Why Bears Fans Can Trust John Fox With Jay Cutler

After six seasons of play that has hovered between mediocre and bad, interspersed with only the occasional really good, Bears fans have just about had their fill of Jay Cutler as their quarterback.  The same goes for the assurances from the team brass that they can get the most out of his immense talent.

It doesn’t matter how much money a team has committed to a specific player. If he’s unable to perform at even a mediocre level, said player will find himself riding the pine.
