Man Up Volunteerism

This week Fearless Men had two more articles featured on the Man Up Leadership App! If you haven’t already go download it. Free for iPhone and Android 3.0 and up. Men all over the country are taking part in it! You are missing out.

Today my Chicago Bears announced that they’re hiring Marc Trestman. A man who’s been out of the NFL for 5 years and has been the Head coach of the Montreal Alouettes. That’s the CFL (Canadian Football League) for those that don’t follow. Granted they have won 2 titles with him! Apparently he’s some type of offensive genius and QB’s coach. Exactly what the Chicago Bears are looking for. I really hope it pans out. I’d be lying if I said I was happy with this choice. Although, he was the Offensive Coordinator for the Oakland Raiders when they went to the Superbowl in 2002 and Rich Gannon won MVP honors. We’ll just have to see how the season goes and what he brings to the table. Can’t be worse than missing the playoffs 5 of the last 6 years.

Now for our weekly round-up | Thanks all for commenting

  1. Oh come on, John! Are all of you Bears fans this delirious? If you haven’t noticed you play in a division with one of the best quarterbacks in the league. Top QBs = Division Champions.

    Lovie Smith was a very good coach and his record speaks for itself. How can you fire a coach that goes 10-6, 8-8, and 11-5 in his last 3 years?

    • It depends on which records you look at. If you look at them all like placing bottom 5 in offense 8 of 9 years, missing playoffs 4 of last 5 years and also the standings you mentioned then it’s unacceptable. The Bears spend $’s to make the playoffs and win. Smith was a good coach but not better than the division rivals. All of that summed together means he had to go. If we simply wanted a good record and didn’t care about making the playoffs then it would be ok. Phil Emery’s press conference addressing Smith’s firing actually summed it up really good. It was said that his address was one of the best by a GM ever.

  2. I’ll be interested to see how Trestman does. He really does have a very good offensive mind and has done wonders with quite a few quarterbacks in his day. So, he could be a very good hire. That said, he could also be another guy who is a great coordinator but a terrible head coach like Norv Turner. Thanks for the mention btw!

    • Yea, living here in SD we tend to hear a lot of complaints about Norv. I agree that he isn’t HC material but is an offensive mind. Didn’t he go to the Browns to be their OC? I really hope Trestman works out. We don’t need to rebuild, we just need offense and we could win it all.

  3. Thanks to including me. Glad to hear about a fellow Bears fan.

  4. Thanks for the mention! Does anyone follow Canadian football? do they really even play up there?

  5. I was wondering how Chicago fans feel about Cutler. Fans in Denver hated him, but then everyone gets compared to Elway, so it isn’t really fair. I think he has the talent, but always seems a little too self absorbed to me, but it’s not like I had him over for dinner to get to know him.

  6. For years, people have claimed that Andy Reid was weighing the Eagles down. I guess next season we will find out if that was true. And considering it’s difficult for Kansas City to get any worse, he may actually do some good there.

    And thanks for the mention!

    • I thought it was interesting how Reid got picked up so quick and coveted by the Cardinals too. The Eagles were in a similar spot to the Bears in that both had good coaches, possibly great (no SB win). I am surprised Lovie is still available but it does say something when in 9 years you can never get the offense going. I think other GM and owners see that.

  7. All I can say is: I am a huge Broncos fan. This has not been a good week…

    I am loving this site, and will be honored when I am included on the Round-Up someday. Keep up the great writing!

  8. Thanks for the mention!
