Jay Cutler said that not only did he not try to keep the ball away from DeAngelo Hall but he would go after the Redskins' cornerback again if given the chance.
Hall had four interceptions --- including one he returned 92 yards for a touchdown --- in Washington's 17-14 win over the Bears at Soldier Field on Sunday.
"No, not at all," Cutler said when asked if there was talk of throwing the ball away from Hall. "I've played against him bfore. There's no reason to shy away from him. That's hard for me to say after throwing four picks to a guy. Still, if we had to play them tomorrow, I'd still go after him every time if we could."
Cutler said he would take the blame for all four interceptions, although one came when Johnny Knox didn't run a precise route, allowing Hall to step inside and make the pick.
"I'll take them all," Cutler said. "I'll have to take a look at the film. Obviously, it's very discouraging right now. We let a game get away from us. Our defense had every right to be mad at us. We blew the game offensively. Most of that falls on my shoulders."
Although the defense played well enough to win after only allowing one touchdown, defensive end Julius Peppers said he wasn't mad at the offense.
"It ain't about being mad at nobody," Peppers said. "We just have to be mad at the outcome. We all could've changed the outcome of that game. That's the frustrating thing."
