Bears, Jay Cutler bracing for big test vs. Giants

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Coming off an impressive performance against the Washington Redskins in his 2012 preseason debut, Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is looking merely to ''continue on the same path we're on'' in Saturday's ''dress rehearsal'' preseason game against the New York Giants at the Meadowlands.

''You want to convert third downs, keep scoring when we get into the red zone,'' Cutler said at his weekly press conference Monday at Halas Hall. ''We want to eliminate turnovers, get big plays with the passing game and running game. Just keep executing.''

Cutler acknowledged it will be a key test for the offensive line. The Giants sacked Cutler nine times and knocked him out of the game in the first half of a regular-season game in 2010.

"I don't think anyone else in the league has five, six guys ... they rotate in that can play like those guys, so it's going to be a tough test for them,'' Cutler said. ''We're going to try and help them out as much as possible. But at the end of the game we'll have a pretty good idea on what we have up front.''
