News you need to know

From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 5): Cutler showed no ill effects from his hamstring injury and took advantage of a passive Raiders defense to lead the Bears to their first win on the season. The Chiefs are among the easiest teams in the league to pass on, making Cutler a very nice Week 5 start.

Recent Game Summaries

2015 Week 4 vs OAK (28 / 43 / 281 / 2 / 1 pass, 1 / 0 / 0 rush)

Either Jay Cutler is the fastest healer in the world or he couldn't bare to watch another week with Jimmy Clausen under center. Cutler's return to the field couldn't have come at a more-perfect time for this reeling Bears team. Returning to the field after a one-week absence, Cutler didn't appear at all bothered by the hamstring injury that kept him sidelined. The Bears' quarterback completed 28-of-43 passes for 281 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. For the majority of the game, Cutler was able to use his legs to dance around the pocket, avoiding the Raiders' pass rush just long enough to make a play and move the offense down the field. A 24-yard completion to Martellus Bennett and a 35-yard completion to Marquess Wilson are prime examples of how important Cutler's mobility can be for the Bears' offense. But it wasn't all good. It wouldn't be a Bears game without a Cutler turnover; the Bears' quarterback threw off balance while feeling pressure on a throw to Bennett. The good comes with the bad with Jay Cutler. If Cutler can continue to play within Adam Gase's offense, there's no reason to think this Bears team can't be extremely competitive as the season progresses.

2015 Week 2 vs ARI (8 / 9 / 120 / 1 / 1 pass, 3 / 24 / 0 rush)

Jay Cutler got off to a great start Sunday before suffering a hamstring injury that cost him the rest of the game. The injury occurred will Cutler attempted to make a tackle after throwing an interception that resulted in a pick-six. Cutler completed his first eight passes before the injury occurred. He appeared to have a solid command of Adam Gase's offense, only two games into the season. With Alshon Jeffery sidelined, Cutler made good use of little-known targets like Josh Bellamy, who caught his first NFL pass, a 48-yard TD, in the loss, Cameron Meredith and Zach Miller.

2015 Week 1 vs GB (18 / 36 / 225 / 1 / 1 pass, 4 / 31 / 0 rush)

Jay Cutler looked to be in better control of the Bears' offense Sunday than in previous seasons. While he didn't light up the scoreboard, he did lead the Bears to points on four of their first five possessions before a late interception halted the streak. All in all, Cutler was an average quarterback in the loss to the Packers. He completed 50 percent of his passes and threw one touchdown and one interception. It was on third down where Cutler found much of his success, completing 8 of 10 passes for 123 yards. Here's why things can get better for Cutler as the season progresses: 1. An area in which Cutler excelled is managing the offense. With fewer control of the play calls at the line of scrimmage this season, Cutler appeared to do a better job of reading the entire field when he dropped back to pass. In previous seasons, Cutler has been known to lock onto one target. This was not the case Sunday. 2. The offensive line looked received a facelift before Sunday's game, with the announcement that right guard Kyle Long would move over to right tackle. While Long is hands down the Bears' best offensive lineman, he's going to need more than one week of practice time to get the hang of the position. 3. Alshon Jeffery, Marquess Wilson and Eddie Royal all missed valuable practice time and game time during the preseason, throwing off whatever continuity the unit had developed during the offseason program. With a new offense run by new coaches, it's going to take some time to get everyone on the same page. Look, Cutler is not going to be a Top-10 fantasy quarterback this season, but he might be able to give you a spot start here or there.
