Kristin Cavallari: Jay Cutler is weirded out by pregnancy sex

Jay Cutler and Kristin Cavallari

Jay Cutler and wife Kristin Cavallari are expecting their second child — another boy — and Cavallari revealed a little more than we probably needed to know during a recent interview.

Cavallari, who is about seven months pregnant, says her husband gets weird about sex now that she has a huge baby bump.

“Sex is funny when you’re pregnant. Guys get weird about it,” Cavallari told Fit Pregnancy‘s April/May issue, according to People.

“I’m like, ‘Oh Jay, the baby’s kicking!’ And he’s like, not wanting to know about it.”

Cutler’s probably not the first guy to be weirded out by pregnancy sex, nor will he be the last. But come on, Jay, you gotta show the wifey love no matter what!

Let’s not forget, though, that this is the same guy who mailed an engagement ring, so maybe this shouldn’t come as a huge surprise.

Chicago Bears sign Jay Cutler to seven-year extension

Jay-Cutler-Likes-Bears-Being-Under-RadarThe Chicago Bears have signed Jay Cutler to a seven-year contract extension. Bears general manager Phil Emery announced the deal on Tuesday.

“We are very excited to have Jay for the long term,” Emery said. “He’s a demonstrated winner with the Chicago Bears. He can be a key player in terms of being the reason you win.”

Backup quarterback Josh McCown enjoyed a great deal of success this season while Cutler was out with injuries, which led many to believe that the Bears might bring the veteran back for another season and draft a quarterback to save money. Alex Marvez of FOXSports.com is reporting that Cutler’s new deal averages around $18 million for the first three seasons, so Chicago obviously felt comfortable paying him.

The Joe Flacco comparisons are already rolling in, with the common belief being that Cutler has been overpaid and is not one of the top quarterbacks in the league. The difference is Flacco won a Super Bowl, whereas Cutler really hasn’t won anything. Still, he is obviously head coach Marc Trestman’s guy.

Despite McCown’s nearly flawless play in seven games this season, Trestman immediately inserted Cutler back into the starting lineup when he returned from injury in Week 15 with the Bears still in the playoff hunt. They wound up losing their last two games of the season, but the team clearly does not feel the burden of those losses belongs on Cutler’s shoulders. Time will tell if they will come to regret it.

Brandon Marshall: There has been ‘a little chatter’ about Josh McCown vs. Jay Cutler

jay-cutlerChicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman trusts his offensive system. For evidence of that, look no further than his decision to insert Jay Cutler back into the starting lineup immediately upon his return from injury. Backup quarterback Josh McCown lit it up while Cutler was recovering, but Trestman showed loyalty to his starter.

Plenty of people have questioned Trestman’s decision, and he would be receiving even more criticism if Cutler was unable to overcome his two interceptions against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. Earlier this week, Brandon Marshall admitted that there has been some “chatter” within the Bears’ locker room over who the starting quarterback should be.

“I’m gonna be honest with you, there is a little chatter,” Marshall told Jay Mohr Sports on Fox Sports Radio. “There’s a human element side of things in the sporting world. You have a quarterback like Josh McCown playing so hot, not only playing great ball for the Bears, but he’s one of the hotter QB’s in the NFL. He was up there with Tom Brady and Peyton Manning, those few weeks he was leading us.

“So, naturally there is gonna be a little chatter, but at the end of the day we know that Jay Cutler is our QB. He’s our franchise QB…he’s our leader.”

Again, Trestman trusts his system. While it may look to some like he is trying to please Cutler, Trestman basically feels that his offense will succeed with McCown or Cutler. Thus far, he has been right. McCown has done a far better job of protecting the ball than Cutler (13 TDs and just one interception), but Trestman believes he can win with either. If some of the players disagree, Cutler will have a chance to clam their nerves against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.

Brandon Marshall: Jay Cutler is our starting quarterback, not Josh McCown

Brandon Marshall BearsJosh McCown has played well for the Chicago Bears as a replacement for the injured Jay Cutler, but Brandon Marshall says Cutler is still the team’s starting quarterback.

Marshall, who had six catches for 100 yards in the win over the Dallas Cowboys on Monday night, was a guest on ESPN’s postgame show. Host Suzy Kolber said that McCown’s 27-of-36, 348-yard, four-touchdown game will have people talking about a quarterback controversy in Chicago. Marshall stopped her before she could finish her thoughts.

“Chop it down right now!” Marshall interrupted.

“Kill it,” he said, referring to the controversy speculation.

“Jay’s our guy. Jay’s our guy,” Marshall repeated. “Jay, before the injury, he was playing his best ball ever. What we’re learning as players is it’s not about the individuals, it’s about us playing together.

“Yes, Josh is doing well. You have to give him credit — he’s playing lights out — one of the best quarterbacks playing right now. But Jay Cutler, he’s a special guy. There are some things he can do that other quarterbacks can’t. That’s the physical part. But I put Jay Cutler in any room in the NFL, and he’s the smartest guy in the room. So he brings a lot to the table.”

Cutler has always been Marshall’s guy going back to their days together in Denver, so it’s no surprise that he heavily backed his man. Cutler was having his best statistical season for the Bears across the board prior to being sidelined by an ankle injury. Even McCown said all along that he was just filling in for Cutler and not trying to take his starting job.

Though I say the job is Cutler’s when he’s back, it’s nice for the Bears to have the luxury of not having to rush Jay because McCown is playing well.

The other question with the Bears is what they plan to do with Cutler long term. Cutler will be a free agent after the season. Do they franchise tag him? Try to work out an extension? Or do they consider trading him? I think they can win a Super Bowl with him at quarterback given the weapons they’ve provided him on offense. What they need is to improve their horrific run defense.

Marc Trestman admits he should have taken Jay Cutler out earlier

jay-cutlerJay Cutler gave his Chicago Bears teammates a courageous performance on Sunday against the Detroit Lions, playing through a groin injury that was still healing and an ankle injury he suffered in the second quarter. Prior to spraining his ankle, Cutler was on the money. He completed 12 of 18 passes for 148 yards and a touchdown in the first half. The second half was an entirely different story.

Cutler threw for 102 yards and an interception in quarters three and four. He obviously wasn’t the same player, and he was replaced with backup Josh McCown with just over two minutes remaining. On Monday, head coach Marc Trestman admitted he should have made the move sooner.

“I sit back and look back, and maybe not second guess,” Trestman told WBBM 780, via ESPNChicago.com. “But I went through the tape closely this morning and watched Jay’s performance. I thought he did well into the fourth quarter. But at the end of the day, if we had to do it all over again, maybe it would be one series before the two-minute drill.”

Despite the fact that Cutler looked lost, Trestman left the decision of staying in the game or coming out in his hands. Being the competitor that he is, Cutler tried to gut it out. Once McCown replaced him and led a touchdown drive, it became obvious that the switch happened too late.

Cutler said he took himself out.

“I felt really restricted in the pocket with what I was able to do,” he explained. “[The ball] wasn’t getting out as quick. Some of my throws didn’t have as much hum as I wanted. I knew Josh was ready to go, and I just didn’t want to get to the point where I was hurting us more than I was helping us.”

What’s the old saying? Nobody likes a Monday morning quarterback? Trestman may end up regretting the way he coached, but he did what most coaches would have done with a quarterback who wanted to stay in. It backfired. Welcome to the NFL.

Jay Cutler to have MRI on groin injury; Bears to sign Jordan Palmer

Jay Cutler groin

The Chicago Bears may be preparing to be without Jay Cutler for a while.

Cutler left Sunday’s 45-41 loss at the Washington Redskins early in the second quarter with a groin injury and was replaced by backup quarterback Josh McCown. Bears coach Marc Trestman said after the game that Cutler will have an MRI on his groin Monday. NFL Network reporter Mike Silver said two sources told him that Cutler’s injury could be bad.

In response to Cutler’s injury, the Bears are preparing to bring back quarterback Jordan Palmer. The team signed Palmer in mid-August during training camp and cut him a few weeks later. ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Field Yates reported that Palmer will be re-signed. The Chicago Tribune’s Brad Biggs confirmed that Palmer will be with the team on Monday.

Palmer, a former 6th-round pick out of UTEP, has spent time with the Cincinnati Bengals and Jacksonville Jaguars organizations.

The Bears are entering a bye week, so if Palmer is coming in on Monday it’s fair to speculate the team expects to be without Cutler for some time.

Jay Cutler: DeAngelo Hall just ‘another player’

jay-cutlerChicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is more than a little bit familiar with Washington Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall. You wouldn’t know that based on Cutler’s assessment of his upcoming opponent.

On Thursday, Cutler was asked if he was looking forward to facing Hall again on Sunday. He responded by saying plenty without saying much.

“Another player,” Cutler said, per Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune.

Why is that significant? Hall is “another player” who happened to intercept four of Cutler’s passes when the Bears lost to the Redskins back in 2010. After that game, Hall said that Cutler doesn’t really understand the game of football. In 2008, when Cutler was still with the Denver Broncos, he had success throwing to Eddie Royal when Hall was covering Royal. After hooking up with Royal several times, Cutler was quick to point out that the receiver had his way with Hall.

There’s no debating that Cutler and Hall have a history, even if they choose to downplay it. When asked about Cutler’s most recent comments on Thursday, Hall took the humble approach.

“I don’t know what you want Jay to say,” he told reporters. “‘Oh my God, I’m scared of this guy!’ He’s trying to say I’m another guy. Whether he believes that in his heart or not, that’s what he has to say. He has gone against some great corners in this league. I’m probably not the best guy he ever has gone against.

“I can’t go into it thinking, ‘This is Jay Cutler.’ But for me personally, I feel good about the matchup. I feel good about the things we’re trying to do, defensively, scheme-wise.”

Neither player is going to get on their knees and worship the other guy, that’s for sure. We always say that players should do their talking on the field. That’s essentially what Cutler and Hall are doing heading into this weekend’s matchup.
