Chicago Bears need to give up on Jay Cutler; but Marc Trestman won’t do it

cutlerThe Chicago Bears need to give up on Jay Cutler, but their head coach will sit him down. The former Canadian Football coach needs to move on, but he just refuses to see what the team has in former Notre Dame quarterback Jimmy Clausen.

“Jay [Cutler] is our quarterback,” Trestman said. “If he’s available to play, he’s going to play. Jimmy is continuing to work in the offense, and he practices. We certainly like having him on our football team, but as we get ready for New Orleans next week, Jay will get the reps and he’ll be playing.”

Signed to a seven-year contract worth $126.7 million back in January, Cutler hasn’t given the Bears much return on investment, considering the quarterback currently leads the league in turnovers (21) and entered Thursday’s loss to the Dallas Cowboys ranked 30th among 34 qualified signal callers in completion percentage (49.5) on throws deeper than 5 yards down the field.
