Bonjour, Monsieur Trestman. That's a terrible way to greet Jay Cutler's new boss, but let's dive in with likes and dislikes about the man from Montreal. Dislike: The whole Canada thing. If he's so great, why hasn't he been in the NFL? By the way, the last coach we hired who coached in Canada? Neil Armstrong. Dislike. Dislike: This guy is being talked about like the only player he has to coach is Jay Cutler. Um, sorry. Other guys on that team could use a butt-whooping.

Pro quarterbacks—they're just like us! At least, they are after their playing days are over. For many of us, an updated LinkedIn profile is essential when it comes to the job search. The same can be said for a handful of former Bears quarterbacks from way back when. A search shows several are using the service much the same as we are, hoping to find new jobs, cultivate business opportunities or at the very least remind their professional contacts that they are, in fact, alive.

It's the holiday season once again, and what kind of self-centered goon would I be if I didn't get you fine folks the gift of a rapid-fire touch-em-all column? (Note, after this year we'll have to change that phrase.) > > Firing time and the lying's sleazy: From UCLA coach Rick Neuheisel getting canned a full week before the first Pac-12 championship game (and still coaching it) to the complete farce of the Urban Meyer saga, it's that time of year where college football teams eliminate their coaches and bring in a set of fresh faces.

When the Bears take the field Sunday against St. Louis, Josh McCown will be the starting quarterback for the third time in four games. The Bears are 2-0 in his starts this year and likely would have defeated Detroit on Nov. 10 had McCown played instead of a still-injured Jay Cutler. But before McCown's success leads to the inevitable clamoring from Bears fans and pundits suggesting that McCown retain the starting job ahead of a healthy Cutler, let's remind ourselves that we have a habit of overreacting to backups' success.

Tom Brady, Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers were top-five picks in almost every fantasy draft. If you took one of these three, you are automatically thinking championship. But after two weeks they've looked nothing like fantasy studs. Will this trio rebound, or did you draft fool's gold? Tom Brady The master of style has compiled 552 yards passing, three touchdowns and an interception, though the Patriots have other issues. They face tough defenses in the coming weeks (Baltimore, Buffalo, Denver and Seattle)

Lo', behold, it's a sign of light. That was some terrible English, and half those words probably don't exist - yet - but the Bears may have gotten one right. Jeremy Bates, quarterbacks coach and future foul language confidant of Jay Cutler, welcome aboard. I'm so glad it's a) someone Cutler has worked with before and b) someone Cutler has worked really well with before. As in 2008, Pro Bowl season, 4,500 yards. You figure with Bears QBs at their usual 1,000 yards-a-season clip, it takes 4.5 years to come up with that around here.

Every quarterback needs a best buddy, right? The guy he can count on even when his offensive line flops worse than LeBron James. Well, three QBs on some of the best teams in the NFL - Peyton Manning, Colin Kaepernick and Tom Brady - look like they each have a new best friend this season, and that can lead to huge fantasy points. Peyton Manning and Wes Welker If Week 1 is any indication, fantasy opponents of either of these two should beware. Welker was his usual self, just in a different uniform than we are used to seeing: nine catches, 67 yards, two touchdowns.

Here's a debate that's fun, challenging and a complete waste of your time. There seem to be theories about Josh McCown's success. Some say "Hey, it's the QB. He's awesome. Doesn't make any mistakes, doesn't turn it over. " And some say it's the coach and the system. Marc Trestman is a genius, and he did this with Rich Gannon and on and on. First off, I'm grateful for both. When you've been through, oh let's see, Caleb Hanie, Todd Collins, Henry Burris or Jonathan Quinn (my God, we are survivors, aren't we?

Fantasy football draft strategy can keep you up all night. As you start building your team for Wednesday's NFL opener, let's avoid paralysis by analysis and focus on whom to pick if these common quandaries present themselves. Aaron Rodgers vs. Arian Foster Rodgers and Foster are without question the two best fantasy players out there. The Packers QB put up monster numbers last year (45 passing touchdowns, 4,600 yards). Foster, the uber-talented running back for Houston, had a very impressive 2011 (12 total scores, over 1,800 total yards)

"If people could see him not just when the cameras are on, yeah, you'd see a different side of him. " That quote from Gabe Carimi came in late September after the loss to the Packers. I was gathering material for a column on what "Happy Jay Cutler" looked like, and Bear after Bear told me Cutler is absolutely a happy, jokey, light-hearted guy - just not always on the field, and not always with the media. Carimi's quote has been in my head for the past month, and during my time around the Bears I've begun to see Cutler's jokey side.
