    May have gotten the first, but leading with your throwing shoulder is not the smartest thing in the world. Now that teams know he is willing to try and run through the opponents, they will expect it and nail him.

    If I have to choose between my QB risking injury and missing the first... I chose missing the first.

    Suh will use thy a an excuse to nail him if he tries that again.

    I agree with all that but this time it was a momentum changer. It was all steelers at that point and if we dont get that 1st down I think we lose the game.

    but yeah he should not have led with the throwing shoulder. Although its nothing new for him so it shouldn't suddenly make him a target. Remember the helicopter touchdown?

    I was listening to Trestman's post game comments and I am sure there will be a conversation between one of the coaches and Cutler over this.

    I don't see this happening every week. When they showed the view from behind the play... Cutty saw Golden coming from 10+ yards beyond the point of contact. He had amble time to size up his foe. It was far from a split second decision. I'm sure Cutty will be sliding from here on out especially if its a DL or LB coming towards him.

    I see where you were going, but looking at some highlights again...Not quite Payton =P. Walter was more like helmet to the chest (squarer hit), similar impact, then trying a spin move or striving to keep balance so he can brace for the next guy. Sweetness in motion was harder to stop then "good" Jay. I had zero positive anticipation seeing the shoulders lower for impact, I was only watching to see how Cutler got up.

    Watching a QB block, or even make a tackle (assuming it wasn't a blatant error) does give you a warm fuzzy feeling to watch. I can only imagine the comments teammates make in the film room from this run. Helps that it was to move the chains, but he should have slid.

    Perfect now they expect Cutty to run they will unload as he slides and he picks up the 15 yard penalty. Do the unexpected keep them guessing got like it play the head games with the defense.

    Agreed! However, I do think that Trestman, Kromer or the QB Coach will have a little chat with him about using his throwing shoulder in plays like that in the future BUT it does give the Defense for other teams something else to prepare for.

    I don't want to see him running against the Lions next week ... at all. I don't want Cutler exposed to that group of cheap shot artists and more than absolutely necessary. If he does have to run, I hope to see a nice slide.
