Martz, Cutler

By Josh Katzowitz

This might not surprise you, especially considering Jay Cutler dropped an F-bomb on former Bears offensive coordinator Mike Martz, but, according to the Chicago Tribune, Cutler met with coach Lovie Smith and said he was in favor of moving on without Martz.

Cutler apparently met with Smith to give his opinion before Smith and Martz met to officially part ways. Martz’s contract was up anyway, but considering Cutler (among others in the organization) didn’t want Martz around, it seemed unlikely Martz would return for another season.

"Obviously I would sure like to be back,” Martz said last month. “I think all of that stuff works out. This is going to be a great football team and I would like to be a part of it. We’ll just see how it works out."

Latest Coaching Rumors, News
Though Cutler had a standout season in Martz’s system, Martz, earlier in the year, didn’t seem all that concerned about keeping Cutler protected by the offensive line. In fact, Cutler was asked in September if he could survive the year, and he hoarsely said, “I don’t know. I don’t know."

Martz also didn’t make friends with Pro Bowl running back Matt Forte by using him in such an inconsistent matter that it led Forte to say he thought the Bears didn’t believe he's an elite player. And Martz didn’t come off great when he blamed backup Caleb Hanie for an interception on a play that probably shouldn’t have been called for such an inexperienced player in the first place.

Now, Smith will have to hire his third offensive coordinator in four years, and hopefully, Cutler will give his seal of approval.

Report: Cutler didn't want Martz back in Chicago

You want to say....NONE OF HIS TEAMMATES CAME OUT AGAINST HIM....NOTICE: it was only defensive teammates, because they dont play on his side of the ball or in his huddle.  This guy has been a CANCER on every team he has played for!  Did the Bears best player, by far...Matt Forte, come out and say this.....NO!  He is the EXACT JEFF GEORGE of todays NFL.  Cutler has never, and will never play as more than a .500 QB in his pathetic career.  Cutler is to the Bears as Zambrano was to the Cubs....pure CANCER and nothing but a loser!
Dude, put it to rest already. You post nothing but personal oppinion, Liek I said earlier, NO TEAm MATE has ever come out against him, EVER. How is it you call him a cancer when his team mates love playing alongside him? Cutler was 7 -- 3 when he went down, a little better than .500. Cuter > Romo all day.. Let me ask, in comparing Cutler to George...........how do you fit so much stupid in that head of yours??

So Cutie-Pie-Cutler....decided not to quit, but to blame someone else for his flaws....AGAIN.  Cutler is the biggest quitting, pansy, blaming someone else half a$$, non- winning QB in the league.  Thank god he is in a horrible city like Chicago.....make your bed, now sleep in it!

Cutler is one of the WORST, 50-50 QB's in the league, a team would be better off with 20 of the 32 QB's in league than with this garbage of a teammate....
