3. Marc Trestman, Chicago Bears (NR): Riverboat Ron turned into Rowboat Ron after a sorry performance against the Saints. On the flip side, the Bears flattened the Cowboys with a backup quarterback playing like the Midwest version of Nick Foles. Trestman has somehow coaxed a Rich Gannon-esque season from Josh McCown, who has actually outplayed incumbent Jay Cutler this season. Trestman might be higher on this list if Robbie Gould makes a 47-yard field goal in Minnesota, but the bone-headed decision to kick it on second down as opposed to trying to get a few yards closer is on the head coach.
