Jay Cutler kicked off his new radio show on ESPN 1000 earlier today and had some really interesting insights to pass along.  Most eye-popping to me was that Jay called audibles a lot on Sunday.  Like a lot.

"“A lot. We got out of a lot of stuff. Little things as far as changing routes, protections, changing a run from side to side. We did stuff a lot, 50-60 percent of the time.“That’s what it’s all about. It’s hard for an offensive coordinator to dial up each and every play, and it’s going to be a perfect defense. It’s hard to do. It’s almost impossible to do. Every once in awhile he’s going to dial one up. He dialed up the touchdown pass to Alshon (Jeffery). That was straight up his call. Great call, perfect call. We got the perfect coverage, and it worked. Most of the time there has to be some little adjustments by players, and that’s what we get paid to do.”"

Remember when Mike Martz wouldn’t let him have dessert unless he ate all his veggies?  It looks like Jay’s now a member of the clean plate club.  Don’t choke on all that freedom Jay.
