News Alert: Cutler Is Human

OK, so he didn't walk on water in his debut as the Bears' new quarterback. In fact, Jay Cutler was anything but a savior in his first game with the team, albeit in a preseason contest against the Bills that had little significance. Ten passes, five completions, 64 yards, one interception. Yawn. Granted, his arm looked strong on the passes he did complete and showed the proverbial poise in the pocket. But if you were expecting him to light it up from the get-go (as a lot of people probably did), well, you're going to have to wait a bit longer.
