Marc Trestman will not change his coaching staff now, or likely at any point during the rest of the season, despite the Bears’ downward spiral that hit its nadir Sunday with a 55-14 loss to the rival Packers.

“We finished yesterday as not a very good football team,” he said Monday at Halas Hall.

Trestman said defensive coordinator Mel Tucker is “doing everything he can,” despite the fact the Packers went six quarters without a punt against the Bears this season.

“I stand by these guys and the job that they’re doing,” he said. “I really believe in them.”

Trestman said that the Bears “have excellent coaches here.”

Trestman said he met with general manager Phil Emery on Monday morning, but that was not unusual. He sounded as though Jay Cutler would not be benched, though he admitted the quarterback needed to improve.
