The rumors are already beginning even as Bears QB Jay Cutler discovers the extent of his injury that head coach Mark Trestman may already be looking for a replacement more suited to run his offense according to NFL Media columnist Michael Silver.
“Think about it — he (Trestman) had his greatest success with Rich Gannon, who was smart and moved well but wasn’t anybody’s idea of a big thrower,” one source familiar with the Bears’ situation told Silver. “If you’re him, do you want to spend $20 million a year on Cutler, who might not be the best fit, or do you want to find someone you can mold who’s efficient? And if you think about how deep this (next) draft class might be, he can identify his guy and get him relatively cheap for the next few years.”

With so much talk about whether Jay Cutler was indeed the man to take the reigns of the Bears at the beginning of the season, it surprises no on the squad that he has led them to back to back 4th quarter victories. Last week’s victims were the Cincinnati Bengals. This week, the cut ran much deeper as they ran the same drill against NFC North rivals Minnesota Vikings.
“He’s just ice cold, man,” Brandon Marshall said. Marshall also added that he calls Cutler “Mr. Fourth Quarter.” ” So, I really appreciate and am grateful to play with him.”
Head Coach Marc Trestman was impressed with his QB’s work.
“He had moments of adversity in this game and he never flinched and the guys around him never did, either,” Trestman said.
