Martz says nothing but good things about Cutler

| 4 Comments | No TrackBacks

Mike Martz spoke with Larry Mayer of ChicagoBears.com and said everything you would expect him to say, such as:

"I think overall Jay made remarkable progress through the year," Martz said, referring to quarterback Jay Cutler, of course. "Anytime you take a veteran quarterback and give him a new system, it's always going to be a little difficult. We were all kind of feeling our way through the season. But I was very pleased."

The Bears' offensive coordinator told Mayer that he expects Cutler to benefit from having a year in the offense under his belt next season.

"There's no question that it's going to help him tons," Martz told Mayer. "We'll get better around him personnel-wise and we'll play better too. He understands his role better too and what we're asking him to do. He doesn't have to win the game [by himself]. He just has to lead this team."

Predictably, Martz focuses on Cutler's strengths and not his weaknesses. Nothing about his fundamentals, for example, were mentioned. Here's the link:

Oh my when Larry Mayer does an interview rarely if ever does he pull any punches. Mr Mayer to me is like tyhe godfather of hardhitting journalism. He is Walter Jacobson rolled in with the entire 60 minutes team. Larry Lighting strikes fast and hard but he never strikes the same place twice. His questions like how do you feel today and what do you think of the weather sends chills up my spine. How Martz is still walking after that cyclone of interrogation is a surprise to yours truly.

Can't stand to read ANYTHING by Larry Mayer. Is he Jerry Angelo's brother -in-law or something ? While I understand he is a Bears employee, alittle honesty goes a long way to respectability. Quit telling me that Chris Williams or Jonny Knox will "develop".If they don't get it by now, they probably never will.

i love my team the bears but was let down but i anit on the feild to play and i understand what is going on watching the game i still will because i am a bear fan stuck around thease dawm cheese head i cant wait untill the bears stick it to them all and win it all where i can sing the chat song all over the place!!!!! go bears go
