Bears QB Jay Cutler Hopes O-Line Steps Up
Jay Cutler was speaking honestly. Maybe that’s why it was so jarring.
On the first “Jay Day’’ of the regular season, Cutler stepped to the podium at Halas Hall on Wednesday and said, yeah, the Bears have all kinds of shiny new toys, but they won’t mean squat if the line can’t block.
“We have some guys who can play on the outside,’’ Cutler said. “There is no doubt about that. Hopefully, it’s going to make my job easier just being able to get them the ball and let them work. Up front the guys know there is some pressure on them because Matt Forte can run if we give him holes, and if I get the guys the ball on the outside and we hold up and have time, we can make some big plays.’’
It sounds as if J’Marcus Webb at left tackle and Chris Spencer at left guard were the lesser of several evils. That’s Cutler’s blind side, and if that’s the way it came down -- players “winning’’ a spot because the competition was inept or absent -- then I think we all understand why the quarterback continues to make it an issue.
