Marc Trestman has been called many things lately: mad scientist, Willy Wonka, Quarterback Guru, Quarterback Whisperer. Tony Dungy, who was Trestman’s roommate for road games in college described the Chicago Bears ’ new offense: “You’re not seeing Canadian football. What you’re seeing is University of Minnesota 1974 football.”
If Marc Trestman mania hadn’t already started last night…well it’s morning now in Chicago, Marc Trestman mania has officially begun.
Of course, Dungy is the NBC equivalent of Jon Gruden, everything is positive. Everybody is good. Never a discouraging word is heard. To Gruden’s credit, he said on media conference call recently that he’s well aware of people criticizing him for being too positive all the time. It would be good if Dungy did the same.
So what is ’74 Gophers football exactly?
Well, I’m sure Dungy was giving Marc Trestman a complement, or at least trying to. After all, the Bears are 3-0 and averaging exactly 30 ppg. However, Minnesota didn’t even
