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. The Packers cornerbacks would jam the Bears receivers at the line of scrimmage.
Now Cutler has Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery, which has him feeling very confident.
"Good luck," Cutler said in a press conference Tuesday. "We've got some dudes that, if you're gonna get up in their face, even our speed guys are gonna get around them, and our big guys are gonna throw and go," Cutler said. "So we invite press coverage. We invite man (coverage). If we get that type of game, our guys outside have to make some plays for us."
"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.
