Jay Cutler is promising more interceptions this season. No really. Check out these comments from his appearance on the Waddle and Silvy show:
“Whenever you throw 26 or 27, whatever it was last year, it’s definitely going to be a point of emphasis,” he said. “It comes with it. I’m going to throw some this year,” he said Wednesday on “The Waddle & Silvy Show” on ESPN 1000. “I’m not going to lie about that.”
Glad we’ve got that out of the way. But wait, there’s more:
“There are going to be some balls that are picked off,” Cutler said. “It’s part of the game. But we can’t worry about it. Defenses will make adjustments, we have to make them back.”
“The guys are going to get knocked off routes, something is going to happen, the defender is going to get in the way, and the ball’s going to be gone,” Cutler said. “That’s part of this offense. It’s not a read and see what happens and let it fly, it’s a read and let it fly. So balls are going to be in the air.
“And they understand that. That’s been a point of emphasis since February and March. So they’re conscious of it. They don’t want to be the guy that isn’t in the right spot. They have a lot of pride. It’s a young group, but they understand what the impact could be if they’re not in the right spot.”
The impact of them not being in the right spot? It will be this:
