(Competitive) Day One of Jay Cutler’s reunion with WR Brandon Marshall proved to be wildly successful Sunday, as the pair combined for one TD, 8 receptions and 118 yards in Chicago’s 41-21 defeat of Indianapolis and debutante QB Andrew Luck. Cutler, whose disposition is generally under heavy scrutiny, didn’t disappoint
this lazy blogger the local media by somehow finding something to complain about. From CBS Chicago’s Andrew Hoge :
“Please, please, please let’s tone it down a little bit when we’re down in the 20,” Cutler said after the game as he delivered a message to the fans. “You’re more than welcome to yell and scream and do whatever you want to do after we score, but please, let’s go ahead and quiet the stadium down and save it for after we score. Thank you. That’s my PSA.”
After Matt Forte gained 15 yards to put the ball at the Colts’ 1-yard line in the first quarter, fans naturally cheered. But then they didn’t stop cheering. As the offense went to huddle, nearly all 11 Bears players on the field were waving their arms in a “quiet-down” motion. It didn’t work and the Bears ended up calling timeout.
