Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has shown a lot of courage, taking so much abuse. But former St. Louis Rams quarterback Kurt Warner watched film of the Bears loss to the New Orleans Saints and noticed a troubling issue.
"As I watch the film last week of [Chicago] versus the Saints, I started to see a gunslinger that's gotten gun-shy. He's a guy that's starting to expect the pressure to be in the backfield," Warner said on NFL Network's game day morning show. "There's plenty of blame to go around but something's got to get fixed. They have to figure out something; somebody's got to do the right thing... There's so many different things going on right now. You can't just point the finger in one area."
Cutler has already been sacked a league-high 11 times, putting him on pace for the NFL record. David Carr's 76 sacks seems untouchable. But the Bears may threaten that dubious record if they can't shore up pass protection and other issues to prevent Cutler from taking so much abuse.
