07:47 AM ET 08.12 | While it may drive Bears fans batty, Jay Cutler is merely stating what comes with the territory of a Mike Martz offense. Cutler knows that a local newspaper is charting his practice interceptions as a running gag. He also knows that he's going to have a hard time reducing his interceptions in a Mike Martz offense. "I'm going to throw some this year. I'm not going to lie about that. There are going to be some balls that are picked off. It's part of the game. But we can't worry about it," Cutler said on ESPN Radio in Chicago, probably with one of his shrugs that drives sportswriters crazy.

No way! Really?

Yes Jay... you sure are... and it is part of the game.

Especially yours!

"...probably with one of his shrugs that drives sportswriters crazy."

Ah, yes, the legendary 'Cutler touch', both with the football and with sports writers. I wonder if he reminded everyone that he would throw those interceptions with more velocity than John Elway ever had when he threw interceptions.

At least he warned us.

August 12, 2010  08:06 AM ET

"Culter"?

LOL

Be truthful, did you really need the warning? The only change is now he feels he can blame the coaching staff rather than the receivers.

Some does not indicate if he will throw more picks than completions to his own team.

Or this year he could blame both, perhaps?

Clearly they've never heard of spellcheck.

I'd almost rather have a Favre tweet than this. So what?

Yeah, he'll be picked off by "Rievs" from yesterday's bad-spelling thread.

"[Cutler] knows that a local newspaper is charting his practice interceptions as a running gag."

Maybe that's because the last two years of his career have been a running gag.

Caption on the pic above - "dude, do you need some frickin' glasses, my momma can make better throws than that!"

No argument there.

Good one.

Martz looks like he's going to backhand him.

Farther down in the article there's this gem of a quote from the Boy Wonder: "That's part of this offense. It's not a read and see what happens and let it fly, it's a read and let it fly. So balls are going to be in the air."

He gives himself too much credit. The offense he's used in the past consists only of "let it fly".
