He didn’t single out the offensive line, his receivers, or take full responsibility himself for Sunday’s poor offensive showing against Seattle, instead Bears quarterback Jay Cutler admitted the entire offense must improve.
“It takes eleven guys, this offense is so detailed (that) if one guy is off its going to have a traumatic effect on the outcome of the play” said Cutler, who was sacked six more times on Sunday while completing only 17 of 39 pass attempts.

Cutler also went on to downplay the idea he needs the ability to audible out of plays in Mike Martz’s offense:
“No, not in this offense…if something happens and a play gets blown up it means someone missed an assignment.”
Cutler went on to add the blame for third down struggles (0 for 12 vs. Seattle) to the entire offense.
“Like everything else its going to start up front with those guys and I’m going to to have to identify the coverage and get the ball out on time. We have nowhere to go but up.”
Cutler also spoke on the recent fines defensive players have been handed out for hits to the head, his relationship with Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan, and his respect for Donovan McNabb.
