After two years as a backup and one on injured reserve, quarterback Jimmy Clausen is excited to make his first NFL start Sunday since 2010 when he was a rookie with the Panthers.
Several Bears players were surprised when they learned of the quarterback change, but there is great support for new QB Jimmy Clausen.
Jay Cutler said that he was "shocked at first and then disappointed" when informed he was being replaced as the Bears' starting quarterback, but he still hopes to return to the team next season.
In coach Jim Caldwell's first season at the helm, the Lions have transformed into a team that is on the brink of securing a spot in the postseason.
With their offense continuing to struggle, the Bears will start Jimmy Clausen at quarterback in place of Jay Cutler Sunday when they host the Detroit Lions at Soldier Field.
Bears assistant defensive line coach Clint Hurtt has taken his experience from college to the league in order to teach the young Chicago players in the trenches.
While rumors about his future as Bears coach continue to swirl, Marc Trestman insisted Wednesday that his sole focus remains on getting the team ready to play.
The Lions haven't won consecutive games in Chicago in more than 40 years, but if they can do so this week, they will clinch a playoff spot.
After having a successful first season together last year, Bears coach Marc Trestman acknowledged Wednesday that he's been unable to get the most of quarterback Jay Cutler in 2014.
