Found September 18, 2012 on Football Nation:
Chicago Bears – 10, Green Bay Packers – 23This game didn’t really go as planned for anyone here, including Aaron Rodgers (213 total yards, 1 TD, 1 INT).  Rodgers ended up with barely over 200 total yards and one touchdown against one interception, for a very pedestrian total.  That makes two weeks where Rodgers numbers have been very low considering where he was taken in fantasy drafts, which undoubtedly is costing several teams.As bad as Rodgers’ owners must have felt, it’s nothing compared to anyone who decided to play Jay Cutler (138 total yards, 1 TD, 4 INTs) thinking this would be a marquee matchup.  Cutler imploded, throwing four INTs and looking rather lost and rattled from all the hits Clay Matthews laid on him during the game.  This is why it’s always dangerous to rely on Cutler, as he does have to propensity to lay a stinker every now and then.With no Greg Jennings who was out due to injury, Jordy Nelson (6-84) had to do most of the heavy lifting for the Packers receivers....

Bears player takes swipe at Jay Cutler's behavior

Jay Cutler took a beating against the Packers on Thursday night. He was sacked a whopping seven times and hurried on almost all of his throws, which lead to a four-interception performance in the loss. The Bears offensive line clearly has issues that need to be worked out. Tackle J’Marcus Webb played particularly poorly, and Cutler showed him up on the field by getting in his face...

Finleys agent questions Rodgers, creates stir

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Packers tight end Jermichael Finley wants no part of his agent's recent comments regarding NFL MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler did his weekly radio show with ESPN 1000 in Chicago today and says e doesn’t regret the way he treated J’Marcus Webb during last week’s loss to the Packers. “I probably shouldn’t have bumped him, I’ll go with that.

Bears DB criticizes Cutler over shove

Seven sacks. Four interceptions. Shoving one of his offensive linemen. Jay Cutler's last game was one the Chicago quarterback probably would rather forget. With the Bears preparing for Sunday's home game against the St. Louis Rams, most of his teammates tried to put Cutler's shove of left tackle J'Marcus Webb and his critical postgame comments in the past. Most...

Offense Must Adjust To Officials

Replacement officials are allowing defensive backs a lot more contact The Packers’ high-powered offense has been very ordinary through two games. Blame the competition. The 49ers are one of the best defensive teams in the entire league and the Bears’ disciplined Cover-2 scheme has often given Green Bay fits. Blame the quarterback. Aaron Rodgers has been a little off all summer...

Chicago Bears All-22 Coaches Tape Review: Offensive Game Plan

The Chicago Bears could not get their offense going against the Green Bay Packers defense on Thursday, failing to generate any consistency throughout the game. Jay Cutler was sacked seven times, threw four interceptions and the Bears didn't get the type of production out of their running game they anticipated.  The Packers defense gave up 187 yards during their week one loss...

Jay Cutler’s now ripped by his own teammate

Chicago Bears cornerback D.J. Moore has come out and ripped his Jay Cutler for the way he handled things with offensive lineman J’Marcus Webb. “Is it unfair to criticize Jay right now? Shoot, it’s unfair for him to be like that toward J’Marcus,” Moore said Monday. “In every game in every sport, there’s always somebody who has a tough day. For you to come off on the...

Bears' corner fires shots at Cutler as they bench offensive guard.

When the word trickled in that the Bears had benched an offensive lineman I was positive that it was J’Marcus Webb. The thought process had really nothing to do with quarterback Jay Cutler cursing him out. Webb’s game was so bad last week against the Packers and in past situations that it seemed that former line coach and current offensive coordinator Mike Tice had had seen...
