No, this is not about cooking cows.

It’s about Chicago quarterback, Jay Cutler

I saw this article by Sean Leahy in USA TODAY

The Chicago Bears defended QB Jay Cutler on Sunday after he came under withering criticism from fans, analysts and even fellow players for having left an NFC title game loss to the Green Bay Packers with a knee injury.

Cutler exited the game, with the Bears trailing 14-0, early in the third quarter. He remained on the sidelines, spending some of the remainder of the game looking sullen in a seat on the bench and some of it standing on the sideline.

Third-stringer Caleb Hanie rallied the Bears in a game they would eventually lose 21-14, but some fans took out their frustration on Cutler by burning his jersey in the parking lots outside Soldier Field.

Fellow NFL players questioned Cutler’s toughness on Twitter during the game, and ESPN analyst and former Super Bowl-winning QB Trent Dilfer called him out after the game.

“You can play this position (QB) hurt,” Dilfer said on ESPN. “Some of us have.”

Cutler said he hurt his knee late in the second quarter and said he was unable to play effectively after trying just after halftime.

Thanks again to the USA Today for this story.
