    Bears investigated by NFL for their handling of Cutler's concussion

    Jay Cutler was hammered by Houston Texans linebacker Tim Dobbins in the second quarter Sunday night in one of the hardest hits to the helmet we've seen a quarterback take all season. He suffered a concussion. He did not come out of the game until halftime -- seven snaps later.

    No matter how the Chicago Bears explain it, they failed Cutler in the game by not testing him for a concussion right away and/or taking him out of the game. Chicago coach Lovie Smith said Cutler did not start displaying symptoms until halftime. That's ridiculous.

    Cutler was hit on a play that required a replay review to determine if he threw the ball past the line of scrimmage. There was a long delay in the game and the NBC broadcasters mentioned multiple times that Cutler looked "shaken up" or "foggy" after taking the hit. They mentioned that the extra time could help Cutler shake the cobwebs out.

    Anyone watching at home could tell Cutler was at risk enough to be thoroughly checked. He didn't look right. But he was allowed to stay in the game and wound up taking another hit on an 11-yard gain the very next play. If Cutler was clocked in the head again, we suspect the reaction to him staying in the game would be very different. He took more shots than necessary; even Smith admitted that.

    We contacted the NFL to see if they will be investigating whether the Bears followed procedure. A spokesman responded: "We review with club medical staffs all significant injuries."

    The NFL takes concussions and injury procedure seriously enough to fine the Redskins $20,000 just for mislabeling Robert Griffin III's concussion to the media. Teams should be held more accountable for failing to keep their players safe.

    UPDATE: The NFL reviewed the incident and found no wrongdoing. "Our office reviewed it with the [Bears] medical staff and it was properly handled," said NFL spokesman Greg Aiello, via the Chicago Sun-Times. "The team followed the correct protocol."

    Vernon Davis scares me; other than that their O doesn't worry me. The question is if the OL can bring that same performance.

    Good thing the 49ers have forgotten that Davis is still on their team lately.

    49ers QB Alex Smith slept well last night, things are looking positive and he'll visit with neurologist this afternoon, Jim Harbaugh said.
    Lets hope Cutler can play as well.

    Isn't sleeping something you don't want to do when you have a concussion?

    ^Yup, but being able to sleep as opposed to not being able to due to pain, disorientation, etc. is a good thing (from what I remember from my concussions, anyway).

    You just don't want to go to sleep immediately after a concussion... The doctors probably checked him out and at that point it's fine to get rest... It's probably a good thing in fact

    Week 11: BEARS (7-2) vs 49ERS (6-2-1)

    NFL record for ints is 14 by nightrain lane and we all know he cheated with PI and stick em. So Jennings is on pace for 17 right now.

    Do you not put him in DPOY if he breaks the record?

    ^ That's what I was saying yesterday. IMO he's almost on equal ground as Trillman is in the race. It's not true that you only get a FF if the ball is recovered, otherwise Trillman would've had only 3 against TEN as one went out of bounds. I feel like he's had more but regardless the count is seven, plus 2 INT's. I think six of those fumbles were recovered by us, so doesn't that mean they've both been directly responsible for 8 takeaways apiece?

    A lot of FF aren't counted when they get popped out of bounds. Cause Tillman has had more than 7 this year. He had 3 against the Lions and was officially only credited with one. At least according to Pro-Football-Reference.

    And then. He made them pancakes.

    If Cutty plays, I truly like our chances. If he doesnt, well....


    San Fran is good, but I dont think they are nearly as good as people were hyping them up over the first 3 to 4 weeks of the season...If we can get a few turnovers and the Oline plays decent, I really think we win.

    Yeah, I know. It's really stupid. A fumble is a fumble.

    But at the end of the day, all we can go by is the official count.

    Hopefully Cutler plays because it will be REALLY difficult to win this with Campbell.

    Also hate to be looking ahead, but with Seattle and Green Bay threatening and Tampa Bay coming on, home for Seattle, home for Minnesota, and at Arizona are must-wins.

    I'm still very sure we'll make the playoffs but if we lose this one we'll need to be careful or we might slip up.
