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.

Say thanks for Jay Cutler's benching, Bears fans

And on the second night of Hanukkah, Marc Trestman gave everyone a present: a “scorched Bears’’ policy.

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...

Benching Jay Cutler hardly solves Bears dilemma with 'uncoachable' QB

If nothing else, Erik Kramer should stay atop the Bears' record book for single-season passing yards and touchdowns.

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...

The situation brings to mind one that transpired in 2008 in Jacksonville, Florida, when former head coach Jack Del Rio made the decision to bench and eventually cut former No. 7 overall pick Byron Leftwich in favor of David Garrard.

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.

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...
