Found October 28, 2012 on Midway Illustrated:
Jay Cutler, QB On if ribs were affected at all today “Ah no. Didn’t really feel them. No one played well. I didn’t play well. It starts with me. Offensively, those first three and a half quarters were just ugly. Getting good field position, defense was fighting their butts off (offense) just couldn’t get it going.” On if they took the run away from them or if it was just not there “I don’t think they really took anything away from us. I think we just didn’t execute, honestly. Things were there, I was missing throws, dropped balls, didn’t protect very well. So you go down the line. There was mistake after mistake. It’s just something we have to clean up. We’re a better team than that. Second half of the fourth quarter, so eight minutes of the game, we played well. Other than that, didn’t play very well.” On if having slow starts has made him worry “No. I mean were not worried. I don’t think you can hit the panic button offensively. We just need to keep getting better. We have to keep looking at our mistakes, keep improving and keep trying to work on things week-in and week-out. It’s never easy in this league. Getting a win is a win. It’s hard work. This team, we play as we’re down to the tooth-and-nail against most of the teams in this league. To get out with a ‘W,’ we’re happy, but, any time you win, there’s always things to improve on, just like a loss, so we have to keep getting better.” On what the difference was on the last drive “We had a lot of time. They were playing one coverage and we just kept hitting them and hitting them and hitting them. That’s pretty much it.” On how much it energizes the offense when the defense makes a big play like Jennings’ “It happens a lot around here. I think we are getting a little bit used to it. We knew something was going to happen and those guys were going to make some play for us and they did. It always comes at big time in games, it seems like. They make the big plays and they’re ability to create turnovers is fun to watch.” On if he feels he could have avoided some of the sacks “I mean I always feel like I can avoid them. Didn’t move as well as I thought I wanted to. I need to take a look at the film and see where the holes were. I kept asking JB [Jeremy Bates] and J-Cam [Jason Campbell] if I was staying in there too long or what the deal is. We just have to take a look at offensive film and talk to the offensive line to see their take on it and fix it on Tuesday.” On crowd energizing them in fourth quarter before Jennings got the touchdown but going in for half and how booing them made him feel and his reaction “You know, B (Brandon Marshall) asked me, he said, they’re booing us out there. I mean I’d boo us too. I told those guys it was a boo-worthy performance if you will. It was pathetic offensively what we put out there. It wasn’t up to standard, product-wise. We have to get better, we know that, our fans know that. Luckily enough we got out of there with a win but the first half is nothing to be proud of.” On having six sacks in first half and none in second and the difference “We ran the ball. I got rid of the ball. I think we started getting some timing patterns and just trying to get rid of the ball. We weren’t even going to mess with the o-line. (I) wanted to get rid of it before they even got back to me. (We) made some adjustments, I think Mike Tice did a good job of handling that game even though he was calling good stuff early on we just weren’t executing them.” On if it makes it easier to make corrections because they’re winning games “Everything is easier when you win games. Period. If we would have lost that game it would have been a much different attitude in this press room and in that locker room. As long as you’re winning games,  you’re heading in the right direction you can find ways to fix things and stay positive and keep moving on. So that’s what we have to do. We have to keep moving and offensively keep getting better and better and trying to help that defense a little bit more than what we are doing.”
