As the Bears head into a bye week, we couldn’t help but share with you some amusing quotes from the NFL season. Who said he was the best but didn’t want to say it?

The Bears already clinched a playoff spot for the first time since 2006 and it’s Jay Cutler’s first NFL post-season of his career.
Has Jay Cutler been a disappointment as a Bear? Obviously 2009 didn’t end the way anyone wanted it to but you can’t argue what Jay has been able to do in his last 15 starts where he’s compiled a QB-rating of 93.8 and won 11 games.
