The Bears offense took a little while to get going against the Colts on Sunday, but they really took off once everything clicked into gear.
Quarterback Jay Cutler threw for 333 yards and two touchdowns while running backs Matt Forte and Michael Bush combined for three more scores in a 41-21 victory. That led to a lot of cheering at Soldier Field, some of which went on at the wrong time as far as Cutler was concerned. When the Bears first made a trip into the red zone, the crowd was making so much noise that it was hard for the offense to communicate. Cutler reached out to the fans for help.
“Please, please, please let’s tone it down a little bit when we’re down in the 20 you’re more than welcome to yell and scream and do whatever you want to do after we score, but please, let’s go ahead and quiet the stadium down and save it for after we score. Thank you. That’s my PSA,” Cutler said, via CBS Chicago.
Cutler did look frustrated on the field when the crowd didn’t respond to the universal “quiet down” signal he made with his arms and forced the team to call a timeout. You’d like to avoid such things, although it’s entirely possible that it will keep happening if the Bears keep executing on offense the way they did on Sunday.
Should that come to pass, go ahead and file it under good problems to have.
