TV microphones on the field during the Bears' win over the Vikings in Week Six picked up Jay Cutler shouting an expletive directed at Mike Martz, and both men were questioned about the issue in separate meetings with the media this week. The relationship between Cutler and Martz was already under scrutiny — Cutler has been dropping hints in press conferences that he's unhappy with the management of the offense — but the incident in the Minnesota game was a peek behind the curtain, so to speak. It has observers around the league questioning whether it was just a heat-of-the-moment burst of frustration or a sign of a more serious problem. Cutler said he was moving on and offered no apologies when asked about it Wednesday, and Martz tried to defuse the situation with humor, but it appears there has been a philosophical disagreement brewing between them for weeks. Despite the drama, Cutler is playing some of the best football of his Bears career.
