It’s the middle of May and training camp is still 2-plus months away. That means it’s the perfect time to look at the Chicago Bears and assess their prospects for the 2012 season.
During his three seasons in Chicago, Cutler has been sacked 110 times, including an NFL-high 52 times in 2010.
Just three months ago, I offered some advice to newly hired Bears general manager Phil Emery, and for the most part he took it.
Before we move forward and completely forget about the fiasco otherwise known as Jerry Angelo on Draft Day, let’s recap his top selections over the years.
