So, no matter what else we do, those two things temper any possible excitement I would otherwise have.
I am not getting any younger, and I just don't see this coach getting this team a SB, and have even less confidence that it will happen with this QB.
When you first brought up Marc Trestman's name during SOC as a possibility, I knew next to nothing about him. My interest grew when Romeo got fired.
I look at what Chicago has been doing this offseason, and I think more and more that we should have hired Trestman instead.
It sucks that Clark thought he needed to get a recognizable and well-established name in the NFL in order to win back fans. I think that hastiness will eventually implode this team similar to the way it did once Vermeil retired and all the veterans got too old.
