Cutler impressive early

Through the first 50 minutes of the Bears’ first OTA practice Wednesday, with quarterback Jay Cutler throwing several dozen passes, the football hit the ground just one time, when Rashied Davis dropped an accurate pass on an intermediate route. Most of the routes Cutler threw were with receivers working against air, but toward the end of the first session, wide receivers were working one-on-one against cornerbacks, and Cutler was flawless. His passes were different than backup quarterbacks Caleb Hanie and Brett Basanez, with all but the deep balls arriving on a line and in a hurry. The other noticeable aspect of Cutler’s passes is that the ball is fired nose down on many of the intermediate routes, which is possible only because of the velocity with which they’re thrown. The majority of Cutler’s reps were with Devin Hester and Earl Bennett at wide receiver, and for now, those two are expected to be the Bears’ starters.
