Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is very confident for Thursday night's game against the Green Bay Packers, despite only beating the Packers just once in six tries as a member of the Bears.
In previous games the Packers found success against the Bears offense by playing physical against the Bears smaller wide receivers.
Now Cutler has Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery, which has him feeling very confident.
"Good luck," Cutler said in a press conference Tuesday. "We invite press coverage. We invite man."
"It's all about matchups," Marshall said. "I'm 6-5, 230 pounds and there's not too many DBs walking around that big.
"If they want to get physical, I do welcome that."
On the defensive side of the ball, linebacker Brian Urlacher should be ready to go and will start for the Bears.
Game: Bears at Packers

Chicago Bears @ Green Bay Packers
The Bears and Packers have a storied rivalry and it is heating back up with two playoff-caliber teams facing off tonight. Jay Cutler sort of dissed the Packers defense by saying this:
"We've got some dudes that, if you're going to get up in their face, even our speed guys are going to get around them, and our big...
Jat Cutler added fuel to the fire for Thursday Nights rivalry game against the Packers
If you asked me how well Jay Cutler would do against the Green Bay Packers secondary on Thursday, I would have told you anything less than a 400 yard 3 TD performance would be a disappointment. Now I’m not so sure after Cutlers’ comments to CSNChicago this morning.

Jay Cutler wasn't happy, and he made sure everybody around him knew about it.

Facts and numbers for the second week of the 2012 National Football League season. We also examine playoff and Super Bowl ramifications for teams opening 0-2 and/or 2-0.

Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler finally has legitimate weapons at wide receiver, and the Bears are using a brand new offense, which could give them the advantage over Green Bay on the short week.
The job share at running back between Matt Forte and Michael Bush seemed to work very effectively in the opener, a 41-21 lashing of the Indianapolis Colts. To everyone but Forte himself, apparently. Forte sounded less than thrilled about losing two short-range scoring chances to Bush, who had converted 13 of 19 rushes from two yards or less last season. "It's been...
The Green Bay Packers rattled and robbed Jay Cutler and backup tight end Tom Crabtree scored on a fake field goal in the second quarter of a 23-10 victory over the Chicago Bears at Lambeau Field on Thursday night.
The Packers (1-1) intercepted four Cutler passes, including a pair by Tramon Williams. Facing a fierce pass rush all night, Cutler was sacked seven times, including 3...

Unless you’re a big fan of watching Jay Cutler being mangled, humbled and made to atone for ruining the momentarily raised hopes of a fan base, there wasn’t much else for you to savor about Thursday night’s game between the Bears and Packers. Except there is no one who doesn’t like watching that. So clearly last night was a resounding success. Cheers, everybody!
The Chicago Bears passed their season-opening "exam" with flying colors on Sunday over the Indianapolis Colts. Playing against a team with just two wins from the season before may not be the greatest measuring stick for any team. Add to the mix, the Colts were starting a rookie quarterback with a first-year coach and anything but an impressive win would have been considered...
Week one of the NFL season delivered as promised. Exciting comebacks, several games down to the wire, a few referee blunders, and some unnecessary personal foul calls to protect quarterbacks. As we gear up for round two, here’s a look at five of the most intriguing games on the schedule, Chris Berman-isms not included.
Brandon Marshall came down from the ledge and had a huge week...
