Bears implement radical strategy to reduce Cutler’s interceptions

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ—Chicago Bears offensive coordinator Mike Martz unveiled a new approach on Sunday aimed at reducing the damage done by interception-prone quarterback Jay Cutler. Martz’s plan called for Bears receivers to run deep routes and for the offensive line to block as little as possible, thus ensuring Cutler would be unable to throw the ball before getting sacked. The plan, which worked an astonishing nine times during the first half alone, proved to be effective and controversial. “Did Jay get the crap kicked out of him and possibly concussed? Sure,” a reflective Martz said after the game. “But he only threw one pick, so I’d say it was a success. Every time Jay holds onto the football and gets sacked is one less opportunity for him to throw a pick. And that’s the end game here, not turning the ball over.”
