Got a text from Sutter late last night, and it was the worst kind.
"Did you hear about Cutler?" it said.
I do the "Did you hear about..." thing all the time because it freaks people out.
It means something horrible happened.
So this text message filled me with dread, I got online and SON OF A BITCH HE BROKE HIS THUMB!
We were working late, but I did get to catch about the last 8 minutes.
I saw the horrible interception Jay threw.
I saw him get mad and give the good effort to make the tackle.
I saw him play some more, but I also saw Caleb Hanie in there at the end.
But no way did I think Cutler broke his thumb.
So anyway, not to bring you down more than you already are, but the Bears are probably kinda hosed.
And now, don't you wish that during EVEN ONE of the games that were really over one way or the other (Bears winning or losing big), that old Lovie might have put young Hanie in for mop up so, you know, he could take a snap or two in a real game besides the NFC Championship?
You never know though, right?
I mean, no way I'm gonna stop watching.
Sure, we're gonna hear this quote throughout the rest of the year: "We're gonna stack up on Forte and make Hanie beat us with the pass."
But what the hell?
Maybe Hanie wins a couple.
Maybe Jay's back for the "Whoop Green Bay on Christmas Day" game.
You hear about Milton Bradley?
No matter what you thought, it was terrible wasn't it?
I have no idea what that guy's doing.
Just funnin' with ya.
