Jay Cutler supports Jets QB Mark Sanchez

From the play of right tackle Gabe Carimi to footwork in the pocket to parental lessons, Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, as always, addressed a number of subjects Monday during his weekly radio show, which is part of “The Waddle & Silvy Show” on WMVP-AM.

A day after the Bears’ 41-3 shellacking of the Jacksonville Jaguars and with “Monday Night Football” just hours away, subjects also included the New York Jets’ quarterback controversy. The Jets host the Houston Texans, arguably the most complete team in the NFL, on Monday night.

Cutler said the Jets’ best chance to win is with Mark Sanchez and not Tim Tebow.

“They drafted him to play quarterback. Let him play quarterback,” Cutler said during his show. “I think one of the biggest mistakes you can make is not support your starting quarterback because as soon as there is a little doubt there in his mind — he’s already got enough pressure on him — and you add a little bit more, you’re asking for more.”
