Do you think Marc Trestman will replace
Raleigh, North Carolina
When asked that question by a reporter this week, coach Marc Trestman responded by saying: "We plan on [Jay Cutler] playing and playing well. Those situations come up game-by-game with anybody. But I wouldn't go near that one other than the fact that I expect Jay to play efficiently and play well and that's why he's going to be [starting]." In my opinion, I would be very surprised if Jay Cutler gets pulled for Josh McCown against the Browns for any reason other than an injury. It's clear that the Bears are committed to Cutler as their starting quarterback and aren't going to waver from that after one half or so of football even if Cutler looks rusty early in Cleveland.

I know a lot was made about the Bears practicing outside a few times last week before beating the Cowboys in frigid conditions Monday night. Did they practice outside this week too?
The Bears worked out inside the Walter Payton Center Thursday before practicing outside in the elements Friday. With the temperature in the upper 20s, coach Marc Trestman joked that it was "balmy" compared to the conditions last week at practice and for the Monday night game. The Weather Channel forecast for Cleveland on Sunday is a high of 27 degrees with winds out of the west at 17 miles per hour and a 30 percent chance of snow.
