Jay Cutler to Return as Bears QB

Looks like the big off-season question for the Bears has finally been answered — Jay Cutler will return as the starting quarterback next season:

Most Bears fans were probably hoping last season’s disaster was the end of Cutler in Chicago, but realistically that was never going to be the case. His contract is simply to big to move — what team wants to take a chance on a JC resurrection for $15.5 million?

There really aren’t many options left for the Bears, so why not try and make lemons out of lemonade. After all, a bad Jay Cutler is still better than most other available QB options in the league.

Not like expectations for the Bears will be high next season either — first season with John Fox will be more of clean up the Trestman mess, so why not see if he can mold Cutler into winner. Highly unlikely, but still better than Jimmy Clausen.

Time to get back to Bears football — solid defense and running the ball — and signing Pernell McPhee was a great start.
