Jay Cutler laughed when asked if he would have more chances to scramble in Mike Martz's offense.
"I don't think you want to use my scrambling abilities the way we did on Saturday," he said, referring to the Bears offensive line surrendering six sacks in a 32-17 loss to the Raiders at Soldier Field. "We want to try to incorporate some nakeds and some bootlegs and stuff but maybe not in the manner we did Saturday. The line, they had some struggles, like we talked about after the game. They were in the right spots. It was just a matter of setting correctly and stuff like that. They're going to take care of it. I'm not worried about it. This week is going to be a good test for them and I expect them to be there."
Even though left tackle Chris Williams allowed Raiders outside linebacker Kamerion Wimbley to sack Cutler four times, Cutler said he didn't feel the need to try to boost the confidence of his old Vanderbilt teammate.
"He's a professional," Cutler said. "He has been in the league long enough. He knows what we expect out of him, which is very big things. He's our left tackle. He's a No. 1 pick. I've played with him many years now. He knows all of our expectations are high and I don't think anybody has higher expectations for Chris than himself."
Cutler said there isn't time for him to address problems on the offensive line between plays. He leaves that up to veteran center Olin Kreutz.
"Olin does a lot of that stuff," he said. "I talk to them on the sideline a little bit but in between plays Olin is taking care of that. I'm getting the play and getting the guys in the huddle organized. Those guys are professionals. On this team, these guys are old enough and they've been around and they expect enough out of themselves that I don't have to do a lot of yelling. I've heard Olin a couple times during a game get fired up but we're going to take care of it in our own way."
