Now, all Jay Cutler has to do is deliver.
After all the hype and hoopla surrounding his arrival in Chicago, the Pro Bowl quarterback is ready for the Bears' opener after an offseason that seemed like a blur.
As if the spotlight on him wasn't bright enough already, the first game is a prime-time matchup at rival Green Bay.
Of course, Cutler's been center stage the entire offseason.
There was the firing of coach Mike Shanahan in Denver, then the meltdown with new coach Josh McDaniels over the pursuit of Matt Cassel and, ultimately, the big trade. Now, he's the focus of the optimism in Chicago, where the Bears are coming off back-to-back playoff misses since their run to the Super Bowl.
