Acting not Cutler's calling card
Jay Cutler appeared on Wednesday night's episode of "The League" with wife Kristin Cavallari, but he probably won't follow her into the business.
"It was good," Cutler said. "But, like I told Kristin, it's a lot of waiting around. You do your thing and then it's like three hours, just sitting around. I was like: 'This is what you do?'
"I played on the iPad, played some cards. It was fun, but I don't think I would've done it if she wouldn't have asked me. So I don't think it's something I'll be doing regularly."
Cutler admitted he didn't actually watch the episode, which was taped months earlier.
"I don't think I will watch it," he said. "Kristin watched it the other day and said it was pretty good, so I'll take her word for it."
Cutler was asked if the experience gave him more or less respect for his wife's job.
"I'm supposed to say 'more,' right?" he said.
Coach Marc Trestman hasn't gotten carried away with the 2-0 start, and insists his team hasn't either.
"We're very tempered," Trestman said. "We're not going to get caught up in the hype of what happens this early in the season. Our guys are a pretty savvy bunch. They acknowledge the fact that we have a lot of things to do to get better.
"We know, and the guys know, that there's not much difference between 2-0 and 0-2 and in our league there's a lot of very, very good football teams, one of which we're going to play on Sunday. So we've got our feet on the ground."
The Bears have a point differential of just plus-4, while the 0-2 Bucs have been outscored by a total of just 3 points, and the 0-2 Panthers are just minus-6
Wide receiver Brandon Marshall spent his early years in Pittsburgh and is looking forward to returning.
"I probably could have gotten 100 tickets," he said. "Right now I'm up to like 40 and counting. That's home. My whole family is there. We're the only ones who moved down South. But I'm excited to get back there and play in the city where I grew up cherishing the Steelers."
Marshall moved to Florida in fifth grade, but he remained a Steelers fan for a long time after that.
"I was cheering for the Steelers all the way up until I got drafted (by the Broncos)," he said. "The year I got drafted, the Broncos and the Steelers played in the AFC championship, and I remember watching that game in my dorm room with my Steelers blanket cheering for the Steelers and we went on to go to the Super Bowl. The next year I got drafted to the Broncos and I was like, 'Oh sorry guys.'"
Cornerback Charles Tillman did not practice again Thursday, although he did some individual work on the side.
Wide receiver Brandon Marshall experienced back tightness during practice and was removed as a precautionary measure. He is expected to be limited today. Guard Kyle Long (back) and tight end Martellus Bennett (shoulder) went through the full practice. For the Steelers, cornerback Cortez Allen (ankle) did not practice and linebacker Jarvis Jones (heel) was limited.
