Jay Cutler Superstar

What They're Saying About Jay

David Haugh, Chicago Tribune: "Wherever Cutler put the football against the Bills, where he placed responsibility for his interception might have been the most telling thing about his first game as a Bear.

The rest of it -- 5 of 10 for 64 yards and that interception in 14 plays -- should be of little concern. If Cutler plays this poorly next month, the civic reaction should be "uh-oh." But now a collective "oh, well," works just fine."

Brad Biggs, Chicago Sun-Times: "No, Jay Cutler isn't going to resemble Kyle Orton this season, even if it was the kind of uneven, sometimes head-scratching preseason effort the Bears are used to."
Rick Morrissey, Chicago Tribune: "Positives? In no order of importance, Jay Cutler wore very stylish orange-and-black cleats, threw a couple of crisp passes and walked away from his first exhibition game as a Bear without a limp."

Mike Mulligan, Chicago Sun-Times: "A cynic would say Cutler played like a Bears tribute quarterback, throwing an interception off his back heel, Rex Grossman-style; putting up a Chad Hutchinson-like passer rating of 30.8; and seeming determined to match Kyle Orton's three interceptions in his debut Friday for the Denver Broncos."

Jeff Dickerson, ESPN Chicago: "Why does the Led Zeppelin song "Communication Breakdown" keep playing over and over in my head? Oh yeah, because Jay Cutler and Devin Hester certainly didn't seem to be on the page Saturday night regarding Cutler's first-quarter interception on a pass down the sideline intended for Hester."

Boomer, Bear Goggles On: "Don't panic Bears fans.  So the debut of the Jay Cutler Show wasn't great.  It's OK.  Did you ever see the first episode of Seinfeld?  Not so good either, but that show turned into one of the most successful and beloved of all time."

Jeff Hughes
, Da Bears Blog: "Don't worry about Jay Cutler's performance.  Without Matt Forte and Greg Olsen (the team's other two dynamic weapons), it is nearly impossible to gauge how this offense is going to look."

Well, that game certainly showed that our starters are going to have to stand up and be noticed this year. They also have to be very durable! The rest will come.

comments about the defensive failures read exactly like the first 2008 preseason game. I guess we expect that the team should start off like its a playoff game. Let's give it some time.
