Bears Coach John Fox “Done With” Jay Cutler?

It has long been rumored that the Bears will be moving on from quarterback Jay Cutler after the 2016 season. According to one report, coach John Fox has been vocal about that behind the scenes. Fox told friends he was done with Cutler earlier this year, two different league sources tell Mike Mulligan of the Chicago TribuneJay Cutler/John Fox (vertical)

Of course, the Bears didn’t have the luxury of swearing off Cutler when Brian Hoyer went down with a broken left arm. Now, Cutler is back in the driver’s seat, even though the belief is still that he won’t be back next year. For what it’s worth, Fox vehemently denied Mulligan’s report when talking to reporters today, saying that it is “absolutely not true.”

In 2014, Cutler completed a career high 66% of his passes and threw 28 touchdowns (also a career high) against 18 interceptions. Last year, however, his performance fell off as the Bears had another down year.

    If he’s not, he should be. As should the entire Bears org.

    Which is worse… The haul sent to the Broncos for Cutler, or the new contract they gifted Cutler?

    Rumors are that Fox is on the hot seat. He better hope that Cutler gets him some wins.

    Good choice Foxy…too bad the Bears might “be done with you” too at the end of the season.

    John Fox should be on the first bus out of Chicago, for a head coach with NFL experience he is terrible. Coach Fox brings back memories of Abe Gibron and his immediate predecessor Marc Trestman. His teams show a lack of discipline and team spirit, attributes reflecting leadership or lack thereof. The sooner the better.
