Bears QB Jay Cutler has rock-star status

Daily Herald - [Full Article]

Before ever throwing a pass for the Bears, QB Jay Cutler already has achieved rock-star status among the thousands of faithful who attended the team's fan convention Sunday at Soldier Field.
Cutler's No. 6 jersey already rivals Brian Urlacher's No. 54 and Devin Hester's No. 23 for popularity. The ovation he received upon his introduction drowned out the receptions for any other Bear. Just imagine the celebrity Cutler will enjoy if he lives up to the hype. That might be impossible, although his acquisition has energized the off-season like none in recent memory. "The energy level has been unbelievable," said Bears president and CEO Ted Phillips, "and not just with the fans, but internally, with the staff, the coaches and the players. "It's just a new energy level. I hear it from the fans now. Even as the Bulls were going through their great playoff run, the Blackhawks still are, but fans still want to talk about the Bears and what this season holds for them.
