The Chicago Bears plan to start Jimmy Clausen at quarterback this week over Jay Cutler, per ESPN:

Cutler has struggled this season in leading the Bears to a 5-9 record. In Monday's 31-15 loss to the New Orleans Saints, he threw two touchdowns but had three interceptions to bring his NFL-leading totals to 18 interceptions and 24 turnovers. He produced a season-low passer rating of 55.8 and generated a total QBR of 6.8, which registered as his second-worst performance of the season in that category (he had a 6.0 QBR in Week 10 against the Green Bay Packers). He also was sacked a season-high seven times against the Saints.
ESPN also reports that some of Cutlers teammates are not happy with the discipline that has been handed down from head coach Coach Marc Trestman to his coaches compared to his players:

From a pure performance standpoint, neither of the players, who requested to remain anonymous, objected to Cutler losing his starting job to Jimmy Clausen for Sunday's game versus the Detroit Lions.

But while noting that a faction of Cutler detractors exists inside Halas Hall, the general belief is the respective punishments for Cutler and Kromer are gravely inconsistent, after the Bears' offensive coordinator received "basically a slap on the wrist" for his very public indiscretions when he tearfully revealed in a team meeting on Dec. 8 that he was the anonymous source cited in a published NFL Media report highly critical of the quarterback.
The Bears have some big decisions to make in the off season regarding the Culter, the coaches, and Gerneral Manager Phil Emery.
