Ho, ho, ho! Baffoe Claus here. I’m way better than Ditka Claus because I don’t smell like cigars, I haven’t been compromised by endorsement commitments (yet), and children are genuinely happy when I show up to their homes bearing gifts (pizza is the greatest gift of all; wine for children, not so much).
Trestman has to motivate his team this week, especially after the 54-11 debacle against the Eagles.
The month of December pumped new life into several teams including the Bears, setting up important games in the final two weeks of the regular season.
A weekend report from FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer insinuated that many inside the Bears’ locker room were unhappy with the decision to start Jay Cutler over Josh McCown in Sunday’s win.
Don’t you think there’s a good reason why the Bears didn’t give McCown that extra dollar?
Before he returned to the field, Jay Cutler had to make sure his teammates wanted him back.
Unless Cutler gets hurt again, Josh McCown’s season is over–and it should be, because Jay Cutler is the better quarterback who gives the Bears the best chance of winning.
It was over, all of it. Twitter said so.
As multiple reports went public about teammates privately not supporting him, Jay Cutler took the field at First Energy Stadium with the weight of a franchise on his powerful right arm.
The absolute undeniable fact that Cutler is the better quarterback and athlete than McCown is one thing, but you need to feel good, dontcha?
Either way, neither side seems concerned about the future.
Jay Cutler will be the Bears’ starting quarterback for Sunday’s game against the Browns.
The water cooler talk in the city and burbs regarding the Bears is no doubt a raging debate of Jay or Josh at quarterback. However, the most pressing concern remains the run defense.
Bears head coach Marc Trestman said he’s optimistic Cutler will be medically cleared.
Josh McCown might not be the future for the Bears, but he’s certainly got the team thinking of options outside of Jay Cutler.
At age 34, Josh McCown is playing the best football of his career.
The Bears are a mere middling football team, making stories.
Brian Urlacher knows who he wants starting at quarterback for the Bears moving forward.
Sean Lee, meet Brandon Marshall’s shoulder.
The Bears did not punt and did not commit a turnover for the first time in franchise history.
