Can They Forfeit?
- Jay Cutler is once again the starting quarterback for the Chicago Bears. Just like that.
In yet another surprise twist in a season full of unpredictability, the Bears announced Monday afternoon that Cutler would start their regular-season finale Sunday against the Vikings at TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. The move came in concert with the team’s announcement that Jimmy Clausen has been ruled out for the finale after being diagnosed with a concussion.
That must have been an interesting meeting:
- Yeah....Hi Jay....it's Coach. You know how we benched you for the rest of the season? Yeah, the team had lost confidence in your ability to throw the ball. Yeah, $15 million a year kind of leads people to expect some sort of accuracy and all that. Mmmmhmmm, well, we've got a little problem...
What's the worst a forfeit could bring them?
