Cutler Shows Why Broncos Dealt Him/Urlacher Done For Season

A bad situation got even worse for the Chicago Bears on Sunday night when Brian Urlacher went down with an injured wrist. With a chance to take home a victory over division rival Green Bay Chicago’s new All-Pro quarterback couldn’t have gotten off to a worse start. Cutler completed 17 of his 36 pass attempts with a ratio of 4 interceptions to 1 touchdown. He mounted a comeback in the second half and put the Bears in front 15-13 but the Chicago defense gave up a 50 touchdown pass from Aaron Rogers to Greg Jennings. Trying to rally his team again for one last scoring drive Cutler tossed his fourth interception on the night. You could make the argument that ultimately it was the Chicago defense that faltered and cost Chicago the game but then again Cutler giving the ball away four times sure didn’t help matters.

Speaking of the Chicago defense, they lost more than just a game Sunday night. Linebacker Brian Urlacher dislocated his right wrist on a play in which he hit Green Bay quarterback Aaron

Rogers. Urlacher underwent surgery on Monday and was placed on injured reserve meaning that he’s done for the season. Now the Bears are looking at going into the final 15 games of the season without Urlacher once again and they’ve got a gun slinger of a quarterback who at least for now has shown that he likes to gamble on the field and can’t pay his debts.

In a strange twist of irony Cutler’s replacement in Denver and former Chicago quarterback Kyle Orton had a prayer answered when Brandon Stokley caught a tipped pass and ran 87 yards to pay dirt in the final se

conds of the game to give Denver a 12-7 win over the Cincinnati Bengals.
