    Difference is...

    With the groin injury, everyone knew exactly what the issue was.

    With the knee injury, no one knew exactly what was happening until after the game. They questioned him because he was standing on the sidelines.

    If Cutty say out another game, no one would have said one word.

    Then again, with all the shit D-Rose went through last year after being medically cleared.... you may have a point

    big diff between DRose and Cutler on medically cleared is that Rose stayed out for 70+ games, Cutler would have stayed out 1 or 2, tops.

    True. But you know how fans are. Medically cleared means they should play

    judging from this board, talk radio, message boards, the media, etc., THE VAST MAJORITY OF FANS WANTED CUTLER TO CONTINUE TO REST HIS GROIN. Come on folks, let's not compare apples (Jay mysteriously leaving an NFC title game against the hated Pack) to oranges (Jay simply sitting out the full 4-week time rehab frame which the team had already committed itself to) here. The vast majority of fans would have been THRILLED to have McCown start the game against the Lions; given how he had performed the previous two weeks AND considering the fact that everyone knew Jay's torn groin wasn't even close to being 100%. Come on, let's be honest here. Comparing Cutler sitting out against the Lions, 3 weeks after tearing his groin and with a MORE than capable/successful backup waiting in the wings, is NOTHING like his mysterious, exercise bike riding disappearance against the PACK in the 2011 NFC title game OR D-Rose's refusal to play a single second last season. Sorry folks, but it had to be said. Let's get real.

    Maybe he had athletes foot in his groin (can't be pleasant).

    His groin was hurting. He can say what he wants. Probably rolled his ankle too.

    Most people I talked to at work last week DID NOT want Cutler to play at all. He should have waited for the Baltimore game.

    I'm talking about when he was playing the Lions game, if he just sat down in the second quarter, people would call him a quitter. Yeah, if he never suited up I don't think anyone would have cared because our expectations were that he was not going to be back for 4 to 6 weeks.
