Fine start for Cutler (pause not)

Nick Collins wipes Jay Cutler out, pretty much summing up the QB's night

Nick Collins wipes Jay Cutler out, pretty much summing up the QB's night

Welcome to Chicago, Jay Cutler. While Kyle Orton was busy establishing himself as an MVP threat with the Broncos, Cutler made his Chicago debut Sunday night against Green Bay, completing just 17-of-36 passes and tossing four interceptions in a 21-15 loss. After throwing three in a dreadful first half display, Cutler settled in before coughing up another to Al Harris on the Bears’ final drive.

I’ll give Cutler this: His receivers are brutal and Orton actually does suck, so there’s little chance of this deal not working in the Bears’ favour despite tonight’s effort. Still, I just love watching that little whiner lose. Things don’t get any easier in Week 2 for Chicago — they welcome the Steelers to Solier Field for their home opener.

Back to the game, though: The Bears made a nightmarish decision early in the fourth quarter, opting to fake punt in their own territory with a 12-10 lead in a game that had been nothing more than a battle for field position to that point. Both teams traded field goals before Aaron Rodgers hooked up with Greg Jennings for a 50-yard touchdown on third & one with just over a minute to go. Gutsy call, nice result.

So that does it for a wonderful Sunday of football. Next up, a pair blowouts on Monday night — Buffalo and New England meet at seven and San Diego and Oakland follow at 10.



  1. neither team was really impressive and as you said yourself… the man doesn’t have much to work with. The biggest loss of the game was Urlacer who seems to be out for the season aka these boys need some serious help

  2. The Urlacher loss is tough, but don’t write the Bears off yet. As much as I despise Cutler, they’ll be a much-improved offensive team, and their defense wasn’t even too strong last season anyway. Urlacher’s best days are behind him, too…
