    So I just heard that Pouncey announced that he should be ready to go for Sunday's superbowl. If he plays in this game, what do you think people are going to say about Cutler? Will it crush his reputation more than it has already been crushed for sitting out in the divisional game?

    Pouncey left the game on crutches and was said to be on them all week. I feel like if this guy plays in the superbowl, people will really hate Cutler for what he did. To me, you can't judge what happened simply because people heal differently and take to pain differently.

    But will fans care? People will argue that Pouncy's injury looked alot worse hence him on crutches. He couldn't walk on his injury but Cutler could.

    Yes there will people stupid enough to compare the injuries of different players with no real knowledge of either situation.

    Agree. The mediots will definitely harp on this for sure.

    maybe cutler would be playing in 2 weeks, as pouncy apparently will be (although I doubt pouncey will be playing on a broken ankle). If pouncey stayed in the game with it then it would be comparable, I guess.

    If Cutler couldn't plant on his sprained tendon...then he can't be too effective. Don't think bravery or softness enters into the equation.

    Re: M. Pouncey ...Jay Cutler

    I know Cutler has gotten a lot of grief for getting hurt and not coming back in the game. My assumption is that the Bear's medical and coaching staff agreed that he was legitimately hurt and could not be effective if he had continued to play. To say he was a "wimp" is while possible, unfounded.

    I give Pouncy credit for giving it a go. High ankle sprains are brutal.

    I thought Pouncey sat out the rest of the game too?

    Re: M. Pouncey ...Jay Cutler

    Yeah but he went out with a fight. Cutler just didn't even seem to try to get into the game. And Pouncey's injury seemed way more extreme.

    Re: M. Pouncey ...Jay Cutler

    yeah but it was obvious that he was hurt, he couldn't even put weight on it. He was carried off then came back to the side lines on crutches.

    Cutler came out the game and sat there. His injury wasn't as obvious i guess, he looked fine but was said that he was un-returnable to the game. many ppl questioned this, questioned his injury and started questioning his will to play and attitude afterwards.

    I also heard that after the loss, some of the Bears went to a restaraunt to eat. Of course they reserved a private section upstairs. Cutler didnt take the elevator up, but instead took the stairs. I highly doubt Pouncy could have tackled a flight of stairs after his injury.

    Cutler's doing the damage to himself. Being seen climbing stairs and walking with little to no limp so quickly after the game is just stupid for P.R. purposes.

    I tore my ACL in college and I was able to walk on it, even up and down stairs. I couldn't play hockey because the knee had not nearly the stability to perform hockey moves on skates, but walking around, while sometimes painful and a little scary, was possible. But I had to walk with the leg almost completely straightened out; I called it "flesh peg leg".

    What you have here is ignorance proliferated by mediots pandering to a bunch of couch potatoes that probably have never played a sport competitively.

    Given that Rivers was able to play NFL QB with a torn ACL, I'd say that you're being far more unfair towards "mediots pandering to a bunch of couch potatoes..." than the media has been towards Cutler. These things aren't automatics, the way some injuries would be.

    Re: M. Pouncey ...Jay Cutler

    Yup, and a general attitude/demeanor that causes him to not get the benefit of the doubt.
    The Yahoo article that accompanied this pic appeared before the game vs Seattle. It indicated Chicago, with a reputation of wanting to love, embrace its guys, had already really rejected Cutler. This was contrasted with NY's desire to stick the thumb in the eye. So for the negativity to pop in Chigcao, is bad sign.
    He was sliding down, before the bike riding, bench riding, pout-a-thon.

    You know, what kind of a guy can passively sit an watch his team lose a Championship match?
    For that matter, any game?

    Pouncey is quite the kid, at 21 showing a balls to the wall attitude.
    That will work with any fans, but Steeler fans have to love this kids attitude.
    That is the perhaps Steeler way, if there is one?
    Hope the kid is able to get in the game.
    A little standard issue, this is just what I do heroism
    can go a long way for a team's attitude.

    In contrast to Mr Cutler, who just shows nothing.
    It may be unfair to rip him, but just show me something?
    It really appears as if he does not care. That is enough to write it in stone.
    Maybe he can cry on Oprah before it, and he, are canceled.

    I would say if there is one group that should know better than to jump to conclusions based on a person's facial expression or 'body language' then it is fans of the Patriots - though that doesn't appear to be the case here.

    They're not, but I guarantee you that Rivers' experience is the exception. He's lucky he didn't end his career.

    I knew a guy in rural Canada who walked 6km on a snowy road to get assistance after an accident...with a broken spine. I don't hold everyone to that standard, and though I'm no Cutler fan at all (I've hurled some drunkard jokes myself), people are being very unfair with him on this.
