Ron Turner, fired as the Bears offensive coordinator after five seasons on Tuesday, said high expectations took a big toll on his quarterback Jay Cutler.
"He came into a difficult situation with the expectations as high as they were," Turner said Wednesday on the "Waddle & Silvy Show" on ESPN 1000. "As soon as he got here everybody said 'Jay Cutler is here,' and now the expectations went through the roof. I don't know if that was realistic with the issues we had on the offensive line and with the young receivers. We all knew it was going to take some time. I'm not sure anybody else did. I think there was a huge weight on his shoulders to come in and really produce at a high level."
