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.


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 | 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.

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 | CBSSports.com
(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. 


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. 


Report: Bears could put Jay Cutler on trading block in offseason


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) The Bears could trade quarterback Jay Cutler after the 2014 season and save $12.5 million against the salary cap, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Schefter reports other teams will have interest in Cutler, who has faced a lot of scrutiny as the Bears are 3-6 through nine games.

Cutler is completing a career-high 66.4 percent of his passes in 2014. He is averaging 262.8 passing yards per game, while totaling 18 passing touchdowns and 10 interceptions in nine games.


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, 


Jay Cutler throws two picks in blowout loss vs. Packers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler had a night to forget Sunday, completing 22 of his 37 pass attempts for 272 yards with one touchdown, two interceptions and one lost fumble in his team's 55-14 blowout loss against the Packers in Week 10.

Cutler could get nothing going in the first half as the Packers continued to rack up touchdowns and put the game out of reach by halftime. He could have had a few more turnovers as he put the ball in the hands of Packers' defenders throughout the night, though they only managed two interceptions in all. One came on a deflection of the helmet of a Bears lineman, and the pick was returned 82 yards for the Packers' seventh touchdown of the night.

Cutler has been uneven this season, and the Bears have now dropped five of their last six games, giving up more than 50 points in each of their last two games. The Bears signal caller will look to rebound against the Vikings in Week 11.


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 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.


Bears QB Jay Cutler has no issues with Marshall's locker-room rant


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/23/2014) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler said he was not upset with wide receiver Brandon Marshall's postgame rant in the locker room following Sunday's loss against the Dolphins.

"He’s an emotional guy," Cutler said, per The Chicago Tribune. "Whenever he gets frustrated, he’s going to get emotional most of the time, and he’s going to speak from the heart, and he’s going to make sure everyone else around him hears him. It wasn’t anything that caught us off guard or was off-putting. It was frustration coming out and him just letting us know that it’s important to him."

Cutler added he doesn't believe Marshall crossed a line and said Marshall's actions were not directed at him.

"He didn’t come near me," Cutler said. "He didn’t say my name. I don’t think he attacked anybody personally (with) what he was saying."


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."
