Cutler – “I Don’t See Us Getting T.O.”

There’s been plenty of talk about a possible match of free agent wide receiver Terrell Owens going to the Bears. The team could use a playmaker at wide out, and despite Owens age, he is a guy that can still produce.

The guy that would be throwing to Owens is Jay Cutler, who was a guest on “Mike and Mike in the Morning” on ESPN Radio on Thursday.

Cutler says that as of right now with the way things stand, he doesn’t seem to think Owens will be coming to the Windy City anytime soon.

“You know I like T.O., I think he’s a great player and I have always been a fan of his,” Cutler said. “No one works harder than T.O. on the practice field, but with the situation we are in I don’t see us going and getting T.O. especially at this time with learning the offense and trying to fit him in.”

Cutler went on to say that as of now, he thinks the team feels good about the pass catchers on the roster and where they stand with guys like Johnny Knox, Earl Bennett, and Devin Hester.

“I’m comfortable and I think the Bears are comfortable with the receivers we got,” Cutler said. “Ultimately that’s not my decision.”

Owens has been texting and going on Twitter trying to get the attention of players and teams, but Cutler says that the always colorful wide out has not reached out to him – as of yet.

“I don’t know what T.O. is up to,” he said.

    I think it’s a moot point to discuss the Bears getting T.O. because I don’t think it’s going to happen. It is alarming, though, that they haven’t added at least one veteran. Perhaps they are comfortable with the experience of Bennett, Aromashadu and Hester to be able to execute this offense, but I would have traded a 6th rounder to Dallas to get Patrick Crayton, or to the Bucs to get one of their veterans they will be shedding like Reggie Brown or Michael Clayton. Even Javon Walker would seem to give Martz better odds of succeeding with his first Chicago incarnation of his offense.

    It seems the receivers who found the most the success in the Martz system, even after defenses began to evolve to it, weren’t very big with the exception of Roy Williams, who used less precision and savvy and more of his 235 pound, lanky frame to shield smaller corners. But, it seems, Martz expects intelligence in his receivers.

    Earl Bennett needed seven additional weeks to absorb Ron Turner’s playbook before they felt comfortable putting him out there. Devin Hester is working hard but has had issues with mental lapses and quitting on routes. Johnny Knox was worked in slowly last year, only learning the X position.

    This receiving corps taking it to corners would be exponentially good because it would allow Cutler to scramble for multiple five and ten yard gains after defenses begin to drop 7 to stop them like Martz probably wanted to see from O’Sullivan. Cutler’s superior mobility could really keep defenses on their toes. The more defenses have to respect the Bears receivers, the easier it will be to spread them out and spring formation shifts and misdirection plays on them.
