When bringing up the title game against Green Bay, Caleb Hanie and the Bears defense should be mentioned, opposed to Cutler and his injury
Jay Cutler and Caleb Hanie are close friends. So dismiss the notion that an injured Jay wasn’t pulling for Caleb on the sidelines this past January against the Packers in the NFC Championship game. He wanted his team to win. Make no bones about it.
Here’s what the gunslinger who wears #6 for the Bears had to say recently to the Chicago Sun Times about the game, his injury, and the critics:
“To get to the point we were and the opportunity we had — I’m frustrated just like everyone else. But there’s nothing we can do about it now. We have to learn from it and overcome it this year.”
Concerning the undeserved criticism: “I was gone, and I stayed away from it all. But I can’t say it didn’t bother me that people questioned my toughness and desire to play.”
“I think I’ve been through a lot here in Chicago, and I would have loved to play.”
“Those are the guys you are with a lot of the time, and those guys didn’t flinch. I’ve got to thank them for that.”
As for the haters: “They can think what they want.”
Spoken like a true competitor. I’m extremely proud of the fact that Jay Cutler is the starting QB for my Chicago Bears. Who’s side are you on Bears fans?
