Chicago Bears deserved boos, says Jay Cutler

Jonathan Daniel

The Bears quarterback says his team deserved what they got from the fans at halftime.

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler didn't have the best first half against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. An interception, a lost fumble and six sacks helped his quarterback rating drop through the floor to 18.1 in the first 30 minutes. As the teams left the field at half time with the Panthers leading 13-7, Bears fans showed their displeasure, showering the home team with boos.

Despite the more favorable ending for the Bears and their fans, Cutler says they had the boos coming:

I’d boo us too. I told those guys it was a boo-worthy performance, if you will. It’s pathetic offensively what we put out there. It wasn’t up to standard product-wise. So we’ve got to get better. We know that, the fans know that.

To his credit, Cutler went 6 for 7 for 52 yards in a drive at the end of the game that put Bears kicker Robbie Gould in position to kick the game winning 41-yard field goal as time expired. It was the fifth straight win for the Bears who sit atop the NFC North by a game and a half over the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings. The Panthers have now dropped five straight.
