These past four weeks have been absolutely terrible if you’re an avid Jay Cutler fan like myself.
Not only has the “great one” been sidelined with a very serious and dangerous thumb injury that could have cost Cutler his life (or at least his ability to give his fiancee Kristen Cavallari thumbs up or thumbs down on potential outfits), but the Bears, while still remaining the greatest team in the NFL, have dropped four straight and will most likely miss the playoffs.

Another day of football is right around the corner, with a game that got bumped from primetime, Colts vs. Patriots, because of the lack of talent from one of the teams. Monday features a game that should have been bumped, with the 4-7 Chargers taking on the 3-8 Jaguars in a game that is sure to be anything but exciting.

Caleb Hanie completed 18 of 36 pass attempts for 254 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions in a 25-20 loss to Oakland on Sunday.
His completion percentage was 50%, while his QB rating was 56.9.
All three of his three interceptions came in the first half, luckily the Bears defense held the Raiders to only six points off those mistakes by Hanie.
