"Lead-from-behind-style," Tribune writer compares fired Bears coach to Obama's failed foreign policy

This morning the Chicago Bears fired head coach Marc Trestman after two miserable seasons. The Monsters of the Midway became the Milquetoasts of the Midway during his tenure. By all accounts Trestman was a failure, so it's interesting to read how Rich Campbell, the Chicago Bears beat reporter, described Trestman's coaching approach as a "lead-from-behind-style."  Of course during the 2011 NATO conflict with Libya, a White House advisor described America's role there as "leading from behind." 

We are retreating with dishonor from Afghanistan this week, the rise of the Islamic State (ISIS) in Iraq and Syria last year has brought a reign of terror to those unhappy countries, and unlike this year, 2015 will arrive with Crimea being part of Russia, not Ukraine.

Leading from behind brings failure. Just ask any Chicago Bears fan. Except of course Barack Obama.
