Lovie Steps Up to Defend Cutler’s Leadership

In a Q&A with readers on the Bears’ official website, head coach Lovie Smith fielded a question about quarterback Jay Cutler’s leadership abilities, which by many fans has been thrown out like a pair of cheap skis. As expected, Lovie came to the QB’s defense.

“I think he’s been a great leader,” Smith said. “First off, guys always watch you — in the classroom, on the practice field and of course your play on game day. And they like what they’ve seen from him in that sense. Jay is a tough guy, and the quarterback of the Chicago Bears should be a tough guy. The number of hits Jay took this past season, our guys saw that he constantly got up, didn’t complain, and took responsibility for what was happening with our offense. To me, that’s a leader.”
