Since being traded to the Chicago Bears in 2009, Jay Cutler has hardly been the elite quarterback that Bears fans thought they were getting. Instead, the 27-year old Vanderbilt product threw almost as many interceptions (26) as he did touchdowns (27). Cutler’s first season with the Bears saw his total yardage from his previous season in Denver drop more than 900 yards and his INTs increase by 8. But Bears fans need to chill out, because Cutler told local ESPN radio that he’s going to throw picks. Oh yes, Bears fans, he’s going to throw some picks.
Cutler’s comments came as multiple Chicago news outlets have made his proneness to throw interceptions a preseason theme. In fairness to Cutler, he deserves to be upset about this focus on his mistakes, as he was also sacked 35 times last season and fumbled the ball 9 times as well. You’ve got to evenly spread the criticism gravy on this Chicago Bears biscuit.
