Cutler downplays incident with Tice

The Chicago Bears’ offense appears to be back in sync, even if the same might not be true of quarterback Jay Cutler and his offensive coordinator. Cutler (pictured right) played one of his most impressive games as an NFL quarterback Monday night in beating the Dallas Cowboys 34-18, connecting on 18 of 24 passes for 275 yards and two touchdowns. Cutler at one point sat down on the bench after he’d obviously been irritated by confusion on the field regarding a play call the previous series. When offensive coordinator Mike Tice sat down next to him and began talking, Cutler stood up and walked away. “I don’t have to sit by him the whole game, do I?” Cutler said afterward. Then he accused media members of trying to sell newspapers. – Associated Press
