Cutler Had a Painkilling Shot at Half of the NFC Title Game

Jay Cutler has been taking tons of heat since the moment he left the NFC Title Game at home vs the Packers due to a knee injury. Now some more has come out about the injury, as the Sun-Times today reports that Cutler took a painkilling shot at half to try to get back on the field.

Bears quarterback Jay Cutler received a painkiller shot at halftime of the NFC title game, a source close to the situation told the Sun-Times.

It’s believed Cutler injured his knee on the first play of the second quarter, when Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Ryan Pickett landed on his left knee, as he attempted a short pass to running back Matt Forte. Cutler headed to the locker room for halftime ahead of his teammates, and doctors and trainers confirmed their initial, on-field assessment.

The article goes on to say that Cutler got the shot to try and play in the second half, but then after the first drive of the second half went nowhere, the team made the decision to go with Todd Collins, and eventually Caleb Hanie in the eventual 21-14 loss.

    Good for Sean Jenson. He has ripped Jay in the past but did a good job of finding the truth and writing about it. Jay has been the league punching bag for the last two weeks. It is apparent that the other media members have been slanting articles and pictoral images to paint Jay in a more hedeous light. Don’t get me wrong Jay does not help himself but I respect that he is geniune and real to his teammates and coaches. He also proved two things that all detractors were so quick to accuse him of 1) he is not a winner and 2) he could not win a big game. All he did was lead the team to the NFC North Championship and also bet the Vikings on Monday Night Football to clinch the division, beat the Eagles (when they were hottest team in the league), beat the Jets (to seal the #2 seed) and beat the Seahawks for his first playoff win. During this run, the media really concentrated on how many times he almost got intercepted, how the defense/special teams carried the team, and he did not lack passion for game and feigned injury against the Pack.
