I'm glad to be joined for this week's Q&A by Brett Solesky of Bloguin's fine Bears site, Midway Illustrated. Check them out for more Bears coverage, and for my answers to Brett's questions.
Total Titans: The last time the Titans faced the Bears in the regular season was back in 2008, the year before the Bears traded for Jay Cutler. In his fourth season with the Bears, what's the verdict on the trade? How good is Cutler, and is he good enough for what the Bears need him to be?
Midway Illustrated: The question you're asking here, I'm the wrong guy to ask this question. I am Cutler's biggest critic and when the Bears said they were trading for a Pro Bowl quarterback I was expecting Cutler to have made another Pro Bowl by now. Instead Cutler's tenure with the Bears has been mediocre at best and his production this year is worse than it has been at any point in his Bears tenure. He's still capable of big games and playi...
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.
The Chicago Bears are coming off of a near disaster at Soldier Field this past Sunday where they barely escaped with a 23-22 win over the now 1-6 Carolina Panthers. There was not much the Chicago Bears did well in that game until the fourth quarter. Cutler was sacked six times in the first half, but the line eventually settled in enough to allow Cutler to lead two impressive...
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...

QB Jay Cutler (Chicago Bears): An uneasy feeling is often accompanied whenever you’re trotting out quarterback Jay Cutler. He is more than capable of crushing your week with a bevy of interceptions. However, it’s easy to like his chances...
The schedule gets tougher for the Bears after this weekend, so Jay Cutler and Chicago's offense will need to show improvement on the road in Tennessee if they are to build some momentum.
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...
In this week's Chicago Bears podcast we talked more about the Bears offense, should Mike Tice go more no-huddle with Jay Cutler? How excited was Nate Collins to get off the bench and get some quality playing time? What about Julius Peppers? We talked about this and got much more including a full preview of the Tennessee Titans from Tom Gower of TotalTitans.com.

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...
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...
