BBAO: Cutler buys in to Martz's system

We're Black and Blue All Over:

I suggest we all cut, paste and remember this quote from Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, who has spent most of this offseason lavishing sweet nothings on offensive coordinator Mike Martz. Courtesy Jon Greenberg of ESPNChicago.com:
"He makes you want to come to work every day. He's so creative, he's doing fun stuff. He's finding ways to win. That's all you can ask for as a player, to have a coach that loves football and is going to do everything possible to be successful. I think that's what the great coaches are able to do and what Mike's done in the past."

Based on what we've seen of Cutler's personality, I'm going to take a leap and suggest he's not the type to fake such rosy assessments. So I think it's fair to say that as the Bears concluded organized team activities this week, Cutler was sold on Martz's system. Will it remain that way throughout the season? The answer to that question will be a key to the Bears' 2010 season.
