Bears' Jay Cutler calls out his own offensive line

Hopes are high in Chicago for the Bears, with many predicting a playoff berth now that Brandon Marshall has re-united with Jay Cutler.

But Cutler threw some cold water on the building optimism in a radio interview.

"The people in the Bears building are sometimes a little bit sensitive," Cutler told "The Waddle & Silvy Show" on WMVP-AM on Friday. "You always want to be pro-Bears and compliment your teammates and stuff but ... over a three-year career here (the offensive line is) definitely at the forefront of my mind every year. Until we get those front five hammered down, we're still kind of up in the air offensively -- even though we've got some really, really talented guys on the outside."

No team has allowed more sacks than the Bears over the past two seasons. And Cutler himself has been sacked 110 times in three seasons in the Windy City.

Chicago lacks a strong left tackle and has little depth at guard.

Cutler said he spoke to center Roberto Garza about the interview, and that Garza wasn't offended.

"He agreed with me," Cutler said. "(I) didn't throw anyone under the bus, didn't name anybody specifically and say that they are a weak link. I just said until we get that front five we'll see what happens."

The Bears' win total ranges from 8.5 to 9 at various books.

Im on the hook for the Bears 18 to 1 to win the NFC championship. If everyone put worth a career year type effort then this team is great.

Jay Cutler is a stiff. He's a soft quarterback who would get hurt if he lived at the Mayo Clinic. He gets sacked so often because he's one of the slowest qb's I've ever seen. He's got amazingly slow feet and he holds the ball way too long which is the main reason he gets sacked so much. He can't read defenses. When he does decide to throw the ball, his release is slow as well. He's a below average NFL qb and the Bears are one of the best one team total bets of the year to go under their posted win total.

Getting sacked 110 times in three seasons? The stats speak, and so does Cuttler, calling out his OL is justified, 3 of the 5 starters are weak, da Bears need to make changes up front (a key issue) if they even want to consider a 10 win season..
