Marc Trestman Ranked 24th among NFL Head Coaches

David Banks-USA TODAY Sports

NFL.com has dropped their NFL Head Coach Power Rankings and they have Chicago Bears head honcho Marc Trestman at 24th. Too high, too low or just right?

Last month we checked out the Head Coach rankings by the Sporting News. They had Chicago Bears' head man Marc Trestman at 25th, and while these lists are fairly subjective, that ranking riled up a few Bears fans in our comment thread. Not necessarily because of where he was ranked, but more because of whom they ranked above him.

Earlier today NFL.com revealed their own Head Coach Power rankings, and they saw Chicago's head coach in a similar light. Trestman checked in at 24th on their list after his 8-8 season.

Here's where a few of his noteworthy contemporaries ranked. Top on their list is New England's Bill Belichick, Green Bay's Mike McCarthy was 6th, former Bears and current Bucs coach Lovie Smith is 14th and Detroit's Jim Caldwell is 22nd.

Here's what they had to say about Trestman.

While Chicago fell just short of the playoffs at 8-8, Trestman did a solid job in his debut campaign, considering he was implementing a brand new scheme and lost his starting quarterback for a healthy chunk of the season. (Not to mention all of the injuries on the defensive front.) That said, the Bears did go 10-6 in Lovie Smith's last season. The 2014 campaign should tell us more about how good a decision GM Phil Emery made in tapping Trestman for the job.

I think it's pretty clear that Trestman is well respected throughout the league, but he also has just the lone season under his belt running his own NFL team. If Chicago improves on last year's eight wins his ranking will go up.

What are your thoughts on their list?
