Bears GM Phil Emery defends QB Jay Cutler

Posted: Updated:
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (Associated Press) -

Chicago Bears general manager Phil Emery defended Jay Cutler as a franchise quarterback today, calling Cutler "a passionate player."

Emery insisted he believes in his quarterback. He pointed out that Bears are 9-1 in Cutler's last 10 starts, including a 4-1 mark this year that has them tied with Minnesota for the division lead heading into their off week. The Bears have climbed into the early lead in the NFC North.

The statements were the first from Emery to reporters since the beginning of the season. It's his first year as general manager.

Emery also shrugged off recent sideline incidents with left tackle J'Marcus Webb and offensive coordinator Mike Tice.
