Monday Morning QB

The Chicago Bears’ first team offense has not scored a touchdown in three preseason games, which is usually something you blame on the quarterback. cutler-skinny2However Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has played well. Not just in the preseason games, but in practice too. Cutler has not thrown an interception in 33 pass attempts, completing 75.8 percent of his throws (25 of 33) for a quarterback rating of 91.6.

Yes, Jay Cutler has zero turnovers in preseason and he hardly tossed picks at the team’s training camp in Bourbonnais, Illinois. The very same Cutler who led the NFL with 24 giveaways in 2014. He is really showing progress. Cutler is doing all of this with Chicago’s top four wide receivers hurt: Alshon Jeffery, Eddie Royal, Marquess Wilson, and rookie Kevin White). Maybe he’ll be fortunate enough to work with a full array of receivers in Week 1 (except Kevin White) against Green Bay but the line is another story.chicago-bears-quarterback-jay-cutler

The pass protection is way below average; Cutler has been sacked three times in the preseason. It also seems whenever the offense is on the move, a member of the line commits a penalty. The starting offense line picked up three flags in just more than two quarters of play against the Bengals. The Bears don’t have a permanent solution at right tackle either. But as for Cutler, he’s doing good and progressing, which is something Bears fans should be excited about. He seems to be earning the trust of head coach John Fox, as well. “The good news is, I don’t think we’ve turned it over a bunch. We have moved the ball. Jay has been efficient,” Fox said. Despite all the injuries, Jay Cutler improving and working well with new coaches are very good signs.
