Last week the Bears made a bold move and picked up QB Jay Cutler. What they gave up is more than a few draft picks and Kyle Orton’s beard. In trading for a legitimate starting QB, the Bears got rid of a gaping hole in their offense, one that arguably dates back to the days of Red Grange. In another move, one that did not get as much ink as the Jay Cutler acquisition, the Bears beefed up their offensive line by signing pro-bowler and human pancake factory, Orlando Pace. What will these moves mean for the Bears? We asked former cornerback and current Comcast analyst Jerry Azumah to weigh in on the subject. Continue reading as Jerry Azumah speaks on Jay Cutler and Orlando Pace, as well as what their presence could mean for the Bears this season.

Jerry On Jay Cutler:
I think that is a great move for The Bears. It’s also one of the biggest and boldest moves in our generation. Jay Cutler gives the Chicago Bears pro bowl talent at quarterback. That is something that hasn’t happened in decades. I feel that instantly the Bears offense is better. Quarterback is the one thing that hasn’t been consistent or stable for the Bears in a long time and now they have it. They gave up a lot to get Cutler but it’s worth it. He has the proven talent and experience to lead this Bears unit back into the playoffs. I also feel that the offensive coordinator has to cater the offense to him. Find out how to really utilize his talents by running plays that he excels at. He has talent around him for example Forte, Olsen, Hester to name a few, not to mention a solid Offensive line to make a lot of plays.
Jerry On Orlando Pace:
Another great addition for the Chicago Bears. Pace is a proven all-world veteran lineman. I think he is going to fit in well with the offense. The offensive line has youth and veteran leadership along with proven pro bowl level talent, not to mention a great runningback in Forte. Pace will protect Cutler’s blind side at left tackle. This is what he is known for and I’m sure he will deliver.
