After the chase with the Chargers (33-28), it is now totally clear that the players of Bears have taken new coach Marc Trestman seriously. This issue has been unreasonably pointed out at the training camp by Jay Cutler. After defeating the Chargers in the Soldier Field, the confidence has been shown enormously by the Bears team. The authority of Bears sued Lovie Smith after the season (10-6) and appointed Trestman. The reason behind this was Phil Emery – the General Manager, expected a significant alteration among the team advising. But the other side of the game was that the Bears can’t move with the attitude of the most valuable player from the offense corner.
Again as a whole, while playing with the Chargers for the last four series, it seemed that Cutler was the main person behind the scene of firing the three consecutive coordinators of Bears. A tentative thought of Cutler’s survival has been raised just 5 minutes before the end of the first quarter; Trestman’s new offense can continue again with the earlier unwanted habits. In the videotape, the evidence is almost clear. Cutler has attempted 4/5 passes within 38 yards which statistically displays quite good score of 98.3. But was it really that good? In the small seasons with two quarter length, Cutler seems to be incompatible as always.
Till now, nothing would be scarier rather than Cutler’s performance for the Bears, and the learning curve seems to be unwanted flat in the middle of August. Of course the Bears can show improvement in offense with the Cutler’s enhancement. But for this, Trestman will have to resist him not to compel the ball in the coverage area. The problem was never with the Cutler’s throw but with the approach. Furthermore, Cutler has to prove others wrong and really needs to show some positive developments in his attitude.
