Chicago: The Bears managed to squeak by the Carolina Panthers last week on the strength of a last minute Robbie Gould field goal.While they got the win, it wasn’t pretty and the offense really did not put on a good show against one of the worst defenses in the league. Now the Bears go on the road to face the Titans, another defense that should give about as much resistance as wet toilet paper; but every game is an adventure with Jay Cutler at the helm.The Titans rank 29th in the league in pass defense, so this should be a game that Cutler can do well in. Unfortunately the Bears rank a dismal 30th in pass offense, with only the “we don’t want to pass” Seahawks and the “we can’t pass even if we wanted to” Jaguars behind them. But with the way the Bears' defense is crushing opposing offenses, Cutler really hasn’t had to do much, and he likely won’t have to here. So what I’m saying is don’t look for great numbers if you’re using Cutler as a bye week filler.The Titans are almost as b
BEST OF MAXIM
The Bears are sitting at 6-1 and Jay Cutler is playing well. There are still questions about the Bears. Can they protect Cutler? Can Cutler keep his head and play consistent all season? Can the defense continue to get turnovers and score?
If the Bears keep things going in this direction, they may play for the NFC Championship.
Here's a look at Week 9.
Jay Cutler has struggled throughout much of the 2012 season, but has been at his best in the fourth quarter. Cutler has the best QB rating in the fourth quarter of any QB in the NFL with a 132.0 rating. Granted Cutler has been the beneficiary of his team holding a lead in the fourth quarter due to the play of the defense, but he found his rhythm against Carolina in the final...
Jay Cutler and the Chicago Bears were up 7-0 against the Tennessee Titans backed up in their own end zone. Cutler dropped back into the end zone where he threw an amazing pass that happened to be tipped by a Titan defensive back. The defensive back tipped it right to Matt Forte, the Chicago Bear running back, who than made the first town. Everything seemed to be all right for the...
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...

Last week: 1 (-2)
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...
