Itís 27 days until the start of the 2011 NFL season. And 27 was the average pass attempts per game last season for Bears QB Jay Cutler. Not only was that a career low for Cutler, but itís the lowest such number for a starting QB under passing guru Mike Martz, Chicagoís offensive coordinator.
Dating to 1999 and spanning three different teams, last year actually marked the first time during that period that a quarterback has averaged fewer than 30 attempts per game when Martz was the head coach or offensive coordinator.
