Bears first-quarter report card: B-

LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Before getting into thick of Chicago's next matchup at Carolina, let's first take a look at the team's first quarter report card after a 2-2 start: Quarterback Jay Cutler has completed 65.8 percent of his passes for 10 touchdowns and four interceptions. He’s shown more discipline and better command of the offense, but costly turnovers have been an issue. If Cutler maintains his current level of efficiency, he’ll set a career high in passer rating for the second-consecutive season.

4 Downs With Ditka

1st Down: Just when you think Jay Cutler has it all figured out, he reverts to his old ways. As a coach, what advice would you give him? First of all, the Bears played well, but they got behind. When that happens, you have to go into catch-up mode, and you begin to force the ball. That’s what happened with Jay. The Green Bay Packers’ defense is not the best in the world, but he tried to force a few balls in there. He was just trying to make a play. That’s what...

Jay Cutler thought he'd be a Redskin

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler on Monday confirmed a recent report he was nearly a member of the Washington Redskins in 2009, shortly before a trade with the Denver Broncos brought him to his current team. In a piece explaining some of the behind-the-scenes maneuvers that ultimately led to the Bears landing Cutler, the quarterback -- fueled by speculation about former head coach Josh McDaniels’ preference of Matt Cassell, and the belief former coach Mike Shanhan would be joining Washington -- reportedly wanted to join the Redskins.

Jay Cutler not telling fans to relax

Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers told fans to relax last week after his team’s 1-2 start, but Chicago’s Jay Cutler stutter-stepped that approach, opting for reality on the heels of the Bears falling to 2-2 Sunday, after a 38-17 loss to the Packers. “I’m not gonna tell them anything,” Cutler said Monday during the “Jay Cutler Show” on ESPN 100. “We’ve got to win games at home. Green Bay, a divisional opponent … we’ve just got to play better.

Marc Trestman: Can't pin Jay Cutler's 2nd INT on Brandon Marshall

LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Initially, Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman described Jay Cutler's second interception in Week 4’s 38-17 home loss to the Green Bay Packers as a miscommunication between Cutler and wide receiver Brandon Marshall, where Marshall “was supposed to run a hook route deep at 18 yards and he turned it into a go route.” On Monday, Trestman offered a slightly different explanation of the late third-quarter play where Packers cornerback Sam Shields picked off a Cutler deep ball intended for Marshall on the right side of the field.

Jay Cutler can share blame for loss to Packers

FIRST-AND-10: We’re past the point of blaming Jay Cutler for every Bears offensive flaw. Plus, nine more thoughts after Bears’ loss to the Packers:

Jay Cutler is no Aaron Rodgers

RICK MORRISSEY: If Aaron Rodgers is the measuring stick, Jay Cutler should feel about an inch tall right now. What happened Sunday at Soldier Field isn’t all on Cutler, but if he wants to be the elite quarterback the Bears insist he is, then he can’t do what he did against the Packers.

Cutler could keep up with Rodgers, but only for a half

RICK MORRISSEY: If Aaron Rodgers is the measuring stick, Jay Cutler should feel about an inch tall right now. What happened Sunday at Soldier Field isn’t all on Cutler, but if he wants to be the elite quarterback the Bears insist he is, then he can’t do what he did against the Packers. In a game devoid of defense, there was every opportunity for a quarterback to be great.

Don’t pin this one on Cutler

So, Aaron Rodgers is Aaron Rodgers, and Jay Cutler isn’t. Please tell me you’re not surprised.

Packers DBs swoop in on Cutler to turn momentum

When the Bears rolled up 303 first-half yards against a retreating Packers defense, you knew there was only one thing that could slow them down in the second half. It was the same thing that had cost them in their six consecutive losses to their interstate rival with Jay Cutler under center.

Jay Cutler's first interception set rout in motion

CHICAGO -- Jay Cutler launched the quick throw, and almost immediately his eyes widened as the ball was deflected by Tramon Williams and floated “kind of in slow motion,” right into the hands of Clay Matthews for an interception. When Cutler let that ball fly, the Chicago Bears remained very much in the hunt Sunday, trailing just 24-17 with 7:39 left in the third quarter. Six plays later, Aaron Rodgers helped Green Bay capitalize on the turnover by hitting Jordy Nelson for an 11-yard touchdown to make the score 31-17 after the extra-point.
