Former NFL star Daryl Johnston has been the latest prominent football figure to criticize Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman after the former Cowboys star's appearance on Sports Illustrated Now.

Johnston appeared on the SI's TV show to discuss many of the current hottest topics in the NFL, with one of those hot topics being the disastrous start to the season for the Bears.

Many so called NFL experts have put the majority of the blame for the Bears' poor start on the shoulders of Jay Cutler, but rather than single out the under fire quarterback, Johnston questioned whether Trestman is the right type of coach for the Bears. 

Is Trestman the right type of coach?

"Marc Trestman is a very soft-spoken, intelligent, and scheme orientated guy. But we've always thought of Chicago as physical and monsters of the midway," Johnston explained on SI Now.

"They were thought of as a defense anchored team. This is a team that has transitioned for years now and it's moving to the offensive side."

Have the Bears lost their identity?

Also on the TV panel was former NFL defensive end Simeon Rice, who backed up Johnston's criticism of Trestman by saying the 3-5 Bears have lost their identity during their time under Trestman.

"It has always been cut from the same cloth in Chicago. Different faces but the mentality has always been the same," Rice told SI Now.

"You used to have blue collar, but now you don't necessarily have something that represents Chicago."
