I have a hard time believing that any professional at the pinnacle of his career, would just quit. I have to believe that he was really hurt. His team was only down 14-0, a guy couldnt possibly quit right then could he?

Define "hurt". You mean hurt enough to make a candy a$$ desk jockey like me take a half day off to see a doc in the box? Probably. Hurt enough for an NFL Player - a QB - to sit out the 2nd half of a conference Championship game? We'll have to wait to what the MRI says.

Alls I know is a few years ago Phillip Rivers played in a playoff game with one of his knees held together by medical tape, gauze wrap, Cortizone injections and the team doctor's bubblegum. That's a football player.

Jay Cutler's always been a bit of a ding-dong. Great arm, sure, but his poor mechanics, boneheaded plays, and immaturity outshine anything positive he does on the field. The kid hasn't been a consistent winner since high school yet he walks around acting like he's better than John Elway and Brett Favre.

After the game today, Jimmy Johnson basically said Cutler needs to grow up. I couldn't agree more. He's this generation's Jeff George.

Alot of folks is questioning his toughness. It didn't matter though, he needed to go to the bench and the Bears third string QB played better than Cutler in that game.

agreed...i can't imagine Cutler would willingly sit out the 2nd half of a Conference Championship game. i also think it's pretty low to make assumptions about his will power to play hurt. we'll have to wait and see what the MRI says, but even then, i don't think that's a necessity.

i just hope he didn't take a hammer to it last night after the game just to make sure the MRI comes up positive!

I saw Jay Cutler get smoked by blind sided hits and guys with clear paths enough times this year to last me a lifetime. He bounced back after all of those, I really doubt he "quit" on his team in this game. I am not against taking shots at Cutler either, as he is pretty clearly not the most likable guy in the world, but this AMs talk radio and national coverage is sensationalism and a bunch of crap.

Hanie looks like the Bears QB of the future - not Cutler.

I'm not sure we'll ever know if he really was hurt or not. The puzzling thing to me is that if your knee is THAT hurt that you can't play, how are you able to stand on it and walk around the sideline??

Standing and walking vs cutting and running for your life from 300 lb lineman are two totally different issues.

I tore ligaments in my ankle so bad that my ankle was the size of my calf. I could still walk and stand, but run and cut. C'mon dude. As much as Cutler was crushed this year ( led the league in sacks ) no one should question this kids toughness.

Well, you do have a point and that may very well be the case. But I have had several knee injuries while playing soccer in college and I could not put any weight on it! I don't know man, trying not to be judgy since he's the only one who will ever know 100% but it's hard for me to imagine being able to put weight on a bad knee, if it was really that bad.
