Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler had arguably the best hit of Week 3 during his team’s win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night. With Chicago leading 27-24 in the fourth quarter, Cutler took off and scrambled for 13 yards to pick up a crucial first down on 3rd-and-10. Steelers safety Robert Golden made the tackle on the play, if you even want to call it that.
Rather than sliding like most coaches kindly ask their quarterbacks to do, Cutler lowered his shoulder and trucked Golden. Bears coach Marc Trestman probably asked him to never do it again, especially since he led with his throwing shoulder. Here’s another look at the play:
The play was fun to watch, but it was also incredibly idiotic. Chicago is 3-0 and its new offense appears to be clicking nicely. The last thing the team needs is to lose Cutler because he didn’t feel like sliding. There will be plenty of time during the offseason to act like that oversized Pee Wee football player who loves to lay the lumber.
