J. Cutler (US Presswire)
Aside from an unwanted cameo on TMZ, Jay Cutler has been incognito since his postgame press conference following the NFC Championship. The Bears quarterback stayed quiet amidst the din of criticism that followed his controversial exit from the game. He stayed quiet when the team revealed that he had suffered a Grade II MCL tear, which for most players is a 2-3 week injury. And he stayed quiet when it was reported that he received a pain-killing injection at halftime of that game.

On Thursday, Cutler was quiet no more. He broke his silence in an interview with the Chicago Sun Times . (Cutler was promoting the NCO Youth & Family Services “Fun Run” in Naperville, where in nine days he’ll join 350 kindergarten age kids for a mile run; NCO’s mission is to “provide life-changing services to youth through prevention education, counseling and shelter.”)

Cutler was finally asked what he thought of the post championship game drama.

“I was gone, and I stayed away from it all,” he said. “But I can’t say it didn’t bother me that people questioned my toughness and desire to play.

“I think I’ve been through a lot here in Chicago, and I would have loved to play.”

Cutler said ultimately the opinion of his teammates is what matters most.

“Those are the guys you are with a lot of the time,” he said, “and those guys didn’t flinch. I’ve got to thank them for that.”

Cutler’s knee took about six weeks to heal on its own. He says he hasn’t fully tested it yet.

Jay Cutler...tough...good one.
Jay "The Bay Bay" Cutler isn't even mentally tough.
He is literally learning disabled, and soft.
But AFC West fans knew that well before he bowed out of that game.
Now his feelings are hurt.
World meet Jay Cutler...

Fan or no Fan, Cutler should have given it a try. Farve played with a broken thumb on his throwing hand and a broken foot during the playoffs two years ago. Now i am not a Farve fan, but you have to admire his guts. If Cutler would have put himself out there, his teamates and the fans would follow him through anything. Anyone who watched that game knows Cutler didn't even try. And that is the sad part. The NFL is not for the cold and timid souls.

After watching all the hits and sacks Cutler endured last season, any Bear fans that doubts his toughness should stop being a Bear fan. As for fans of other teams?...Who gives a damn what they think anyway?..Most teams would sell their souls for a QB like Cutler!

I'll admitt I wasn't to happy when Cutler came out of the game, but you can't question his toughness. He took a big beeting in 2010. I believe he was sacked more than any other team last year. Lets give the man a break. The Bears need to bolster up the Oline get a WR thats not afraid to go for the Ball. I don't care if your P. Manning, T. Brady, or what ever QB thats back there throwing the football. Your QB is only as good as your Oline is. They need some protection. Go Bears
