The Bears Den: July 30, 2014 - Chicago Bears training camp news and notes

The Bears return to action in Bourbonnais today; as usual, WCG will have you covered. Lance Briggs back to providing vocal leadership - Brad Biggs: Last summer, Briggs wasn't exactly sullen but he wasn't in a happy place. Now, he sounds at peace and his ebullience is a welcome sign for teammates, coaches and fans alike. Cutler not resting on 2013 success - Michael C. Wright: Jay Cutler hasn’t been perfect, nor has anyone else on the offense thus far at camp. But everyone recognizes the deficiencies, and the QB seems to be taking the lead in cleaning up things. Team Report - Greg Gabriel...

Growth of Bears passing game still a process

Jay Cutler is going to take chances. With his confidence in his arm strength and the catch radius of targets like Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery and Martellus Bennett, Cutler has the green light to let it fly most of the time. But in his development in the second year in head coach Marc Trestman’s system, the hope is that Cutler will learn to better understand the difference between taking a risk and a calculated gamble.

Growth of Bears passing game still a process

Jay Cutler is going to take chances. With his confidence in his arm strength and the catch radius of targets like Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery and Martellus Bennett, Cutler has the green light to let it fly most of the time. But in his development in the second year in head coach Marc Trestman’s system, the hope is that Cutler will learn to better understand the difference between taking a risk and a calculated gamble.

Jay Cutler not resting on 2013 success

He’s taken part in just four practices at training camp, but in that short sliver of time, Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler shows evidence he’s poised to take a major step in Year 2 of Marc Trestman’s offense. “It’s obvious in practice that Jay is taking more and more control by the day,” offensive coordinator Aaron Kromer said. “Not that he didn’t before; he did. But with his comfort level with all the things we’re trying to get done, he’s able to solve some of his own problems on the field, even when he didn’t maybe have that answer taught to him yet.

Jay Cutler: The art and soul of offense

BOURBONNAIS — Quarterback Jay Cutler has been called a lot of things in his first eight years in the NFL, but this is a new one: artist. If his first training camp under coach Marc Trestman was paint-by-numbers — learn the new coaching staff’s plays, formations and strategy — this year’s tour at Olivet Nazarene University has been rooted in the details. “It’s a next-level thing,” tight end Martellus Bennett said. “Last year was everybody just...

Jay Cutler building rapport with back ups

Entering his second year in the Trestman offense, quarterback Jay Cutler is taking all the reps he can. With all 11 starters on that side of the ball returning Cutler has the luxury of taking some reps with the second stringers, getting them experience and having the team ready in case of an emergency. Injuries are a reality of the NFL; at any point any player could suffer a knock that forces them to miss time. That's why its good to have depth on your roster. Even with depth, though, if the back ups don't have a lot of experience with other starters then there can be break downs in...

Bears Camp Report: Day 4

BOURBONNAIS, Ill. -- A daily review of the hot topics coming out of Chicago Bears training camp: Expectations are sky high for a Bears offense that ranked No. 2 in the NFL last year in points scored (27.8 per game) and No. 5 in passing yards (267.6 per game), but the opening four days of practice have produced a mixed bag of results from a unit that is expected to return all 11 starters. Monday’s performance was no different. At certain points of the session, quarterback Jay Cutler ran the offensive scheme to perfection, firing completions to wide receivers Brandon Marshall and Marquess...

The Bears should sign Kyle Orton

Kyle Orton was once the Bears' starting quarterback. While he had many shortcomings, he had the team on the verge of the playoffs and ended up being the major chip that allowed the Bears to trade for Jay Cutler. He was released by the Cowboys and, while he may be contemplating retirement, the Bears should try to bring him back. Long ago, in the dark ages of the Bears' struggles to find a quarterback, they were led by a man named Orton. Orton had a neckbeard that was mighty and he played valiantly. With his questionable arm strength, statuesque speed and tenacious leadership he actually had...

Jay Cutler helped Jimmy Clausen learn the playbook

BOURBONNAIS — If there’s one place where Jay Cutler makes friends easily, it’s the quarterback room. Newcomer Jimmy Clausen discovered that immediately after signing with the Bears last month. Cutler helped Clausen begin a crash course in coach Marc Trestman’s offense that could pay big dividends in training camp. “He helped me out a lot — especially that first day, going through the formations and just the basic things they do in this offense,”...

Jimmy Clausen: Jay Cutler 'helped me a lot'

BOURBONNAIS, Ill. -- The body-language cops and critics knock Jay Cutler enough that new signees aren’t sure what to expect from the quarterback upon joining the Chicago Bears. That’s partly why backup quarterback Jimmy Clausen expressed surprise Thursday about Cutler’s willingness to take on the role of mentor. After signing with the Bears on June 5, Clausen spent his first weekend as a Chicago Bear with Cutler learning the offense.
