Where do you rank Marc Trestman among the 32 NFL Head Coaches?

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sport

We're just one year into the Marc Trestman era for the Chicago Bears and it's safe to say he's made his mark on the team. But where does he rank among his peers?

Every first year NFL head coach will suffer from some growing pains. It's inevitable. New schemes, new culture and a new style all around. Players have to adapt to the new leadership and coaches have to adapt to their new players.

Some first time coaches fare better than others and some franchises are more inclined to let a coach work though the bumps in the road.

I'm fairly certain that the Chicago Bears and general manager Phil Emery are going to give Marc Trestman plenty of time to reach his goals.

Trestman fell short on some of the teams goals in 2013, but he did makes some positive strides. Offensively the Bears were playing championship level football, they just need to straighten out their defense for 2014. We'll find out in the next few months what players will be added to that unit.

I think the Bears have the head coach / GM dynamic that could lead them to an eventual Super Bowl.

Needless to say, I'm very optimistic about the Bears moving forward.

We know you overwhelmingly approve of the job that Trestman's done so far. In our last approval rating poll he checked in at 94% approve, but where do you rank Trestman among his peers?

A couple days ago Rotoworld ranked every coach in the NFL and they had Marc Trestman at number thirteen. Here's what they had to say about him.

There's no reason to sugarcoat it: Trestman has major room for improvement. The Bears' once-proud defense completed its precipitous fall under its first-year head coach, while Trestman's team couldn't cash in on the opportunity of a lifetime to win a wounded NFC North. It also led the NFC in points, averaging 27.8 per game in a year in which Josh McCown made five starts. Trestman created a town big enough for the both of Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery, and coaxed a career year out of 28-year-old back Matt Forte. Trestman knows offense, and is going to have an elite one for as long as the Bears will have him. Provided he learned the right lessons elsewhere as a rookie coach, he should prove to be a home-run hire for an organization with only three playoff wins in the 21st century.

Is 13 too high for an 8-8 first year coach?

What do do you think about Trestman's ranking and the Rotoworld list?
