Jay Cutler Admits Forcing Ball To Brandon Marshall

Jay Cutler has a weekly talk show for ESPN 1000, and the Bears' quarterback touched on a few subjects of interest to Bears fans. In particular, Cutler talked about getting the ball to wide receiver Brandon Marshall. When asked how often he looks to get the ball to Brandon Marshall:

A lot, probably too much. We were trying to get rolling those first couple three throws to him. The ball is just going his way. If it's one-on-one I'm going his way. I trust him. I know he's going to protect me even if it's a bad ball, he's going to make the most of it. Probably of his nine catches, four of them were just thrown in his vicinity and he comes up with it. He's a special player.

Cutler and Marshall connected nine times for 119 yards and a touchdown in Week 1. The Bears' quarterback looked Marshall's way another six times during the game. Cutler also discussed the offensive line, Bears offensive coordinator Mike Tice, audibles, and the Green Bay Packers during his weekly show.
