Letter: Cut some slack for Cutler
â€œJay Cutler sucks.â€ Thatâ€™s a phrase I am sick of hearing from Bears fans.
Itâ€™s Cutlerâ€™s second season in the Windy City, and some fans are already expecting a Super Bowl win.
This season he has thrown for 1,483 yards, seven touchdowns, andâ€”despite having thrown seven picks-â€”the Bears are 4-3.
The Bears are first in the NFC North, which no one had expected out of them. Letâ€™s not forget the game against the Packers, in which Cutler had 221 yards passing and an additional 37 rushing. I donâ€™t know about you, but thatâ€™s pretty impressive coming from a guy that had minimal rushing attempts last season.
I think more of the blame should be put on the Bears offensive line that has had a poor 2010 season. So far this season, the o-line has allowed Cutler to be sacked 27 times for minus 138 yards. Thatâ€™s a statistic Chicago and its fans are not proud of. I think everybody in the country remembers the o-lines performance against New York, in which the Giants sacked Cutler nine times in one half. Jay left that game late in the second quarter with a concussion. Iâ€™m not trying to bash the Bears lineman; I just think that fans should get off Cutlerâ€™s back.
