After last season’s underwhelming performance, Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has a hard time finding many supporters in Chicago.
He does have one big one, though. And, it’s a guy who’s paid to protect him.
Bears guard Matt Slauson, who sat out most of last season with a torn pectoral, gave Cutler about as good an endorsement as he could ever receive.
Appearing Saturday on WGN-radio’s “The Beat,” Slauson was asked by Adam Hoge if he sees Cutler back with the team this season.
“Absolutely,” Slauson said. “I have every confidence in him—his ability, his intelligence. The guy can be the best in the league. We just have to do a better job supporting him.
“We didn’t do a very good job of that last year. But, Jay can be every bit of a Tom Brady, a Peyton Manning, an Aaron Rodgers. He can be them, if not more.”
