Who has carried the Bears more this season, Jay Cutler or the defense?

I think the head coach has a lot to do with it, too, but it’s not worth it to say one is more important than the other. That’s why it’s called a
T-E-A-M. You need to have a quarterback, you need to have a running back, you need to have receivers, but the thing that has been driving the Bears has been their defense. There has been no defense in history that has been able to take turnovers and turn them into points the way they have. It’s pretty significant when you look at what their defense has been able to do.
