During training camp, the Bears have something new this season: a DJ.

Coach John Fox wants to make the practices loud similar to stadium noise, and Bears quarterback Jay Cutler said all the players such as linebacker Pernell McPhee are pressuring the DJ to play their music.

Honestly, it’s white noise to me. I don’t even hear it. I have the headset on so all I hear is Adam [Gase], and he talks a lot out there at practice, Cutler said. [Gase] talks regularly. You can whisper into mine, and I have it jacked up. It’s going to come across like a megaphone. So I don’t even hear the music.

Because Cutler can’t hear the music, he doesn’t really care about what’s played, but if he had to be the DJ for the day, he would please the masses.

I think on pass plays I would probably go with Country just so the defense like ‘ah,’ and hyper down a little bite, Cutler said. Because I know Pernell [McPhee], whenever Country comes on, he doesn’t go as hard, but whenever some of his upbeat stuff comes on, he’s bopping around and you know, ‘uh oh.’

Cutler just gave the secret to calming down the Bears defense. In every stadium that the Bears visit, the DJ will play Country when Chicago is on defense.
