The Bears have underachieved all season, bringing a 5-9 record into Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions. It’s defense has been non-existent. It’s offensive line has been just that – offensive. The offense that is stocked with weapons (Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jefferies, Martellus Bennett, and Matt Forte) cannot get out its own way.
And one of the main culprits is Jay Cutler.
There is no reason on God’s green earth that a QB with such immense talent could be as bad as Cutler is right now. He is responsible for 30 (30!!!) turnovers. Now buffonish head coach Marc Trestman benched Cutler’s ass in favor of the immortal Jimmy Clausen.
I think it’s time for the Bears to jettison Cutler. Too bad he is just 14 games into a seven-year, $126.7 million contract, which means he will count too much against the salary cap the next two season (at least $18 million). The Bears may try to trade him, though they may not get but so much in return in terms of draft picks.
Nevertheless, Cutler is not the leader the Bears need for him to be, so they have to cut the cord somehow.
I’ll also go a step forward and call Cutler the second coming of Jeff George.
Now having said all of that, is it all Cutler’s fault? Hell no. Coach Trestman has failed Cutler and his team and deserves to go. Trestman single-handedly ruined the Bears’ defense. In fact, it doesn’t help that the Bears are questioning Trestman’s discipline tactics.
And let’s not stop with Cutler and Trestman. The Bears should fire the general manager for having the audacity to give Cutler that enormous contract. The entire coaching staff should go. The entire defensive side of the ball should be shown the door for being so statistically “turrible”.
I feel so bad for Bears fans. They are in my prayers…
