>>With Marshall, Cutler Back Together, Bears Aim High

Jay Cutler wasn't quite sure what the results will be this time around. The last time he and Brandon Marshall were together, they were impressive.

Now the quarterback and Pro Bowl receiver are reunited in Chicago after forming an explosive tandem in Denver, and the Bears are eyeing a big run, starting with the season opener against Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.

A major reason for that involves Cutler and Marshall. How much better can they be this time?

Cutler isn't sure. He credited former Broncos coach Mike Shanahan and assistant Jeremy Bates for being "very good about putting us in situations for us to be successful."

The Bears believe they're in a good spot, particularly after acquiring Marshall from Miami.
