Jay Cutler: 'I've got to do something better'

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler provided some insight Monday behind the two interceptions he tossed Sunday in the club’s 23-20 loss to the Buffalo Bills in the season opener. The Bears turned over the ball on three occasions, leading to 13 points for the Bills. Two of the turnovers came courtesy of Cutler, with Buffalo scoring 10 points off those miscues. “The guys know, we’re not idiots,” Cutler said Monday during “The Jay Cutler Show” on ESPN 1000.

Bears' issues start with Jay Cutler

CHICAGO -- An examination of what the Chicago Bears must do after their 23-20 overtime loss to the Buffalo Bills: Coach Marc Trestman defended Jay Cutler in the aftermath of the quarterback’s two interceptions Sunday that led to points. But if the Bears expect to succeed against San Francisco on the road Sunday night, the coach needs to administer some tough love to his $126 million quarterback behind closed doors, in addition to preparing potential replacements along the offensive line and at receiver as contingency plans for injuries, while cracking the whip on the club’s porous run...

Cutler’s mystifying interception brings back bad memories

The play that beat Jay Cutler this time was a rollout — the type of play, it should be pointed out, we implored former Bears offensive coordinator Ron Turner to run in 2009 to maximize Cutler’s talents and give the mistake-prone quarterback enough options that would discourage him from doing something he shouldn’t. “It’s a boot,” coach Marc Trestman explained. “And he’s working across the field, and he’s got an opportunity to throw to two or three...

Bears 3-and-Out: Week 1 vs. Bills

1. A flea-flicker! It’s worth noting that quarterback Jay Cutler was rolling until the Bears opted for some trickery — a flea-flicker on the fourth play of their second possession. Cutler had completed five consecutive passes before that and it was immediately followed by an incompletion and a sack. It was an odd call when everything seemed rhythmic. 2. Marty matters Tight end Martellus Bennett wants the blame for Cutler’s first interception. A disconnect was...

Mistakes, injuries, Bills stymie Bears O

CHICAGO -- Chicago reeled off more than 400 yards of offense Sunday, and converted 42 percent on third downs, yet came up short in the end of a 23-20 overtime letdown against the Buffalo Bills. The Bears entered with an offense expected to be one of the league’s best due to its performance in 2013, yet finished the day stymied in front of the home crowd at Soldier Field by not only the Bills, but also themselves. “We rolled a lot of yards,” quarterback Jay Cutler said.

Bears vs. Bills final score: Buffalo outlasts Chicago, 23-20, in OT

It wasn't always pretty, but the Buffalo Bills are 1-0 after doing what needed to be done to pick up a huge road win over the Chicago Bears. The Buffalo Bills are 1-0 after a surprising, 23-20 overtime victory on the road against the Chicago Bears. Buffalo scored 13 of its points off of Bears turnovers, which helped make up for a game in which they struggled to otherwise slow down Chicago's high-powered offense. Jay Cutler threw for 349 yards and two scores, and the Bears added another 86 yards on the ground, but two interceptions and a Brandon Marshall fumble - most of which occurred in...

To the surprise of, well, everyone, EJ Manuel and the Buffalo Bills have a 17-7 lead on the Bears at halftime. Can they hold their lead and pick up a big road win?

Over his doubts, Jay Cutler ready to play for keeps

ADAM L. JAHNS: If every NFL quarterback truly has his own journey, as coach Marc Trestman maintains, then there was a time when Jay Cutler believed the Chicago portion of his journey would end, that he would have to move on.

Jay Cutler has money to earn

If every NFL quarterback truly has his own journey, as coach Marc Trestman maintains, then there was a time when Jay Cutler believed the Chicago portion of his journey would end, that he would have to move on. There were just too many offensive changes, missing pieces, jarring sacks and frustrating moments. “I didn’t know if it was going to be here,” Cutler told the Sun-Times in an interview Thursday at Halas Hall. “I didn’t know how long I was going to be...

Mayday or Jay day: Can Cutler shoulder the load?

I never thought I’d feel sorry for Jay Cutler. He has gobs of money. Great wide receivers. An offensive savant for a coach. And who can pull off the customized-conversion-van look the way he can? Nobody, that’s who. What more could a guy need? A defense and special teams, to name two things that could haunt him till the day he dies, not that anyone around here is panicking. Oh, no. Not at all. OK, it’s early yet. If it were any earlier, we’d be rubbing the...

2014 NFL Season predictions: Chicago Bears

2014 NFL Season predictions: Chicago Bears

NFL fans love it when pundits back their team... not so much when they don't. It seems like year after year, the Chicago Bears are one of the toughest teams to predict. "Will this be the year that the team gets it together and makes a serious run?"  "Will this be the year Jay Cutler rises above and leads his team to the Promised Land?" For 2014, we have to wonder... Will the defense get its gear together and not totally poop the bed? Bill Barnwell, who is one of the best in the business, takes a look at some teams that he thinks might see a turn for the worse-- and Chicago is on that...

2014 Chicago Bears Initial 53-Man Roster

2014 Chicago Bears Initial 53-Man Roster

The Bears have made all the necessary cuts to get to their initial 53-man roster. The final round of cuts is over, and the Bears have arrived at their initial 53-man roster. We'll rush to point out that if Marquess WIlson gets put on IR with the designation to return, the earliest that can go into effect is on Tuesday, and another player will be added then. And the entire thing is in flux anyway, as the Bears can make a waiver pickup like they've done in the past with David Bass. But with those disclaimers aside, here's the 53-man roster. QB Jay Cutler, Jimmy Clausen, David...
