    Shit happens during a game and not everything is going to be executed the way we like. Welcome to football hits are inevitable and decisions have to be made in split second and less. Some work out the way you want others can become train wrecks that's the risk of the game. If you don't like the unavoidable violence you can always watch golf.

    He acknowledged that he would have slid if he hadn't been unsure of the 1st down line. In the game against the Vikings, he slid and came up short even though the thought he had the 1st down. He needed to make sure. Plus he stated that he's comfortable with the contact especially when he initiated it..

    Risk is unavoidable in football. How many times have you seen a QB slide and still get drilled? The rules say you can't but it happens anyway. I'd rather Cutler be the one giving the hit on that play than sliding and being drilled on his way down. Nothing bad happened on that play. In fact it was the play that set the tone for the rest of the game. I like watching guys play like it matters. If he slid and came up short and we lose everyone is complaining that he's a puss. Now that he didn't and we won some are saying he should have slid. Oh well, can't please everyone lol

    I understand we don't want Cutler injured. But it's football and I like to see a guy who plays the game with passion. If all you want is a "game manager" then get a loser QB who doesn't give a crap, except for his own health.

    As one poster said earlier today. What the heck do you guys want out of Cutler? If he plays it safe he get's criticized. If he doesn't play it safe he gets criticized. I definitely understand his attitude at this point. He just wants to win. And he's going to do anything and everything to win games. If players get hurt, well, that's pretty much football.

    As Mike Ditka used to say "It ain't tiddly winks"

    Well, according to M. Bennett there were several players who didn't like his play either

    I understand both sides of this coin. The meatball old school footballer in me liked it, but the grey matter up in the old cranium thinks he should slide. Who's right? A move like that helps him add credibility with his team mates whether we want to admit it or not, so somewhere down the line that may pay dividends with Jay developing as the undisputed leader of the team. If he gets hurt, then our season is over and that sucks. then again, I really don't want a Quarterback to just be a Quarterback, I want him to be a football player, and what Jay did is what football players do. However, most football players don't wear QB shoulder pads.

    There is no right answer here, so let the guy play his game.

    We are making a big deal out of nothing. I don't think we will see this again.

    Do it if it is the 4th quarter of the Superbowl, but not game #3. Risk/reward calculation. Unfortunately, Jay takes risks with the ball and his body. That's who he is.
