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.


Marc Trestman impressed with Jay Cutler


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/21/2014) 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."


Trestman wants Jay Cutler for 16 games


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/10/2014) Bears coach Marc Trestman said that quarterback Jay Cutler has prioritized his durability this offseason with hopes of ending a four-season streak of missing at least one game, reports the Chicago Tribune.

"Jay has really worked hard in the offseason, and he has always been a hard worker in his conditioning and his training, but he has really amped it up," Trestman said. "He’s bigger, he’s stronger than a year ago and he has really focused on staying physically well for the entire season. That’s No. 1 — we’ve got to keep him standing, keep him safe. And we see the improvements he’s made in working on different issues in his mechanics, and I think he’s feeling very comfortable back there in Year 2."

Cutler missed five games in 2013 and failed to finish two others because of injuries he suffered while being hit. A groin injury he suffered while being sacked sidelined him for one start. And he later sprained his left ankle on a hit and missed four games.

"I thought that we took pretty darn good care of him," Trestman said. "I think he would agree. We’re going to try to do better this time around, but we’re trying to get rid of those things. I can't speak for the past; I can only speak for the past as recent as last year. It was really a unique, awkward injury that he had. Hopefully we can get him through safe and get him to play a 16-game season. I know that’s predominant on his mind. If we can keep him safe and healthy, we feel like we can be in every game."


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.”


Ex-Bears GM calls Jay Cutler inconsistent, unpoised


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/12/2014) Former Bears general manager Jerry Angelo critiqued each of the 32 starting quarterbacks for a story on The SidelineView.com and had some constructive notes on Jay Cutler. Angelo traded for Cutler when he ran the Bears. 

"Has all the physical tools, but inconsistent in the clutch," Angelo wrote about Cutler. "Mostly due to a lack of poise. He's not comfortable reading defenses and consequently locks onto a favorite or pre-determined target, that may or may not be the right choice. The less he's asked to see the better he is. A better half field general, than a full field one."

Cutler had one of his best years as a Bear in 2013, completing 63.1 pct. of his passes for 2,621 yards and 19 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in 11 games, missing five games due to leg injuries. 


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 signs seven-year deal with Bears


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/2/2014) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler signed a seven-year deal with the club.

The deal was announced by general manager Phil Emery at a press conference Thursday. Cutler was one of the team's major free-agents heading into the offseason, but expressed a desire to remain in Chicago. In his first year under head coach Marc Trestman, Cutler threw 19 touchdowns to 12 interceptions in 11 games. The financial details of the contract are not known at this time.


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.
