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.

    McCown, McCown, McCown…all day…McCown. It’s not about having a stronger arm, it’s about using the pieces on the chessboard effectively! Cutler looks to Marshall first most times instead of seeking the best matchup. I feel like Alshon Jeffrey really blossomed during Jay’s absence and now may not see as many targets thrown his way. Jay needs to leave his safety blanket. Sure there, was game where Alshon received more targets due to triple coverage on Marshall, but I don’t think we’ll see that again. The offense clicked on all cyclinders in his absence and I don’t think that was by chance. Like Coach Boss said, Jay has had the time to sit and watch how this offense is supposed to work. Also, Jay doesn’t have a good record against winning teams, If I’m not mistaken. I don’t want to see Aaron Rodgers and the pack fighting for a playoff spot/the division facing off against Pick-6 Cutler!
