In the event Marc Trestman and Jay Cutler do not always speak the same language, the Bears have hired a translator.

We can be assured Matt Cavanaugh can converse in Trestmanish as well as Cutlerese. What's more, he presumably understands whatever sign language Cutler may use.

The new quarterbacks coach could be the ideal go-between for Trestman and Cutler.

The fact he has been an NFL quarterback should earn him Cutler's respect. He was a backup, and an accomplished one.

He won a pair of Super Bowl rings and played behind quarterbacks such as Joe Montana, Randall Cunningham and Phil Simms. He threw passes to receivers such as Jerry Rice and Cris Carter.

He's certainly not a novice teaching quarterbacks. The 56-year old won a third Super Bowl ring as a coach. He has coached quarterbacks as varied as Steve Young, Elvis Grbac, Erik Kramer, Trent Dilfer, Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow.
