Cutler out for the season.

by

I was going to have a recap on the game against the Chargers. I was at the game and the Bears, albeit some stupid decisions such as a fake punt or shitty cornerback coverage on Vincent Jackson, won the game. It was a costly win as numerous reports have Jay Cutler being out for the rest of the season (Unless they make the playoffs) with a broken thumb. It just goes to show how this guy plays. He throws an interception and yet, runs his ass off to stop the other player from scoring and breaks his thumb in the process. We could be meatballs and blame Johnny Knox for slipping and thus, leading to the interception.  FUCK. SHIT. WE SUCK AGAIN!

Caleb Hanie will be the man in charge to try to get the Bears to the playoffs. I must say, it’s a better option than Todd Collins. All stupid jokes aside, Hanie is in a tough position. We all love Hanie. Right now, the Bears are in firm control for the sixth playoff spot. On Thursday, we are going to have to root for the Packers to take care of the Lions so the Bears can then have the fifth spot in terms of tiebreakers. With six games to go, the Bears realistically have to go 3-3 to clinch a playoff spot.

The Raiders barely beat a shitty Vikings team. The Chiefs aren’t all that impressive and the Broncos despite the Tebow sploogefest have had to have late miraculous comebacks the last few weeks just to win games. Those are the Bears’ next three opponents. After that are the Seahawks, Packers and Vikings. Even before the Cutler injury, the Bears were going to lose the game against the Packers anyway so the Bears have five chances to win three games. It can be done.

    In addition to my post, a lot of jerkoff writers and posters on other sites are already suggesting that the Bears sign Marc Bulger. Anyone who thinks that should not be allowed watch football ever again.

    Fro,

    As a Packer fan, I wouldn’t be too sure that the Bears will lose that game.

    Why? The Packer “defense” is horrible this year. 455 yds of total offense given up by the defense against the pathetic Bucs! That will come back to bite them as the season goes on. In some ways they remind me of the 2007 Patriots, all passing offense, no running game, and no defense.

    Unless, and until, they can show me they can run the ball, and start stopping people on 3rd down, they won’t even make the NFC Championship game.

    I actually wouldn’t mind the bears bringing in a veteran to back up Hanie. But NOT as a starter.

  4. ambrose Says:

    And if we do bring in a veteran, why not a veteran backup. Like a Charlie Batch type guy?

    erniesarmy,

    You beat me to the post. I was at Lambeau Field for the game yesterday and those are my sentiments, exactly. While the offense is high test, the defense is the Achilles heel of this team.

    I’m not going to preach “doom and gloom”, because this team is 10-0 and that’s what ultimately matters. If they don’t establish a better running game AND shore up some issues on defense, they will not win the Super Bowl again this year.

    This Thursday will be a very interesting match up and test of the defense. I can’t wait for kick-off.

    Thanks,

    I love Hanie. He’s probably the best backup–who’s never been a star or starter–in the game.
    It’s just that Cutler has a certain magic to his play.
    Not a slight to Hanie, but few QBs have that magic.
    And…..fire Jerry Angelo.

  7. Fro Dog Says:

    Ambrose,

    That’s because Charlie Batch sucks and most of the “free agent” quarterbacks are not as good of options as Hanie is. This should be interesting.

    Joe,

    I agree with you on what Cutler can do and what Hanie can’t. This is why it’s important for the Bears to get the running game going along with max protection of the line and some short passes to keep Hanie in a comfort zone. The line has played very well and despite losing both Gabe Carimi and Chris Williams for the season, it still played fine on Sunday.

  8. chucky Says:

    Fro….Guess who was wanting to talk to Marc Bulger this morning?

    Matt Speigel. It’s no wonder why I hate that fucking douche.

  9. Fro Dog Says:

    Chucky,

    Speigal is an annoying douche. Likewise for McNeil. We have both discussed from time to time how horrible the Score’s lineup has been in the last year or two. Mully and Hanley are on too early, Les Grobestein is on when we are asleep and others like Laurence Holmes are on at night.

    Another thing that makes me wonder what the hell is going is the broadcasting of NIU and Depaul games on the score. Neither of those schools have been relevant in sports such as football or basketball for many years. Why The Score continues to broadcast games for them that no one listens to anyway is beyond my imagination.

  10. SKO Says:

    Of all people, Fro is actually cautiously optimistic about this. I guess I can’t be too upset, then. Good for you, Fro.

  11. chucky Says:

    Not just DePaul or NIU Fro. Throw in the White Sox too. It REALLY pisses me off when they broadcast the Spring Training games. The Score took the Sox contracy from ESPN 1000 in 06 right after they won the World Series. What does that tell you about their management? All I can say is……..FUCK YOU MITCH ROSEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I’m not 100% sure he still works there (I think he does), he’s the one responsible for broadcasting those games, and hiring morons like McNeil and Speigel. The shitstain he leaves behind will take a long fucking time to clean up. He’s like the Moe Hendry of radio.

    It will tell us a lot, Jimmy, but that game against the Giants the next week in New York will tell us even more.

    Green Bay went into Detroit with a 10-0 record once before in 1962, and got their heads handed to them by Alex Karras and that defensive line 26-14, and it wasn’t even that close. They sacked Bart Starr 10 times!

  13. jimmyd Says:

    erniesarmy,

    I’m actually not worried about the NY Giants at all. We’ll get pressure on Eli and he will make mistakes (plenty of them I’m guessing).

    Now, on another note….this one just hit me. I’m actually a little bit disappointed that I didn’t think of it earlier. I have the solution for the Bears quarterback issue. Wait for it…..here it comes….yep, you guessed it…the drama queen is fully available. God knows that he’d love to stick it to the ole Green and Gold. Perhaps you guys should lobby to get old man Brett to come play for you in the Windy City. How would that one sit with y’all???

    Thanks,
    Jimmy D.

  14. chucky Says:

    Jimmy….I heard people suggesting that today too. Honestly, I think I’d rather just throw in the towel for this season than bring that douchebag in. I’ve had all I can stand of him. But that’s just me.

    They’re saying that maybe Cutler will be back in time for the Vikings game on January 1. That worries me some too. Will that be too soon and throw him off his game? Or perhaps screw up his thumb even worse by playing too soon? I hope I’m wrong on both those points, but it does have me concerned.

  15. Fro Dog Says:

    Sign Brett Favre? I’d rather have Todd Collins. And that says a lot.

    I am afraid Cutler’s injury is worse than what they are saying. If it’s just broken, why would he need surgery on Tuesday? I am not a doctor but he may have ligament damage as well. If it’s just broken like they say it is, he should be brought back when the playoffs start and not before unless he is fully healed and ready to go. I know bones sometimes heal quicker than expected at times but the thumb is a more sensitive injury.

    On the bright side, it could heal quickly. I am not trying to compare a broken collarbone to this but I did break mine about 11 years ago. I wore a brace over my shoulders and the doctor told me I couldn’t play sports for about a month and a half or so. I was feeling fine after two-three weeks. So you never know with these things.

  16. Joe Says:

    Fro–the line ISN’T playing better.
    All you’re seeing is max protect + Martz’s finally changing his play calling. That’s it.
    The Fox Sunday pregame a week ago spelled it out beautifully. Sure, you get more protection but you LOSE potential receivers. Even with max protect our pocket still breaks down too quickly. There is STILL no running between the tackles because we don’t have enough talent to BLOW people off the line of scrimmage.
    The Bears need: another solid first-round left tackle (to replace Webb) and a talented guard who can play either side. Webb and Lance Louis are BACKUPS at best.
    And they don’t need a veteran QB. Hanie will be fine. Unless Jerry wants to waste more money.

    After the interception (and broken thumb), I read Cutler’s lips as he was chewing out Knox. He said:

    “That CAN’T happen. That can’t EVER fucking happen. EVER. EVER!” And then Knox walked by him.

    Obviously, he was talking about the fact that Knox slipped when no one else was having trouble with their footing. Phil Simms explained it: Knox leaned into the turn before his cleats grabbed the turf. I bet Knox feels responsible for the thumb.

  17. chucky Says:

    He should.

  18. Robert Says:

    Fro hate to disagree with you but as a steeler fan i have to disagree with you about charlie batch….but he has been a damn good backup to ben the last few years

  19. Joe Says:

    What we have to do now is support Hanie.
    There’s too much bullshit in the media about who the Bears should sign as a backup.
    The answer: no one.
    If Martz gets his head out of his ass and gives Hanie the support he needs, good things will happen. Hanie stands in the pocket like a rock, throws a tight, accurate ball, and can take off like a rabbit if the blocking breaks down–and it will.
    Just throw short passes to start him off and run Forte to the outside and throw screens to him.
    Also, by not signing another QB, we give Hanie a psychological edge, as if we’re saying “You’re our guy.”
    But the Bears will blow it as usual and waste money like they did on Collins.

  20. Fro Dog Says:

    Joe,

    I think Hanie is the guy regardless if they sign another backup or not. I would be guessing that whoever they sign will only backup Hanie because they have no faith in Enderle. If that’s the case, why draft the guy?

    As we witnessed in the NFC Championship game, Hanie can at least do something even in the high pressure situations. Of course, there are the mistakes but they have a chance to win with him.

  21. chucky Says:

    Fro…..Dan Bernstein just now said that Denver has waived Kyle Orton.

    What do you think? Take a shot at him? Other teams with a worse record than the Bears would get first crack at him.

    I’m 50/50 on it. He’s a better option than some other names being thrown out there.

  22. Fro Dog Says:

    Chucky,

    The meatball in me says take him if they have a chance but only as a backup to Hanie. I would guess a very late draft pick would be needed in return. He would become a free agent if no team claims him within a week or so to my knowledge.

  23. Payton J Pickett Says:

    Signing a vet QB didn’t do the Colts much good though their not having Manning has nothing to do with their lousy defensive play.

    My worry is Martz or Smith pressuring Angelo to go get a vet because THEY lack faith in Hanie. God only knows who Angelo would get in a hurry. Marc Bulger’s name has popped up and as usual Brett Favre’s name has been floated too. A none clipboard QB vet (Todd Collins anyone) would be an invaluable backup for Hanie but the point is stick with the kid.

    I’m not worried that Cutler is out for 6 (maybe 8) weeks and Hanie being the starting QB isn’t anything to worry about either. The regular schedule should be doable for the Bears regardless of who is the QB. If they can’t win at least 3 of their next 6 games, they don’t deserve to be in the playoffs.

  24. Payton J Pickett Says:

    My sunglasses clad smiley face was supposed to be eight weeks

  25. chucky Says:

    They need another QB. If the O-line decides to go back to being shitty Hanie is gonna get killed. I’m not willing to put this team into the hands of Nathan Enderle. He’s just not ready yet. He needs to stay at third string and come in only if the Bears are up by 50 points, or play in the pre-season. Especially if they are to make a run at the playoffs. Hanie should start, I agree with that. But if he goes down to an injury there isn’t any reason to even play the remaining games. Right now, the Bears are 30th on the list to get Orton. That doesn’t sound promising, but how many teams are in need of a quarterback right now? They should at least try to get him. It’s a 2+ million dollar insurance policy, and the Bears have the money.

    I just hope I don’t hear “WE NEVER SHOULD HAVE DUMPED ORTON! TRADE CUTLER! HE FUCKING SUCKS! Bernstein mentioned it and I nearly barfed.

  26. Payton J Pickett Says:

    Do people really say that about Orton? I just thought at the time that he wasn’t the problem with the offense because he had no one except Olsen and Forte to throw to and I didn’t see how Cutler would fair better than Orton in ’09 for the same reason. I still don’t know why Angelo just let the receiving corps go. Money? Ground based offense? You bring in a QB with a strong arm to run a ground based offense? ’09 still pisses me off.

  27. chucky Says:

    They were constantly saying that when the trade happened. To this day I never understood why they liked Orton over Cutler.

SHOW DA FIRE AND PASSION, MY FRENDT!
