The Bears have installed a new offense under new offensive coordinator Adam Gase, and will have similar lingo as the Denver Broncos in 2014.

Gase, the Broncos’ offensive coordinator from 2013-14, wants to run the same offense with Jay Cutler as he did with Peyton Manning.

The Bears quarterback said he has listened to Manning’s pre-snap calls from the 2014 season as he tries to learn the new offense.

With the mics on the center now, we are able to listen to games and listen to Peyton kind of call the game as you hear it on the t.v. copy so it gives you a little insight on how this offense ran and some of the calls that are made, Cutler said. With this offense, there are a lot of words. It can get wordy some times, and you’re echoing a lot of stuff that comes off the sidelines so just listening to how Peyton did it and his inflection on things. Some things he said and some things he didn’t say that’s kind of helped, in my mind and Jimmy’s mind, how this process goes.

Similar to the offense Manning ran last season, the Bears will have a lot of lingo with the pre-snap reads, but one difference is that Cutler won’t be screaming “Omaha” this season.

I will not scream ‘Omaha’, Cutler said. We have some other things going on. We are not doing a city. We have something else going on that I’m sure it will be out there rather quickly because with all the 64 mics on the field these days.

The Bears quarterbacks won’t be yelling Omaha this season, and the fans will have to wait until Thursday when the Bears play the Miami Dolphins in their first preseason game to hear what the special word is.
