Linkage...Marc Trestman, HC for Bears, and Aaron Kromer were on the same offensive staff together in Oakland from 2001-03.

Re: Kromer hired by Bears...

I'm sure Mickey has a list of candidates for every position, probably approved by Payton last year.

They knew this could happen and I'm sure they prepared for it.

Could be a fair few changes in the coaching department this summer.
Might be a good thing,if we can get new coaches signed quickly.
Things go stale after a while s d players stop listening.Fresh ideas,new voices for a new season.

Good luck to Kromer and any others that go,but I'm not too worried.
Can't see it working for him in Chicago myself.His and Carmichaels play calling was appalling last season,and he has nowhere near the same toys to play with in Chicago.He never got the best out of any of the backs so I'd fear for Forte and Bush if I was a bears fan.

I just worry about how out-of-date the list will be. That was almost a year ago.

I' m bummed. Kromer was a big reason why underperforming unknown guys like Bushrod, Strief, could still hold it together, he's why our tight ends are so good at blocking, and he played a part in Jahri Evans *earning* the highest paid guard contract (at the time) and the story of Carl Nicks' transformation from a nobody fifth rounder into one of the best in the NFL. All that happened with him in the mix.

Unlike Carmichael, I could easily see Kromer really thriving outside of the Brees orbit. As offensive coordinator of a decent offense with a history of line problems, he will be a force there and I think the Bears will really improve.

Re: Kromer hired by Bears...

An offensive line coach calling plays? Yeah, that sounds like something the Bears would do. I'm not surprised. I'm glad I'm not a Bears fan, because they seem to be cursed with either average or downright awful offenses.

I will state again that I'm not worried about any of the current assistants. They didn't pull their weight without Payton. I consider position coaches to be a dime a dozen.
