When Jay Cutler hit the grass on Sunday, attempting to prevent his second-quarter interception from being converted into a pick-six, little did we know at that moment it was symbolic of the halting of what looked like progress for the Bears offense and the signal caller himself.
As in: he’s up one moment and then hits the turf with a thud.
Yes, six quarters of an NFL season is hardly a large sample size, but Cutler was certainly playing well. Not only was Cutler’s hamstring injury the main reason the Bears lost — let’s be honest, the Cardinals are a much better team and probably would have won anyway, but when Cutler left the game, the Bears lost all focus and intensity — but the injury also is a major setback to any progress the offense was making.
