The Football Fan Spot:
Last week: 1 (-2)
I’m moving the Bears out of the #1 spot barely this week because I wasn’t impressed with their near home loss to the Panthers and because the Falcons looked good against the Eagles. However, the Falcons still haven’t really played anyone that’s any good and they almost lost at home to the Raiders. The Bears’ one loss was on Thursday Night and it’s tough to put a lot of stock into a fluky bad performance on short rest. Excluding that loss, Jay Cutler has won 11 straight games.
QB Jay Cutler: 19 of 28 for 186 yards, 1 touchdown, and 1 interception, 4 dropped passes, 102.2 adjusted QB rating, pressured on 13 of 35 drop backs (6 sacks, 1 scramble, 4 of 6)
DT Henry Melton: 1 sack and 4 quarterback hurries on 35 pass rush snaps, 6 solo tackles, 5 stops
DT Nate Collins: 2 quarterback hurries on 19 pass rush snaps, 3 solo tackles, 1 assist, 2 stops
CB Charles Tillman: Allowed 1 catch for 8 yards on 3 attempts, 1 pass deflection, 3 solo tackles, 1 assist, ...
BEST OF MAXIM
The Bears are sitting at 6-1 and Jay Cutler is playing well. There are still questions about the Bears. Can they protect Cutler? Can Cutler keep his head and play consistent all season? Can the defense continue to get turnovers and score?
If the Bears keep things going in this direction, they may play for the NFC Championship.
Here's a look at Week 9.
Yesterday, we kicked off Jay Cutler Appreciation Week with a look at Jay’s most notorious douchebag moments. It was nothing short of glorious. But today is a different day, so we must move on.
Despite all the flak Cutler gets for supposedly being arrogant and having a bad attitude, I know he’s a good guy because he’s a dog owner.
A bad person doesn’t take the task of picking...
(Eds: Updates. With AP Photos.) Quarterback Jay Cutler and the Chicago Bears offense struggled enough against Carolina to elicit boos from Soldier Field fans, and receive a poor review of their inconsistency a day later from coach Lovie Smith.
Cutler got sacked six times in the first half and has been sacked 11 times in two games, while the running game bogged down in the second...
Jay Cutler, Chicago BearsJay Cutler came into this season as a lukewarm idea of a stud quarterback.Based on the fact the Bears' season went down the toilet last year following Cutler’s season-ending thumb injury and the addition of Brandon Marshall to the Bears' wide receiver tandem, many felt that Cutler could be a solid top 5 fantasy quarterback this year.Then there were...

QB Jay Cutler (Chicago Bears): An uneasy feeling is often accompanied whenever you’re trotting out quarterback Jay Cutler. He is more than capable of crushing your week with a bevy of interceptions. However, it’s easy to like his chances...
Jay Cutler has been taking some heat over the past few days after it appeared that he swore at Chicago Bears fans on his way to the locker room before halftime of a win over the Carolina Panthers. The Bears offense had played poorly and the fans were booing, so it made sense to think that. Of course, Cutler denied blasting the fans and said he was simply angry with the way he and...
I'm glad to be joined for this week's Q&A by Brett Solesky of Bloguin's fine Bears site, Midway Illustrated. Check them out for more Bears coverage, and for my answers to Brett's questions.

In this week's Chicago Bears podcast we talked more about the Bears offense, should Mike Tice go more no-huddle with Jay Cutler? How excited was Nate Collins to get off the bench and get some quality playing time? What about Julius Peppers? We talked about this and got much more including a full preview of the Tennessee Titans from Tom Gower of TotalTitans.com.
For more than three quarters Sunday afternoon, the NFC North leading Chicago Bears looked as though they were in big trouble against the visiting Carolina Panthers. Trailing Cam Newton’s one-win crew 13-7 at half time the Bears were even loudly booed by the Soldier Field faithful heading into the locker room."I'd boo us too," Bears quarterback Jay Cutler said.
