Jay Cutler shreds 49ers for four touchdown passes


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/15/2014) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler played one of the finest games of his career Week 2 at San Francisco. After a ragged start, Cutler picked apart the 49ers. He hit 23 of 34 throws for 176 yards and four touchdowns with no interceptions or fumbles, and he ran five times for 25 yards.

It was an unusually discplined performance for Cutler, who posted a 119.2 passer rating.

Cutler began to heat up in the second quarter. Wideout Brandon Marshall helped him out with a ridiculous, one-handed 17-yard touchdown catch right before halftime, and Cutler was consistently brilliant in the second half, throwing just one incompletion.

He's up to six touchdown passes entering Week 3 at the Jets on Monday Night Football.


Report: Bears to part ways with Jordan Palmer


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2014) The Bears will release quarterback Jordan Palmer, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter on Sunday. Palmer lost the backup job to Jimmy Clausen in the preseason. He passed for 225 yards while completing 21 of 30 attempts, with one touchdown and one interception.

Jay Cutler picked off once in dress rehearsal game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler endured a shaky performance Friday night against the Seahawks in exhibition play.

Cutler was held out of the end zone and his last pass of the night resulted in an interception by Jeremy Lane late in the second quarter. He was sacked twice and compiled 157 yards through the air while completing 12 of 20 passes. He finished the game with a 64.0 passer rating.

Jay Cutler 'much quicker with his reads' in Year 2


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/13/2014) 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."

Jimmy Clausen to play ahead of Jordan Palmer on Thursday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/12/2014) Bears coach Marc Trestman said quarterback Jimmy Clausen will relieve Jay Cutler in Thursday's preseason game against the Jaguars, with Jordan Palmer playing third. Clausen and Palmer are fighting for the backup job.

Clausen hit 7 of 13 throws for 150 yards and two touchdowns in the preseason opener, while Palmer went 8 for 11 for 104 yards with one touchdown and one interception.


Jay Cutler strikes paydirt in first exhibition game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2014) 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
(7/29/2014) 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.


Bears profess confidence in Jordan Palmer


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/7/2014) With Josh McCown in Tampa Bay, Jordan Palmer likely will enter the season as the Bears' No. 2 quarterback behind Jay Cutler. Jerrod Johnson is the only other QB on the roster.

"I feel very good about [Palmer],” coach Marc Trestman told the Chicago Sun-Times. "I feel good about his preparation. His work ethic is very similar to Josh’s. He spends a lot of time here. He’s taken over the tradition now of getting these new guys ready.

"At this point, you’d have to feel good about Palmer’s experience. He doesn’t have a lot of hits on him right now. He’s very much engaged in the offense."

Palmer has thrown 15 career passes. The paper said Chicago might add a quarterback before camp, but it could be an undrafted free agent.


Jay Cutler's durability a big issue for Bears


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2014) 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.”


Bears give Jordan Palmer 'a lot of credit'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2014) The Bears lost backup quarterback Josh McCown to the Buccaneers, but coach Marc Trestman said he gives Jordan Palmer "a lot of credit" for how he played in the 2013 preseason.

“He literally learned the offense on his own because we didn’t have time to work daily with him." Trestman told the Chicago Tribune. "He worked. He worked overtime and he learned the offense and came in and played admirably in the preseason. He moved the football team and was very sufficient.

“He’s got a lot of experience and not a lot of wear and tear. He’s been around a long time. Obviously, we’re going to have another one in there and see how that goes over the next couple of months.”

General manager Phil Emery expects to sign a free agent to compete with Palmer for the backup job.


Josh McCown 'willing' to leave Bears


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/2/2014) Quarterback Josh McCown said "it's hard to want to be anywhere else" than Chicago. But the impending free agent is a realist, too. "I have to be willing to go somewhere else, if that's how it breaks," he told the Chicago Tribune.

McCown would back up Jay Cutler in Chicago. He'd compete for a starting job elsewhere.

"This is probably going to be the last time I stand in free agency with this kind of leverage," McCown, 34, told the paper. "So there's an understanding of an opportunity here to gain some more resources both to take care of our family and to do more good with."


Buccaneers, Bears have 'strong interest' in Josh McCown


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2014) Bears impending free agent Josh McCown is drawing "strong interest" from Chicago as well as the Buccaneers, with the Jets another possibility, reports NFL Network. It's the latest indication of a strong market for the 34-year-old quarterback, who threw 13 touchdowns against one interception last season.

McCown would back up Jay Cutler in Chicago, but would have a chance to start in Tampa Bay.


Josh McCown market heating up


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2014) Bears quarterback Josh McCown has said he wants to stay in Chicago, but his appeal on the free agent market could lead to his departure, reports ESPN.com. The Buccaneers and Jets have emerged as potential suitors for McCown, 34.

McCown threw 13 touchdowns and one interception and posted a 109.0 passing rating in relief of the injured Jay Cutler last season. The Bears went 3-2 in McCown's starts.


Josh McCown might return to Bears over starting job elsewhere


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/29/2014) Quarterback Josh McCown, an impending free agent, said in a radio interview that he wants to remain with the Bears if at all possible, reports the Chicago Tribune. McCown said he won't rush to leave Chicago for any starting job.

“If an opportunity does come along to start, where is that team? What kind of team is that? And so on and so forth,” McCown told Waddle and Silverman on WMVP-AM 1000. “I’ve had opportunities. But it’s hard to leave a team, especially as a quarterback, in an offensive structure like we have and that we’re building and with the pieces that you have around you.

“Those things are all important as you look at this," he continued. "So it’s not just a cut and dried, ‘Oh this team will give you a chance to be a starter so let’s go there.’ I think it’s weighting what all is there and what that opportunity entails. ... It’s going to have to look really good for me to want to go somewhere else. Because again, my heart is in Chicago and that’s where I want to be.”

McCown, 34, made five starts and finished three other games in place of the injured Jay Cutler. He completed 66.5 percent of his passes for 1,829 yards and 13 touchdowns with one interception.


Staying in Chicago good for Jay Cutler's Fantasy value


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1/2/2014) 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 on return: 'We'll get it worked out'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/30/2013) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, an impending free agent, said on his radio show that he wants to return to Chicago and that he expects a deal to get done, reports ESPN.com. "We'll find equal ground and we'll get it worked out," Cutler said.

Cutler said his agent and the Bears had no contract talks during the season.


Jay Cutler nearly gets it done in season finale


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler had never passed for more touchdowns than interceptions in a game against the Packers. He changed that trend despite throwing a late interception during Sunday’s home loss to the Packers in Week 17.

With the NFC North title on the line, Cutler got off to a fast start as he tossed a 4-yard touchdown pass to Matt Forte in the opening quarter. He then found a spinning Brandon Marshall for a 5-yard strike early in the fourth quarter. A Hail Mary pass from Cutler was intercepted by Sam Shields in the end zone to end the game, and the season for the Bears.

Cutler completed 15 of 24 passes for 226 yards, with two touchdowns and one interception in a 33-28 defeat. Cutler finished the season with 2,621 passing yards while throwing for 19 touchdowns and 12 interceptions over 11 games. He is set to become a free agent in 2014.

Jay Cutler still a solid start for must-win home game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2013) With two games under his belt after an ankle injury, Bears quarterback Jay Cutler will be fighting for a playoff spot at home against the Packers in Week 17.

Cutler has averaged 243.5 passing yards while throwing for four touchdowns and three interceptions over his first two games back from injury. He has thrown a pick in each of his last four games played. He has not faced Green Bay this season.

Luckily for Cutler, the Packers have allowed nine touchdowns to opposing quarterbacks over the previous four games. The Packers have allowed 248.8 passing yards per game this season, which ranks 21st in the league. Opposing quarterbacks have scored 21.00 Fantasy points per game against Green Bay this season. Consider him a solid starting option heading into a must-win game at home against his NFC North rival.

Jay Cutler extends interception streak


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler and several other offensive starters were pulled in the fourth quarter at Philadelphia with Chicago trailing 47-11. Cutler's last play was a pick-6, Brandon Boykin picking off the telegraphed pass for a 54-yard touchdown.

It was Cutler's fourth straight game with an interception. In that stretch, he has five touchdown passes and five picks. Sunday night he went 20 of 35 for 222 yards with a touchdown and the interception before being replaced by Josh McCown.

Late in the third quarter, Cutler hit Brandon Marshall for a 6-yard touchdown and Earl Bennett for the 2-point conversion.

Despite being outplayed by McCown this season, Cutler is expected to start Week 17 when Chicago hosts Green Bay with the NFC North at stake.


Rust knocked off, Jay Cutler a high-end play Week 16


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2013) Aside from being cleated once, Bears quarterback Jay Cutler said he emerged from the win at Cleveland in good shape. His left ankle should be fine for Sunday's appetizing matchup at Philadelphia.

Cutler started poorly Week 15, throwing two first-half interceptions, after missing four straight games. By the end he had 265 passing yards and three touchdowns as Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall dominated Cleveland's secondary. Cutler averaged 8.5 yards per attempt, second most this season.

The Eagles give up the 9th-most Fantasy points to quarterbacks and just got shredded by Matt Cassel for 382 yards and two passing scores. Cutler has thrown multiple touchdowns in six of his eight full games. Consider him a top-end QB1 on Sunday night.


Jay Cutler throws three touchdowns in return


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/15/2013) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, playing in his first game since Week 10, completed 22-of-31 passes for 265 yards and three touchdown's in Sunday's 38-31 win over the Browns. Cutler was intercepted twice. 

Cutler didn't look especially sharp -- his 45-yard touchdown pass to Alshon Jeffery, for instance, was a high-arching lob that Jeffery somehow grabbed while situated between two defenders -- but Cutler was hit on that play, drawing a roughing the passer call. Cutler did manage to bounce back nicely from two first half interceptions (both with Brandon Marshall as the intended target, and both with the ball having bouced off hte hands of a player initially) to lead the team to victory. 

As far as the ankle injury that had kept him out for four games, Cutler was limping a little bit intermittently, but never left the game. 

The Bears play the Eagles in Week 16. 


Jay Cutler takes the field Sunday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler makes his return to the starting lineup Sunday, as he is officially active for Week 15 against the Browns. Cutler had missed four games due to an ankle injury, but was named the starter earlier in the week. 

Bears to announce quarterback decision Thursday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/11/2013) Bears coach Marc Trestman said quarterback Jay Cutler's status for Sunday's game in Cleveland will be determined after Wednesday's walkthrough and publicized Thursday, reports the Chicago Tribune. Cutler has missed four straight games with an ankle injury, but Trestman said he was "optimistic" Cutler would get cleared.

If Cutler can't play, red hot Josh McCown will get another start.


Marc Trestman: Jay Cutler will start when healthy


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2013) Despite Josh McCown's five-touchdown performance vs. Dallas, Bears coach Marc Trestman reiterated that Jay Cutler will start at quarterback once he's recovered from his ankle injury.

"There's no change in the plan," Trestman told reporters after McCown threw for 348 yards and four touchdowns and ran for a score in the 45-28 win. "When Jay's ready to play, he'll be playing."

Cutler practiced last week but did not get cleared to play, missing his fourth straight game. The Bears visit Cleveland on Sunday.


Jay Cutler wants to return to lineup Week 14


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/2/2013) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler wants to return to the lineup Week 14 vs. Dallas, but he said Monday he hasn't been cleared yet after missing the last three games with an ankle injury. The Bears are 1-2 in the last three games.
