Jay Cutler’s Pro-Bowl QB Play For Chicago Bears Increases Optimism for Sunday

Even after the Chicago Bears barely pulled out a win in their regular season opener game against the Cincinnati Bengals, there is reason for optimism for the monsters of the midway.

Following a sketchy preseason, Bears fans were left wondering how this season was going to play out. After a lot of changes and some switching around in positions, a winning season suddenly became questionable. Starting quarter back Jay Cutler could have been a major concern for the Bears’ success. After throwing some horrible picks and playing with an offensive line that wasn’t able to protect him, things seemed gloomy.

However, he was a beautiful spectacle against the Bengals. With a QBR 85.7, Cutler was playing like he actually wanted to see the postseason.

Being in the last year of his contract and with no talks of extension until after the season, Cutler has something major to prove in order to be paid. Cutler has some major weapons in his offense. He has the opportunity to use these weapons to make some major plays that will get Chicago the win every time. Fans got a little taste of what a Pro-Bowl Cutler can bring.

If he can keep this momentum in Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings and beyond, then the Bears have nothing to worry about. This is what Chicago has been missing. Cutler has provided an opening for Chicago to be a major offensive contender in the NFL.

It is up to him as a quarterback and as a leader on the team to keep the rally going in order to take on the major defenses that the Bears are going to be facing in the future.

Brandon Marshall Tells Rich Eisen He Hasn't Spoken To Jay Cutler

During a recent appearance on ' The Rich Eisen Show', former Chicago Bears and current New York Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall was asked about his relationship with his old quarterback, Jay Cutler. Marshall, who has zero chill, replied that he had not spoken to Cutler in "two years." Naturally, Eisen was shocked and mentioned that they were teammates just a season ago. Marshall essentially confirmed that they were not talking off the field during his last year in Chicago, but ultimately wished Cutler well.
