Chicago Bears’ Matt Cavanaugh Determined to Improve Jay Cutler; Win Super Bowl
Chicago Bears new quarterback coach Matt Cavanaugh knows what it is like to win a Super Bowl. In fact, he knows how it feels to win three, two as a player and one as a coach. Cavanaugh understands that is why teams play the game. It is why players work so hard in the dog days of summer. Cavanaugh also understands that if the Bears want to win their first Super Bowl since the 1985 NFL season, quarterback Jay Cutler will have to take them there.
“If you’re in the business, you’re in it to win it all,” Cavanaugh said, according to ChicagoBears.com. “That’s really got to be your driving force. I’m old enough now that I’ve learned the game’s not about me. It’s not about how fast I can advance, how I can do more, how I can get paid more, any of that stuff.
“It’s about the moment. It’s about the players you’ve got. It’s about helping them realize their fullest potential and hoping that that’s good enough to win a Super Bowl.”
There is no question Cutler has the potential. The problem is he just has a hard time realizing it. The Bears are hoping that Cavanaugh will be able to restore some confidence in their quarterback to help him realize that he has the ability to be a great signal caller.
Cutler’s numbers have dropped off drastically since he led Chicago to a NFC North division title and a berth in the NFC Championship Game in 2010. His completion percentage, passing yards, touchdowns and passer rating over the past two seasons have yet to match up to his statistical accomplishments. Obviously, there are some concerns in the Windy City that he may not have what it takes to get the team back over the hump.
However, the Bears believe that the right coaching, personnel and keeping Cutler off his back could give the quarterback everything he needs to succeed. The organization also believes that Cavanaugh has the knowledge and ability to improve Cutler, something that could make him a fan favorite for decades.
