(CBS) Five years ago today, the Bears traded for Jay Cutler, who’s been the franchise quarterback ever since.
Here’s a look at some of Cutler’s numbers since arriving in Chicago:
— 39-28 regular-season record when Cutler starts
— 101 touchdown passes and 75 interceptions, including an NFL-high 26 in 2009
— 14,913 passing yards
— 13 missed regular-season games
— 60.2 completion percentage
— 1-1 playoff record
For better or worse, Cutler is the Bears’ guy, as he signed a seven-year contract extension in January. As we reflect on the past and today’s anniversary, the question is begged moving forward.
Is Cutler the man to lead a city starved for a title to the Super Bowl? Let us know.
