Defending Jay Cutler? Seriously? Yes. a little.

I don't care for Jay Cutler and never did. Personality aside I felt he was overrated coming out of college and the Bears way overpaid when they traded for him. That being said questioning his injury and/or his toughness without having all the facts seems just plain wrong. Can the viewing public somehow draw some sort of magical insight into the medical status of Jay Cutler simply by watching a televised football game?

If he truly did quit on his team he deserves every last bit of criticism he'll get, but until more information on whether he was really hurt or not is released we all need to hold off on passing judgment.

Let he who has never called in sick without really being sick cast the first stone.
