Some residents of Santa Claus, Indiana got together and made this video for Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler.
Nice touch, Santa Claus. GO BEARS!!
Someone needs to tell Strahan that the Bears don't throw it downfield as much as he thinks. And seriously -- why is this guy continually all over my TV? What's the appeal? I don't get it.

Chicago Bears superman Devin Hester sets the all-time NFL record for touchdown returns. And he does it on the same night the Bears win the division, and when the Corey Wootton smashes Brett Favre out of the game. What a night, what a game!
Brandon Marshall received a taunting penalty, likely overplayed his "injury" and showed off his alligator arms last night. He also was flagged for an illegal block and dropped 2 very catchable passes. He ended up in street clothes after his 'injury' and did not speak to reporters after the game. He was bested on his own team by 4th round pick Brian Hartline, who had 5 catches for 70 yards. Marshall caught 3 balls for 41 yards and has just 1 touchdown on the season. Marshall probably didn't like the repeated pounding the Bears' defense was giving to him and left the game. Tell me -- who pulls or re-aggravates a hamstring injury and then gets in street clothes for the rest of the game? Marshall is a talent, but he came off last night as a big baby, and one that isn't that tough either. It's a long pattern for him now. photo credit: Chris Sweda, Chicago Tribune
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler's interesting remarks about DeAngelo Hall at a post-game press conference.
Is this Cutler trying to show leadership and confidence, or is it a sign that he still has plenty of maturity to gain as an NFL quarterback?

"Broadcast on national television...all over the f---in world!" You can't make this stuff up, folks. Chicago Bears fans thank you for the laughs!
There is some NSFW language.

If Cutler is a top-5 fantasy QB that means the Bears are going to the postseason. But with Brees, Manning, Rodgers, Rivers and Brady, it's hard to see Cutler as a top-5, at least at this point.
What do you get when you cross Harry Caray with Andy Dick? Larry Garry. Here's an episode of "Larry Garry's Hail Mary Packer News", and even though I loathe the Packers, I think this is absolutely hilarious.
Great video and the reactions of the kids is priceless. The video was taken at a park in Libertyville. "We didn't want anyone to know we were coming out. We wanted to keep the surprise for the kids.", said Scott Hagel, spokesman for the Chicago Bears. And what a surprise it was.
Hagel also said the touch football game will be used in the Bears' "One City, One Team" marketing campaign as part of a television commercial that will soon hit the air all around Chicago.

As for the Bears and Cutler, we know that next season will certainly not lack excitement.
You know when you should stop making You Tube videos? Probably when you create something like this:
This guy just blew up the Awfulmeter! New hobby needed: Stat!
Here's Cutler on a scramble against the Vikings. I love how he puts his head down and plows through Madieu Williams. Matt Forte -- are you watching?
Mmmm...pie chart of blame. I'm not sure what Bear Down Bacon means, but I like bacon and I like the Bears. I like this video he put up too. I don't agree with all of the numbers, but it's a clever way to pass out some blame for the offense woes of 2009.
I still think Cutler deserves a higher percentage of the blame based on the amount of red zone picks. Those most certainly take points off the board and that's all on him. There are other QBs that play with poor o-lines and don't throw as many picks. Cutler needs to become one of them.
These guys apparently went to the trouble of snipping the name off of a Cutler jersey, and then lighting it on fire. Not sure what they did with the rest of the jersey. Maybe one of them is still wearing it. Ten bucks says one of them has some burns from this.
The goal here is to tell me your favorite part of this music video. For me, it's definitely the two chicks trying to keep time with the alternating left/right finger snaps. It's just classic. They were concentrating so hard they didn't even really smile.
It starts with a classic Ron Burgundy-esque line about weight-lifting, with this guy's old school bench in the background and the breathing a bit heavy. He proceeds to talk about who he perceives as the crybabies in the league, a soliloquy rife with misinformation and meatball analysis. You gotta love his t-shirt too.
Hub Arkush from Pro Football Weekly and 670 the Score briefly breaks down some of the repercussions of giving up high draft picks.
While Jay Cutler's success is of utmost importance to Bears fans, it's also going to benefit children with diabetes. With each touchdown pass Cutler throws, Eli Lilly and Company will donate $1,000 to the American Diabetes Association's (ADA) "campership" fund -- roughly the cost of sending one child to a attend a week of diabetes camp. For each pass that Cutler completes during the 2009 season, they will donate an additional $100 to the "campership" fund.
Hopefully they are donating $40k in TD passes alone! If you'd like to find out more about this campaign and see more videos, just visit www.touchdownsfordiabetes.com.
Jay Cutler recently talked with Pam Oliver on the 'NFL on Fox'. Here is the interview:
They have allowed the most points (86) in the NFC North and the 3rd most in the NFC. There's only one reason Cutler shouldn't put up massive numbers on Sunday: Matt Forte. If Forte (and the O-line) can get untracked, then Cutler may not have to resort to 4th quarter heroics for the the third week in a row.
But if the Bears run game stalls again, Cutler will surely post 300+ passing yards. And as fun as it is to watch him work his craft, it's undoubtedly better to see Forte get it going this week. Either way, the Lions haven't won a road game since who knows when. So if the Bears somehow lose to Detroit at Soldier Field, it will be an extremely disappointing bye week for the entire city.
Here's the NFL Films preview of the Bears/Lions game:
Sunday against the Seahawks seems promising with all of the Seattle injuries. But we should enjoy this masterful performance by Cutler one more time. Here's the Cutler highlight package from the Steelers game. Let's hope he repeats this effort on Sunday. Hit the jump for the video...
I think the ladies will like this video. Did I just write that?
Hark! The young Broncos fan has spoken. He proclaims that it's "Burn Jay Cutler Jerseys Month", at least in Denver. The little fella reads a written statement while flaming up a Cutler #6 Broncos jersey in this video:
They took all that time to create and upload that video, they could have at least added a soundtrack to it. I'm thinking "The End" by The Doors would have been sweet.
Tip of the Hat to my guy Mike who found the video. He posted it at his site Bear Goggles On, one of the best Bears blogs out there.
He said that the fans will love you if you play hard. Will that be the case with Cutler? I think he can play hard all he wants but anything less than 10 wins and a playoff appearance and people will be all over him whether it's deserved or not.
But over at Bear Goggles, they interpreted his comments like this:
Everyone's a little rusty... = these receivers aren't that good...
Guys were in the right spots... = at least Devin Hester and Earl Bennett know the plays...
We're gettin' there... = these receivers aren't that good...
It's good to hit some of those big plays because they're hard to come by... = don't expect too much from us...
Everyone was out here 30 minutes early... = We need the practice.
I kid. I kid. As Wanny used to say, "We'll be fine" = we're not fine.
Funny stuff. I hope that wasn't what he was really thinking. Here is the video of Jay's comments from Day 1.
