Default Cutler once again proves his value

Cutler once again proves his value in win
By Larry Mayer

The backup quarterback was always one of the most popular players on the Bears roster, but that changed in 2009 when Jay Cutler was traded in a trade with the Broncos.
Not too long ago, the backup quarterback was always one of the Bears' most popular players. Fans chanted his name and newspaper columnists called for him to be anointed the starter.

But all of that changed on April 2, 2009 when Jay Cutler was acquired in a trade with the Broncos.

Cutler again proved his value as Bears starting quarterback Sunday when he returned after missing one game due to a concussion and helped lead his team to a 28-10 win over the Vikings.

Repeatedly firing darts into tight windows in Minnesota's cover-two defense, Cutler completed 23 of 31 passes for 188 yards with one touchdown, one interception and an 86.5 passer rating.

"Every team doesn't have a guy like we have at our quarterback position," said coach Lovie Smith. "When plays break down, you've got a guy that can scramble around and make a play, a guy that can complete any throw you ask him to.

"And then just the confidence that comes with having your guy, your quarterback, no matter how it's looking, the guys have confidence that with Jay leading us we can come back."

After the Bears failed to score a touchdown with Jason Campbell starting at quarterback in San Francisco, Cutler engineered three TD drives Sunday against the Vikings. He completed 15 of 17 passes for 117 yards in the first half as the Bears built a commanding 25-3 halftime lead.

"He was ready to go," said receiver Brandon Marshall. "He was fired up. His [passes] had a lot of zip on them all week. He wanted it perfect in practice and I think it showed in the game, it transferred over because he was on fire."

In the past two seasons, the Bears are 15-5 and have scored 44 offensive touchdowns in the 20 games Cutler has started, and they're 1-6 with only seven TDs in the seven games he's missed.

Looks like the Bears are all set, wish they could get a rematch with the Texans. It would be a good one!
