|The Chicago Bears take their turn in the examination room after their loss to the Seahawks.|
Is Cutler going to even out his game? Or will his Bears career be defined by stretches of brilliance followed by periods of complete mystery? We celebrated his NFL-high 121.2 passer rating through the first two weeks of the season, noting the nice carryover he had achieved from the end of last season. Since then, however, Cutler has thrown only one touchdown pass, has been sacked 18 times and has a 74.6 passer rating. His arm, and Martz's preference for downfield passing, means there will be some more productive games over time. But if they're followed by such deep dips, it's going to be hard for the Bears to win consistently with Cutler behind center.
