Jerry Angelo Critical Of Chicago Bears Quarterback Jay Cutler


Since being fired as the Chicago Bears general manager two years, Jerry Angelo has done a whole bunch of nothing.

While Angelo has not been hired by any professional or collegiate football team, the general manager has had an abundance of time to share his candid views on various football-related topics.

On Monday, Angelo shared his views on Bears quarterback Jay Cutler. The same Jay Cutler that Angelo sacrificed two first round draft picks; a third round draft pick; and a then starting quarterback in Kyle Orton for.

Essentially, Angelo suggested that Cutler can’t read defenses. A notion that would fall in line with one of the common critiques of Cutler. Cutler has been criticized in recent seasons for favoring Brandon Marshall. The defense to that critique is that Marshall serves as safety blanket for Cutler in times when his other options are not available.

Angelo appears to be off base with his comments.

Cutler demonstrated this past season that he does have a knack for coming through in the clutch. In the early games of the 2013 season, Cutler led the Bears in comeback victories against the Cincinnati Bengals and Minnesota Vikings. In two of the final three games of the season, Cutler came through in the clutch. Cutler led the Bears back from a first half deficit against the Cleveland Browns; Cutler also put the Bears in a position to win in the team’s final game of the season against the Green Bay Packers.

Angelo never made sense when making comments as the Bears general manager. That practice seems to have followed the former general manager past his time with the Bears.

    Im not a Angelo fan or supporter, but his comment about a lack of poise and locking in on A receiver is spot on.

      There are three games in where I tend to agree with Angelo. ’09 games against Green Bay and San Francisco, and game against the Eagles last season.

      I always question the idea of people saying a quarterback locks onto receivers. Isn’t that the point of go-to receivers?

    This coming from a GM that couldn’t draft an offensive player if life depended on it. He doesn’t like Cutler, that explains the lousy offensive lineman he gave Jay to work with. He and Lovie are solely responsible for Cutler being trigger happy and not trusting his line. No wonder he is still out of work, that says it all. https://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=6253187958778511703#overview
