Last season, Cutler had to deal with a below-average offensive line and an offensive coordinator who called pass plays that had him running for his life, but still had a pretty impressive year. Cutler led the Bears to a 7-3 record through 10 games and had the team in prime position to make the playoffs. Unfortunately, a thumb injury ended Cutler’s season prematurely.
Now, Cutler is back. He is ready for 2012 and expectations are sky-high. This season, he can look forward to new weapons on the perimeter: Brandon Marshall, his old pal from Denver, and rookie wide receiver Alshon Jeffrey. Both give Cutler big targets to throw to. With Cutler returning, the Bears have a great chance at a playoff birth in 2012.

In this three part series, we will be breaking down the Chicago Bears schedule and predicting how the Monsters of the Midway will fare in 2012.
The Chicago Bears finished last season in the most average and disappoint way that a team could finish a season. After starting the season 7-3, Chicago lost Jay Cutler in what would end up being their fifth straight win and they lost...
After the first few days of practice, the Chicago Bears receiving corps has looked dominant. This is what the team's coaches and management was hoping for when they went out and brought in multiple weapons in the offseason.
Brandon Marshall dominated every defensive back that lined up against him during drills on Sunday. However, corner Kelvin Hayden had him on lockdown, but...
Newly appointed Chicago Bears offensive coordinator Mike Tice has been in constant contact with quarterback Jay Cutler throughout training camp thus far.
Tice, who was the team's offensive line coach for the past two seasons, has said he wants Cutler to indicate his 'likes' and 'dislikes' about the plays they run. He wants his quarterback to be comfortable...
Shea McClellin should send a thank you card to Brian Price because Price's workout on Tuesday was bad enough that it knocked the rookie off the front page of Bears camp reports.
Brian Price struggled mightily in his first full practice in pads with the Bears, raising early alarms about the young players skills. The naysayers should relax a little, it was one practice and Price...
If there's a sense that Shea McClellin is getting piled on by me writing this blog, then throw another log on the fire.
I don't want to sound overly dramatic because there is plenty of that going around as well.
There's no reason to panic because we're only four practices into camp and there's a long long ways to go.
The best way to evaluate this is to say...
Let’s just go ahead and fast forward to the good part of the New York Jets adding Tim Tebow to their roster this offseason. Whether we want to admit it or not, it’s a known fact that Tebow and the Jets are not in a ‘til death do us part kind of commitment so inevitably the [...]
Bears first rounder Shea McClellin has participated in exactly four padded practices to this point, so the fever pitch surrounding his recent struggles is wildly premature.
Bears offensive coordinator Mike Tice expresses his frustration with the offensive line, Matt Forte talks about the addition of fellow running back Michael Bush and much more.
Boundless speculation will come out of today's practice as J'Marcus Webb is practicing ahead of Chris Williams at LT. With Mike Tice saying earlier that Williams and Webb will split reps at LT and split days and Webb practicing with the first team for the second consecutive day, Tice is not sticking to his words.
Further adding to the speculation is Chris Williams is...
Just a couple of weeks ago I brought you a dreadful performance of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" by Bears QB Jay Cutler. Now it is University of Illinois football coach Tim Beckman's turn at the famous song.
It wasn't a great performance, but it added more enthusiasm to it than Cutler did. Hopefully, Beckman and the Illini play with this enthusiasm during the...
In one week, the Denver Broncos will kickoff the 2012 preseason when the team travels to Chicago to take on the Bears on August 9th. Kickoff is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. (MT).
The game, broadcast on KTVD-TV Ch. 20, will mark Jay Cutler‘s second preseason game against Denver and Peyton Manning‘s first game as a Bronco, though neither quarterback is expected to play more than a...
