New Bears offensive coordinator Adam Gase is well aware of Jay Cutler’s athleticism and ability to get out of the pocket, but Gase said that the frequency of designed rollouts will depend on how opposing defenses are playing the Bears.
Here’s what Gase said about rolling Cutler out of the pocket: “We all know that his athletic ability for a guy his size is pretty unique; there are not a lot of guys like him. We’ll try to do what we need to do within a game. How the defense is playing … you never know how a game is going to play out. So you have to kind of play off the defense—how are they playing the run game—and then you go off of there. But his ability to move outside the pocket, we really like what he’s done so far and we’ll keep growing that package.”
The Bears will try anything to turn around Cutler's performance from last season. Rolling out Cutler will also give his talented WRs more time to get open.
