It’s no secret that the Chicago Bears have had glaring needs on offense from(before acquiring Brandon Marshall) wide receiver to offensive line. But would’ve thought that the star quarterback would be the one to publicly criticize the situation.
“You know, the offensive line is definitely going to be a concern and seeing where those guys are going to fit in and seeing what five we go with,” Cutler told the Chicago Sun-Times.
“If Gabe [Carimi] comes back, if J’Marcus [Webb] pans out. Where are we going to put Chris Williams? There are some question marks there. Until we really get that resolved and get our front five settled in, we’ve got some work to do on offense.”
That includes you finally reaching the expectations that Bears fans have for you, Jay. But that could definitely happen with the additions of Brandon Marshall and rookie Alshon Jeffrey. But even with those two, will Jay have enough time to throw to them?
The Bears have ranked an average of 3rd in sacks allowed in the last two seasons and it’s no secret that Cutler’s inconsistencies don’t make it any better. So in order for the Bears to reach the highest plateau in 2012, the offensive line AND Jay Cutler will need to step it up.
