All week the Chicago Bears have stood publicly behind the decision to start Jay Cutler against the Cleveland Browns instead of Josh McCown, but privately that is not the case.

One Bears player told ESPN's Bob Holtzman that Cutler threw a number of interceptions in practice this week and that it's been weeks since McCown -- who leads the NFL in QBR -- has thrown any. The player said with each mistake Cutler made the defense grew more and more frustrated.
