Found November 05, 2012 on Midway Illustrated:
Jay Cutler took to the podium after one of his best performances of the season, three touchdowns to Brandon Marshall.  Cutler talked about how the Titans defended Marshall and how the Bears were able to take advantage of the mismatches to put big points on the board on offense.  BEARS QB JAY CUTLER   (opening statement)   Yeah, the first quarter — I haven’t seen that very often defensively and special teams.  We got off to a little bit of a slow start, had some trouble in the red zone that we have to improve on and made some plays, we had some opportunities, so stuff to build on offensively.   (on why they were able to be successful throwing the ball today)   The defense sets us up.  Whenever we get up 21-2, or whatever it was, we’re going to start to see some single high because they have to get the ball back.  When we see the single high we’re going to try and go to work with Brandon Marshall.   (on if it was an emphasis to get off to a fast start today after last week’s performance)   Yeah, offensively we didn’t.  We stumbled a little bit offensively.  In the red zone, we stumbled a little bit down there, the turnover was my fault — I was trying to do too much.  Definitely some things to work on offensively, we’re headed in the right direction.  We just have to put together a four quarter game at some point.   (on their ability to run the football today)   We ran it well.  The offensive line did another good job creating run gaps and pass protecting.  We’re getting better and better and better, we’re just not where we need to be.   (on if he went to Vanderbilt or saw any old friends while he was back)   I didn’t — I went up to my house, saw some family, but it’s still a business trip.   (on if there was any emotions being back in Nashville)   Yeah, it was fun.  Just to be back in Nashville, I love this city; it’s always felt like home even during my freshman year.  To come back and just being able to see people at the stadium that I remember seeing around Vandy, it’s nice and to get a win like this in this state makes it even better.   (on if he’s happy he doesn’t have to play against the Chicago defense)   Yeah, the way that they’re stripping the ball, creating turnovers—picks, fumbles and it starts with the front four.  Pepp (Julius Peppers) and those guys force so much pressure.  As a quarterback you have an internal clock and the thing goes haywire whenever you’re getting pressured and when the pocket collapses.  The guys have been in the system for a long time and they’re playing it to perfection, it’s really a thing of beauty.   (on how he was able to get into a rhythm in today’s game)   It took a little bit of time.  I think we shortened up some of our routes, just tried to get the ball out quicker, get it in the receivers hands and get some rhythm that way.  Then when they came up we hit that bomb with B (Brandon Marshall), so it came throughout the game.   (on hitting Brandon Marshall for some big plays)   It was just one-on-one because they were loading the box, and our philosophy is if we get Brandon Marshall one-on-one we’re going to go at him until they stop it.    (on his three touchdown passes to Brandon Marshall)   The first one, it wasn’t designed that way. Brandon made a great adjustment at the top of the route, he was supposed to break in and he kind of floated out, and then I put it up high.  I didn’t know if I was going to overshoot him or not, but he jumped up and made a great catch.  The second one was a straight go.  It was press-man and it’s hard to go against a guy that size when he can get the back-shoulder balls and he has the ability to out run you too.  The third one was a crossing pattern and he found a great zone, sat down right there, so he’s hard to cover.   (on his conversation with quarterbacks coach Jeremy Bates after his fumble)   It was a good exchange.  You know, I just tried to do too much and I think he was just trying to emphasize that point — to play within the play, trying to get B (Brandon Marshall) the ball.  We had single coverage with him, but timing wise that play didn’t allow for the time I needed.  We just have to play within the play, and we just have to limit that stuff, especially down in the red zone.   (on the amount of Bears fans and support on the road this year)   They’ve travelled well.  Hats off to our fans, it’s been a fun year — Dallas, Jacksonville, here it’s been crazy to watch the Bears fans take over.  You know you have a ton of fans when you’re in an away stadium in the red zone and I’m trying to get the crowd to hush up and they’re responding.  They got quiet in a hurry, so it makes it fun.   (on RB Matt Forte showing he can be an every-down back)   Yeah, I mean they stopped him at the three-or four-yard line and he pushed his way in there.  He’s a versatile guy, caught a screen and went 50-60 with it, off tackle he’s breaking them.  The guy can do anything, I am glad he’s on our team.
