Jay Cutler got the old rag-doll treatment on Sunday as Gregg Williams and the New Orleans swarmed on him, pushing the Bears into dead last in sacks allowed (11). Somewhere in the mix he was literally kicked in the throat.

Given the beatdown that Cutler's been getting this year (and the year before) because of Mike Martz offensive designs, it makes sense to ask him if he think he can survive this season. Which is exactly what Mike C. Wright of ESPN Chicago did.

"I don't know," Cutler said hoarsely, when asked if he could survive. "I don't know."

Cutler was also asked about the league-high 11 sacks and whether spending most of his time at the office on his back was making him uncomfortable.

"I'm not worried about it," he said. "We're 1-1. There's still a lot of football to be played. If this continues, then obviously we're gonna have a problem. We're gonna have to address it. But I'm looking forward to this game. I know the guys are gonna bounce back, as will I."

And Cutler, who typically gets hosed any time he makes a comment in public, might not even be using "we're gonna have a problem" to mean he'll start getting mad at his offensive line.

It's entirely possible that he's talking about "a problem" as the Bears losing lots of games. Or the offensive line managing to get their starting quarterback decapitated.

Jay Cutler on surviving 2011: 'I don't know'

Tony Romo, but he played with broken ribs and a punctured lung. And? Far from a grade III meniscus tear in his knee preventing him from planting and or dropping back.

Phillip Rivers is another whiner, but he played with a torn ACL . That's factually wrong - he never continued the game after tearing the ligament.

Cutler moped on the sidelines during the NFC Championship. Also factually wrong. 

Fact: Olen Kreutz saw Cutlers knee wobbling 2 minutes into the 2nd quarter. Meaning he was playing on a noodle for a leg for almost a full quarter. Refusing to come out, he was administered a pain killer shot at halftime but was unable to plant his leg, hence ordered by team doctors to not continue playing.

Fact: 51 sacks in 3 years at Denver. 53 sacks in 1 year in Chicago. In 2008 Cutler was sacked 9 times all year - In 2010 Cutler was sacked 9 times in 1 half. I still have yet to hear an ex or current teammate say 1 bad word about him. I also have yet to hear Cutler call out a teammate despite getting his head pounded in the turf for the last 3 years. 

You can hate him all you want, that's totally fine (he doesn't care and nor should he) just get the facts straight instead of clinging on to Fox's vitriolic vomit and created storylines they continue to shove down the lowest common denominators throat on a weekly basis that's all.

And just remember while your favorite players are plugging their new rap albums by tweeting, or endorsing deodorant, soft drinks, hamburgers, TV’s, cars, shoes and trucks, Jay Cutler is doing unannounced charity work for children’s juvenile diabetes, working with the JC6 foundation and is quoted as saying “I refuse to do any endorsing of any products until I win a Super Bowl, until then I haven't earned anything.”  Yup sure sounds like a bad guy to me.

Jay Cutler on surviving 2011: 'I don't know'

Look, I'm not a Cutler fan at all but the guy is not a whimp. I have seen games where has layed it all out before. I think questioning how tough he is is foolish. His line is not good enough to run a Marzt system which is why they need to get rid of Martz, not because he can call a good game but because He doesn't have the tools for what he wants to do. He only has the QB and the RB. They don't have the line or the WR's to pull this off. The scheme just doesnt fit this team, but Lovie was put in a position to score points or get fired so he cho0se to score points at the expense of his Qb's health. This will be an issue untill one or  all these happen:

1. Da Bears get serious o-line help
2.Get rid of Martz
3. Figure out how to run the ball

Again, Marzt has given life to the offense, but this isn't a good team for his scheme. At this rate Cutler might not make it to next season, but then again he was pretty much bumper meat after that game in NY last year and he still came back to take them to the title game. You never know with the NFL.

Jay Cutler on surviving 2011: 'I don't know'

Obviously whether or not Cutler is going to survive is going to depend on whether or not his offensive line wakes up and starts playing football sometime soon.  There is no chance in hell the Bears as a team or Cutler as a qb can survive the entire season if the line plays like it has.  Eleven sacks given up in 2 games is a huge, crazy number of sacks to give up.  And it's not just sacks either.  How many other times has he gotten hit very hard but got rid of the ball?  That number is way too big as well...... things have to change or the Bears are going to be in for a looooooooooong season folks.

Jay Cutler on surviving 2011: 'I don't know'

What did Jane Culter do, he moped on the sidelines durring the NFC Championship. 'nuff said.
I do think Cutler was hurt that game. I've never been a fan of the Bears (until now, because my son-in-law is a fan, which means my 2 grandsons will be as well) but I have always liked Cutler's abilities. Maybe that's a foolish stance, because he hasn't proven himself in the NFL....... yet.
However, I remember that for years people, and I mean a LOT of people, called Elway a choker who couldn't win the big game. That all changed when he won his first Super Bowl. People said he shouldn't have retired after his second ring, but he knew what he was doing.
Get out while you're on top, because sports fans are a fickle bunch.
And to the people who don't remember all the criticism Elway received prior to his SB's, You are either too young to remember, have a selective memory, or you're a liar.

Oh yeah, back to the point: I like Cutler, and I hope he has success with the Bears.

He survived Denver by demanding a trade too.  Tongue out

I cannot stand Tony Romo, but he played with broken ribs and a punctured lung.  Phillip Rivers is another whiner, but he played with a torn ACL. What did Jane Culter do, he moped on the sidelines durring the NFC Championship. 'nuff said.
