Command Transportation, a Skokie-based freight broker, used its videoboard to post a picture of former Bears quarterback Jim McMahon on a fictional iPhone that apparently belongs to coach Marc Trestman.
The caption on the videoboard reads: “Marc, answer the phone. Your new QB is calling.”
McMahon led the Bears to victory in Super Bowl XX, but he’s not pulling the club out of its current 3-6 predicament.
Jay Cutler certainly deserves his fair share of criticism coming off a game in which he threw two interceptions and fumbled on a strip sack by Julius Peppers. Cutler finished the game with a passer rating of 68.8, his worst of the season. He has now thrown 22 interceptions in 12 career games against the Packers and owns a record of 1-11 in games against Chicago’s NFC North rival.
Cutler has committed an NFL-high 15 turnovers in nine games, leading to a total of 65 points by opponents.
