Jay Cutler Should Not Play Monday Night
Let’s all please stop questioning Jay Cutler‘s toughness. Ever since he didn’t play in the second half of the 2011 NFC Championship game against the Green Bay Packers, there’s been some moronic idiots that say he wussed out on his team. There is no doubt that the Chicago Bears signal caller is one of the toughest players in football, and you have to look no further than his battle with Type I Diabetes as an indicator of how much of a warrior this guy is on a weekly basis.
That being said, under absolutely no circumstances should Cutler play this upcoming Monday Night against the San Francisco 49ers. And quite frankly, he shouldn’t play until he’s good and ready. Asking Cutler to play this week is criminal (which by the way I do not think the Bears will do, I am just saying this more for the meathead fans that insist he play through this injury). He’s taken some brutal hits, but the latest one coming on a cheap shot by Houston Texans linebacker Tim Dobbins seemed to jar his head. At last count, Cutler has around six concussions in his career, and that number is frightening in itself. But more to the point, with all the research and frightening stories coming to light about how bad it gets for players that have suffered numerous concussions, it is time for Cutler and other “tough guys” to take the warnings more seriously.
While I take major issues with how NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell handles some of these violent hits (see here), at least the league is starting to have these guys privately evaluated before clearing them to play football. But when I hear a veteran coach like Mike Shanahan of the Washington Redskins call Robert Griffin III‘s concussion “mild”, it still makes me question how seriously these injuries are taken. As far as I am concerned, there is no such thing as a mild concussion. And here’s to hoping that Cutler and the Bears don’t feel the same way either.
That’s all for now. For more fun and games, follow me on Twitter @ChicagoBearJew.
