LAKE FOREST, Ill. -

Quarterback Jay Cutler and the Chicago Bears offense struggled enough against Carolina to elicit boos from Soldier Field fans, and receive an unpleasant review of their inconsistency a day later from coach Lovie Smith.

Cutler got sacked six times in the first half and has been sacked 11 times in two games, while the running game bogged down in the second half after a fast start Sunday against a Panthers team with one victory.

Cutler had only 80 passing yards heading into the fourth quarter before coming on to hit 12 of his last 14 passes for 106 yards.

The slow start was startling because of the emphasis the Bears placed the previous week on starting fast.

After their game in Tennessee on Sunday, only one more game is against a team currently with a losing record.
