Bears quarterback Jay Cutler said developing the timing with his receivers is ongoing.
"I think it's always going to be a process, not only for me, but also for the receivers," he said. "They've got to be at the right spot at the right depth at the right time against the right coverage. There's a lot of variables involved and it's a process.
We're still going through it."
The play of the receivers hasn't always looked sharp, but Cutler expressed confidence in his group.
"I think we're really good with the receivers right now. I like what they're going out there so they've just got to keep improving every day," he said.
Cutler said offensive coordinator Mike Martz is mindful of several keys during this bye week.
"Mike's aware of everything - the running game, getting the ball out of my hands a little quicker, helping out the offensive line," Cutler said. "There's a lot of things."
Finally, Cutler downplayed any criticism directed at him.
Asked if he ever listens to it, including if it comes from a Hall of Famer, Cutler said, "No.
"I don't listen to anything. I listen to what's happening inside our building. There's so many distractions out there, we've just got to hold ourselves up and concentrate on what we're doing and listen to our coaches and go from there."
