07:52 AM ET 08.05 | Mike Martz's flattery of Jay Cutler continues. To hear the new Bears offensive coordinator tell it, Cutler is well on his way to mastering the new offense, which challenges the quarterback to throw to spots more. "What we do really fits him," Martz said. "He has that Kurt Warner awareness, if you will. He has such a keen sense of where everybody is at. He can see everything and can diagnose it without even thinking about it. We keep trying to challenge him with a lot of new things," Martz said. "Try to keep pressing the envelope. Then when we get back into the season, we'll come back and zero in each week." ... Is Cutler struggling with anything? "Not really. Not really. His retention and everything is better than I thought it would be. There's just nothing I would say that we have to go back and fix. His footwork took a little bit longer, but he's got that down."

Cutler has a knack for throwing to spots where there's no receiver, so this offense is right up his alley.

Mike Martz is dillusional.

Maybe if they used 7 receivers...

I was going with that but to the tune that at least he throws to someone, even if it is not his team.

This is just a sad thing to do to Bears fans. Get their hopes up before the beginning of the season to watch it all come crumbling down.

Nothing to work on? How about "nothing to work with?"

August 5, 2010  08:31 AM ET

Like last year was such a roaring success for him? There should be a cruise ship full of stuff to work on.

The Bears philosophy under Martz: If it's broke, don't try to fix it.

maybe they should go out and hire Joe the Plumber because this team is going to have leaks all over the place.

How about those 27 INTERCEPTIONS last season. Can't blame them all on the past offense. martz and his gimmick offense have floundered since the glory days in St. Louis and it will most likely disappoint the people of Chicago.

He could compare Cutler to any QB in the NFL and there would still be no comparison, the reason being is that most every QB in this league has at least ONE receiver to throw to that ISN'T the team's starting TE. Unless Martz can pull a miracle out of his ****, I expect that Cutler's numbers will be something close to what they were last year.

They have to get better just to stay the third best team in their own Division. And that is not going to keep Lovie's job.
