Message To Cutler Nation / Put Up Or Shut Up.


Here we go again as history repeats itself, sort of. In 2010, the Green Bay Packers were a Wild Card team playing the Division Champion Bears in Chicago. What followed we will revisit at a later point in this posting. This is Year 5 in the Cutler experiment. When Cutler came aboard in 2009, he was a refreshing addition to a quarterback starved city that had not had a quarterback in more than 20 years. Today there will be no hyperbole. "Just The Facts Ma'am' As Jack Webb used to say in the T.V. series Dragnet. Let's take a look inside the numbers since 2009. And then we will take a peek at the numbers with Jay Cutler as a Bear during the playoffs.

2009. Q.B. Rat. 76.8, 27 T.D., 26 INT., 9 fumbles.

2010. Q.B Rat. 86.3, 23 T.D., 16 INT., 10 fumbles.

2011. Q.B. Rat. 85.7, 13 T.D., 7 INT., 7 fumbles

2012. Q.B. Rat. 81.3, 19 T.D. 14 INT. 8 fumbles.

2013. Q.B. Rat. 88.1 17 T.D., 11 INT. 5 fumbles.

Now we shall visit Jay Cutler's Playoff record with the Bears in 2010.

January 16th, 2010 @ home vs. Seattle Seahawks.

Bears win, 35 - 24. Jay Cutler has a superb performance! Q.B. Rat. 111.3, 2 T.D., zero INT. 1 fumble.

January 23rd, @ home vs. the eventual Superbowl Champion, Green Bay Packers. Q.B. Rat. 31.8, 0 T.D. 1 INT.,, 2 sacks and 1 fumble. Jay Cutler left the game with 9 minutes left in the 3rd quarter with a knee injury and was replaced by veteran Todd Collins. The Bears lost badly.

In Summation: So here we are again. With the survival of the Green Bay Packers season resting against the Bears @ home. 3 Years ago, Jay had a rough day and was injured. However, he did play almost 2 and a half quarters. I believe life is about 2nd chances. If Jay Cutler plays well, I will join the Jay Cutler Cult. If Jay Cutler plays like he did in 2010, I might have to get a a health alert bracelet and stop watching football.
