Jay Cutler makes dinner reservations for Bears' pick Kevin White


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/1/2015) The Bears selected wide receiver Kevin White with their first-round pick in the draft. Quarterback Jay Cutler made sure to welcome his new pass catcher to Chicago, by getting him dinner reservations for Friday night.

"He’s a cool guy, laid back," White said, per ESPN. "He’s a man of the city who said if I needed anything I should let him know. I’m going to dinner tonight with the family, and he kind of set that up."

White wouldn't divulge the name of the restaurant. "Some fancy nice dinner, I guess," he said.


John Fox preaching open competition, even at QB


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/26/2015) New Bears coach John Fox called it "all an open competition" when asked if he could see a scenario in which quarterback Jay Cutler had to compete for the starting job, reports ESPN.com. Jimmy Clausen is Cutler's projected backup.

“I would say logically if you are looking at the depth chart and you are asking me for it two weeks before we can really get anything going, I’d say  be [Cutler would be] first on the depth chart, yeah,” Fox said.

“Obviously you’ve got to start somewhere and my experience in football and really anything is it’s not where you start the race it’s where you finish it. We have to start the race with some kind of lineup, and we have not discussed that in depth. We have not presented it to our players in depth. I think it’s important for them to see it maybe more than you guys. I’ve had guys who were third on the depth chart that by the time we started the opener were first. I can’t tell you what’s happening. If I could I’d be at some race track somewhere.”


John Fox aiming to rebuild QB Jay Cutler's confidence


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/25/2015) New Bears coach John Fox said quarterback Jay Cutler might have gotten to the point last year "where he lacked confidence," reports the Chicago Tribune.

"To build that back up, it’s going to take time, daily," Fox added. "It takes trust, like any relationship.”

Fox plans to help Cutler, who committed 24 turnovers last season, by building a strong defense and relying more on the running game. Fox praised how the Cowboys used Tony Romo last year in tandem with NFL rushing leader DeMarco Murray.

“Football-wise, there are things you can do in coaching to minimize some of the exposure,” Fox said. “Playing defense. Playing complementary football is going to be something that helps. I liken it a little bit, not being critical, to Tony Romo. I think there had been different things said. I know Tony personally. He’s a tremendous competitor. I thought he had one of his better seasons a year ago with that same kind of build-up. With success comes confidence.”


Bears announce they're sticking with QB Jay Cutler


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/11/2015) Not that they really had any choice, but the Bears confirmed Wednesday that Jay Cutler will be their starting quarterback. "We've made that decision," GM Ryan Pace said, per ESPN.com. "We're moving forward with Jay Cutler as our starting quarterback."

Cutler, 31, signed a seven-year, $126 million contract last offseason and is guaranteed $15.5 million this year. If he's on the roster at 4 p.m. ET Thursday, $10 million of his $16 million salary in 2016 also becomes guaranteed.

Pace said the Bears never explored trading Cutler, per ESPN. He accounted for 30 touchdowns and 24 turnovers last season while throwing for 3,812 yards, the second-highest total of his career.

(3/10/2015) The Bears are not interested in trading embattled quarterback Jay Cutler, and "fully expect" him to be their quarterback next season, Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports on Tuesday.

Cutler, 31, signed a seven-year, $126 million contract with the Bears last offseason and is guaranteed to make $15.5 million next season. He threw for 3,812 passing yards, the most since 2008 when he was in Denver. He added 28 touchdowns and a league-high 18 interceptions in 2014.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2015) Bears coach John Fox met with the media on Tuesday and remained noncommittal to longtime starter Jay Cutler, dancing around questions about his future with the team, reports ESPN Chicago.

"We're not up against a deadline," Fox said, per the Chicago Tribune. "We'll keep you posted."

Cutler's "ability and talent (are there). A lot more goes into it. We're evaluating that as we speak," Fox said, per the Plain Dealer.

Fox also revealed that he met free agent quarterback Josh McCown prior to his combine press conference, adding that "he's the right kind of guy...that you want on your football team."

General manager Ryan Pace also said the Bears will be patient on their decision, and refused to declare Cutler the starter.

Bears' Fox on free agent Josh McCown: 'He's the right kind of guy'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2015) Free agent quarterback Josh McCown met with new Bears coach John Fox at the combine in Indianapolis on Wednesday, reports NFL.com. Fox was noncommittal to longtime starter Jay Cutler during his combine news conference.

"We're not up against a deadline," Fox said, per the Chicago Tribune. "We'll keep you posted."

McCown enjoyed his best season with the Bears in 2013 before he left Chicago for Tampa Bay in 2014. He was released by the Buccaneers after one season where he threw for 2,206 yards, 11 touchdowns and 14 interceptions in 11 games. The 35-year-old veteran has just 49 starts in his resume.

"He's the right kind of guy...that you want on your football team," Fox said. "We'll see where it goes."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Bears will turn back to Jay Cutler over Jimmy Clausen (concussion)


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2014) Bears coach Marc Trestman will turn back to Jay Cutler after Chicago announced that Jimmy Clausen will not play Week 17 against Minnesota due to delayed symptoms of a concussion.

Clausen absorbed a helmet-to-helmet hit by defensive end Ezekiel Ansah as he slid to the ground during a 20-14 defeat to Detroit. He was checked multiple times after hit but did not exhibit any signs or symptoms of a concussion until he left the stadium Sunday night. He was taken to the hospital for further testing, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.

Chicago is currently a 6 1/2-point underdog at Minnesota.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is expected to be back in Chicago next season, likely with a new offensive staff, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora on Sunday.

Cutler has accounted for 30 touchdowns and a league-high 24 turnovers for the 5-9 Bears. He has the seventh-best completion percentage (66.1) among all quarterbacks this season. He signed a seven-year, $126 million contract in January and is guaranteed to make $15.5 million next season.


Demoted QB Jay Cutler says he wants to stay in Chicago


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(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 | Senior Analyst
(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.


Report: Jay Cutler to be benched Week 16


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2014) The Bears will bench starting quarterback Jay Cutler Week 16 against the Lions, according to ESPN.

The move comes as a big surprise given the seven-year, $126 million contract Cutler signed in January. Cutler has had a big problem with turnovers this season, throwing 18 interceptions and fumbling 12 times. The move could mark the end of Cutler's season as the starter, and puts his future in Chicago in jeopardy. 

The team will turn to Jimmy Clausen to replace Cutler.


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 | Senior Analyst
(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.

Report: Bears OC issued tearful apology to Jay Cutler


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/11/2014) Bears offensive coordinator Aaron Kromer issued a tearful apology to quarterback Jay Cutler during a team meeting this week, 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 Ian Rapoport. Kromer admitted to having the meeting, saying "I said what I had to say to the players."

It's unclear how things went over in the room. "I'm still kind of trying to sort my way through this to be honest," one player said. "It's one of the most (messed) up things I have ever seen." Another player agreed, saying "it's a (messed) up situation." 

Things haven't been as smooth under Year 2 of Marc Trestman's regime, leading many to speculate whether the team will make sweeping changes during the offseason. 


Bears' Trestman vows Jay Cutler will remain starting quarterback


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2014) After a report came out Sunday saying the Bears are having "buyer's remorse" on quarterback Jay Cutler's contract extension last offseason, coach Marc Trestman vowed his support Cutler.

"As long as Jay is healthy, he'll be playing quarterback," Trestman said at Monday's press conference. "Jay and I, we talk daily. I think he has a very good understanding of how we feel about him." 

Cutler, who has thrown for 3,446 yards and 26 touchdowns with 15 interceptions, signed a seven-year extension worth $126 million and includes $54 million guaranteed. 

Cutler and the Bears face the Saints at home in Week 15. 


Report: Bears having regrets about Jay Cutler's contract


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) The Bears are having a "serious case of buyer's remorse" over quarterback Jay Cutler's contract, according to NFL.com National Insider Ian Rapoport. Cutler signed a seven-year contract extension in January, reportedly worth $126 million and includes $54 million guaranteed.

There are people within the organization that doubt Cutler can lead the team in accomplishing its goals, according to Rapoport. A major issue for Cutler is not being able to check out of bad plays in the run game. It is not the only reason the Bears are averaging 88.7 rushing yards per game, but apparently a major reason.

The Bears are 5-8 and are in last place in the NFC North following Thursday's 41-28 loss to Dallas.


Trestman: Bears to continue to roll with Jay Cutler


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/5/2014) Bears coach Marc Trestman indicated Friday that Jay Cutler would remain the team's starting quarterback over the remainder of the season if he remains healthy rather than backup Jimmy Clausen seeing playing time, ESPN.com reports.

"Jay is our quarterback," Trestman said. "If he’s available to play, he’s going to play. Jimmy is continuing to work in the offense, and he practices. We certainly like having him on our football team, but as we get ready for New Orleans next week, Jay will get the reps and he’ll be playing."

Cutler signed a seven-year contract worth more than $126 million in January. He's completed a career-high 66.8 percent of his passes for 3,446 yards with 26 touchdowns and 15 interceptions in 13 games. He needs just two more touchdown passes to set a new career best in the category.


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 determined to restore semblance of balance


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/1/2014) The Bears had a franchise-low eight rushing attempts in Thursday's loss at Detroit. Matt Forte ran five times for 6 yards, Ka'Deem Carey rushed twice for 8 yards, and quarterback Jay Cutler took a kneeldown.

Cutler, who dropped back to pass 51 times, said the team must be more balanced this Thursday against Dallas.

"It makes things hard," he told the Chicago Tribune. "You want to have some balance even if numbers-wise it's not as balanced as you want it to be. If you're running the ball efficiently and giving the illusion that you're going to run the ball, it definitely helps."

Forte lamented that the team "didn't really run the ball at all, didn't really get a chance to establish it."


Bears QB Jay Cutler throws for two TDs, two INTs in Week 13 loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/27/2014) After recording two first-quarter touchdowns, quarterback Jay Cutler and the Bears offense struggled over the final three quarters during a 34-17 loss Thursday against the Lions. Cutler completed 31 of 48 passes for 280 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions.

Cutler had the offense moving well early in the game, as he opened the scoring with a 10-yard touchdown pass to Alshon Jeffery less than 5 minutes into the game. He then gave Chicago a 14-3 lead with a 6-yard touchdown pass to Jeffery with 3:35 left in the first quarter.

Unfortunately, the only other scoring drive Cutler would lead Chicago on finished with a 35-yard field goal by Robbie Gould in the third quarter.

Cutler has thrown for multiple touchdowns in three of the last five games. He has thrown multiple interceptions in three of his last four games. The Bears are back in action Week 14 vs. Dallas.


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.
