“We say it every year how talented Jay is, how much talent he has,” Urlacher told The Kap and Haugh Show. “But the NFL is not a talent contest. It’s a winning contest. You want to win football games, that’s what it comes down to.
“If your quarterback can’t make plays in certain situations for you to win games, he’s not getting the job done.”
With $54 million guaranteed, Cutler undoubtedly is being paid to get the job done.
“Financially, he is one of the elite guys in the NFL,” Urlacher said. “You look at his contract, he was paid like an elite quarterback. . . . He just hasn’t produced like an elite quarterback. You look at the Bradys, the Mannings, the Rodgerses, the Breeses. Those guys win every year. Even with no one around them. [Aaron] Rodgers has no offensive line, he wins. [Tom] Brady has no receivers, he wins.
“You look at Jay, he’s got Brandon [Marshall], Alshon [Jeffery], Matt [Forte] and a great offensive line, Martellus Bennett and they can’t seem to put it together for some reason. I’m not sure if it’s his fault, but for some reason they can’t seem to figure it out.”
