It’s the first week of the NFL season, but fans are already in midseason form when it comes to complaining about the Bears.
Even before the Bears game went final Sunday afternoon, some Bears fans were already calling for the quarterback’s head. Hordes of fans took to Twitter asking the team to bench Jay Cutler.

What do the Bears have to lose???
They will NEVER win with him.
Bite the bullet and move on
Can the Bears finally bench and cut Jay Cutler aka TrashLer— Chukii (@JustChukii) September 13, 2015
For the most part, Cutler’s play was solid. However, the plays that left a lasting memory were ones Cutler would rather forget.
After leading the team down the field and inside the five yard line, Cutler and the Bears offense failed on four consecutive passing plays, turning the ball over on downs.
A defensive stop gave the Bears the ball back but was immediately negated by an ugly Cutler interception.
From the moment Packers linebacker Clay Matthews stepped in front of the pass, fans were ready to be done with Cutler.
I wish my #ChicagoBears would just bench Cutler. I mean, how many times do we have to lose games because of him?Interception be killing us.— Cook (@crookitman) September 13, 2015
With 15 games left in what appears to be a rebuilding season, there will be plenty more complaints like these.
