Yesterday's NFL championship games were pretty lackluster and the abiding memory will not be a play but a decision. Bears quarterback Jay Cutler wimped out of the game and now the city of Chicago has discovered its latest native sports villain (stand down Steve Bartman). It might not be safe for Jay Culter to return to Chicago. .
Cutler was withdrawn in the biggest game of the season for a knee injury, and though he'd taken a few big hits, was not icing his knee. His body language on the sideline said he was scared, not hurt. The Bears third-string quarterback nearly led them back to tie the game, but fell short in the end, while Cutler looked on from the sideline like a chump. Other footballers started calling Cutler a wimp via Twitter and last night, Cutler jerseys were being burned across Chicagoland. Note - this is not the first time Cutler jerseys have been burned.
