After looking at all the game tape, Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler said he was "proud" of his performance vs. the Green Bay Packers Thursday night.

Cutler completed 11-of-27 passes for 126 yards and tossed four interceptions. His passer rating was 28.2, and he was sacked seven times.

"I'm actually proud of that game," he said Tuesday on “The Jay Cutler Show” on ESPN 1000. "I told (Bears quarterbacks coach) Jeremy Bates that. I thought I fought, I thought I competed hard. (I) made a few errant throws, but whenever we got what we were looking for I put the ball on the money for the most part."

Didn't know that putting the ball on the money would lead to four picks, but we won't get into that. He also said there was only one throw he wishes he had back. That throw was the dropped touchdown by Brandon Marshall.

He said he put that ball a half count quicker than he wanted, which was why Marshall couldn't corral it. He went onto say that Marshall would tell you that's a ball he should've caught, but Cutler felt he could've made it much easier on Marshall. That missed touchdown changed the outcome of the game.

As we all know, moments before that play Cutler was seen barking on the sideline at left tackle J'Marcus Webb following one of the seven sacks on the night. He insists, however, that he never lost his composure and had emotions entangled in the game.

"I had my composure the whole game," Cutler said. “We got beat, we got beat by a good football team. Offensively, it starts with me, so I got to play better, and it trickles down. It started early on in that game and it never got better."

What may be making it easier for Cutler to say all this is that the fans were still behind him when he was out on the town running errands on Saturday.

"After a game like that you don't really blame them for booing you or saying negative things because you asked for it. But I was out doing some stuff, some errands, it was middle of the day, and I bet there was five, six, seven people who came up and they were like 'Hey, keep your head up. We're rooting for you guys. It's a long season.' That meant a lot to me," he said.

He's just happy that the fans realize that it's a long season, and one game won't determine the Bears' fate.

He is looking to improve, however, as he ranks second to last in the NFC with a 51.6 completion percentage and a 58.5 passer rating. He currently has only outperformed John Skelton of the Arizona Cardinals in both categories. Skelton no longer holds that starting job.
