St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher, who is preparing this week to face the Chicago Bears, issued his support for Bears QB Jay Cutler on Wednesday. Cutler has been criticized this week for his behavior during Chicago's loss to the Green Bay Packers in Week 2.
"By the way your quarterback is pretty good, and people just need to back off of him," Fisher said. "He's a good player. You think Jim McMahon shoved anyone during a game? I've known Jay a long time, he's a good player. You guys are lucky to have him as your quarterback, and he's going to win a lot of games for you."

According to Fisher, the Tennessee Titans scouted Cutler heavily while he was coach there and came close to drafting him. Fisher also had words for Mike Ditka, who recently was critical of Rams CB Cortland Finnegan.
"I would like Coach Ditka to know if he knew Cortland Finnegan he would want Cortland to be the first guy to walk off his bus. Because he would absolutely love Cortland Finnegan."
The Rams are nine-point underdogs heading into Chicago on Sunday.
