Chris Harris resists calling out Jones-Drew

| 7 Comments | No TrackBacks

Bears safety Chris Harris valiantly fought through an injury last week to play his heart out in the Bears' 21-14 loss to the Packers on Sunday. Only Brian Urlacher and Danieal Manning had more tackles.

So he knows of what he speaks when he defended Jay Cutler from criticism by other NFL players for not being tough enough when Cutler was unable to finish the game. Among the players were the Jaguars Maurice Jones-Drew and the Eagles Asante Samuel.

''It's kind of a slap in the face,'' Harris said. ''It's kind of an unwritten code for players to [not] bash another player based on an injury. It would have been easy for me to say, 'Hey, Maurice Jones-Drew, you should have played our last two games of the season even though you have an injury and your team is still fighting for a playoff spot.' I could do that, but I'm not going to do it.''

Good can someone not call out Deion Sanders now? Mr. I missed 30 games because of turf toe, and actually said he didn't tackle because it was a "buisness decision" has got the nerve to tell Cutler to man up. Most unwilling tackler in nfl history. The that was so stupid he actually stated Cutler didn't have a tear but a sprain. The idiot doesn't even know they are one and the same.

Oh and by the way Mr. Knee injury Jones Drew had a partially torn Maniscus. Are you kidding me? Of course he could play he had a mild tear in his cartalidge. Not exactly a ligament injury. The side effects from that are some pain that can be lessened by taking Shark cartalidge. The surgery for it is a 5 min scope, and this caused him to miss two games?

I JUST CANT BELIEVE SOME OF THESE IDIOT FAIR WHETHER FANS GETTING ON CUTLER!! I BET THEY STAY HOME FROM WORK WITH THE SNIFFLES..... HOW MANY OF YOU JERKS THOUGHT THE BEARS WOULD GET AS FAR AS THEY DID?? JAY WILL GET NOTHING BUT BETTER AND LEAD US TO THE SUPERBOWL..THANKS FOR AN EXCITING YEAR. AS FOR THOSE PLAYERS SAYING SH.T! THE MEDICAL STAFF DID THE RIGHT THING KEEPING HIM OUT,, THE MRI PROVED THAT.I LOST ALL RESPECT FOR THOSE PLAYERS AND COMMETATERS WHO PUT CUTLER UNDER THE BUS. THAT MEANS DITKA AS WELL,ALWAYS ONE OF MY FAVORERITS..NO MORE.. GO BEARS ..........

Creighton,
I heard someone on the radio yesterday say it best:

The only way Deion tears his MCL is running away from contact on astro-turf....

I agree though, the guys who called him out are certainly not iron men who played on broken legs or anything.

Let's just hope we play the Jags sometime next season, and let it be open season on MJD...There is nothing professional athletes like more than sticking it to someone who doubts them.

No such luck Joe. I wish we had a James Harrison type on the team on defense to put a hurt on some of these chumps. If it's one thing that I tthink the Bears could use on offense and Defense it's some enforcers. Enforcers who can back it up on the field, like Harrison and Mankins. Olin is cooling off now at the end of his career and can't really do a lot to enforce the Bears image via play. After play he is fine but during the a play he just doesn't have it anymore.

Outside the division these are the guys we play.

Chicago will host home games featuring the Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, Kansas City Chiefs, San Diego Chargers, and the Seattle Seahawks. The Bears go on the road to play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New Orleans Saints, Oakland Raiders, Denver Broncos and the Philadelphia Eagles.

It's a pretty easy year just looking at this, Carolina, Seattle, Chargers defense won;t be close to as good without Chico, Broncos (This will be a fire storm and Cutler needs some guys around him)

The Hit list for next year:

Detroit Zack Follet had the nerve to talk smack about Cutler some nobody opening his mouth. I think Detroit needs to be reminded of why they are Detroit.

Chargers, Phillip Rivers and his back handed compliment of Cutler, the guy is a total #ss bag. I hope Peppers and Urlacher have really good games. Which Brings me to the defensive line how about Mathias Kiwanuka. We could also use a corner against this team so how about this guy Nnamdi Asomugha, who is a FA.

Saints, their head coach opened his mouth and he needs it shut.

Would love to get a shot at some guys like Docket and MJD but that is not going to happen.

Bears have so many needs at this point and I keep getting the feeling Angleo will once again short change line and focus on defense. That O-Line needs so much help Raji just killed them this year and that is going to be twice a year for a long time. Jenkins to.

Hahahaha classic, "Jay Cutler is my daddy"

I've been out of town attending my sister's funeral, but have to weigh in here in support of Cutler. Cheap shots are a dime a dozen, and the idiots who attack Cutler's toughness should develop type 1 diabetes and see how tough they would be in coping with it.That Cutler is able to cope with it and play professional football is incredible. My six-year -old grandson has it and is the toughest six-year-old I've ever seen.He can look up to guys like Cutler and Santo and garner some much needed encouragement.
