The criticism has stemmed from him allegedly "quitting" during the NFC Championship Game even though he strained his MCL.
Cutler going down in the game could be blamed due to the lack of a talented offensive line that he had to play with for the past two years. Even though it's anchored by six-time pro bowler, Olin Kreutz, the rest of the gang hasn't protected their quarterback properly.
In essence, Cutler stands alone for the entire Chicago Bear's offense. One could argue that Matt Forte, Kreutz and even Greg Olsen are right behind Jay in ranking the top offensive players for Chicago.
With an offense that lacks a true No. 1 receiver and a protective O-line, it's shocking to see that Chicago made it all the way to the NFC Championship Game. It's their defense that has helped the Bears win in the past.
The entrance of Cutler has only made it better.
But one could think: "If the guys upstairs bolster the Windy City's offense this offseason, will next season be their most successful yet?"
