If this were an Outlook e-mail, I’d put one of those red exclamation points along with it.
Jay Cutler has started 57 straight games in his career. It took the 2010 Chicago Bears offensive line to knock him out for the first time. Today it was announced that Todd Collins is the starting quarterback of your Chicago Bears this week at Carolina. Collins is an old guy…he’s my age (actually slightly younger), and still playing in the NFL. Still cracks me up, I remember when Collins was one of the potential sleeper quarterbacks of the 1995 draft, along with Rob Johnson and Eric Zeier. When Collins got his shot as the starter of the 6-10 Buffalo Bills, he played so well that he didn’t end up starting another game until the 2007 season with the Redskins.
I hope Collins works out. Actually I should say for his sake that he stays healthy first. But…there are so many things I could say right now about how this might work out that I’ll leave this to you.
