Jay Cutler suffered a sprained MCL in loss to Green Bay Packers

The Chicago Bears season is officially over as they were unable to get the best of the arch rival Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship game. Even though they went home earlier than they wanted to, the Bears had a successful season as a whole and have a NFC North division title to their credit along with a much improved football team moving forward.

Unfortunately, despite a very impressive season and being considered one of the better teams in the NFC Conference, the Chicago Bears and quarterback Jay Cutler have gone through a lot of criticism over this past week.

CHICAGO, IL - JANUARY 23:  Quarterback Jay Cut...

The NFC Championship game was close enough and within reach for the Bears they could’ve easily been the team to advance to Super Bowl XLV, but Jay Cutler’s knee injury seems to be dominating the headlines as many people have started to question the quarterback’s toughness.

There’s no question that football is a tough sport in which injuries are common place in almost every single game. When big bodies are colliding all game long and the goal of each player is to basically destroy their opponents physically, injuries are going to happen and happen often.

The one position on the football field that does get the most protection is without a doubt the quarterback position. Even though the quarterback has a row of players in front of them to protect him all game long, the quarterback is still going to get hit and thrown to the ground from time after time.

Usually, quarterbacks that have made it to the NFL level are pretty tough as they’ve gone through high school and collegiate level and come out on top as the best of the best at the position. Unfortunately, with the exception of maybe Brett Favre, these quarterbacks can take a beating and they sometimes appear to be made of glass as injuries run rampant.

In this NFC Championship game against the Green Bay Packers, Jay Cutler was hit and hit often, but no one thought from the look on his face that is apparent knee injury was all that serious. Well, just a day later we find out that he suffered a sprained MCL in that knee and wasn’t allowed to get back on the field.

Using a player like three-time NFL MVP Brett Favre as an example, the quarterback should always be on the football field regardless of injury, but few players have the desire that the future Hall of Famer has and therefore are subject to be judged in terms of toughness.

Until Jay Cutler becomes a Super Bowl champion or the best quarterback in the league, he will most likely not be able to shake his questionable toughness. This is unfortunate, but at the same time, this is football.
