So now you call Cutler a wussie for not dong the same thing?

Child please.
everyone witnessed RGIII get injured a few weeks earlier. They couldn't even find the play where Cutler was injured in the NFC championship.

There is a difference between being injured and being hurt... that championship game may be the closest he gets to a shot at a SB and he was in pads on an exercise bike.

You NEVER see a franchise QB stay in pads on the sideline... and the reason you don't see it is because legit franchise QBs will demand to play if they are on the sidelines.

How can you compare his RG's injury to Cutler's?? T.O. tried to play with a broken leg, Gronk tried to play with half healed arm and many more names you can count. So, yes, he was a wuss that day. Everybody gets hurt. Up until this last year players with concussion possibility used to return to the games.

Eli also has two rings in which he was mentally tough enough to win in the final moments. Do you think Cutler would be able to do that? The way Eli got physically assaulted in San Francisco in that championship game at Candlestick and kept bouncing back was his finest piece of quaterbacking. Cutler was taking a spinning class on the sidelines in far more ideal conditions.

Thats why I said its more than a pouty face with Cutler... I think its pretty obvious how I feel about Cutler

Um because it was a very similar situation. The big difference of course is RGIIi was cleared by the doctors to return, a decisioin that has been bashed for a year. The decision to pull Cutler was made by the Bears medical staff. It was later revealed that Cutler had a sprained MCL, which is similar to RGIII's grade 2 knee sprain. So the Redskins were stupid for risking further injury with Griff but Cutler is a wussie for not doing the same? He tried to throw and could not, it's that simple.

Look I hate Cutler, I think he is a whiney beotch. But to call him a wuss for not going against the doctor, especially after what we saw in Washington last year, is just stupid.

RGIII is a running QB and he forced it. I am sure Cutler could have stuck it out for 30 minutes and also it would boot the morale of the team knowing that their "leader" is sacrificing and sharing the work load. The fans would have carried the team at least. By quitting he let everyone down. That's my opinion.

nope... it was stupid for the Redskins because they had Cousins who is/was a pretty good back up.

The injury may have been "similar" but it wasn't the same and Cutler was in the NFCCG. You don't get that chance too often in life as a QB. If the Bears won that game I bet the house Cutler would have played in the SB.

I read somewhere Cutler will receive the same guaranteed amount as Aaron Rodgers in their respective contracts!

Wow! Bears must have high expectations because he isn't exactly at that level yet!!!
