I don't think Lovie was at fault for that, rather than Martz playcalling. He's been through several OC's and while he's taken a beating with sacks. The Bears have tried to give Cutler what he wanted by bringing in his old friends like Earl Bennett, Marshall, Jeremy Bates. Overall, his career is pretty underwhelming with the expectations he was given when drafted where he was.

Also Ted Sundquist confirms my belief that Cutler was given the keys to the Broncos offense before he was ready to do so. I think that more than anything else stunted his growth.
