Hall of Fame quarterback Steve Young spoke out recently in support of newly hired Bears head coach Marc Trestman. Trestman, who was the offensive coordinator for Young in San Francisco in 1995 and 1996, was hired to replace Lovie Smith, after coaching in the CFL and winning back to back championships there. Young believes Trestman is ready for the pressure of being a coach, and that he will elevate the level of execution and quality on offense that the Bears have not had in a while.
Young also hopes that Jay Cutler will flourish under Trestman. He believes that if Cutler puts in the work and does the “boring” stuff for the next few months Cutler can emerge as a great quarterback, now more than ever. This is a ringing endorsement from one of the best quarterbacks of all time, and a 4 time Super Bowl champion to boot. Hopefully Cutler can heed his words, and the Bears will benefit from his success. Stay tuned for more Bears news, and enjoy the Super Bowl!
