Chicago Bears: Marcus Mariota v. Jay Cutler

Jay Cutler is the definition of a tease. He will show glimpses of his elite potential like in week 2 of the 2014 season for example.

His numbers weren’t gaudy, he only threw for 176 yards, but he threw four...

So if not them, then who? All signs indicate that...
