The hiring of Marc Trestman is a blessing for Jay Cutler, ESPN analyst Steve Young believes. Cutler, who hasn’t had the supporting cast or sound offensive mind, now will get the chance to show his stuff. Working in a quarterback challenged offense, Cutler held on to the ball too long trying to make something happen. When things did happen, they were usually bad, with Cutler throwing multiple interceptions or getting injured. That now all changes with Trestman who will bring a sound offense that will protect the quarterback, not get him killed. Young offered his view on WMVP-AM, via ESPN.com. "He can be as good as anybody, if he wants to be," "But you need the platform to find out how good you are. I was in a platform in Tampa Bay where you are not going to find out. Then I got to San Francisco, and now I'm going to find out. I might find out that I still stink. I might suck at it, but I'm going to find out. "You realize, 'I've been in purgatory, quarterback purgatory. I've been in a lot of places in the league where the quarterback is in purgatory.' You get discouraged, especially when you see others doing things and you think, 'That would be a platform I would love to have' ... I've got to believe that when Jay sees it, he'll see it as the greatest opportunity of (his) life." "He understands quarterbacks," Cutler said to the Bears' website. "He understands their thought process and the minds of quarterbacks and what we have to go through. It's going to be a quarterback-friendly system, and I can't wait to get started with him."   var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
