Welcome to the first instalment of Cutty’s Corner.  The focus of this article will be to discuss  Jay Cutler each week.  We will review his game performance, statistics and any other pertinent facts that relate to Jay.

Coach Trestman has a better handle on this team than you, me, the media or the fans.

The one thing I won’t be doing is reviewing the past, well at least not too much.  I might save that for the bye week.  So for now let’s leave all the polarizing aspects of Jay Cutler on the shelf and talk about the Falcons game.

For five weeks the media and fans have been wondering will the offense ever get going.  Over the last two games, it looked like it was a 30 minute offense, and the media was starting to beat the anti Trestman drum.

That all ended with Cutler marched into Atlanta and put a torch to the Falcons.  Not only did Jay have a good statistical game, but he had total comand over the offense from start to finish.  His stat line reads likes this, 26/38 381 yards 1 TD 0 INT, he was also 3-5 on passes 20 yds or more .  Of all the statistics out there, the one that I like is Jay’s performance under pressure. Right now he ranks third in accuracy while being pressured  at  73.9%, and only 1 INT and 5 TD’s!  One other tidbit, is that Jay ranks second by PFF on QB rushing, behind Ryan Fitzpatrick.

We saw a lot more play action, and Jay spread the ball around; Forte, team leader, with 10 snares, Marshall six catches, Alshon with 5 and Bennett had four.  We also saw the vertical game come back with two beautiful pass plays. Jeffery’s 74 yarder, Marshall’s 47 yard catch. Also, Josh Morgan got his first Bears TD on a nice slant through the linebackers.
