Jay Cutler is about to take a break. But after the Bears final O.T.A. session, Cutler continued to rave about the team's new offense.
"I love it. There's a lot to like about it," Cutler said. "The ball's in the air, and we're doing some great stuff in the run game.
"It's personnel-based, so we're trying to get guys open, trying to find spacing for them and create matchups for them."
Mike Martz's offense is more taxing mentally, Cutler said, because it's new to him and everyone else. But he said Martz has done a good job of communicating with the players.
"But Mike did a great job of getting everybody ready in meetings, doing enough walkthroughs and things out here so everyone would feel comfortable," Cutler said.
"You've got to be happy with where we are. It's something to build on."
Cutler said Martz "makes you want to come to work every day."
"He's so creative, he's doing fun stuff and he's finding ways to win, and that's all you can ask for as a player, to have a coach that loves football and is going to do everything possible to put you in position to be successful," Cutler said. "That's what the great coaches have been able to do, that's how Mike has been in the past, and I don't see him changing his ways at all."
Despite the perception, Cutler said Martz's offense actually makes things easier for the quarterback.
"Once you understand it, it kind of simplifies itself."
