Wizard of Id (1/24/11)

Chicago was in an uproar yesterday over Bears quarterback Jay Cutler having sat out much of the second half of his team’s loss to the Green Bay Packers. With a trip to the Super Bowl on the line, Cutler sulked on the sidelines while his replacement (and then his replacement’s replacement) led the Bears’ offense. Turns out he injured his knee, and while die-hard fans (and even some rival players who took to Twitter to share their pearls of wisdom) insisted he was being soft, I’m not sure that’s completely fair. “Go back out there!” people exclaimed. “Football is a physical sport!” Actually, football is a violent sport, which is why I can only stomach it in small doses. If Cutler’s knee was shot, there’s no way he should have gone back out on the field.
