With a critical game Sunday, Bears quarterback Jay Cutler proclaimed himself prepared to start.
"I feel good," Cutler said. "I'll be ready on Sunday."
Impacted by a rash of injuries, the Bears are thankful that Cutler will play against the Green Bay Packers after injuring his neck last Sunday in Minneapolis.
"There's a lot going into this game. It's Green Bay. We know what's involved there, division game and us kind of skidding a little bit," Cutler said. "It's a game we need."
The Bears only had a walk-through Wednesday with so many players injured.
"You get at this point of the season, and you hope that guys will be smart enough to take a 'mental' day and process information and be prepared on Sunday," Cutler said.
Cutler, who is just 1-6 against the Packers, noted there's a lot of areas the Bears have to improve to end their funk against its rival.
"I've got to play better, first and foremost and get the rest of the guys up to speed with me," he said. "You've got to run the ball better, pass the ball better, block better - there's no one area we can't improve in."
