When Bears quarterback Jay Cutler walked off the field after a three-turnover, six-sack first half, he may or may not have remarked on the loyalty of his home fans. My lip reading’s rusty.
But after they escaped with a 23-22 win over the Panthers, Cutler admitted the offense was not where it should have been.
“I’d boo us too, . . . It was a boo-worthy performance,” Cutler said, via Fred Mitchell of the Chicago Tribune. “It was pathetic offensively what we put out there offensively.
“We’ve got to get better. We know that, our fans know that. Luckily enough, we got out of there with a win.”
Well, luck, a Panthers team that’s now 1-10 in games decided by a touchdown or less under Ron Rivera, and Cutler himself.
Playing after a rib injury last week, Cutler turned in another good finish, moving his team efficiently up and down the field in the fourth quarter for a comeback.
Say what you want about his attitude, he’s getting the job done for the 6-1 Bears.
