Life after Marc Trestman begins for the Chicago Bears, as the former CFL coach went 13-19 in his two seasons and landed a job as the Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator after he was let go. In comes John Fox, who is coming off a very successful four-year stint with the Denver Broncos that resulted in one Super Bowl appearance. Fox also made a Super Bowl appearance with the Carolina Panthers back in 2003.
Fox’s job is to fix a shoddy defense, one that finished among the bottom of the league last season, and put confidence into Jay Cutler, who’s projected talent seems to outweigh his performances on the field thus far in his career.
Before Fox gets his team ready for the regular season, the Bears have their slate of preseason games to get through to fine tune the new systems he implements. Below is secondary market ticket information for the Bears preseason games according to TiqIQ.com, along with some travel options for some of the cheaper options on the road.
