The "bad" Jay Cutler was on display Monday night against New Orleans.Fantasy Spin:Cutler had 194 yards passing on 31 attempts with a pair of touchdown passes and three interceptions. It's always a guessing game which Cutler will show up each week and that's a problem in a one-and-done fantasy playoff system.

Where did it all go wrong?

It wasn't so long ago that there was plenty of hope and optimism for the 2014 Chicago Bears. Then the season started and it all went to hell in a hand basket. Back in August most fans looked at the Bears roster, coaching staff and the schedule and predicted 10 or 11 wins in most cases. Everything seemed to be pointing up. Looking at the roster additions, the upswing in offensive output and the shiny new contract that Jay Cutler signed, it seemed like everything was lining up for a return to the postseason. But it all went bad rather quickly. And now we just can't wait for it all to be...

Most Bears informed of Jay Cutler benching through social media

LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Chicago Bears coach Marc Trestman detailed Thursday what sounded like a meticulous approach in making the decision to bench quarterback Jay Cutler, but most of the players found out about the move through social media instead of from the man in charge. “We’d like for everything to come from in-house first, but at the end of the day, it didn’t work out like that,” said left tackle Jermon Bushrod, who added the team held a meeting Thursday “to cover up what got out yesterday.

Saints Thursday Injury report: Akiem Hicks Does Not Practice

Akiem Hicks had a monster of a sack on Monday against the Bears, power rushing up the middle and dragging the line with him to make the sack on Jay Cutler. I don't remember when Hicks hurt the ankle and hopefully the Saints are just giving it a rest to be ready for the Falcons contest on Sunday. During Sean Payton's interview he had high praise for Matt Ryan's skills. Good arm, accurate, and quick with the release. Said that Ryan's line has jelled in the later part of the season as opposed to the first matchup between the Falcons and the Saints. As far as the "twitter wars" this week he...

Bears | Jay Cutler wants to stay in Chicago

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler ...

Should the Eagles have interest in Jay Cutler?

It's rare that a longtime franchise quarterback is on the trade market, but that may be the case this summer for the second time Jay Cutler's career. The Bears have seemingly moved on from franchise quarterback Jay Cutler. While they signed him to a large long-term deal this offseason, Chicago has already benched the veteran passer. Cutler is now likely to be put on the trade block during an offseason where there are likely to be 10-12 teams badly looking for an upgrade at quarterback. The Eagles, depending on how you feel about Nick Foles, may be in the market for a clear upgrade at the...

Why Lovie Smith won't go back to Jay Cutler with the Buccaneers

I can't see the Tampa Bay Buccaneers going with Jay Cutler any time soon, but another former Lovie Smith quarterback may be an option. The Chicago Bears have benched Jay Cutler in favor of Jimmy Clausen. Yes, Jimmy Clausen: the quarterback who somehow managed to throw three interceptions to nine interceptions in 2010 and pass for fewer than 120 yards per game in his only season as a starter. The quarterback with the most punchable face in the NFL, some of the worst statistics I've ever seen, and game film rivaled only by Blaine Gabbert's in its artistic display of complete...

On Jay Cutler and the Tennessee Titans

The national media are all suggesting that Cutler to the Titans makes sense. Does it? In case you missed the news last night, the Chicago Bears have benched Jay Cutler in favor of Jimmy Clausen.  It really doesn't get much lower than that.  It is assumed that Bears coach Marc Trestman is doing this in order to try and save his job.  You have to feel bad for a man who is pinning his hopes on Jimmy Clausen, but that is not the point of this post. Now all of the national media is pointing to Tennessee as the next stop for Cutler.  Peter King has been throwing it out there for the last...
