Default Bears GM not concerned with Jay Cutler's life

By Vaughn McClure

There have been reports circulating about concerns over Jay Cutler's party life being a bad mix for a player living with diabetes. A recent photo posted on deadspin.com showed the Bears quarterback out at a bar with an unidentified drink in hand.

Bears general manager Jerry Angelo did his homework on Cutler before trading for him, and Angelo doesn't seem to be worried about Cutler's off-the-field life.

``I'm not going to micro-manage a person,'' Angelo said. ``If we have to do that, that's not a good sign. Some lessons they have to see amongst themselves. I don't think that's a big thing at this point. It's what he does on Sunday is how we're going to evaluate him. That's the bottom line.

``He's got a good foundation coming in here. He's a young quarterback. He's played in this league. He's shown what he can do. He gets it.''

Angelo was asked specifically about Cutler's drinking habits related to the diabetes.

``When we did our research ... we know he goes out, we know he does those things,'' Angelo said. ``We talked to our medical people. We talked to the Denver medical people.It comes with the territory. We're comfortable with it. I really can't answer it beyond that.''

What I've been saying all along. More evidence that the medical community is on my side.

He is going to have a short career boozing hard with the disease he has. Wilson was able to play because he said what he had to do was just watch his diet and eat healthy but the boozing is very bad with that disease.

I think the fact he did give up all that speaks volumes as to how big of a problem it really is.......... not very.

LT1 was a freaking crackhead but he produced ..... that's all teams care about.

Let's not forget the guy is only 25. I can't speak for anyone else but at 25 I partied plenty hard.
Now if he's drinking before games that's another story but so far that's basicly all hearsay by people on this board.

All in all it's Chicago's problem now.

But I thought all the Cutler haters were just making this stuff up! Where is BPC and Atwater his ass to accuse the GM of lying? Where are all the people that said this was all part of an elaborate smear campaign hatched by McDaniels? I guess McDaniels is still trying to smear Cutler and now he's enlisted the Bears GM to help! Oh the humanity!

well we should see by the end of this year. Really it's a combo of WR and the QB's throwing them the ball. You have Denver with better WR and Chicago with (my opinion) a better QB.

I guess it will also depend on if Chicago opens up their offense at all, we know Denver will be throwing a bunch this year just based on McD's past history.

Um no. I would say Cutler sober is way better than Orton sober, but if Cutler is an alcoholic then he has a disease and everything around him is going to degenerate until he gets it fixed. Ironically Orton has been there and cleaned up and that's a large part of why he did so well last year. Orton behind our line and with our receivers will be pretty good.

I agree. Even if Cutler fails, if we don't hit on this draft then we lost in the trade.

He hasn't landed in the hospital, then again these are the same OM doctors who declared that Brandon Marshall was going to be unfit to catch balls last season.

Well according to some people around here Cutler was/is an alcoholic and was hung over every home game last season... If that's the case then a drunk Cutler already proved that he is far superior to a now clean and sober Orton.

Regardless.... Doesn't matter any more.

You mean the same ones who were exonerated when Marshall said at the pro-bowl that his arm still is numb and probably won't be the same?
