Cutler "doing OK" after Sunday night sack-fest

Bears quarterback Jay Cutler suffered a concussion on Sunday night in the Bears’ game against the Giants.

We’re told that he’s “doing OK” a day after the nine-sack night.

That’s irrelevant, of course, to the question of when he’ll be cleared to play again.  The NFL no longer brushes brain scramblings under the rug, and Cutler will have to pass the various doctor-imposed tests before receiving the green light.

    He’s no Kyle Orton, even when healthy.

    Jay Cutler would be great if he had an offensive line. As an ex- chicagoan I can tell you watching Orton play was painful. If he wasn’t hurt he was getting sacked and throwing interceptions. The only difference now is that he has a line to protect him. If you have 10 hours to throw the ball, I would think a sixth grader could do it with the protection he has. Bottom line put Orton in the same situation and he is ten times worse. There is no way he would have been able to take as many hits a Cutler. Take if from someone who has never missed a bears game in 30 years and who lived through the painful Orton era.

    Somewhere in Denver Josh McDaniels had a nice laugh for himself last night.

    He had his bell rung. If you look at the tapes something isn’t right after 6,7,8. 9 was just the cherry on top.

    i don’t think he was intelligent enough to pass the test BEFORE the concussion!

    “Jay Cutler would be great if he had an offensive line.”
    He had one in Denver–that ’08 version was one of the best of the last few years. And he wasn’t good then, either.
    At some point, call it like it is. Orton’s had problems, but he’s gotten better every year. Cutler hasn’t.

    Sorry Tonia, there have been too many excuses made for this guy for too long.
    That thing you hear quacking is indeed a duck, if you know what I mean.

    All hating aside, to say the Bears O-line played like shit, would be a compliment to them.
    The complete lack of effort was absolutely classless and unprofessional, other than Kreutz, they should all be shot.

    QB’s in Mike Martz offense are an endangered species. The man is both brilliant and stubborn. Never any half time adjustments, why should there be, his game plan was perfect.

    Orton has 10 hours to throw the ball? Orton has a line to protect him? Have you seen any of the Denver games?
    From the Denver Post: “Right now, Orton is as valuable to his team as any player in the league. The Broncos can hang in the playoff race so long as he remains standing. “We were under siege maybe a little bit,” said Orton, who pulled out a 26-20 victory Sunday against Tennessee, despite being sacked six times. If Orton had been knocked down once more while leading the Broncos on scoring drives, the NFL’s new rules on head injuries would have required he be painted yellow and black, in accordance with National Highway Traffic Safety Administration guidelines for a crash-test dummy”
    Orton IS in the same situation and is doing quite well. I’ll admit Orton WAS painful to watch when he was with the Bears. But he has improved tremendously and continues to do so. As Rosenthal said earlier:
    “Orton has the second most passing yards through four weeks in NFL history. Yep.”
    Even if Denver had traded Cutler for Orton straight up, Denver still got the better end of that deal.

    Talk about getting your head handed to you. He also had his ass removed and fed to him.

    After further review, Chicago’s doctors discovered Cutler didn’t have a concussion after all. He’s just stupid. Same symptoms, different diagnosis.

    Who cares. The Bears suck! It looked like an NFL defense vs. Pop Warner.

    “Even if Denver had traded Cutler for Orton straight up, Denver still got the better end of that deal.”
    Every GM in the league would take Cutler over Orton if they had a choice between the two. Besides maybe the Broncos. Remember they did get a “pass rusher” with zero sacks and a third-string qb who ran the option in college out of the deal. Quite a steal there.

    Cutler is stupid……….Yea ok patpatriot and dirtdawg thats why the kid has a degree from Vanderbilt. Anyone who makes comments like that probably isn’t smart enough to see their own ignorance. Why do you guys hate him so much? Why do you spend some much time and energy bashing the guy, you must have nothing better to do. On paper Cutler is a very good QB, he gambles and makes poor decisions when under pressure, thats his style. There are very few QB’s in play today that could throw the ball on the move and as far as he can. If you don’t like him that don’t pay attention to him and leave it alone. It’s getting old now, move the F on!!!!

    I’m getting tired of Bears fans who make excuses for Cutler all the time. This man is NOT and NEVER will be a franchise quarterback in all phases of the game. He does not have the heart of Brett Favre or any other successful ginslinger. He’s a mirage!!!!! He will be great for one or two games and then he’ll revert to form. He does have a great arm but if you think thats all that a quarterback needs to be successful is then you’ve just demonstrated why your franchise is largely unsuccesful.
    Did you ever consider that your OLine doesn’t protect him because they’re sick and tired of his crybaby ways?
