Jay Cutler felt funny walking off the field in Philadelphia Monday night but it wasn’t because he was hurt. In fact, it was quite the opposite.
“Is this how it feels when you don’t get sacked nine times in a game?” asked Cutler moments after the Bears finished off a 30-24 Monday Night Football win over the Eagles. “I’m walking without a pronounced limp and none of my extremities are tingling. I could get used to this.”
Monday night was the first time Cutler was not sacked in a game since November 2009 so the feeling was new to him.
“Usually by the end of the game my elbows are bleeding and I can barely walk,” said Cutler. “But tonight I feel pretty much the same way I did when the game started. Plus I have this weird feeling of pride after leading our team to a big win. It’s bizarre, but, like I said, I think I could get used to this.”
