Bears training camp opens two weeks from today. And QB Jay Cutler has been busy studying new offensive coordinator Mike Martz’s playbook:â†µ
“The amount of energy he brings each and every day, you can see how much he loves the game and how much he likes to challenge guys. That’s kind of why we get into this game, it’s being challenged, and to have to go out there and live up to his expectations, it’s been fun.”â†µ
As for trying to absorb Martz’s playbook, Cutler admitted, “It’s not easy. But once you really get into it and buy into it, you can kind of see it start to take shape and form, it makes it fun. You can definitely tell the guys are excited to come to work each and every day and see what Mike has put in, see what new plays, see what new adjustments he has put in. It’s ever-changing, it’s ever-evolving.”â†µ
What Cutler needs, in addition to removal of his dumb play gene, is to study up on media cliches. Those rank pretty high on the cliche-meter. If this is what we have to look forward to this fall, I’d rather see Jay shut up and just play football.â†µ
Presuming he can find his receivers.
