Whether or not you agree with Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman or not, Jay Cutler will be the starting quarterback against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. It will mark Cutler’s most important game since the 2010 NFC Championship Game, when Cutler exited the game with an injury and the Packers earned a trip to the Super Bowl and mark the most important three games of his career.
If you see Cutler looking over his shoulder on Sunday, it’s likely because the footsteps have never been louder. That’s due to the fact the Josh McCown has performed well in Cutty’s absence. McCown and the Bears had a coming out party on Monday Night Football he threw for 68% of his passes and accounted for 4 passing and 1 rushing touchdown. The Bears didn’t punt and scored on all eight of their possessions.
