Cutler watch: Urlacher gets his revenge

Published8/5/2009 12:00 AM

Jay Cutler started off hot with 3 straight completions in 7-on-7: a sideline toss to Greg Olsen, a flag route to Earl Bennett and a curl underneath to Brandon Rideau. But his fourth pass was picked off by Brian Urlacher, who ran it back all the way to the end zone, about 70 yards.

The next 7-on 7 session was run from the red zone, and Cutler fired a TD to Devin Hester from 19 yards, hit Olsen on a slant, dumped it to Hester on a short crossing route and then threw incomplete to Rideau. Cutler's next pass, a toss to Olsen in the corner of the end zone, was picked off by Zack Bowman.


In 11-on-11, Cutler was 2 of 4 in his first go-round, just missing a long sideline route to Olsen, who made a nice catch but came down with one foot out of bounds. Cutler lined up at wide receiver twice in Wildcat formations. On the first, Matt Forte took the snap, faked an inside handoff to Kevin Jones and sprinted around left end. Hester took the snap in the second Wildcat, faked a handoff to Forte, rolled right and threw way in front of Rideau on a short route.
