SHARE Bill Cowher: Bears’ QB Jay Cutler has to ‘change his ways’

Former Pittsburgh Steelers coach and CBS analyst Bill Cowher said Jay Cutler is going to have to ”change his ways” or the Bears will have to consider changing quarterbacks next season if the Bears don’t make the playoffs.

Responding to host James Brown’s assessment on ”The NFL Today”on Sunday that Cutler ”displayed questionable demeanor as the leader of the team,” Cowher said, ”I think it’s a problem.

”The guy’s got a strong arm. There is no question about that,” Cowher continued. ”He’s had some protection issues. I know there’s been some questionable [play] calling. But they brought players in to help this guy win a championship, and he’s going to [have to] prove to be more accountable — not sensationalize every little mistake with his antics and body language.

”He’s a good quarterback. But if he does not change his ways and this team does not go to the playoffs, they have to consider changing. He has to change.”

Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Marino, also an analyst on ”The NFL Today,” echoed those sentiments.

”You have to lead by example,” Marino said. ”He has a great arm, but it’s nt just all about … throwing a fastball. You’ve got to learn to play the position.”
