After a second consecutive loss on Sunday, Bears quarterback Jay Cutler took to the radio to remind fans that the team is actually still in a good position.
The Chicago Bears have struggled badly over the past two weeks, but that reality doesn't have starting quarterback Jay Cutler panicked yet, as Scott Krinch of CSN Chicago writes. The Bears are still tied for first place in the NFC North with a 7-3 record entering Week 12.
"It is still one game and we don't need to hit the panic button or have DEFCON 5," Cutler said on a Chicago radio show Monday morning. "It's one game, there's a lot of football left to play and we're still in the drivers seat. We're in a good position and we just got to fix it."
Considering that many Bears fans are already near panic mode after Sunday's 32-7 blowout defeat at the hands of the San Francisco 49ers, Cutler seems determined to get his team back in the right direction. The 29-year-old missed the loss against San Francisco with a concussion, but he could return to face the Minnesota Vikings this week.
Over nine games this season, Cutler has completed 59 percent of his passes for 1,814 yards with 12 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
