    It did give the fire/mo back to the Bears and was needed at crucial time in the game.

    I think Cutler did the right thing in that situation. It was getting close to crunch time & we needed a 1st down bigtime. Plus it wasn't a LB who was going to knock his head off. He was bigger than the guy.

    IMHO this thing got way over blown. Cutler showed his toughness & leadership at a crucial moment in a tough game. I'm sure if that would've been # 43 about to hit him he would've slid.

    It was a dumb play on his part. Have to play much smarter. He's built like a girl. Last thing you need is your QB getting concussed over something like that.

    You keep saying he is built like a girl. But I am willing to bet he is in far better shape than you are. So, if he is built like a girl..... what are you built like?

    Furthermore.. as far as his skinny body type... what QB is built like a tank? Most of them have the same body mold as Cutler. Tall and slender without bulging muscles

    Is 6'3" 230+ really considered tall and slender, these days (I guess in America...bazing!)? There's LBs playing at that size in the NFL. He was pretty damn big when I saw him in person last season.

    Earlier in the game, Bush looked to have a TD. Twice. When Bush finally got a yard deep in the end zone, it seemed to me that the refs took their sweet time calling it a TD.

    Now, Compare this to the Steelers TD catch where the receivers knee and toe on the same leg hit the ground a pube hair away from simultaneously. The refs waited NO TIME calling that one a TD. (E. Bennett's TD catch was more clearly a TD than the one I just described. They ruled Bennetts TD incomplete.)

    Keep in mind that in order to overturn a call on the field there must be CLEAR, UNEQUIVOCAL EVEDENCE to the contrary of the call.

    I have seen QBs start to slide in the yard just past the first down marker, only to have the ball be spotted short by more than a yard on multiple occasions.

    I applaud Jays' choice to ensure that the first down was gained by a margin so great that there was no way the ball could possibly be place short of the first down.

    In retrospect, perhaps he shouldn't have led with his throwing shoulder. I do think he made the correct choice in the heat of the moment.

    I'm built like a badass and I'm very confident I have a bigger prick too. Very confident that I have better goods than anyone on this board too. And you probably have a girlish figure too.
