BOURBONNAIS, Ill. – Brandon Marshall has seen a lot of Jay Cutler, beginning with their time in Denver together. Now Marshall has seen a lot of change, so much so that Marshall is suggesting another name for his quarterback.
How ‘bout a name change?
“This is a different person,” Marshall said. “I don’t know this new guy. I don’t know this new ‘Jay Cutler.’ Maybe his new name is like, ‘Joshua’ or something, just a totally different guy. Let’s call him ‘Joshua,’ Joshua Cutler, that’s what the 'J' stands for.”
Marshall also suggested some initials for putting in front of “Joshua Cutler:” MVP.
The Bears’ Pro Bowl wideout told Hall of Fame Dallas Cowboys receiver Michael Irvin, now an analyst for NFL Network and in Bears camp for the day, that "Joshua" can achieve that honor. It would be something of a leap for a quarterback who has been voted to just one Pro Bowl, and that five years ago, and who has never had a passer rating higher than last year’s 89.2.

So, just checking here: Joshua the MVP?
“Absolutely,” Marshall declared. “With Coach Trestman and [offensive coordinator Aaron] Kromer and our offense, our offensive linemen are studs, they work together, and we have a special group at the skill positions with Matt Forte and Alshon [Jeffery] and Martellus [Bennett] and ‘Q’ [wideout Marquess Wilson] – I think, absolutely.”
