LAKE FOREST, Ill. - Chicago Bears coach Marc Trestman remained firm in his support of quarterback Jay Cutler on Monday. Not so much for defensive co-ordinator Mel Tucker.Trestman dismissed a report that the Bears considered benching Cutler during last months win over Tampa Bay.Jay Cutler as long as hes been healthy has been the guy weve had in there and wanted to play, Trestman said. Theres been no (indecision) there whatsoever.And, he insisted: As long as Jay is healthy, hell be playing quarterback for us.Even though his completion percentage and passer rating are career highs, Cutlers play is one of the sore spots for fans of the scuffling Bears. He ranks second in the NFL with 15 interceptions and has lost six fumbles after signing a seven-year contract.The Bears (5-8), meanwhile, will miss the playoffs for the seventh time in eight years, certainly not what they envisioned when the season began. They expected to make a playoff run. Instead, they are playing out the string, with New Orleans visiting next Monday night.I think (Cutler) has a very good understanding of how we feel about him, Trestman said. Theres a lot of noise out there. Were all aware of that. You get away for a few days, you know how much noise there is out there because youre not working 24/7. But, were here to do one thing. Today we worked to get better and when we get back here on Wednesday, were going to do everything we can to get ready for New Orleans.As for another report that Tucker will be gone at the end of the season? Trestman would not confirm or deny a decision has been reached.All were trying to do here is to get our football team in a position that we can be better on Monday night, Trestman said. The focus inside this building is exactly that and has always been exactly that week to week. Thats all thats been important to all of us here.If Tucker is let go, that would hardly be a surprise given the way the defence has struggled in his two years. Then again, the same could be said about Trestman and even general manager Phil Emery.For now, Trestman is taking a more narrow focus.Were here to try to get our football team better, he said. You focus on whats important and whats really important is helping these guys to be in a better position that Monday night they can go out and play good football.He said the Bears are playing everybody.All the young guys are playing, theyre playing in different roles, theyre playing special teams. Were moving people in and out in various roles on the back end, at the second level up front, particularly defence, where theres a lot of young players, Trestman said. So, thats not going to change.Marquess Wilson could play a bigger role, with Brandon Marshall out for the rest of the season. The Bears star receiver is out of the hospital after breaking two ribs and sustaining a lung injury in Thursdays loss to the Dallas Cowboys.I think hes off and running, Trestman said. He knows and knew how he would be targeted as we got him involved and certainly thatll grow certainly this week with Brandon out.NOTES: Trestman said the Bears will have a better idea on K Robbie Goulds status later in the week after he sat out the Dallas game with a right quadriceps injury. ... TE Martellus Bennett said he would love to continue playing for Trestman. I love Coach Trestman and I love his approach to the game, he said. But ultimately, I have no say-so in (whether Trestman will be retained).___Online:AP NFL website: and Nathaniel Phillips Jersey .C. United on Saturday night and boost the Unions playoff hopes.

Gonzalez participated in his final game on Sunday, Atlantas 21-20 defeat at the hands of the NFC South champion Carolina Panthers, having posted four catches for 46 yards. CHICAGO -- The Chicago White Sox jumped ahead, and the Detroit Tigers came right back. Jose Abreu had a big two-run homer for the White Sox, and Victor Martinez responded with one of his own for the AL Central leaders. Adam Eaton loved every minute of it. Eaton had a key run-scoring single in the sixth inning, and the White Sox snapped a three-game losing streak with a 6-5 victory over the Tigers on Monday night. "South Siders, were grinders," said Eaton, acquired from Arizona in a three-team December trade. "Were going to try to do the little things right and grind games out. I think that was as close to a boxing match as you can get. "Grinding it out, and I wouldnt have a baseball game any other way. I think thats how its supposed to be played." Gordon Beckham had three hits and Conor Gillaspie drove in two runs as Chicago bounced back from a sluggish trip to Southern California. The White Sox took two of three from the Dodgers before getting swept in a weekend series against the Angels. Martinez, Miguel Cabrera and Eugenio Suarez connected for Detroit, which has dropped seven of nine. Cabrera went 2 for 4 while serving as the designated hitter after leaving Sunday nights 5-3 loss to Boston with left hamstring tightness. "I feel better than yesterday," Cabrera said. "In the last couple innings, it was tightening. But hopefully I can come back tomorrow in the field and get loose again." Martinezs two-run shot off Hector Noesi (2-4) trimmed Chicagos lead to 5-4 in the sixth. But the White Sox got a big run in the bottom half on Eatons single and held on to win the opener of a nine-game homestand. Ronald Belisario worked a shaky ninth for his sixth save. "We had so many people contribute in so many different ways," Gillaspie said. Alex Avila hit an RBI double off Belisario before the right-hander retired Suarez on a deep fly to centre. Pinch-runner Rajai Davis advanced to third on the play, but Belisario struck out Ian Kinsler and got pinch-hitter Torii Hunter to ground to third for the final out. Rick Porcello (8-4) struggled through five-plus inninngs for Detroit, allowing six runs and nine hits.dddddddddddd He also committed a costly throwing error that set up Eatons run-scoring hit. "I just couldnt find any consistency in executing pitches," Porcello said. "I mean, we face these guys a lot. They know what youre going to do, and when youre not on point, on your game, theyre going to get all over it." Porcello was 9-1 with a 2.35 ERA in his previous 12 starts against the White Sox. The 25-year-old right-hander went 3-0 with a 1.64 ERA in three starts at U.S. Cellular Field last season. Noesi was charged with four runs and seven hits over 5 2-3 innings in his second straight win. The right-hander, claimed off waivers from Texas in April, pitched six solid innings against the Dodgers in his previous start. "Hes giving us a chance to win," manager Robin Ventura said. "He has been great. The changeup for him has really been a factor that has got him to this point." The White Sox scored three times in the fifth to take a 5-2 lead. Gillaspie drove in Beckham with his second RBI single and Abreu followed with a drive to centre for his 18th homer. Abreu had two hits after he went 1 for 12 in the sweep by the Angels. Cabrera watched for a brief moment as his one-out drive in the fourth sailed over the wall in left for his 12th homer. J.D. Martinez then singled with two down, but Gillaspie robbed Nick Castellanos of extra bases with a leaping grab at third for the final out. Suarez went deep in the fifth, tying it at 2. It was his second homer in his fourth major league game since he was promoted from Triple-A Toledo on Wednesday. NOTES: Victor Martinez has 15 homers and 15 strikeouts this season. ... White Sox GM Rick Hahn said the team has a "positive history" with agent Scott Boras and thinks they will be able to work together again when it comes to top draft pick Carlos Rodon. The White Sox grabbed the left-hander with the No. 3 overall selection Thursday night. The deadline for signing most amateur draft picks is July 18. ... Tigers RHP Justin Verlander (6-5, 4.19 ERA) faces LHP John Danks (4-5, 4.32) on Tuesday night. ' ' '
