Everything peachy with Cutler and Trestman

Marc Trestman, Jay Cutler AP

When Bears General Manager Phil Emery started looking for a new head coach, he talked about the importance of the coach-quarterback relationship.

And as it has been a few times with Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, the answer is, “so far, so good.”

“We’re getting more and more comfortable with each other, trusting each other more and more,” Cutler said of Trestman, via Tom Pelissero of USA Today. “We’re in close quarters right now. See him every day. Talk to him every day. It’s going well. It’s one of those things that’s an evolving process each and every day of just learning about each other and what he likes and what I like and dislike.

There’s been no real, serious bumps in the road yet.”

Of course, he’s talked about how close he was with coordinators such as Mike Martz and Mike Tice before also, and we see how that turned out.

“I feel there’s a comfortability, but a sense of urgency with both of us,” Trestman said. “You’d have to ask him the rest. But I feel like it’s open and honest. It continues to grow. We’ve only laid a foundation here over the last six months, and what’s ahead will really allow us to grow and test us and I’m excited about that. I think he is as well.”

Of course, there’s a vested interest for both to make the relationship grow. Cutler’s entering a contract year, and the Emery has said they’re not doing extensions for current players this year.

So if Cutler can tap into what Trestman’s selling, he stands to make that much more money next year, from someone.

    Just wait for Cutler’s first 3 INT game of the year and then ask Trestman of his assessment.

    Trestman has all the smarts while Cutler has all the skills to turn this into ‘The Greatest Show on Turf’.

    maybe Trestman unlike the other morons the bears have used to run the offense knows what he is doing. and more importantly is listening to Cutler and letting him do some of the the things he did best when he was with the broncos and 1 of the best young qb’s in the game. maybe he is running a offense that plays to the strengths of the players he has also instead of forcing them to fit in to his system. and more importantly maybe Cutler is happy to only have to listen to Trestman and have him call the plays instead of 3 different people like he had to under lovie. that means no more time outs at the start of games because they could not get the play in or did not have the right people on the field for the play called. I really wish rodgers or brees would have had to play 1 game let alone a season under the same conditions Cutler has and put up the numbers they do.

    Outside of the draft, which the Bears were in no position to make any moves, what were they supposed to do at the QB position? Chase Matt Flynn or Kevin Kolb? This is a telling moment in Cutlers career, Trestman will get his chance past this year to take the team in his direction. Cutler needs to have a good year without any blowups on the sidelines, which may be slightly over exagerrated by the networks, but nevertheless he needs to have a good year attitude wise and statistically.

    When Cutler dominate Green bay in both games this season with a 13-3 season the talk will change. this is Chicago’s year.

    Wait until Cutler gets sacked 6 times in a game. That will change real fast.

    ANY QB THAT CAME TO CHICAGO WHEN CUTLER DID AND HAD THAT O LINE AND DEVIN HESTER AS HIS NUMBER 1 WR COULDN’T HAVE DONE MUCH BETTER THAN WHAT CUTLER HAS DONE

    he’s been great with absolutely nothing to work with

    @sweetness3417
    AGREED 100% Cutler Came to Chicago with NO WR’s, NO offensive system, NO offensive coaches, NO offensive line, and still managed to average 10 wins per season.
