|Jay Cutler tosses a touchdown against Jaguars |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(8/14/14) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler threw a touchdown against the Jaguars Thursday.
The Bears offense didn't see a lot of action early, as turnovers limited them to just three plays most of the way through the first quarter. That allowed Cutler to remain in the game into the second quarter. On the team's third possession, Cutler was able to lead a 10-play drive, leading to a touchdown. The Bears offensive line gave Cutler a ton of time all night. He finished 7 for 9, for 75 yards. One of Cutler's incompletions was a drop by Brandon Marshall, so his night could have been even better.
|Jay Cutler 'much quicker with his reads' in Year 2 |
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
(8/13/14) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, in Year 2 of coach Marc Trestman's offense, "looks like a quarterback who has done this before," reports the Chicago Sun-Times.
"He’s getting better," Trestman said. "He understands what we’re doing. The dialogue is fast. We understand what we need to get done. Our communication is very, very good. It’s a blast to work with him on and off the field."
Offensive coordinator Aaron Kromer offered more detail on Cutler's improvement.
"Jay has learned to solve his own problems on the field," Kromer said. "He’s much quicker this year with his reads. He knew them last year — don’t get me wrong — but it’s happening even faster for him.
"He’s understanding everything he’s seeing. He’s seeing the defensive line. He’s making the calls of who we want to Mike [identifying the middle linebacker]. He’s directing everything and then getting us in the correct call if we give him more than one play. It’s just happening at a faster pace, and that’s going to help our offense."
|Jay Cutler strikes paydirt in first exhibition game |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(8/8/14) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler found the end zone in his first game of the preseason Friday night against the Eagles at Soldier Field.
Cutler played two series of offense and on his final series, he led his team to a 13-play, 69-yard drive, which resulted in a 10-yard touchdown pass to Zach Miller in the first quarter. He completed 9 of 13 pass attempts for 85 yards, with a touchdown and no interceptions, finishing with a 112.7 passer rating.
|Jay Cutler 'poised to take major step' |
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
(7/29/14) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is "poised to take a major step in Year 2 of Marc Trestman's offense," reports ESPN.com. Offensive coordinator Aaron Kromer told the website that Cutler has taken "more and more control by the day."
"Not that he didn’t before; he did," Kromer said. "But with his comfort level with all the things we’re trying to get done, he’s able to solve some of his own problems on the field, even when he didn’t maybe have that answer taught to him yet. It’s really helped that Jay has studied really hard all offseason. He’s worked on technique. He’s been one of the hardest-working guys on the team this offseason."
Cutler posted a career-best passer rating of 89.2 last year. His 63.1 completion percentage ranked second in franchise history.
|Marc Trestman impressed with Jay Cutler |
|by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(7/21/14) Bears coach Marc Trestman sees growth in quarterback Jay Cutler heading into this season, reports the Chicago Tribune.
"The number one thing from my standpoint is the way that he has invested in the Chicago Bears," Trestman said. "Jay has been emotionally and selflessly invested in ways that he wouldn't talk about. But he really cares about this organization and every day he's a very, very observant person and he's a very proactive person in terms of inserting himself in all areas of this building to help this organization get better. ... It has been very, very impressive to watch how he has worked intelligently and selflessly to do that."
Trestman also pointed to the analytics study general manager Phil Emory compiled on Cutler's play, while touting his quarterback's ability to grasp offensive concepts from the neck up.
"I have great respect for Jay's football intelligence and his skillset. When we came in here, we knew he had the skillset," Trestman said. "The issue was, 'Could we work together on a daily basis?' because we both love football and we want to help our football team. And the answer to that question was a clear yes."

NFL's 10 most interesting: Romo (again!), Manziel to ride roller coaster
When picking the NFL's 10 most interesting players, it's easy to start in Dallas, where Tony Romo produces for a team with leaky defense, and gets blamed for the failures. In Cleveland, Johnny Manziel is starting what looks like a career more about perception than what he can do on the field.
|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.
