Aaron Rodgers sticks up for Jay Cutler

Every now and then, rivals back one another, and that’s precisely what took place Tuesday when Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers ripped Chicago Bears offensive coordinator Aaron Kromer for criticizing Jay Cutler as an anonymous source in an NFL Network report. Rodgers told the NFL Network he was “baffled” by the situation, and criticized Kromer’s behavior while expressing empathy for what Cutler endured in the week leading up to Chicago’s loss to the New Orleans Saints on Monday Night Football.

What really happened with Jay Cutler's presser

Jay Cutler deservedly received harsh criticism for his three-interception outing in Monday night’s 31-15 loss to the New Orleans Saints, but in the wake of that debacle, the quarterback and Chicago’s public relations staff caught heat for the ensuing press conference.  Cutler answered just three questions during his press conference before leaving the interview area, and it was believed reporters in the locker room weren’t alerted to the start of the session in time to attend it.

Detroit Lions to face Bears' Jimmy Clausen after Cutler benched

It’s Plan B for the Lions who won’t have to figure out how to stop quarterback Jay Cutler on Sunday. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Chicago Bears (5-9) will bench Cutler  in favor of Jimmy Clausen when the division rivals meet at Soldier Field. The Lions (10-4) can clinch a playoff spot with a win. So far this season, Cutler has 28 touchdown passes and 18 interceptions. Two of those picks came in the Thanksgiving loss to the Lions at Ford Field. Clausen has completed three of nine attempts in garbage time in three games this season where the Bears didn’t have a...

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler benched; Jimmy Clausen to start against Detroit Lions

The Chicago Bears have announced the benching of embattled quarterback Jay Cutler, and will start backup Jimmy Clausen on Sunday against the Detroit Lions. The death throes of the Chicago Bears' 2014 season are ongoing.  In the wake of Dan Bernstein's report that head coach Marc Trestman is to be fired at the end of the season and general manager Phil Emery's future is under evaluation,  Monday Night Football commentator Jon Gruden was extremely critical of Jay Cutler's play against the New Orleans Saints and Marc Trestman, when asked about it earlier today, said Gruden has "a right to...

Chicago Bears are actually benching Jay Cutler for Jimmy Clausen

Rough times in Chi-town. The Bears are a bad football team. They're 5-9 this season and they've lost three straight games. Head coach Marc Trestman could be fired after just being hired in 2013 and general manager Phil Emery might not be safe either. But the Bears have hit a new low. According to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, the team is benching veteran starter Jay Cutler in favor of... Jimmy Clausen. While Cutler has certainly struggled -- he threw three interceptions against New Orleans on Monday night -- this move seems pretty surprising. The Bears just gave Cutler a huge extension...

Would You Want Jay Cutler As The Jets Starting QB?

The Chicago Bears are sitting at 5-9 and plan to start former Notre Dame star and NFL flop Jimmy Clausen at Quarterback against the Lions this week. The rumour mill has been in overdrive, suggesting the Bears are ready to move on from Cutler permanently. Jay Cutler is the highest paid offensive player in the NFL this season, taking home a whopping $22.5 million in the first year of a 7 year deal he signed with the Bears last off-season. He's also leading the NFL in interceptions with 18 and has turned the football over 24 times this season. Cutlers contract is a large number but looking at...

Saints vs. Bears Monday Night Football Final Score: Drew Brees and Dominant Defensive Performance Knock off Bears 31-15

In a dominant defensive performance, The Saints controlled the Bears from start to finish to win 31-15 and improve to 6-8 on the season.

Great start for the defense. Mark Ingram runs for 10 yards on the first offensive play....

Mid-day talker: Thinking back on 2009 Vikings-Cutler trade rumors

Months before the Vikings lured Brett Favre to Minnesota … and weeks before Jay Cutler was ultimately traded from the Broncos to the Bears … there was a steady stream of reports and rumors that the Vikings — coming off a 10-6 playoff season but still with questions at quarterback — were interested in making a deal for the QB. Did you forget about this? Never forget it. Because with each passing Cutler game, we still wonder about it. How different would 2009 have been? How different would the five seasons and many QBs after that have been? Would it have been worth it, possibly, in some...

Bears bench QB Jay Cutler; Jimmy Clausen to start Sunday

Big news out of the Windy City earlier this afternoon: The Chicago Bears have benched their $126.7 million quarterback, Jay Cutler, for Sunday's game versus the Lions. Jimmy Clausen will get the start instead. Clausen, a 2010 second-round pick of the Panthers', hasn't started a game since his rookie year and has a 3:9 touchdown-to-interception ratio. FANTASY ANALYSIS: Clausen hasn't proven himself to be any good, but I'm sure this move will make some disgruntled Bears fans very happy. They came to that game on Monday night to boo. They came to boo Cutler. They came to boo that defense. They...
