Bears | Hutchinson Improving on Release, Footwork

K.C. Johnson, of the Chicago Tribune, reports Chicago Bears QB Chad Hutchinson was 1-4 as a starter last year, and was knocked because of his slow release and tendency to take too many sacks. Hutchinson has said he has improved on those aspects through game experience and off-season work on his footwork. "In our system, the most important thing is making quick decisions and getting rid of the ball," said Bears offensive coordinator Ron Turner. "I say it all the time: 'I want the ball out of your hand. If it's out of your hand and complete for a 3-yard gain, that's fine.' I'd rather have the ball in someone's hand running with it than in the quarterback's hand. Chad's gotten better at that."
