Real simple. Vote, discuss
Melton is out for the year and all he did was plant a foot in the ground. Jay busted a dude in his chops and took the game back with that hit. You can't stop injuries but you can play afraid. I'm happy to see that Jay is able to play football without being scared of something you can't really control.
We risk losing our starting QB vs. possibly losing one game. Not a very good risk/reward value.
After replaying the play on the DVR and listening to Cutler on his ESPN1000 show, he was well beyond the first down when he hit the guy and did not know he was (based on his comments on Monday). He should run when he sees an opportunity to gain yards but needs to be more aware of his situation and make better decisions.
Option 5: Loved it, thanks to the flying spaghetti monster for him not getting injured. Want to see more of that confidence out of him.
That would fit option 4
We risk losing our starting QB every time he drops back. It seems that most season ending injuries are to the knees anyway. A good portion of those are non contact injuries (see Melton) (see Jay in the Packers game). Say Jay does slide there and dude drops a shoulder into him. I have no problem with Jay or anyone on the team being the hitter in that situation. I've seen Jay slide plenty of times. I'll trust his judgment
I don't like your options, Benji. Plus I'm a hardcore rebel when it comes to message board polls.
and we all know the FSM is in control of this and he deserves praise.
Basically... Sorry, but I'm not sorry that Jay is sorry he's not sorry.
But those risks are unavoidable. I suspect a QB's risk of getting piled on during a slide are significantly lower than what can happen in the pocket during a pass play.
I voted option #2... while watching the game I loved it b/c it was a much needed momentum changer. While watching the replay though, I think Cutty could have started to slide after obtaining the first down. The point of impact was two yards past the first down marker. The risk (of injury) outweighs the reward here especially since the thought of McCown starting scares me the $hit out of me.
