Report: Jay Cutler to be benched Week 16
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(12/17/14) The Bears will bench starting quarterback Jay Cutler Week 16 against the Lions, according to ESPN.
The move comes as a big surprise given the seven-year, $126 million contract Cutler signed in January. Cutler has had a big problem with turnovers this season, throwing 18 interceptions and fumbling 12 times. The move could mark the end of Cutler's season as the starter, and puts his future in Chicago in jeopardy.
The team will turn to Jimmy Clausen to replace Cutler.
Jay Cutler stumbles backward into decent Fantasy showing
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(12/16/14) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler's stat line looked better than he did in Week 15's loss to the Saints Monday.
Cutler finished with 17 Fantasy points, a solid showing overall, but that doesn't quite tell the whole story. Cutler tossed two touchdowns in the fourth quarter with the Bears mostly out of it, including one with 30 seconds left in the game that put him back in a respectable Fantasy showing.
Cutler has had a mostly disastrous season for the Bears, but he hasn't been a total waste in Fantasy. He has at least 17 Fantasy points in four of his last six games, including a 19-point showing against the Lions in Week 13. He takes on the Lions again in Week 16, and though he isn't a great starting option, he still has some value as a borderline top-10 option.
Jay Cutler seizes NFL lead in interceptions
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(12/15/14) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler's miserable season got worse Monday night in a 31-15 home loss to the Saints. Cutler completed 17 of 31 passes for 194 yards and two meaningless fourth-quarter touchdowns with three interceptions, giving him an NFL-high 18 picks this year.
And he took a seven-sack beating.
Cutler overtook Jaguars rookie Blake Bortles (17 INTs) for the interception lead and has a league-high 24 turnovers. That's more turnovers than 23 NFL teams have committed.
Cutler got picked on the game's first series. His off-target throw deflected off tight end Martellus Bennett, and corner Patrick Robinson made a diving interception. Cutler's other two picks came on a virtual Hail Mary at the end of the first half and an overthrow intended for Alshon Jeffery.
Cutler threw for 56 yards in the first half with a 14.9 passer rating. He broke the shutout early in the fourth quarter, hitting wideout Marquess Wilson for a 1-yard score and Bennett for a 2-point conversion. Cutler threw a 7-yard touchdown to Jeffery with 30 seconds left.
Cutler, who ran once for 20 yards, plays the Lions in Week 16.
Bears OC Aaron Kromer issues public apology to QB Jay Cutler
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(12/12/14) Bears offensive coordinator Aaron Kromer addressed the media and issued a public apology to quarterback Jay Cutler on Friday, according to the Chicago Tribune. Kromer denied making comments about the franchise having buyer's remorse about Cutler's contract, but did admit to criticizing Cutler's play to the NFL Network recently.|
"I made a very poor decision talking about things outside the building. I recognize I made a mistake," Kromer said.
Following Kromer's press conference, Cutler addressed the media and called it a "dead issue." Cutler also said he thinks it's fair that his future is being questioned by the media. "Whatever happens, we'll talk about that when it happens I guess," he said, per ESPN.
Report: Bears OC issued tearful apology to Jay Cutler
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(12/11/14) Bears offensive coordinator Aaron Kromer issued a tearful apology to quarterback Jay Cutler during a team meeting this week, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Kromer denied making comments about the franchise having buyer's remorse about Cutler's contract, but did admit to criticizing Cutler's play to Ian Rapoport. Kromer admitted to having the meeting, saying "I said what I had to say to the players."
It's unclear how things went over in the room. "I'm still kind of trying to sort my way through this to be honest," one player said. "It's one of the most (messed) up things I have ever seen." Another player agreed, saying "it's a (messed) up situation."
Things haven't been as smooth under Year 2 of Marc Trestman's regime, leading many to speculate whether the team will make sweeping changes during the offseason.
|The Bears locked up Jay Cutler with a long contract extension this spring after he posted some promising totals in his first season with coach Marc Trestman. Then, after opening last season with five games with 20-plus Fantasy points in his first six, Cutler got hurt, missed some games, came back too soon and got hurt again and missed more time before ending the year with 19-plus points in two of his last three games. For Cutler it's all about staying healthy, a problem he's had regardless of the Bears' offensive line or game plan. He hasn't played 16 games in any of his last four seasons and has missed at least five games in two of his last three. But with his completion percentage his best since 2007 and his quarterback rating at an all-time high, Cutler did show he can make great use of his receivers. Cutler's right on the fence of being a No. 1 Fantasy quarterback, though it would be in everyone's best interests to draft another quarterback if they spend a mid-round pick on Cutler since he's probably not a cinch for 16 games.
