jay cutler says change isn't a bad thing

As we reported earlier, in a surprising but not shocking move, the Bears fired head coach Lovie Smith after the team missed the playoffs again, but did go 10-6.  

Several Bears players were upset, with star punt return specialist Devin Hester hinting at retirement over the news.    One significant Bears players who was less upset was Mercurial quarterback Jay Cutler.

Cutler was asked about the shock of Lovie being fired, and according to the Chicago Tribune, Cutler stated “change isn’t always a bad thing.”

“I think Phil (Emery) and George (McCaskey) and everyone involved, they’re going to do whatever’s necessary, offensively, defensively, special teams wise to put a good product out there next year and make this team the best they can,” Cutler said.

Cutler was asked if he felt he let Smith down?

“Absolutely,” Cutler said. “I take a lot of pride in the way I play, and offensively, we didn’t show up in the last four years for him, and a lot of that blame’s going to be on me. As soon as I heard he was fired, there was instant regret in what we could have done and what we should have done.”

Sometimes Jay Cutler should decline to say anything.
