Jay Cutler started his career, both in Denver and Chicago, as a gunslinger. However, with the Bears recent focus on a balanced offensive attack same people are asking if Cutler has been reduced to a game manager.

“I don’t know if game manager is the right term,” Zach Zaidman said on the Mully and Hanley Show. “Because I think you’re winning because of Jay Cutler’s play. Usually, the term game manager you associate with someone that you’re winning with as opposed to because of.”

But its obvious that the Bears have changed their mindset on offense. And while that isn’t a result of anything Cutler has done wrong, the way he has played in the new offensive approach is a big reason for the success.

“When I look at the way Cutler’s playing, he’s playing wining football,” Zaidman said. “That’s why they traded two first round picks, a starting NFL quarterback and a third round pick to acquire him. They wanted a guy that you could win games because of. And you see it when he’s right and he has time to throw and he makes smart decisions. I mean there’s a lot of talent there. You just want to see it on a consistent basis.”

If Cutler continues to play the way he has been recently, the Bears could be looking to make some noise in the playoffs.
