Love him or hate him, it’s time for Bears fans to start appreciating Jay Cutler. While he has consistently finds a way to have a costly turnover, in the early stages of this season, Cutler looked to be flourishing under the new offense ran by John Fox and Adam Gase.

In Week 1 he played well despite the late four-quarter interception and was doing so without a fully healthy Alshon Jeffery, and in Week 2 with Jeffery on the sidelines, Cutler started the game 8-8 with a touchdown before his interception and injury.

In relief for Cutler was Jimmy Clausen and he brought more concern than relief under center. The offense looked slow, out of sync, and simply awful with Clausen at quarterback. Cutler may get on the nerves of Bears fans everywhere, but the reality is he’s the best option.
