Chicago Bears: Can Cutler keep up with the Pace?

Ryan Pace has done his job well. He surrounded his talented-but-wildly-inconsistent quarterback with all of the support he could acquire. This sounds like a broken record, but now is officially the time for Jay Cutler to step up. Jay Cutler has made a name for himself in Chicago as being a quarterback who is almost top-tier; his debatable decision-making skills keep him in the middle...

Chicago Bears: Defensive line will be better

The Chicago Bears defense wasn’t good last season. Coach John Fox was transitioning a group from a 4-3 base defense to a 3-4 and didn’t have ideal personnel at many positions. They ended the season ranked 19th in total defense, 22nd in sacks, 29th in passing defense and 10th in rush defense. The rushing stat is a bit misleading since the Bear’s had one of the league’s worst...

What can Kevin White add to the Chicago Bears?

The Chicago Bears selected wide receiver Kevin White in last year’s draft with the seventh overall pick. White missed the entire season because of a stress fracture in his shin that required surgery. Being selected so early in the first round, there will be a lot of expectations on White to instantly produce on the field. Realistically, what should these expectations be? In his...

What is Alshon Jeffery worth?

John Fox: Jay Cutler ‘had an outstanding year’ in 2015

The Chicago Bears finished with an abysmal 6-10 record, landing them to the bottom of the NFC North last season.

Chicago Bears: Rolling the dice at TE

The Chicago Bears have had arguably a top five tight end for the last three seasons in Martellus Bennett, who provided the team with a dependable target, big play ability and a respectable skill set as a blocker. Bennett outstayed his welcome with Ryan Pace after holding out of training camp in 2015 for a new deal with multiple years left on his contract and displaying an attitude...

Is 33-year-old Jay Cutler about to peak?

Few professional athletes have a “defining year” at the age of 33, but that’s how The MMQB’s Emily Kaplan summed up Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler’s 2016 season. And it makes sense, because the 10-year veteran is coming off the highest-rated season of his NFL career. The former turnover machine had just 11 interceptions and a pick rate of 2.3 percent, which was by...

John Fox ‘expecting good things’ from Jay Cutler

To say that Jay Cutler has had a rather disappointing couple of years would be an understatement. However, Chicago Bears head coach John Fox doesn’t seem to think it is all bad at this point for his quarterback. Fox took over the Bears ahead of the 2015 season and many expected him to help them out drastically, especially after going 48-14 in four years with the Denver Broncos...
