Tim Tebow may not have any believers among the 32 NFL general managers, but the legendary Mike Ditka certainly believes in the recently-cut quarterback.
Here’s what I would be telling Trestman before he steps into the glare of the lights.
It does at least look—and forgive me for sounding Wannstedtian here—like the pieces are in place, or will be when a head coach is hired, to become an organization like the Packers and Patriots.
This week, Ditka’s comments about Smith’s firing got me curious about how “Da Coach” fared against winning teams during his coaching career with the Bears. Additionally, I wondered how the coaches in between Ditka and Lovie – Dave Wannstedt and Dick Jauron – held against top competition during their time in Chicago.
It wasn’t much, but it could be enough to stir the last remnants of aging Ditkaphiles, so look out. Some still live among us, and still have the navy-blue sweater.
CBS 2′s Mike Parker sat down with Iron Mike to get his take on the Chicago Bears’ firing of one of his successors, Lovie Smith.
Things keep getting worse for the Ditka family.
Days after suffering a minor stroke, former Bears head coach Mike Ditka is out of the hospital and recovering well.

Sunday marks the 20th anniversary of the now infamous “Neal from North Lake” call.
Two days after Hall of Fame defensive end Richard Dent blamed former Bears head coach Mike Ditka for the team not repeating as Super Bowl champions after the 1985 season, teammate Tom Thayer defended his old coach.
Former Bears Coach Mike Ditka’s son Mark has a Nov. 16 arraignment after he was indicted by a Lake County grand jury on aggravated DUI and unlawful possession of controlled substances charges.
Why did such a talented group of players only walk away with one ring? Hall of Fame defensive end Richard Dent blames Mike Ditka.
In Chicago sports montages for years and years to come, we will likely see, at some point, the face of Ozzie Guillen along with Michael Jordan, Walter Payton, Ernie Banks, Patrick Kane, and Mike Ditka.
One of former Chicago Bears Coach Mike Ditka’s sons is facing another DUI charge.
In his blog, Pearlman posted a response to Ditka’s message.
For our sake, and more for that of the innocent listener, please adhere to the following guidelines. With your help, future caller, we can all work together to make talking about the Bears a safer experience for everyone.
A Lake County judge earlier this month granted a motion from defense attorneys quashing Michael Ditka’s DUI arrest and suppressing evidence from the arrest.
It’s not official yet, but one of the sons of former Bears Coach Mike Ditka appears to have beaten a drunk driving charge.
