Demoted QB Jay Cutler says he wants to stay in Chicago


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2014) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, who's been benched for Jimmy Clausen, told reporters he hopes to continue his career in Chicago. "I would like to stay here. I really like it here," Cutler said. "I love the guys in the locker room. This is where I'd like to be."

Cutler signed a seven-year, $126 million contract in January and admitted the deal came with big expectations. "I wish we would have played better, I wish I would have played better," he said. "Then we wouldn't be in this sitaution."

Cutler said he was shocked and disappointed by the benching but called head coach Marc Trestman a "heck of a quarterbacks coach." Asked if he could play for Trestman in 2015, Cutler said, "Yes. ... I think I could. I definitely could."

Cutler has accounted for 30 touchdowns and a league-high 24 turnovers for the 5-9 Bears. His contract guarantees him $15.5 million next season.


Marc Trestman: 'We need a lift at quarterback'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2014) Bears coach Marc Trestman explained his decision to bench Jay Cutler for Jimmy Clausen, saying in a press conference: "I think we need a lift at quarterback. I think we need a spark." Trestman said Cutler will be the backup quarterback Sunday against the Lions.

The coach said he's made no decision about who will start the regular-season finale.

"This is in the best interest of our football team," Trestman said. "We need some better play from the quarterback position."

Cutler leads the league with 24 turnovers. Clausen hasn't started a game since his rookie year of 2010, when he went 1-9 as a starter and played in 13 games with Carolina.

Chicago opened as a 6.5-point home underdog but is now getting 8.5 or 9 points throughout Las Vegas.


Jay Cutler stumbles backward into decent Fantasy showing


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2014) 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
(12/15/2014) 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
(12/12/2014) 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.

Bears QB Jay Cutler turns in strong game Week 14


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/4/2014) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler turned in a strong game Week 14 against the Cowboys.

Things may have looked iffy at the start, but Cutler and the Bears showed some life late in the contest. Cutler did manage to strike early, hitting Martellus Bennett on a 12 yard score in the first quarter. He didn't find the end zone again until the fourth quarter. 

With the team down 28, Cutler started the rally. He hit Alshon Jeffery on a 27 yard touchdown strike, and wound up running in a 10 yard touchdown a few series later. With the team still trailing late, Cutler did toss a game-ending interception from the 10 yard line.

Cutler finished 32 of 46 for 341 yards and two passing touchdowns. He threw one interception and had one rushing score. Cutler finished with 9 rushing yards.

He'll look for more week 15 against the Saints.


Bears QB Jay Cutler tosses one score Week 12


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler had a tough game Week 12 against the Bucs. 

Cutler completed 17 of 27 passes for 130 yards and a score. Chicago could not get any big plays going, averaging just 4.8 yards per completion. He also found himself under pressure, and was sacked three times. Cutler also fumbled once, turning the ball over. He did not have any rushing attempts.

Cutler will look for more against the Lions Week 13. 


Bears QB Jay Cutler throws three touchdowns Week 11


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) 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. 


Jay Cutler still searching for answers


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2014) 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, 


Bears could give Cutler more chances to throw outside pocket


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/4/2014) 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."


Jay Cutler handles tough defense


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/26/2014) Despite going against a defense that entered the day ranked No. 1 against the pass, Bears quarterback Jay Cutler threw three touchdown passes Week 8 at New England, ending a stretch of two straight games with just one touchdown pass.

And when you consider he had two interceptions in back-to-back games before then, meaning Weeks 4 and 5, you could argue this was his best statistical performance in five games.

Now, the score probably had something to do with it. Because the game was already decided at halftime, when Cutler had just 66 yards and a touchdown, the Patriots were content to give up yardage in the second half so long as they prevented the quick score.

Still, Cutler's Fantasy owners had to be encouraged by the performance against a tough defense after he had underwhelmed the last few weeks. Between Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery, Martellus Bennett and Matt Forte, he still has some of the best weapons of any quarterback and will be worth starting more weeks than not going forward.

The Bears are on bye in Week 9 before visiting the Packers in Week 10.


Bears QB Jimmy Clausen sees some time Week 8


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Bears quarterback Jimmy Clausen managed to get in the game Week 8 against the Patriots. 

With the Bears down big, Clausen got a chance to lead the offense. He completed one pass for 22 yards. Clausen had five attempts. The Bears are on a bye Week 9. 


Bears QB Jay Cutler contributes late Week 8


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler turned in a solid game Week 8 against the Patriots.

Cutler's numbers are more deceptive than they seem. The Bears fell behind by quite a bit early, partially due to Cutler turnovers. With the game out of reach, he managed to toss a couple touchdowns. Cutler finished 20 of 30, with 227 yards and three scores. He tossed one interception and lost a fumble during the game. He also had one scramble for 6 yards.

The Bears are on a bye Week 9.


Jay Cutler stumbles in loss to Dolphins


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Consistency has always been the issue for Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, and his performance Sunday was a good example of that how bad things can get.

After opening the season with multiple touchdowns in each of his first five games, Cutler has just two over the last two games. He completed 61.8 percent of his 34 passes Sunday, but managed just 190 yards through the air in Week 7 against the Dolphins, mostly because he could not get on the same page with Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall -- he completed just eight of 17 passes to that duo for 57 yards Sunday. That is obviously not the key to success for him.

When things are going well for Cutler, there is little doubt he can be a strong Fantasy contributor, as he showed in putting up 20-plus Fantasy points in each of his first six games. He will try to get back to that level in Week 8, against a Patriots defense that is surrendering 22.3 Fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks over the last four games. 


Bears QB Jay Cutler does little in Week 8 defeat


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler wasn't much of a factor and was held under 200 passing yards for the second time this season in a disappointing home loss to the Dolphins in Week 7.

Cutler was picked off by Reshad Jones in the second quarter. He bounced back from a slow start with a 10-yard touchdown pass to Matt Forte on the opening drive of the second half, but failed to do much else the rest of the way. He compiled 190 yards through the air while completing 21 of 34 attempts. He added one touchdown and one interception, registering 74.4 passer rating. He was sacked three times and rushed for three yards on two attempts.

Cutler will look to bounce back Week 8 at New England.


Bears' Trestman: Jay Cutler 'played a complete game' Week 6


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2014) Bears coach Marc Trestman was very complimentary Monday of quarterback Jay Cutler after the veteran quarterback threw for 381 yards in a 27-13 win Sunday against the Falcons.

"I thought Jay had an excellent game," Trestman said, per The Chicago Tribune. "He played a complete game. He took care of the football, No. 1. I thought he managed the game very well, managed the adversity that we had in the game. He took some hits, was able to respond to that. We were backed up a few times. We had some long drives. I thought overall he played a very clean game."


There's no slowing Jay Cutler down


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has succeed in a number of different ways, and he found yet another in Week 5 against the Panthers.

Cutler racked up three touchdowns, his fifth multi-score game in a row to open the season, and he did it in a different way than in the past. Entering Sunday's game, all 10 of his touchdown passes had gone to his tight ends or wide receivers, with running back Matt Forte failing to get into the action. However, Forte was the crutch Cutler leaned on all game long Sunday, as the two connected for 105 yards and a touchdown in the game.

Cutler also added a touchdown with his legs, as he finished with 27 Fantasy points. Cutler has been picked off twice in three of his five games, but has still managed to reach at least 20 Fantasy points in each of his games. Cutler has a great matchup on the way in Week 6 against the Falcons, and should be active in nearly all Fantasy leagues. 


Bears QB Jay Cutler folds down the stretch in Sunday loss


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler performed well Sunday - until it mattered the most.

Cutler finished 28 of 36 for 289 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. But one of those picks with just under six minutes remaining allowed Carolina to score the game-tying field goal. Cutler also fumbled with a minute remaining to snuff out the team's last hopes.

A tipped interception tossed by Cutler in the first quarter was followed to a prolific passing display. Cutler fired a 10-yard scoring strike to running back Matt Forte two minutes later and ran the same distance in for a touchdown soon thereafer. He fired a 25-yard touchdown pass to Alshon Jeffery four minutes into the second quarter and continued to rack up the yards.

Cutler was 23 for 27 for 245 yards at one point before his collapse. He will try to finish the job next Sunday when the Bears travel to Atlanta.


Jay Cutler has a chance to bounce back


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2014) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler will look to bounce back from his worst game of the season when he takes on the Panthers in Week 5.

Cutler tossed six touchdowns without an interception in Weeks 2 and 3, before his two-pick performance against the Packers last Sunday. Still, he came out of the game with 18 Fantasy points, and has tossed at least two touchdowns in each game so far, so it isn't all bad.

He gets to take on a Panthers defense that was badly victimized by the pass last week, as Joe Flacco tossed three touchdowns and racked up 31 Fantasy points against them. The Panthers have yet to hold a quarterback below 15 Fantasy points this season, while allowing multiple touchdowns in three of four games.

As hard as it can be to trust Cutler at times, this is not the time to turn away from him. Both Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard consider him a top-12 quarterback for Week 5, so consider him a solid No. 1 option.

 


Bad habits resurface for Jay Cutler


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/28/2014) For one game anyway, Bears quarterback Jay Cutler looked like the inconsistent passer who tormented Fantasy owners for his first four years with the Bears. He started out well enough with two touchdown passes in the first half before throwing two interceptions in the second half, ending productive drives for the Bears and turning them into scoring opportunities for the Packers. They were his first two interceptions since the two he had in Week 1.

One game is no cause for alarm, especially when the opponent has historically had Cutler's number (he's now thrown 19 interceptions against the Packers to just 13 touchdown passes), but it's a reminder that, for all the promise of the Bears offense, you may want to have a decent backup for Cutler just in case he goes bad again.

His Week 5 matchup at Carolina -- a team that started out great defensively before falling on hard times the last two weeks -- should be an interesting one. Personally, after the way Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco torched the Panthers in Week 4, I wouldn't pay a second thought to sitting Cutler.


Pair of Bears pitch in offensively in Week 4


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Backup quarterback Jimmy Clausen and wideout Josh Morgan made minor contributions to the Bears offense Sunday against Green Bay.

Clausen completed his lone pass for nine yards in relief of Jay Cutler. Morgan racked up three receptions for 24 yards. Two of those catches came in the fourth quarter.


Second-half disaster spells doom for Jay Cutler


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) All was well for Bears quarterback Jay Cutler in Green Bay on Sunday. Then came the second half.

Cutler completed 14 of 20 passes with 165 yards and scoring strikes to Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery before intermission. But he hit on just 8 of 14 for 91 yards and two interceptions thereafter in a lopsided loss. The pair of picks creeped his lifetime total against the Packers to 20.

The veteran, who also rushed for 29 yards on three carries, took 8:30 off the clock on the opening drive before hitting Marshall for the touchdown. He then threw for 118 yards in the second quarter, but it all went south from there.

Cutler will have a chance to redeem himself when Chicago travels to Carolina in Week 5.


Jay Cutler turns in workmanlike effort


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/22/2014) For the second straight week, Bears quarterback Jay Cutler minimized mistakes in an effective but not spectacular performance. Cutler hit 23 of 38 throws for 225 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions in Monday's 27-19 win at the Jets. He also ran five times for 14 yards.

Cutler lost a fumble, the first turnover he's committed since Week 1. And the Jets dropped an easy interception. Still, Cutler is up to eight touchdowns and three turnovers through three games. Cutler threw both touchdowns to tight end Martellus Bennett as No. 1 receiver Brandon Marshall struggled with an ankle injury.

Cutler plays the Packers in Week 4.


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.
