    Apparently Cutler said a week ago that there were a couple ligaments they are worried about and if injury was a high ankle sprain he would not need a walking boot.

    Reports tell the score's Matt Abatacola (never could spell his name), that he had a torn tendon in his ankle. They needed 4-6 weeks before they can evaluate if they need to do surgery or not. That means by the end of this week they will know if they need to do surgery or not.

    If they do, his season is officially over.

    FT or moving on? No way they give him a long term deal after missing 1 game, 6 games, 1 game and now now possibly 8 more games.

    This is the problem w/backups, when the starter goes down for the year, not just a few games, they are your starter...and we all agree McCown is not a capable starter.

    I really didn't think a long term deal was ever in the cards. I still think they do a one year deal either a contract or they tag him.

    For a season that started out so promising, it sure went down the toilet fast. Just when you think this season couldn't possible get worse - it does. :-(

    Season was going to be, at best, 8-10 wins. W/this many inj's I'm pretty damn happy that we won 6, and will probably win another 2-3.

    I also think he's turning into a chicken. Literally. His "ticks" are out of control.

    Well, my thoughts are:

    1) It was NOT his groin screwing his game up against the Lions
    2) If the worst case scenario happens, I hope he is had for a discount, preferably not a FT next year.
    3) We HAVE to find a QB in the draft. We need help on defense, for sure, but there's no reasonable way we can rely on a 32 year old injury prone QB next year, and a 35 year old backup to take us anywhere.

    I was thinking this morning, that I almost with we'd lost those 6 so we could get a stud draft pick. We're going to do "just good enough" to assure ourselves:

    1. No playoffs
    2. Mediocre draft pick
    3. And Tucker will probably be back with his "Tuckered Out Defense" again next year.

    Well great.

    "What if" we did not have all these injuries on Defense, and "What if" Cutler had not gone down?

    Could have been a promising season.
