Jay Cutler has spoken out about the Chicago Bears' woes after a terrible 3-6 start to the season.
Having lost five of their first eight games before the bye week in week nine, Chicago fans hoped for a response from their team in week ten at the Green Bay Packers, but things got a whole lot worse for the storied franchise as they went down 55-14 at Lambeau Field.
Cutler spoke on Monday about what is holding the Bears back from being a solid team with a chance of making the playoffs. Before the start of the 2014 NFL season, the Bears were tipped to be a Super Bowl candidate, but Cutler admits that he and his teammates are far from where they want to be right now.
"We're all searching for answers right now," Cutler told ESPN after Sunday's loss. "As players, we need to figure this out and look inside each player and find out what's really going on inside.
"There are a lot of frustrated guys in that locker room right now and frustrated coaches. The only thing we have to do is stick together and keep working, and try to get out of this hole and get things back together."

No idea what's wrong
The worrying thing for Bears fans will be the fact that nobody amongst Chicago personnel can actually put their finger on why such a talented group of athletes are falling to live up to their lofty pre-season expectations.
Chicago head coach Marc Trestman also seems unaware at the impending doom surrounding him, and it looks like sooner or later he will be fired from his head coaching position.
"As I said, that's been the most disturbing thing that those things are not showing up in practice, and they certainly didn't last week," Trestman explained.
But like always, a deluded Trestman still believes there is hope for this bruised franchise.
"I think we've got to go back and get ready for Minnesota," Trestman said. "With that in mind, Jay's got to play better. He's got to play better, but he can't do it alone. He's got to play better just like the rest of us do."
