Chicago Bears: What Marc Trestman Must Do to Be Successful in Chicago

In 2006, Lovie Smith and the Chicago Bears were down in Miami competing for a Super Bowl. At that point, the team looked like it would only go up from there.

Now, just six seasons later, the team is facing an overhaul, with lots of new faces in Chicago getting ready for next season.

Smith couldn't beat Green Bay and he couldn't make the playoffs consistently, which lead to his firing and why he is currently without a coaching job in the NFL.

Now, the Bears have moved on from 2006 and the Lovie Smith Era, placing their faith and trust in Marc Trestman, a quarterbacks guru who has been all around the NCAA, NFL and CFL, carrying his teachings and winning ways with him wherever he goes.

And yet, there seems to be a lot of uncertainty in the city of Chicago right now.

While he may have won two Grey Cup championships in the Canadian Football League, the NFL is an entirely different game than the CFL, and it's up to Trestman to make the switch right away and hit the ground running with the Bears.

There are five things that Trestman needs to really focus on during his first season in Chicago to have success and keep the fans happy. Those five things can be found right here.
