Jay Cutler has shown enough promise with his new team that the Bears rewarded him with a two-year contract extension to keep him in Chicago through the 2013 season.
Through five games this year, Cutler is ranked No. 16 in both passing yards and quarterback rating, No. 15 in completion percentage, and No. 8 in touchdown passes. More importantly, he has helped lead the Bears to a 3-2 record while, arguably, carrying the entire offense on his back due to a struggling run game ranked 27th in the league.
