Jay Cutler exits during third quarter

NFC Championship Football

Bears quarterback Jay Cutler won’t get a chance to improve upon his desultory play thus far in the NFC Championship.

Todd Collins has entered the game at quarterback midway through the third quarter Sunday with the Bears trailing 14-0.  Cutler has a knee injury and is questionable to return.

Cutler came out of the locker room after halftime, but did play in the team’s first series after intermission.  He threw an incompletion.

This could easily be a three-score game, but Aaron Rodgers threw an interception to Brian Urlacher inside the ten-yard line.  Rodgers made like Ben Roethlisberger on Urlacher’s return and was able to trip the linebacker up, possibly preventing a touchdown.

We watched Collins’ one start this year against the Panthers and he played terrible football.

Fair or not, the image of Cutler taking himself out of this game could be one he struggles to live down for a long time.

    From the QB with the worst mechanics in the league, to the QB with the weakest arm in the league.

    That guy’s a bum! Probably out late last night having one to many adult beverages.

    Wow Jay Cutler, you are as soft as they come, a “banged up knee”? What are you saving yourself for? Because with Todd Collins on the field it is a guarantee you won’t be needed in 2 weeks.

    .
    bears like honey.

    the packers heads etc look slike honey.

    Todd Collins = SB for the chubby ass Pack douchers….I have to go puke now.

  6. kom2k10 says: Jan 23, 2011 5:08 PM

    It looks like he couldn’t care less if he went back in or not…

  7. sterilizecromartie says: Jan 23, 2011 5:08 PM

    The bigger story is Urlacher getting tackled by Rodgers’ pinky. He barely touched him. That was pathetic. Should have been a pick-six.

  8. snccoach says: Jan 23, 2011 5:08 PM

    The title of this should say: “Jay Cutler quits during third quarter”

    Unless he tore his ACL/Meniscus/etc. you play until you can’t physically move any longer. It’s the NFCCG God sakes!

    Pathetic.

    knee injury is a nice way of saying he’s got a bruised cuca

  10. realdeal12 says: Jan 23, 2011 5:10 PM

    Pretty sad when you bench your qb for Todd Collins and then call it a knee injury to you starting qb.

    Bears proved nothing beating the hawks last week.

    Cutler sucks. not a GB fan either.

  11. moenthelawn82 says: Jan 23, 2011 5:11 PM

    This game just took a turn for the worse with Collins leading the way. Packers are in. Love the use of the word desultory by the way.

  12. tomnickle says: Jan 23, 2011 5:15 PM

    Anyone else the humor in Cutler hating Philip Rivers, Rivers playing with a bum knee, Cutler sitting out with one?

  13. jordangarnett says: Jan 23, 2011 5:15 PM

    Is his sugar level is low as well as his heart to play the game. I’d rather have Ryan leaf as my qb atleast he has more <3 then crybaby cutler

  14. 69jaredallen69 says: Jan 23, 2011 5:15 PM

    Jay Cutler is suffering from menstrual cramps and his return is doubtful

  15. heyooooh says: Jan 23, 2011 5:15 PM

    You can tell he wants no part of this game. He should have taken himself out at the beginning of the game. The Bears need to get rid of this guy…& this is coming from a Bears fan.

  16. thehatefulnerd says: Jan 23, 2011 5:15 PM

    Ruptured hymen.

  17. vicktator says: Jan 23, 2011 5:15 PM

    its spelled quitler

  18. mimitaroo says: Jan 23, 2011 5:16 PM

    Philip Rivers played the AFCCG in 07 with a torn ACL. Roethlisberger plays with broken nose and foot. Cutler needs some balls and heart this is the biggest game of your career!

  19. skeebo80 says: Jan 23, 2011 5:16 PM

    Seriously a hurt Cutler is STILL better than Todd Collins

  20. mataug says: Jan 23, 2011 5:17 PM

    It must be so frustrating to be on the Chicago Bears defense now. I’m trying my best to stop the Packers from scoring and my offense cannot even manage a bloody first down to give me a breather.

  21. andalohameansgoodbye says: Jan 23, 2011 5:19 PM

    As a gambler, there’s no better feeling in the world than to have bet Chicago and see Todd “Ace” Collins drop back in that pocket before surgically picking apart the Packer secondary.

    So glad I took the Bears + the points.

  22. joetoronto says: Jan 23, 2011 5:20 PM

    Get Hanie in there, what the hell, why not?

  23. andalohameansgoodbye says: Jan 23, 2011 5:21 PM

    The second half of the NFC championship game is the optimal time to “give the ol’ third QB a whirl.” What on earth is a “Caleb Hayne”?

  24. lasher1650 says: Jan 23, 2011 5:24 PM

    An MRI better show that Cutler has a legitimate injury to his knee, otherwise he will never live this down in Chicago – a town that has a luke-warm relationship with Cutler already.

  25. Jack Burton says: Jan 23, 2011 5:24 PM

    Caleb Hanie at QB now, damn it’s getting bad.

  26. 69jaredallen69 says: Jan 23, 2011 5:24 PM

    Time for a vote…should Jay Cutler have his man card revoked?

  27. sundaysundaysunday says: Jan 23, 2011 5:29 PM

    Great Packers Defense…just got scored on in a drive led by a 3rd string QB!

  28. dmobey says: Jan 23, 2011 5:29 PM

    Some crack Bear’s coaching staff.

    They have their best QB cooling his heals on the bench until everyone else is put out.

  29. drumbug7 says: Jan 23, 2011 5:31 PM

    Cutler hasn’t been to the playoffs since High School. You’d think he would play until they carried him off the field to help his team win.

    Trey Wingo on ESPN.com just tweeted that we should wait until we hear the injury report before jumping to conclusions, but Cutler’s body language says it all.

  30. jhorton83 says: Jan 23, 2011 5:32 PM

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen a QB take himself out of the game like that in the playoffs. I think nearly every quarterback in the league would be fighting tooth and nail to get back on the field in a championship game. He’s clearly healthy enough to be standing on it and walking around on the sidelines. His knee better be torn and shredded, otherwise he’s never going to live this down.

  31. moneymike23 says: Jan 23, 2011 5:32 PM

    I don’t see how Bears fans could forgive Cutler for this one if they lose the game.

  32. eknirb says: Jan 23, 2011 5:36 PM

    Yeah, good use of “desultory.” Think the Bears can pull this off? Nope.

  33. ogtv says: Jan 23, 2011 5:47 PM

    makes me proud to be a fan of a crappy denver team then have to cheer on this crybaby cutlers accolades are beating the only under 500 playoff team quitting on his team when it counts

  34. help me says: Jan 23, 2011 5:58 PM

    A few days I posted Cutler had no heart for the game and I got more thumbs down than up.

    Can I finally get some thumbs up?

  35. cannotfindausername says: Jan 23, 2011 6:10 PM

    the bears have heart!

  36. dmobey says: Jan 23, 2011 6:25 PM

    Cutler stands with head phones.

    What a flipping wuss.

  37. footballbat says: Jan 23, 2011 6:39 PM

    Bears fan: remember when Jay went North and Bronco fan was sort of “oh $#!+” but also ” oh well”?

    Yeah.

    He’s all yours.

    Good luck with that.

  38. chalie16 says: Jan 23, 2011 8:39 PM

    If I were a Bears fan, I’d be pissed. If you’re knee is too hurt to go back into the Conference Championship game, then you need to be in the locker room having it looked at, not on the sidelines pouting. Looks like Chicago will be shopping for a new QB next year, Cutler’s a punk.

  39. granadafan says: Jan 23, 2011 11:18 PM

    Cutler drinks light beer

  40. fatfreegirl says: Jan 23, 2011 11:27 PM

    I am not sure what is up with Jay, he is better than this, I wonder what his motivation is??? As for my Packers yall played ok, so thank god the Bears did not show up, giving us the win…yay!!!

    I only wished it was my number 1 Packer leading the charge. 4 FOREVER!

  41. fatfreegirl says: Jan 23, 2011 11:33 PM

    Hey you forgot #4 played with a broken thumb, hes the true iron man….
