WASHINGTON - JUNE 26: During a congressional hearing on the National Football League's system for compensating retired players, Hall of Fame tight end and head coach Mike Ditka listens to testimony June 26, 2007 in Washington, DC. Former players and coaches including Ditka, Harry Carson, and Curt Marsh were scheduled to testify during the hearing before a subcommittee of the House Judiciary Committee.

Former Chicago Bears coach and ESPN analyst Mike Ditka feels that Marc Trestman’s offense can work in if he can get all the skill positions involved. He says they all have to be on the right page and that the ball has to come out of quarterback Jay Cutler’s hand faster than in the past. He expects a quicker moving offense, one that can strike fast with receiver Brandon Marshall on the outside or quick hits off of screens to running back Matt Forte. The addition of Martellus Bennett at tight end gives them an athletic option they had been missing in Chicago for some time. However, it’s how all of them are integrated into the offense that will be the determining factor. “I think you have to look at the receivers, the tight end and the running back. I’m not sure how much of the running game will be incorporated into it, but I assume Marc [Trestman] will have a lot of balance in his offense. But the cohesion among the tight end, receivers and the quarterback is going to be essential. The timing is the whole thing. . . . I think they’re going to improve it by going to a little bit quicker tempo and getting the ball out of the quarterback’s hands quicker,” via Mike Ditka of the Chicago Sun-Times.
