Chicago Bears’ Marc Trestman open to resting starters

The Chicago Bears are currently in first place in the NFC North and pretty much need to win the final two games on their schedule if they want to win it.

It’s either win the NFC North or go home considering the San Francisco 49ers and the New Orleans Saints or Carolina Panthers will be taking the Wild Card’s in the conference. With Aaron Rodgers possibly being sidelined on Sunday, they could take a huge step towards their first NFC North title since the 2010 season.

Head coach Marc Trestman is making a case for himself when it comes to Coach of the Year honors. He brought a system to Chicago that has worked out perfectly, which features two Chicago Bears receivers over 1,000 yards receiving.

He also has two quarterbacks who are nearly at 2,000 yards passing and 13+ touchdowns each. Their only downside has been their defense. If Chicago was able to keep their defense together and perform like they did last year? They could easily be the best team in the conference.

But things could be taking a weird turn. Now according to, Marc Trestman is open to resting his starters, but it may not come to that decision. Which is a wise choice.

It’s too close of a race for this team taking a game off. Both of these games count, especially with Green Bay playing great football as of late with Matt Flynn.

This Sunday is a huge game against Philadelphia and they’re hoping they can get Lance Briggs back in the starting line up to help contain LeSean McCoy.

    LMAO! Coach of The Year? Are you serious? As of now his team is down 24-0 to Philly and is looking at facing Aaron Rodgers and the Pack to win it all! Their D is a joke! They could very well wind up 8-8 and fall short of the playoffs and Lovie Smith’s 2012 W-L record! That will be a disaster! Coach Of The Year? More like underachiever of te year!

      I would make a case for trestman insofar as the offense but the defense is not good. Lovie smith did bad with same offense players but his defense players were better than trestman defense players. The players win or lose the players are more important than coaches. The players might win or the players might lose. It is that simple. Trestman did good with some player s but not good with some players. We will see but author said right things.

        Bruce Arians is far and away the coach of the year. Trestman needed his team to win out, and they didn’t, now their destiny is in their own hands. They have a tough task ahead. Trestman replaced a coach who had a good amount of success inc.a SB appearance with a mediocre QB.IMHO his season will be a failure if he can’t make playoffs and especially finishing under the previous coachs record.
