    Cutty says he will be back next week against the Lions and Suh.

    Should Cutler be given the reigns back because he is the more talented QB?, or should the Bears ride the "hot hand" with McCown?

    Is it too soon for Cutler to return from a torn groin knowing that Suh shows no mercy?

    IF Cutler is healthy enough to play, he should be playing, end of story.

    Jay Cutler, absolutely.

    All I ask of Jay is that he starts looking for the check-down more often. If he can play the ball more conservatively, we'll have a much better chance against the Lions.

    Jay needs to play ONLY if he's 100% which he is not..

    He might be playing more for a contract extension, than the teams interest.

    Sit Jay until he's really ready.

    There is no QB Controversy as far as I'm concerned.

    If Cutler is 100% then he's the starter VS the Lions. He deserves to be the starter...he's the better QB and it's his job.

    With that said, because McCown is playing so well, I don't rush Cutler. if Jay is anything less than 100% I keep him out until he's healthy so as not to risk re-injury.

    Docs said 4 to 6. I go with that timetable, not Dr. Marshall's.

    The injury may be healed enough for everyday use, but step on that football field and the next sack or scramble may just finish the job, and tear that muscle the rest of the way.

    McCown plays next week.

    I tend to believe that cutler is not fully recovered, we are back in the race and we do not need him to re injure his groin because I would like to continue to pretend that we have a chance to win it all.

    Besides, I think that Cutler can learn a little by watching.

    In position as we are at the moment i would go with Cutler, if hes certain hes ok, but if he starts slow as usual I would put Josh in the second half. You know, talking about qb preparation, this will not be pleasant for Lions, because these 2 are utterly different

    Jay Cutler, for two reasons:

    1. We need to see Cutler play as many games this year as possible, to see if Trestman has exorcised "Bad Jay" before we give him "The Big Payday" and facing that Detroit Dline is a good test for Jay.
    2. We have a good backup QB in McCown. But remember the key word is "backup" here. He doesn't give us our best chance to win. Jay does.

    McCown. He has not thrown an interception in two games. Try and ask Jay for it.
