I can't bash Cutler ... he was injured during the course of the game and there's no exact telling whether his injury was worse/better than Drew's. Also keep in mind Cutler is 6'3 and knee injuries can be more dehabilitating for taller people or different types of athletes.

Drew's resistance training regimen paid off big-time this year. Probably instrumental in allowing him to keep playing.

He's already healed up. That was in the middle of the season.

LOL .... don't play in the Pro Bowl, Does anyone play in the Pro Bowl.

Turns out Jay Cutler wasn't the only NFL quarterback who dealt with a medial collateral ligament problem during the playoffs.


New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton confirmed Monday that his quarterback, Drew Brees, suffered a "low-grade" medial collateral ligament sprain earlier this season, and he played through it in the wild-card playoff loss to the Seattle Seahawks, The Times-Picayune reported.

Cutler has been the target of criticism for leaving the Bears' NFC Championship Game loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday with a sprained MCL. Payton declined to make any comparison between the two quarterbacks Monday, saying there are multiple levels of severity to ligament injuries.

In other Saints injury news, Payton confirmed to the Times-Picayune that running back Pierre Thomas had "extensive" arthoscopic surgery on his ankle. The rehabilitation process that follows should last well into the offseason. Payton also provided a positive update on running back Chris Ivory, who had a screw inserted into his injured ankle. Payton called Ivory's surgery "encouraging."

Wide receiver Marques Colston is expected to have arthoscopic surgery on both his knee and wrist. Payton said Colston might miss some organized team activities during the rehab process.

Offensive tackle Jon Stinchcomb is expected to have minor surgery on an unspecified injury. Linebacker Jonathan Vilma and defensive end Anthony Hargrove might follow with similar procedures.

The only good thing to your report QBrees is that we at least have a long offseason to heal. Get on with the surgeries and get on with the healing. We have a Lombardi to take back next year...
