Jay Cutler, Chicago BearsJay Cutler came into this season as a lukewarm idea of a stud quarterback.Based on the fact the Bears' season went down the toilet last year following Cutler’s season-ending thumb injury and the addition of Brandon Marshall to the Bears' wide receiver tandem, many felt that Cutler could be a solid top 5 fantasy quarterback this year.Then there were some who felt the complete opposite and were not sold on Cutler based on past performance.  It is easy to say that we can meet in the middle here as Cutler has done a good job of controlling the offense but hasn’t fared so well as far as producing top notch fantasy stats. This week that will change. The Bears roll into Nashville on Sunday to take on the hot and cold Tennessee Titans. The Titans are ranked 29th in pass defense giving up an average of 282 passing yards to opposing quarterbacks. The Bears have struggled a bit offensively the past few games and are desperate for a breakout game; this will be t...

Brian Urlacher: If the fans can say whatever they want, why can’t we?

Jay Cutler has been taking some heat over the past few days after it appeared that he swore at Chicago Bears fans on his way to the locker room before halftime of a win over the Carolina Panthers. The Bears offense had played poorly and the fans were booing, so it made sense to think that. Of course, Cutler denied blasting the fans and said he was simply angry with the way he and...

Week 9 Fantasy Football Hot 'n' Not - Start'em Sit'em

HOTQB            Cam Newton – Entering the season, Cam wouldn’t have been part of the Start’em because I don’t put early draft picks or elite players on this list; but this year has been the exception for Cam thus far.  However, this week is ripe for him to return to 2011 glory.  He’s going up against RGIII and you know he wants to do better than him.  Ultimately...

Chicago Bears: Week 9 NFL Power Rankings (#3)

Last week: 1 (-2) Record: 6-1 I’m moving the Bears out of the #1 spot barely this week because I wasn’t impressed with their near home loss to the Panthers and because the Falcons looked good against the Eagles. However, the Falcons still haven’t really played anyone that’s any good and they almost lost at home to the Raiders. The Bears’ one loss was on Thursday Night and...
