|Trestman wants Jay Cutler for 16 games |
|by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(6/10/14) Bears coach Marc Trestman said that quarterback Jay Cutler has prioritized his durability this offseason with hopes of ending a four-season streak of missing at least one game, reports the Chicago Tribune.
"Jay has really worked hard in the offseason, and he has always been a hard worker in his conditioning and his training, but he has really amped it up," Trestman said. "He’s bigger, he’s stronger than a year ago and he has really focused on staying physically well for the entire season. That’s No. 1 — we’ve got to keep him standing, keep him safe. And we see the improvements he’s made in working on different issues in his mechanics, and I think he’s feeling very comfortable back there in Year 2."
Cutler missed five games in 2013 and failed to finish two others because of injuries he suffered while being hit. A groin injury he suffered while being sacked sidelined him for one start. And he later sprained his left ankle on a hit and missed four games.
"I thought that we took pretty darn good care of him," Trestman said. "I think he would agree. We’re going to try to do better this time around, but we’re trying to get rid of those things. I can't speak for the past; I can only speak for the past as recent as last year. It was really a unique, awkward injury that he had. Hopefully we can get him through safe and get him to play a 16-game season. I know that’s predominant on his mind. If we can keep him safe and healthy, we feel like we can be in every game."
|Jay Cutler's durability a big issue for Bears |
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
(3/27/14) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler won't have Josh McCown backing him up in 2014, which makes Cutler's durability a huge concern. Cutler missed five games last season with groin and ankle injuries and has not played all 16 games since 2009.
Coach Marc Trestman told the Chicago Tribune that the No. 1 goal for Cutler is "to get him through the season safely. That his durability is good, his availability is good. And then, not only him, but to get everybody to elevate their game another step.”
|Ex-Bears GM calls Jay Cutler inconsistent, unpoised |
|by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(2/12/14) Former Bears general manager Jerry Angelo critiqued each of the 32 starting quarterbacks for a story on The SidelineView.com and had some constructive notes on Jay Cutler. Angelo traded for Cutler when he ran the Bears.
"Has all the physical tools, but inconsistent in the clutch," Angelo wrote about Cutler. "Mostly due to a lack of poise. He's not comfortable reading defenses and consequently locks onto a favorite or pre-determined target, that may or may not be the right choice. The less he's asked to see the better he is. A better half field general, than a full field one."
Cutler had one of his best years as a Bear in 2013, completing 63.1 pct. of his passes for 2,621 yards and 19 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in 11 games, missing five games due to leg injuries.
|Staying in Chicago good for Jay Cutler's Fantasy value |
|by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(1/2/14) The Bears' decision to stick with Jay Cutler -- reportedly for seven years and $54 million guaranteed -- suggests they're very happy to have him lead the offense. Based on how he did this year I'd agree.
He effectively played in only 10 games this year but in them he had over 250 yards six times, two-plus touchdowns seven times and 20-plus Fantasy points six times. It's not Peyton Manning-type numbers but it's not bad either. Cutler had as many 20-point games as Andrew Luck, Colin Kaepernick, Tom Brady and Robert Griffin III while playing in fewer games than each of them.
I really like the idea of continuity in Marc Trestman's offense. Not only will Cutler be in it for the second year in a row but other principals like Matt Forte, Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery and Martellus Bennett will be there too. The offensive line should pretty much stay the same. I wouldn't overlook this aspect -- when you consider the best quarterbacks in Fantasy it's been because they've been in the same system for years, often with the same players. Cutler will have that now.
I really like the idea of waiting for Cutler on Draft Day, pairing him with another quarterback in the middle rounds.
|Jay Cutler's new deal worth $126 million |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(1/2/14) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler's new deal is seven-years, $126 million, according to NFL.com.
Cutler is guaranteed $54 million. The breakdown of his yearly salary is not known at this time. The $54 million guarantee ranks seventh among active quarterbacks, according to 670 The Score. The deal was announced by general manager Phil Emery at a press conference Thursday.
|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.
