General Manager Phil Emery said that reports about the organization having different say in whether he should or should not be given the position were true. He added that it was nice to see all the Bears team as one when they won against the Cleveland Browns 38-31 and acted as one unit during the match.
 
Fox NFL insider Jay Glazer said that he had talked with many people within the franchise and most of them did not want Cutler to be the starting quarterback.
 
“I’ve talked to several people on several different levels inside of the Bears, and not one of them agreed with this decision at this point in time,” he said.
 
On Monday Emery was interviewed on the WSCR-AM 670 and was questioned “What was your perception of Glazer’s report and how much accuracy did you observe?”
 
He did not say that the reports were false but said that they were true and people did have different opinions on the subject within the franchise. But he said that Cutler was a good fit and he had shown that when he came back for the match against the Cleveland Browns after four weeks out due to sprained ankle and played well. Initially he struggled when he threw two interceptions but them he gained momentum and started getting used to his shoes. He then played well and threw for three touchdowns.
 
Emery said that the team was jubilant after the victory in the locker room and they acted as one team which was a wonderful thing to see.
 
“The thing that I observed is that locker room after that victory,” Emery said. “It was a tremendous feeling. I saw players — offense, defense, special teams — come together, hug one another, celebrate a team win, and definitely they’re very supportive for one another.
