Jay Cutler should not have started the game and once in, he should have be pulled. Sticking with him cost the Bears the lead in the NFL Central Division.
I got the sense that he was playing because he was on an ego trip and the head coach Marc Trestman didn't want to offend. Or something. Wiser heads have been saying all week that he should not have started.
The fact that backup quarterback Josh McCown was able to move the Bears downfield to a touchdown in the closing minutes is evidence enough that Cutler's (or the coaches') insistance that the "first string quarterback" must start because he is the "first string quarterback" was mistaken. And McDown did this without taking a practice snap the entire week before the game. Some of Cutler's passes were just awful. Could not this guy have put his ego aside for just one game for the sake of the team?
