  • Rozner: Cutler has never been more ready to go Aug 15, 2014 7:09 PM
    Bears quarterback Jay Cutler already looks dialed in, and if he could tell the truth, he'd probably like the season to start this Sunday. You can see it on the field, in the huddle, in front of the media and even the way he walks off the field. If the Bears can stay relatively healthy, they have the weapons and the line to be one of the best offensive clubs in the NFL.
