Summary

While Cutler put up some fairly strong numbers in 2014, the numbers don't tell the full story. Cutler set career-highs in completion percentage (66%) and touchdowns (28), while throwing for the second-most yards of his career (3,812). The full story involves Cutler playing in an offense that preferred "dink-and-dunk" over moving the ball vertically down the field. Yet somehow he led the league in total turnovers, ahead of 2014 first-round pick Blake Bortles of the Jacksonville Jaguars. This is going to be the year when Cutler figures it out, when he figures out how to efficiently manage an offense. Helping him do so will be new head coach John Fox and new offensive coordinator Adam Gase. Cutler is going to be asked to do things much differently this season. Gone are the days when he throws the ball 48 times to only five Matt Forte runs. Gone are the days when he freelances at the line of scrimmage. Expect a more level season from Cutler. Behind an improved offensive line and a speedy wide receiver to help spread the field, Cutler should be able to throw for between 3,700-9,000 yards with 25-30 touchdowns and say, 12 interceptions? Though, who really knows when it comes to Cutler, the immensely talented quarterback who everyone loves to hate but secretly love. Don't go out of your way to draft Cutler. If he falls into your lap, just shrug your shoulders and say "DOOONNN'T CAAAARRE," just like Jay would. (May 22)

Bears | Jay Cutler solid in preseason game (Sat Aug 22, 09:38 PM) - Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler completed eight of his nine pass attempts to five different receivers for 69 yards in a preseason game against the Indianapolis Colts Saturday, Aug. 22.

Our View: Cutler is muddling through with his mix-and-match receivers, but we don't like him as more than a QB2. This offense still makes us nervous, as does the mercurial Cutler.

Bears | Former GM has harsh words for Jay Cutler (Thu Aug 20, 10:02 PM) - Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler lacks poise, according to former general manager Jerry Angelo. 'He's not comfortable reading defenses and consequently locks on to a favorite or predetermined target that may or may not be the right choice,' Angelo said. 'The less he's asked to see the better he is.'

Our View: Also, water is wet, the sky is up and pain hurts. The league has long known that Cutler seems to fall apart in tough situations, and given that Brandon Marshall is gone, while rookie Kevin White is hurt (and potentially heading to injured reserve), he seems short on toys, which could mean short on patience. We'd rank him as a mid-range QB2 this season with some lingering concerns about the offense.
