What specifically did #Bears coach Marc Trestman say about Jay Cutler when asked if he was a franchise quarterback?
“Jay Cutler is a guy who loves football,” Trestman said when I asked him if he viewed the veteran as a franchise quarterback. “Jay Cutler is a guy who is willing to learn. Jay Cutler to me in my very short time with him wants to do everything he can to help this franchise and please our amazing fans. That’s where we are going to start. We’re going to work one day at a time in a proactive way with a sense of urgency to get him to be the guy he wants to be and we want him to be.”
In the next question, Trestman was asked about Cutler’s often analyzed mechanics.
“We’re going to go to work as soon as we leave here on multiple levels with Phil and our personnel, but part of the calendar is getting together with Jay, taking it play by play throughout the season, evaluating his performance in different ways, on a macro level and on a micro level,” he said. “The big things he does that he wants to improve on, that we want him to improve on, and the micro level, from taking a snap to dropping back and throwing the football and everything in between. It’s a meticulous process. So that’s the way we are going to start. Whether it was an 8-year-old starting football or a 20-year-old who played eight or 10 years in the Natinal Football League. I had a 41-year-old quarterback this year. Every first day of training camp, it’s, ‘This is a football.’ The fundamentals and techniques are the most important thing to help our team win. The quarterback has a big job. He has to protect the ball. He has to live for the next play. He does it a number of different ways. At the snap, in the running game, in the confines of the pocket, locating the ball and outside the pocket. There are fundamentals and skill and techniques you have to have to do that. We’re going to start at day one in trying to get that done.”
