Bennett sets lofty goal for Cutler


LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- If you're going to dream, dream big. That's what Bears wide receiver Earl Bennett did when discussing Jay Cutler on Monday.

"He's going to bounce back," Bennett said. "Hopefully he'll throw for like 600 yards (against the Vikings) and set the record. He's going to come out firing, I know that."

In case you were wondering; Norm Van Brocklin set the all-time single game record with 554 passing yards in 1951. Cutler -- who did throw for 447 yards last year against Cleveland -- managed only 147 yards in the first meeting with Minnesota. That would be quite a turnaround.
