Jay Cutler, career year in 2013.
Yes, I saw it. Of that I am certain.
OK, so I've seen purple elephants before. Trestman wasn'...

TAMPA — The man with one of the coziest gigs in professional football gets to his office at 3 a.m. every weekday.
OK, 3:30 a.m. if he is running late.

You never heard anybody at Halas Hall call Packers general manager Ted Thompson an idiot.
