Jay Cutler made an appearance on the Waddle and Silvy show on Wednesday and you can tell he’s chomping at the bit to get back out there and help his team.
“We were doing some grip stuff this past week, trying to get some flexibility and mobility back in there,” Cutler said Wednesday on “The Waddle & Silvy Show” on ESPN 1000. “The next couple of weeks hopefully I’ll be able to throw the football and hopefully some of this pain subsides.”
Cutler actually went into how they tried to help his grip to get back quicker:
“During the surgery he brought in a sterilized football and put my hand on it after he screwed everything in and made sure my grip was where I liked it, and I would have some freedom and flexibility. He’s on top of his game. I didn’t go out there for nothing.”
Which begs the question, “how do you sterilize a football???” Hit the jump for a fun Cutler parody song.
One thing that Cutler made clear is that time is not on the Bears’ side. He needs to get back quickly. If he can start throwing in two weeks, it’s possible he could be ready for the season finale in Minnesota. If the Bears are still in the playoff race (and based on what we saw last week, that’s not a given, but it’s still possible), maybe Cutler can help ring in the New Year with a strong performance to put the Bears over the top.
I saw a link to this video “Cutty Come Back” to the tune of 1970′s one-hit-wonder Player’s “Baby Come Back” and got a kick out of it and thought you might too.
