and were on their way to being one of the best offenses in the league. Unfortunately it has never stuck around for more then a couple of weeks. Emery hired the former CFL coach over Bruce Arians. As Trestman continues to put together a offense that doesn’t compete on a weekly basis, one must question why Emery didn’t go with Arians as he has had more success with a less talented team in Arizona.
Of course it is important to understand the idea Emery had with hiring the QB â€

Jay Cutler was recently paid $54 million dollars, with that comes a good lookin’ wife. However, as many of you know, Cutler doesn’t have just any wife … he married former Laguna Beach star Kristen Cavallari.

Former Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher goes off on Jay Cutler

On Wednesday, Brian Urlacher told Kap and Haugh Show that he thought Jay Cutler has too be better. He went on and on about the quarterback and really talked trash.  “We say it every year how talented Jay is, how much talent he has,” Urlacher told The Kap and Haugh Show.  “But the NFL is not […] The post Former Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher goes off on Jay Cutler appeared first on NFL Draft Diamonds.

Chicago Bears Have A Shot At Safety Michael Griffin

The NFL trade deadline is always unpredictable, and safety Michael Griffin being available qualifies.  Do the Chicago Bears make an offer?
Tennessee Titans Add Griffin To List Of Trade Chips
At 2-5, the writing appears on the wall for the Tennessee Titans.  With ongoing problems at the quarterback position the likelihood of them making a run is limited at best.  So as the NFL trade deadline approaches the front office has begun placing player on the block.  Included are wide receiver Nate Washington, linebacker Wesley Woodyard and perhaps most surprising, safety Michael Griffin.  The 29-year old is a two-time Pro Bowler who has been with the Titans since 2007.  He currently has amassed 50 tackles, two sacks and two interceptions in seven games this season.  However, Pro Football Focus has been down on him, posting a grade of -5.9.

Tom Brady Recalls Juking Bears’ Brian Urlacher: ‘Weren’t Many Of Those’

If there’s a little extra hop in Tom Brady’s step this Sunday, no one would blame him.
The last time the Chicago Bears visited Gillette Stadium on Nov. 26, 2006, Brady nearly broke linebacker Brian Urlacher’s ankles with a shifty juke move on a pivotal 11-yard scamper.
Brady, never known for being fleet-footed, picked up a first down on third-and-9, prolonging a drive that eventually ended with the New England Patriots grabbing a 17-10 lead in the fourth quarter. The Pats won the game 17-13.
“Somehow that always gets brought up, too, when we play these guys,” Brady told reporters Wednesday in Foxboro. “There weren’t many of those (plays) in my career, so it’s pretty easy to count them all on one hand when something like that happens.”

Brady was fired up after juking Urlacher out of his shoes. And for good reason. The shock value was through the roof that fateful night.
“I think I had the benefit of having the ball in my hand, so I kind of pumped it and he got a little off balance,”

Urlacher: Cutler paid like elite QB, hasn’t produced like one

Brian Urlacher was teammates with Jay Cutler for four years. That’s long enough for the former Chicago Bears linebacker to draw the conclusion that Cutler is really only elite in one category at the moment — salary. Cutler, who signed a seven-year, $126 million contract this past offseason that included $54 million guaranteed, is certainly…Read More

Two Old Addages The Chicago Bears Need To Remember

The Chicago Bears are once again off to a rough start, much to the chagrin of fans and the team itself. The coaching staff is largely to blame, as is franchise quarterback Jay Cutler. The play calling on both sides of the ball has been leaving to say the least.
Run The Football
Jay Cutler has all the pieces he needs to be great. He had everything he always wanted, an offense-minded head coach, talented receivers, a strong offensive line and a go-to-guy with him in the backfield. Yet Jay continues to struggle and frequently turns the ball over.
Marc Trestman, the “quarterback whisperer”, is realistically an offensive coordinator at best, yet kept the Bears at least at .500 during an injury-riddled season, a season in which the team went through a massive overhaul. The Bears even flourished behind journeyman backup QB Josh McCown.
Both coach and field general have forgotten one important aspect to football that had been proven time and again. Your ability to run the football gives you the right to pass it.

Brian Urlacher: Jay Cutler “hasn’t produced like an elite quarterback”

Former Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher was very honest and blunt when it comes to the play of his former teammates, quarterback Jay Cutler.
“Financially, he is one of the elite guys in the NFL … he just hasn’t produced like an elite quarterback,” Urlacher said on Chicago radio station 87.7 FM The Game, according to the Chicago Sun Times. “You look at the Bradys, the Mannings, the Rodgers, the Brees, those guys win every year, even with no one around them. Rodgers has no offensive line. He wins. Brady has no receivers. He wins.”
Urlacher is absolutely right.  Can’t disagree with him at all.  I wonder how how Cutler feels about what he said.

Mike Ditka disses the leadership of the Chicago Bears: No captain on the roster

Leadership is a difficult thing to quantify when you’re talking about the NFL, but when your team is lacking it everybody notices. Such is the case for the 2014 Chicago Bears.
According to former head coach Mike Ditka, this year’s team is lacking real leadership because there’s no true captain on the roster.
Ditka blames Marc Trestman for his rotating captain’s policy. Here’s what he wrote in the Chicago Sun-Times last night:
“I understand what Marc’s trying to do. He’s trying to get everybody involved, make everyone feel like they’re special with being captain that week. The thing about being a captain, it’s something you can’t give somebody. It’s something they have to earn. And they earn it from the overall respect they get from everybody on that football team.”

Dedication to run could solve the Chicago Bears’ woes on offense

To say the Chicago Bears need to run the ball more would be an oversimplification, but it is something they’ve had success doing and could open up the rest of their offense.
Every team says they want to run the ball more, so it has become cliché, but, with the Bears, it isn’t just about the standard football logic. Running fits what the Bears players do best and what their team has been best at. It’s a simple solution to a complex problem.

This isn’t as much about getting the ball in Matt Forte’s hands, something they probably do too much of already, but rather, putting their offense in position to succeed. Without a dedication to the ground game, the Bears are severely limiting their offensive potential.

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler’s latest (and telling) 1-32 quarterback ranking

Every week, from now through the Wednesday before the Super Bowl, the editors at cover32 will gather to rank the NFL’s 32 starting quarterbacks. Depending on what’s happened the previous week, some will rise and some will fall, and even some of the names on the list will change. It’s a never-ending evolution, as the status of the league’s top signal callers is always in flux.
Seven weeks into the 2014 season, here’s how the starting quarterbacks in the NFL shake out:

1. Peyton Manning – Manning’s record-setting night against the 49ers was a quarterback clinic, showing he’s still the best in the business. (LW: 1)
2. Aaron Rodgers - Right now, the Packers are absolutely cruising to wins, led by their cool-customer QB, who is playing better than ever. (LW: 2)
3. Andrew Luck – Nobody is putting up better numbers than Luck who has the Colts rolling after five straight wins. (LW: 3)
4. Tony Romo – When a guy has led his team to the best record in the league, it’s worthy of praise. No matte

Brian Urlacher Calls Out The Bears, Again

It has never been difficult for former Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher to find an outlet to give his opinion on what is going on with the current team. Naturally, Urlacher took the recent locker room “issues” and used it to voice his opinion on the “Kap and Haugh” show this morning.
“This Wouldn’t Have Happened Under Lovie”
Urlacher made it very clear on his radio appearance that Brandon Marshall’s “outburst” wouldn’t have happened under former coach Lovie Smith.
Brian Urlacher told @KapandHaugh that the Brandon Marshall locker room outburst never would have happened under Lovie Smith.

It seems that Urlacher loves to paint a picture of the early 2000’s Bears being tougher than the current team. Urlacher continued to say that former leaders in the locker room (Olin Kruetz) wouldn’t have let Marshall go off either.

Brandon Marshall on Jay Cutler: We’re like brothers

There is no rift between Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler and wide receiver Brandon Marshall, at least not according to Marshall. The Bears’ locker room was not a fun place to be Sunday afternoon following their loss to the Miami Dolphins. According to reports, Bears players had it out in the locker room, with Marshall reportedly criticizing Cutler. After the game, Marshall However, things are all good between the two players who go back a long way, Marshall said Wednesday. “I have a really nice condo. And guess what? Jay Cutler built that condo,” Marshall said on the NFL Network via ProFootballTalk.com. “We’re great. We’re great. You know, we’re like brothers. I think Coach Trestman said it the best. But if I have a problem with Jay Cutler, I’m going to go to Jay Cutler. If Jay Cutler has a problem with me, he’s going to come to me. We have that type of relationship.” The Bears are at a critical part of their season. The home loss to the Dolphins — already their third of the season

Lance Briggs left Bears’ locker room to avoid the fighting

Linebacker, Lance Briggs wanted nothing to do with Brandon Marshall’s outburst Sunday afternoon following the Bears loss to the Dolphins. Briggs did not stick around for it and walked away from it all. Lance had this to say on his weekly Comcast Sports Net Show.
I just left because I could see where things were kinda going. And I knew that when you get emotional there are moments when, you get in an argument and both people are emotional, you’re not going to get anywhere, continuing to argue.”
Your browser does not support iframes. Talking about the loss to the Dolphins brought up more conversation on how disappointed they were and even compared the Bears to the 2011 Philadelphia Eagles “Dream Team.” The Eagles were picked by most to make a big run, but it takes more than talent as they finished 8-8. This is something Chicago Bears players hope to change and turn the season around quickly heading into New England this weekend.
“An emotional moment for a lot of us, I started to hear people start
