Cool, the MCL heals on its own.

At this point the Bears medical staff would be smart to lie and say it was a tear, even if it wasnt.

I've read comments from several players suggesting you can play through a torn MCL.

Very, very true.

Who cares about Cutler though? We have a winner now.

torn MCL is not nearly as difficult as a ACL is to play through and Rivers did that..... so yeah Cutler's heart pretty much pumps kool-aid

Tebow would have played if he had to carry his leg tucked under his non throwing arm.

I'm glad Jay is gone, but I think it's silly to make a judgment on how a player could perform when injured. Orton showed a lot of "heart" playing with injured ribs against the Cardinals, but the team would have been better off if they had switched to Tebow since Orton was sucking balls.

Yeah, Orton sucked balls, buuuut, he still tried his best to play. I know people are saying Cutler tried to go back in but I never once saw him get emotional or plea with the coaches to get in.

Tebow would have thrown his leg down field, then caught his own TD pass with his toes. But he probably would have gone for two instead of attempting to kick the PAT. He's not stupid.

Agreed, my only point is sometimes it is better to let the backup play.

Cutler could have come back in if it was just his MCL, but he bruised his vag too, and that kept him out.

Doesn't matter. Chicago had a better chance with Hanie.

It better be torn. Anything that isn't serious and the fans in Chicago will hate him.

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...cutler-mounts/



* Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew wrote, “All I’m saying is that he can finish the game on a hurt knee… I played the whole season on one.”

* Former NFL lineman and current ESPN analyst Mark Schlereth wrote, “As a guy how had 20 knee surgeries you’d have to drag me out on a stretcher to Leave a championship game!”

* Cardinals defensive lineman Darnell Dockett wrote, “If I’m on chicago team jay cutler has to wait till me and the team shower get dressed and leave before he comes in the locker room!”

* Jaguars linebacker Kirk Morrison wrote, “Jay Cutler better go put some Tussin on that knee and get back out there.”

* Deion Sanders wrote, “Im telling u in the playoffs u must drag me off the field. All the medicine in pro lockerooms this dude comes out! I apologize bear fans! . . . Folks i never question a players injury but i do question a players heart.

Even one of Cutler’s fellow quarterbacks, Oakland’s Bruce Gradkowski, got in on the action, writing that he once played with two torn MCLs and adding, “Is cutler still ur starter next year? Did the players give up on him?”

Oh, and in Chicago, they’re already burning Cutler jerseys.




Sounds like an interesting national story.

I was rooting for Hanie to make a fool out of Cutler with everyone else but it's a joke to say that Pack D was playing as well in the 2nd half as they did in the first. Both big plays came on blown defense - one blown tackling, one where the safety ran clean past the player and he just sidestepped a bit.

If Cutler stays in, doesn't **** the bed, and plays even mediocre then Chicago could very well have won that game. At very least Cutler would've thrown that ball hard enough that F'ing Raji wouldn't snatch it out of the air and go the other way with it.

Not when the backup gets one series and the coaching staff starts wondering "WTF did I do?"

Hanie probably hasn't even seen the first stringers this season if Collins was the regular #2 so the thought that even a hobbled Cutler wouldn't be better than his backups is crazy.
