New OC Bears Luc Getsy told the media that he plans to build his new offense around his quarterback and noted that it was important to build a relationship with QB Justin Fieldsmuch like the one he had with Packers QB Aaron Rodgers.
“We have to immerse ourselves in what everyone else does best, right?” Getsy said via Pro Football Talk. “And it starts with the quarterback. This is a quarterback directed offense. The things the quarterback does well, that’s going to drive who we are. And then we’re going to marry that to what the other guys on the football field do well. That’s the goal of the offensive coordinator – to dive into what people do best and then build the offense around that. You have to dive into this relationship if you want to be successful. Just because (Justin) is young or whatever, it’s always about getting to know the person. What motivates them? What is their learning style? It will be essential for us to delve into all of these things once we come together.
Michigan DE Aidan Hutchinson was a popular fake draft pick for the Lions given his regional ties to the team. Hutchinson didn’t grow up as a Lions fan, but he’s totally okay with starting his NFL career in Detroit.
“It certainly has advantages” Hutchinson said via Tim Twentyman of the Lions team website. “Staying close to home and I would be very close to my family and stuff like that, so that would be really cool. If the Lions took me and we started winning games, I think that would be really exciting.
He added that he didn’t mind being part of a reconstruction.
