  Bears | Jay Cutler to face open competition    Thu Mar 26, 06:20 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler will head into the offseason as the team's No. 1 quarterback on the depth chart, but head coach John Fox said there will be an 'open competition' at the quarterback spot between Cutler and QB Jimmy Clausen during training camp and offseason workouts. The current coaching staff and general manager Ryan Pace have nothing vested in Cutler, and they've made it clear that money isn't the sole driver of their decisions.

Footballguys view: This is it for Cutler. If Fox and OC Adam Gase can't get him to play better, then the Bears are likely to move on next year. We're not expecting Cutler to turn it around, but it will be interesting to see how he responds to new coaching.

  Bears | Jay Cutler lacking confidence?    Wed Mar 25, 05:01 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler seemed to lack confidence last season, according to head coach John Fox. 'I think maybe he got to the point where he lacked confidence a year ago. To build that back up, it's going to take time, daily. It takes trust, like any relationship.'

Footballguys view: Cutler lacks confidence, focus, leadership...and he'll fall back on bad habits at the drop of a hat. The Bears are giving him one more year to clean his act up, but it wouldn't be a surprise to see the two sides part ways after 2015 if things don't change.

  Bears | Jay Cutler to remain starter in Chicago    Wed Mar 11, 03:21 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler will remain the starting quarterback in 2015, according to general manager Ryan Pace.

Footballguys view: Cutler has a hand-picked QB coach in Dowell Loggains, and the team is reportedly taking away some of the freedom for Cutler to change plays at the line and otherwise taking things off of his plate. Under John Fox this should be much more balanced offense than it was under Marc Trestman.

  Bears | Chicago tailoring playbook to Jay Cutler     Tue Mar 10, 02:43 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler, who is fully expected to be a part of the team's plans in 2015, will have the playbook tailored to his strengths by head coach John Fox and offensive coordinator Adam Gase. Cutler will earn $15.5 million this year on a contract that is fully guaranteed, but the new coaching regime may not hesitate to go in another direction if Cutler struggles early in the year. It's likely that the coaching staff sat down with Cutler and discussed his expectations for this season and how to reduce turnovers and bad decisions in a new scheme.

  Bears | Jay Cutler staying in Chicago    Tue Mar 10, 08:51 AM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler is fully expected to be the starting quarterback in 2015, according to sources with knowledge of the team's thinking. One source was adamant that there was 'absolutely zero truth' to recent reports that Cutler was being actively shopped for a potential trade.

Footballguys view: Cutler may be staying in Chicago, but 2015 is certainly a "make or break" year for him. If he doesn't stay in line, stay healthy and win then the Bears could be looking to move on next season.

  Titans | Jay Cutler headed to Nashville?    Sat Mar 7, 12:47 AM

If the Chicago Bears decide to try and trade QB Jay Cutler, one NFL source said Friday, March 8, that the Tennessee Titans are the only realistic destination in terms of a trade. If Cutler is on the roster Thursday, March 12, a $10 million guarantee for 2016 kicks in.

Footballguys view: We could see that. The Titans can't move into 2015 with Zach Mettenberger as their starter, can they? Cutler could go back to Tennessee where he played college football at Vanderbilt, and try to make the Titans better. On March 12th a portion of his 2016 salary will become guaranteed with the Bears. We have a feeling a deal gets done before then.

  Jets | Jay Cutler not an option for Jets    Fri Mar 6, 05:22 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler is not receiving any trade interest from the New York Jets.

Footballguys view: The Bears would take some phone calls for Cutler. The interest might not be there with his $16.5 million cap hit (with $19.5 million in dead money remaining on his contract) in 2015. Perhaps a team like the Rams would show interest in Cutler as time is running out on Sam Bradford and Jeff Fisher.

  Bears | Decision on Jay Cutler looming    Thu Mar 5, 07:39 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler's contract is a concern, with the $10 million he's due for 2016 becoming fully guaranteed in one week.

Footballguys view: We wouldn't be surprised to see the Bears move on from Cutler if they got the right trade offer. With his $16.5 million cap hit in 2015 (with $19.5 left in dead money on his contract), the Bears would find suitors for Cutler few and far between. This is likely a make-or-break season for Cutler in Chicago. If he stays, we're predicting "break."

  Bears | John Fox non-committal on Jay Cutler    Wed Feb 18, 02:43 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler did not receive a vote of confidence from head coach John Fox. Fox said the team is still evaluating the position. Fox said he wants to get to know Cutler as part of that evaluation. 'We're not up against a deadline,' Fox said. 'My experience has always been that you need to gather the information and in turn, you usually make better decisions. We're in that process, and we'll keep you posted.'

Footballguys view: Not exactly a ringing endorsement, and why should Fox endorse his quarterback? Cutler has done little to prove that he's a star player in this league. Mostly, Cutler has not taken to coaching, gotten hurt, and become a player with the reputation of being a coach killer.

  Bears | Jay Feely says Jay Cutler is not a leader    Thu Jan 29, 09:45 AM

Chicago Bears PK Jay Feely said QB Jay Cutler isn't a leader off of the field. 'That's not who he is. You're going to have a vacuum there,' Feely said on Mad Dog Sports Radio. 'So you have to know that as a general manager or a head coach, 'Hey, we're not going to have that leadership from this position, so we've really got to have other guys that are going to step up and are going to be our verbal leaders.''

Footballguys view: Feely is not saying anything people haven't thought for most of Cutler's pro career. The Bears seem to be "all in" with Cutler this year. Part of that (most?) is his $19.5 million in dead money for 2015. If Cutler doesn't get it done this year, the Bears could easily cut him before 2016 as there's only $3 million left in dead money on his deal at that time. It's a make-or-break year for Cutler.

  Bears | Jay Cutler happy with coaching addition    Sun Jan 25, 09:06 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler reportedly once touted new quarterbacks coach Dowell Loggains to be the quarterbacks coach in 2012. The two had a 'strong, personal relationship.'

Footballguys view: The addition of Loggains suggests the Bears are giving Cutler all that he needs to succeed in 2015. It might be a last hurrah for the talented but underachieving quarterback. If Cutler struggles this season under new head coach John Fox, we could see the Bears going in a different direction at QB for 2016. Currently, there's over $19 million in dead money on Cutler's contract. However, after this year that number falls to just $3 million. It's shaping up to be a make-or-break year for Cutler.

  Bears | Jay Cutler's fate uncertain    Mon Dec 29, 05:12 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler's fate will be determined by the team's next general manager and head coach, according to team president Ted Phillips.

Footballguys view: The Bears don't want to hire another coach for Cutler to destroy. He's known as a coach-killer for a reason, and if he couldn't work with Marc Trestman he might not be able to work with anyone.

  Bears | Jay Cutler likely will start    Mon Dec 22, 02:43 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler is expected to be the starting quarterback in Week 17 with QB David Fales being the No. 2 quarterback.

  Bears | Jay Cutler expected to remain with team    Sun Dec 21, 12:56 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler is expected to remain with the team, because his contract and recent performance may make it tough the team to move him. Cutler's 2015 salary of $16 million is fully guaranteed and $10 million of his $16 million salary in 2016 will become guaranteed on March 13. It is not believed Cutler would alter his contract in order to facilitate a trade, according to sources.

  Titans | Jay Cutler could land in Nashville    Sun Dec 21, 10:10 AM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler is receiving trade interest from the Tennessee Titans. If the Titans landed him, it would alter the 2015 NFL Draft board dramatically.

  Bears | Jay Cutler wants to stay in Chicago    Thu Dec 18, 07:34 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler hopes to stay with the team beyond the 2014 season. Cutler signed a seven-year, $126.7 million extension a few months ago and was benched Wednesday, Dec. 17, in favor of QB Jimmy Clausen.

  Bears | Jay Cutler to start next week?    Thu Dec 18, 04:02 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler was benched just for this week against the Detroit Lions, according to head coach Marc Trestman. Cutler will be active and serve as the backup in Week 16. 'We're not playing well enough at the quarterback position on a consistent basis,' Trestman said.

Footballguys view: Benched "for just this week" sounds a lot like "we'd like to move on now please" as there is no purpose we can see for benching Cutler unless the Bears want off the roller coaster. Jimmy Clausen gets the start but he shouldn't be in your lineups as he is barely a QB3.

  Bears | Jay Cutler benched this week    Wed Dec 17, 06:34 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler will be benched in favor of QB Jimmy Clausen in Week 16 against the Detroit Lions, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Should anyone be surprised? Cutler has phenomenal natural talent, but even Jeff George thinks he needs to play better. Cutler is a lot like George--big arm, big attitude, gets coaches fired, and never plays up to his potential. This move could be a last-ditch desperation move by Marc Trestman so he can keep his job as the head coach. We had high hopes for Trestman when he took over in Chicago, but he's been held back by Cutler's play. Oh yeah, it didn't help the Bears extended Cutler's contract in January of 2014 either. What a mess.

  Bears | Jay Cutler's time ticking?    Sat Dec 13, 05:49 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler's time as the starting quarterback could be ticking, in the opinion of NationalFootballPost.com's Jason Butt. The Bears promoted QB David Fales to the 53-man roster Saturday, Dec. 13.

Footballguys view: Bears fans may have this at the top of their wish list right now. However, Cutler just signed a $126 million contract in January of 2014. Coming up in 2015, there's still $19.5 million in dead money left on his deal. There's no way they'll just dump Cutler, but there's a small chance they could trade him away....provided there's a team who wants to take on that deal. It's a mess right now, but we think Cutler stays in Chicago. We're not so sure head coach Marc Trestman gets another shot next year.

  Bears | Brandon Marshall talks Jay Cutler    Tue Dec 9, 03:59 PM

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall recently said he would have buyer's remorse regarding the team paying QB Jay Cutler a seven-year, $126 deal. However, Marshall did add that the blame for the Bears' offensive struggles doesn't solely lie on Cutler's shoulders. 'It doesn't always fall on him. I guess that's why those guys are the highest paid players out there. Because when you win and everything is going good, they get all the glory. And when it's bad, they take more [blame] than what they should take.'

Footballguys view: Marshall is going to stand up for his guy. These two have had a close relationship dating back to when they started their pro careers with the Denver Broncos.

  Bears | Brandon Marshall supports Jay Cutler    Mon Dec 8, 11:11 PM

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall said he supports QB Jay Cutler, but he also said that he doesn't understand why the team's offense has been so out of sync this season.

Footballguys view: Well of course he does. Marshall and Cutler's relationship go back to when they first came into the league the same year as draft picks by the Denver Broncos. They're good friends and longtime teammates, and that relationship is not going to be fractured because the Bears offense is struggling.

  Bears | Jay Cutler backed by head coach     Fri Dec 5, 08:55 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler will remain the team's starting quarterback the rest of the season as long as he is healthy, according to head coach Marc Trestman.

Footballguys view: Trestman may go down because of his quarterback. We love Trestman's mind for offensive football, but Cutler just isn't getting the job done. The Bears are a disaster right now, and they may look for multiple changes this offseason. Cutler has $19.5 million in dead money remaining on his contract next year, so he's unlikely to be released. Trestman may not get another season with the Bears. We're hopeful he does, but Trestman is certainly on the hot seat right now.

  Bears | Mixed results for Jay Cutler    Sun Nov 16, 04:50 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler completed 72 percent of his throws for a 98.0 passer rating and three touchdowns in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings. However, he also threw two interceptions.

Footballguys view: Cutler was better, but a lot of his success was based on his receiver playing much better and finishing his aspirational throws with great plays. The Tampa defense ate up Robert Griffin III this week, but Cutler should still be in strong consideration to be in your lineup against them next week.

  Bears | Jay Cutler will not be benched    Mon Nov 10, 03:32 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler will not be benched at this point but does need to play better, according to head coach Marc Trestman.

Footballguys view: Cutler may not be benched, but that doesn't mean he's going to play any better. The Bears are at a low point in the Trestman era. We love his mind for the game of football, but Trestman could be the fall guy if the Bears don't turn things around.

  Bears | Jay Cutler turning ball over frequently    Mon Oct 20, 12:10 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler threw an interception and fumbled twice in the team's Week 7 loss to the Miami Dolphins. Cutler has turned the ball over multiple times in all four of the team's losses this year, but he hasn't turned the ball over once in any of the team's three wins.

Footballguys view: The opposition has had a field day when playing against the Bears. Opponents have scored 37 total points off Cutler's turnovers in 2014. The Dolphins sacked Cutler three times, and he somehow managed only 190 yards and a passing touchdown in Week 7.

  Bears | Brandon Marshall unhappy with QB    Sun Oct 19, 06:09 PM

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall called out QB Jay Cutler in a heated locker room discussion after the team's Week 7 loss against the Miami Dolphins, a source said Sunday, Oct. 19. The source said there 'are some very selfish individuals in the locker room.' But it's not out of the ordinary for Marshall to strongly voice his opinion to Cutler, as the two are close friends off the field. Marshall also reportedly yelled at PK Robbie Gould.

Footballguys view: This is probably something would stand out less if Marshall and Cutler didn't have pre-existing narratives that are continued with this story. It shouldn't affect your view of them heading into a "get well" game against the weak Patriots defense.

  Bears | Jay Cutler's arm strength standing out    Wed Jul 30, 06:57 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler's arm strength is standing out in practice. "The ball is ON you," said defensive coordinator Mel Tucker.

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here. Cutler has always had a rocket arm. His mechanics have suffered in previous years because Cutler's arm is so strong he can fit passes in that other quarterbacks can't. He seems to be all-in with Marc Trestman, so that should only help his mechanics and accuracy look better.

  Bears | Jay Cutler takes extra reps Sunday    Sun Jul 27, 03:45 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler practiced with the first-team offense and the second-team wide receivers Sunday, July 27, in order to get extra reps.

Footballguys view: The Bears are all in with Cutler. In his second year of the Marc Trestman offense, Cutler should be able to thrive with weapons like Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery. His current ADP is QB13 (9.04) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Bears | Jay Cutler praised by head coach    Fri Jul 18, 02:59 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler has impressed head coach Marc Trestman with how intelligent and selfless he's been to better the team. Trestman also said he's been impressed with Cutler's skillset and football smarts.

Footballguys view: Trestman and the Bears certainly believe in Cutler. They wouldn't have committed to a seven-year $126.7 million contract earlier this year. He's more comfortable in the second year of the Trestman offense, and that should lead to better production on the field.

  Bears | Jay Cutler more experienced in Marc Trestman's offense    Fri Jul 11, 03:38 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler believes he's more familiar with second-year head coach Marc Trestman's offense. Cutler said he should be able to think less and play faster now that he's become more acquainted with concepts and formations.

Footballguys view: We believe in Trestman's offense, and the Bears certainly are committed to Cutler. We'll see if Cutler can stay healthy and flourish in 2014. His current ADP is QB13 (9.08) in 12-team PPR leagues. It's not out of the question to think that Cutler could finish the year as a top-10 fantasy quarterback.

  Bears | Jay Cutler cleans up fundamentals     Sun Jun 29, 10:33 AM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler has made tremendous strides cleaning up his fundamentals this offseason, according to quarterbacks coach Matt Cavanaugh. 'I've seen incredible progress,' Cavanaugh said. 'When we got in here last year & evaluated him we had a real good conversation with him about certain things that every quarterback should do. We said, 'Jay it might not be natural, but we want you to try it.' And he did"

Footballguys view: We've seen the Bears and head coach Marc Trestman stand up for Cutler with a new contract. It's good to see Cutler reciprocating their support with something he's needed to do since he came into the league. Cutler has a rocket arm, but his fundamentals have always been lacking. We'll see if that changes this year as Cutler could flourish in Trestman's system with quality weapons like Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery, Martellus Bennet and Matt Forte.

  Bears | Jay Cutler bigger and stronger    Tue Jun 10, 01:57 PM

Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman said QB Jay Cutler has made his durability a priority this offseason, and the quarterback has become bigger and stronger as a result. '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,' Trestman said.

Footballguys view: In year two of the Trestman system, Cutler should be able to perform better. He looked good before his injury last year, and we'll see if he can at least pick up where he left off. Cutler's added size should help his durability. His current ADP is QB14 (10.02) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Bears | Former GM says Jay Cutler isn't clutch    Tue Feb 11, 07:10 PM

Former Chicago Bears general manager Jerry Angelo, the GM that pulled off the trade to acquire QB Jay Cutler in 2009, said Cutler has all the tools except for the fact that he isn't clutch. 'Has all the physical tools, but inconsistent in the clutch,' Angelo wrote. '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.'

Footballguys view: So Angelo is just stating what some NFL fans believe. Cutler has to prove himself constantly, and the Bears are hoping he can stay healthy to play up to his potential in 2014.

  Bears | More on Jay Cutler deal    Thu Jan 2, 01:12 PM

Updating a previous report, Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler's new deal with the team is expected to eclipse the $17.6 million Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford signed last off season. The deal also includes $50 million in guaranteed money.

Footballguys view: It's a reasonable deal for Cutler, despite the high price tag. The Bears' offense is a "win now" proposition and while some fans think McCown could do what Cutler can, it's important to note that McCown looked good against some awful defenses. Cutler is worth the price.

  Bears | Jay Cutler re-signs    Thu Jan 2, 10:36 AM

The Chicago Bears re-signed QB Jay Cutler to a seven-year deal. Terms have not been disclosed.

Footballguys view: We thought the Bears might try to keep Jay Cutler at home and knew he might get a little more money and/or years due to the lack of viable starting quarterbacks entering free agency but WOWSERS. Seven years, even not fully guaranteed, is a long term commitment (even if we know it's not really seven years). On the other hand, with the offense locked down around Cutler, the Bears can now focus on defense, which was the real issue this season.

  Bears | Jay Cutler confident he'll stay    Tue Dec 31, 11:58 AM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler is confident that he'll reach an agreement with the team on a multi-year contract before the start of the 2014 NFL league year March 11. 'I'm confident in our ability (to get a deal done), and (in Bears general manager) Phil (Emery) and (team Chairman) George (McCaskey) and everyone over there that we'll find equal ground and get it worked out,' Cutler said. 'I don't know when it's going to happen, and eventually, it might not happen. But we're going to take a crack at it for sure.'

Footballguys view: This seems to be the best outcome for Cutler and the Bears alike. Josh McCown isn't sure if he is still going to play football, and quarterbacks are too hard to come by to let a good one go because he might be overpriced. Every quarterback is overpriced once they hit the market.

There's an element of gamble here as Josh McCown was feasting on porous defenses and the Cleveland Browns, while inconsistent, are probably the best passing defense the Bears have seen in some time. Cutler should produce in the range of QB2, but there is always the possibility that he has once again returned too quickly and could leave the game early, so be cautious.
