Default BEARS: Cutler involved with OC interviews

One of the key factors in deciding on an offensive coordinator will be how he relates to franchise quarterback Jay Cutler. It’s so important that Cutler has become part of the evaluation process at the Bears’ request. The four-year veteran flew in to meet with candidate Ken Zampese, the Bengals’ quarterbacks coach, earlier in the week and is expected to weigh in on other candidates.

“We’ve involved Jay, and we’d like to have him meet with (all) the candidates,” Angelo said. “He understands the whole process, and he knows we want him involved. This is not the first time we’ve involved a player. This isn’t new to us.”

Cutler is not involved to the point of suggesting candidates, but he provides input when he can. His first choice would have been Jeremy Bates, his position coach during his final season in Denver. But Bates is expected to be part of Pete Carroll’s new Seattle Seahawks staff.

“I think he was disappointed,” Angelo said of Cutler, “because of the relationship had had with him. But he’s very optimistic we’ll get the right guy.”

When in the hell did Cutler become a Mannning/Brady/Elway/Marino/(enter hall of fame QB) that can call the shot of the franchise?

I'm so glad he's gone. All the talent in the world, but an ego that will hold him back until a team/coach puts a foot in his ass and shows him how to be a winner.

Totally right. You have to earn that stuff. He needs a coach who will.. you know.. coach him. Someone who can put him in his place and help to overcome his obvious deficiencies. When he's hiring the guy, I don't see how that happens.

Yup, the fact that they would involve a player who has earned no such right to weigh in on such matters spells certain trouble for that organization. They've made their bed, and now they have to sleep in it.

If you're interviewing the guy the implication is that you have some say in who you go on to hire. Given Jay's past actions if they simply hire the guy over his objections... that's just not going to go well. In practical terms, he's calling the shots.

So what you guys are saying is, you are smarter than an NFL front office and know how to run a team better than the Bears? Isn't this the response I always get when questioning some extremely dumb moves made by this team? Maybe its that we should be upset about the Bears making dumb decisions and not care about the Broncos? I don't get this forums logic on most any issue.

It's like they think Jay lead the league in touchdowns and not interceptions.

I don't really see the big deal... If we were interviewing new OC's I think it would be a good idea if Orton had a limited role.

I think this is absolutely the right thing to do. Why wouldn't you want the guy who is going to be executing the offense involved and bought in?

Like the old saying - In for a penny, in for a pound. The Bears' fate is sealed at this point. They just have to roll with it and hope for the best.

When you invest as much as you have in Jay...you involve him in the discussion.

It has nothing to do with 'calling his shots' or 'earning no such his right'....all the Bears eggs were placed in the Jay Cutler basket last year. You better make sure that him and the OC have a good marriage. It is smart business.

How about those playoffs? Cutler got us this record with the worst defense in Broncos history. We come back with a top 10 defense and the same offense around Orton and end the same.

If only some people could grow a brain. The world would be a much better place. Oh yeah, did I meantion Cutler also had less experience in these two seasons I compared?

Cutler needs an OC that he respects and trust first. He doesn't need an OC that will put him in place more so than he needs an OC to positively correct his mistakes. The days of the complete "Dick" drill sargent OC are over in todays NFL.

In related news, I'm going to consult my kids to decide what they'll eat for dinner from now on.

Apparently we'll be having ice cream sandwiches and fruit loops most nights.


Hey, I've got to have them involved in the decision, right?

If by "execute" you mean throwing the ball off the back foot,toss'n balls into triple coverage and trying to break the laws of physics by attempting to throw a ball through a defender...

Do you rely on your kids right now for the financial success of your family?

Your analogy sucks.
