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 this week against the Tennessee Titans, a team that has surrendered 17 touchdowns through the air and 282.0 passing yards per game.
RB Daniel Thomas (Miami Dolphins): With three TDs in the past five contests, Daniel Thomas, 25, should have some success against Indy’s D, which ranks 27th against the run (137.4 yards per game). The Colts are also one of only 10 teams to have allowed eight or more touchdowns on the ground. Look for Thomas to receive double-digit carries for the third consecutive week.
WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (Oakland Raiders): Moore may be the top target, but DHB should have a solid performance a...

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.
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...
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...

Total Titans: The last time the Titans faced the Bears in the regular season was back in 2008, the year before the Bears traded for Jay Cutler. In his fourth season...
In this week's Chicago Bears podcast we talked more about the Bears offense, should Mike Tice go more no-huddle with Jay Cutler?

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...
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. "...
The last time the Chicago Bears came back from a deficit of 12 or more points in the fourth quarter to win was on Nov. 25, 2007.
Strangely enough it was against the Jay Cutler led Denver Broncos.
The Bears trailed 34-20 with 10:38 left in the final quarter on that winter day at Soldier Field.
WR/KR Devin Hester provided the Bears with their only two touchdowns up to that point...
