    Cutler's injuries are just always so damn weird/freakish. The broken thumb on an INT return (which knocked him out forever), a torn groin muscle on a fairly innocuous sack/tackle, the mondo bizarro injury in the NFC title game against GB. I think that is what most fans find so frustrating/alarming at this point.

    That same excuse has been used by MANY when discussing each of Chad Pennington's arm injuries. Look it up, those were some bizarre injuries that seemed like a freak accident. Whatever it is, it's a sign that this player doesn't have what it takes to complete many 16 seasons. When you consider that Chad Pennington has 3 complete seasons, as many as Cutler (The only reason Chad Pennington didn't start every game in 2002, was because Testaverde started the first four games), so it's not really something you can disagree with at this point. If Chad Pennington = The Injured Quarterback, then Jay Cutler is right there with him.

    Henri, I am not disputing anything you have typed. I am on the verge of "being over Jay." With that having been said, I still want you to CHANGE YOU DAMN AVATAR!!!!!!!!!!!

    I've had a few surgeries and broken bones and could never throw a football good enough to be an NFL quarterback. OMG, I'm Chad Pennington too.

    Being a lifetime Bears fan, I didn't directly follow Chad Pennington's career, but FWIW, I've thought he was one heck of a good QB. He played 11 seasons, passing for over 17,000 yards. He is the all-time leader, in the history of the NFL, in completion percentage. That's one hell of a record considering he was the best of all QB's spanning over 90 seasons of NFL football! That totally blows my mind.

    He was the runner-up NFL League MVP in in '08 (Peyton Manning beat him out). He has a LIFETIME qb rating in the 90's.

    He has a slew of NFL awards over those 11 years. The guy, for years, has been a total class-act off the field too, with charity work that has benefited a lot of needy people in some of the poorest areas of our nation.

    I've never been a Jets fan, but I've always had a lot of admiration (on and off the field) for Chad Pennington. He was a gutsy guy coming back from some tough injuries too.
