Garza Returns to Right Guard
Bears quarterback Jay Cutler said developing the timing with his receivers is ongoing.
“I think it’s always going to be a process, not only for me, but also for the receivers,” he said. “They’ve got to be at the right spot at the right depth at the right time against the right coverage. There’s a lot of variables involved and it’s a process.
We’re still going through it.”
The receivers and quarterback not being in rhythm with the scheme is not an excuse for the terrible decision-making which led to four game-murdering interceptions against the Redskins. I simply don’t accept this nonsense that Cutler needs to haphazardly throw the ball to a particular space because Martz’ play-of-the-moment calls for it. Throw the football away. Throw the football to a back in the flat. Use your legs and take off. I understand the system is difficult to comprehend, I do. But no more throwing the ball to a spot on the field because, hey, a guy is scheduled to be there. If a friend of mine is scheduled to land at JFK at 1:45 pm, and I’m picking him up, I don’t just show up at the terminal at 1:45 pm. I check the flight status because I know sometimes, and often times, things change. I just hope the Bears, at some point this season, will do the same.
