    The Chicago Bears have had an off-season full of rather surprising moves. After letting go of head coach Lovie Smith after he won 10 games, the team went with former CFL head coach Marc Trestman to replace him. Then they cut off negotiations with long-time middle linebacker Brian Urlacher when the two sides couldn’t reach an agreement on a new deal. But if there is one person happy in Chicago, it appears to be star receiver Brandon Marshall. Marshall has taken the time to study the incoming offense Trestman is bringing from the CFL, and made it clear recently that he absolutely loves it. Per Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times:    Oh, my gosh, I’m in love with it,” Marshall said. “‘Martellus and I sat down and went through the formational stuff and started challenging each other. It was exciting to go through, and it’s pretty cool to have a partner.” ‘‘It’s so stimulating and it gets everyone involved, and that’s exciting to me,’’ Marshall said. ‘‘Because the better Alshon [Jeffery] is, the better I’ll be. The better Earl [Bennett] is, the better Martellus will be. The better Martellus is, the better Matt Forte will be. And so on and so forth. It’s just awesome.’’ Having Brandon Marshall all in can only mean good things for Chicago moving forward. Protecting quarterback Jay Cutler though, should be a big priority.
