At some point a championship team usually needs its quarterback to win a game. Not not-lose one. Win one.
The Bears got one of those from Jay Cutler on Sunday.
Eric Weems does not long snap, hold for or kick field goals. Hes not on the field when Robbie Gould goes out for those.
The end game will overshadow the middle game but the Bears (6-1) didnt so much defeat the Carolina Panthers (1-6) as escape them.
A mantra of the Bears is their focus on cleaning some things up, whether assignments, procedures, techniques or whatever.
