Bears QB Jay Cutler happy to be past pressure of last week


The Chicago Bears had been playing well without Jay Cutler in the line up and starting back up Josh McCown at quarterback. When Cutler returned from injury it forced head coach Marc Trestman to make a tough decision.

He decided to ditch the hot-hand and return to starter Jay Cutler. The Bears got the win over the Browns. Cutler completed 22 of 31 passes for 265 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions, and he feels relieved.

“I do,” Cutler said, via the Chicago Sun-Times. “Last week was a tough week with everything surrounding it, the implications of the game, if we did lose the game, having to walk into the media room and deal with you guys if we did lose. All those things weigh on you.

“So being able to move on from that, I think this week is a tougher week gameplan-wise for us, but we should be up for the challenge Sunday.”

Cutler was proud of the way his teammates handled the quarterback debate as well.

“Everyone’s human in this building,” Cutler said. “Another reason to acknowledge it is the guys did such a great job of handling it. Another reason you want to acknowledge it is we were able to hear it, deal with it in our own certain way and move on and get the job done on Sunday.”
