Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman says that quarterback Jay Cutler is learning the team's new offensive system quickly.

Marc Trestman has said that quarterback Jay Cutler is responding well to the Chicago Bears' new offensive system.

The NFC North side replaced their coaching staff at the end of last season, having missed out on the playoffs for the second year in a row.

The new head coach told the Bears' website: "I don't think he's flinched. I just think he likes football. He likes the information. He's working through a lot of different things in terms of the information. We threw a ton of stuff at him [on Tuesday], in our red-zone period, a bunch of new plays.

"We had multiple snap counts [yesterday] throughout practice. Our line was focused, our guys were focused. We did not have a pre-snap penalty today and it was our most difficult day at the line of scrimmage with snap counts.

"I feel there is a comfortability, but a sense of urgency with both of us. I feel like it's open and honest. It continues to grow. We've only laid a foundation here for the last six months. What's ahead will really allow us to grow and test us and I'm excited about that. I think he is as well. We understand what's at stake."

Trestman joined the Bears from the CFL's Montreal Alouettes, where he won two Grey Cups.
