Bears QB Jay Cutler throws three touchdowns Week 11
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(11/16/14) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler tossed three touchdowns Week 11 against the Vikings.
Cutler completed 31 of 43 passes for 330 yards. He was able to hit his receivers deep, averaging 7.6 yards per completion. Cutler was kept clean in the pocket, and was not sacked during the contest. Cutler did throw two interceptions, so it wasn't all good. Still, Cutler had a nice game utilizing the size of his receivers. Alshon Jeffery hauled in a 27 yard score in the second quarter, and Brandon Marshall followed it up with a 44 yard touchdown reception. Marshall would strike again on a 4 yard score later in the game.
Cutler will look for more Week 12 against the Buccaneers.
Report: Bears could put Jay Cutler on trading block in offseason
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(11/16/14) The Bears could trade quarterback Jay Cutler after the 2014 season and save $12.5 million against the salary cap, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Schefter reports other teams will have interest in Cutler, who has faced a lot of scrutiny as the Bears are 3-6 through nine games.
Cutler is completing a career-high 66.4 percent of his passes in 2014. He is averaging 262.8 passing yards per game, while totaling 18 passing touchdowns and 10 interceptions in nine games.
Jay Cutler still searching for answers
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(11/10/14) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is on pace for a career-high in touchdowns this season, but his recent play has left a lot to be desired, as he showed yet again in Week 10.
Cutler is averaging two touchdowns per game this season, but much of that came in the season's first five weeks, when he racked up 13 total scores. In four games since, including Week 10's debacle against the Packers, Cutler has just seven touchdowns, including three games with just one.
The most concerning part about his recent play is that Cutler has had his full complement of weapons available and has still struggled this badly. Wide receiver Brandon Marshall was limited badly by an ankle injury through the first five games, but has been a full-go over the last four, which has somehow coincided with Cutler's struggles.
Though the Bears' offensive line has had injury issues, Cutler really doesn't have a lot of excuses at this point. He has struggled against both good and bad pass defenses during this stretch, and just hasn't looked like the quarterback we expected. With a tough matchup on the way in Week 11 against the Vikings,
Jay Cutler throws two picks in blowout loss vs. Packers
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(11/9/14) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler had a night to forget Sunday, completing 22 of his 37 pass attempts for 272 yards with one touchdown, two interceptions and one lost fumble in his team's 55-14 blowout loss against the Packers in Week 10.
Cutler could get nothing going in the first half as the Packers continued to rack up touchdowns and put the game out of reach by halftime. He could have had a few more turnovers as he put the ball in the hands of Packers' defenders throughout the night, though they only managed two interceptions in all. One came on a deflection of the helmet of a Bears lineman, and the pick was returned 82 yards for the Packers' seventh touchdown of the night.
Cutler has been uneven this season, and the Bears have now dropped five of their last six games, giving up more than 50 points in each of their last two games. The Bears signal caller will look to rebound against the Vikings in Week 11.
Bears could give Cutler more chances to throw outside pocket
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(11/4/14) Bears coach Marc Trestman said after watching plenty of game film during the team's Week 9 bye that the team could start having quarterback Jay Cutler throw more outside the pocket, according to ESPN.
"We’ve talked about all of that over the bye week, and how we can do some different things for him to help him," Trestman said. "We’ll continue to work on that, and see how that goes in the second half."
Trestman explained that having a quarterback throw more while on the run challenges opposing defenses.
"I think it has a residual effect on a lot of different things: the pass rush, on the passing spot, on how it applies to your run game," Trestman said. "Because a lot of times when you’re moving the pocket, it’s relative to a play-action fake or movement of some kind where you’re faking a run, and you’re moving outside the pocket. So there’s a residual effect on pass rush and in the run game when you can do those kinds of things."

Week 12 Start 'Em and Sit 'Em
The Broncos are suddenly struggling offensively but that could change in Week 12, led by C.J. Anderson. Our Jamey Eisenberg shares his outlook in his latest Start 'Em and Sit 'Em.
|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.
