Jay Cutler

When the Bears acquired Jay Cutler in April 2009, I had no idea that the defining image of his career would be what his face looks like while he's taking a sack. We talked about arm strength and attitude, and about his size and durability, but the idea that Cutler's Bears career would be defined by the moments when he is dragged to the turf didn't occur to anyone. And why would it? In 37 games with the Broncos, Cutler was sacked 51 times, about 1.4 times per game. In 63 games with the Bears, he has been sacked 158 times, about 2.5 times per game.

I am the most optimistic Chicago sports fan you'll ever read. I still hold hope that the Theocracy will break a 105-year Cubs drought, I believe Derrick Rose will lead the Bulls past Miami this spring, and I don't see any reason why the Blackhawks won't play in the Stanley Cup Final again this season. But trust me, the Bears' season is over. Sure, they'll play the games. I mean, they have to. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell would be ticked off if they went all Grambling on him. And the Bears will win a few, I'm sure.

Ouch. And double ouch. The football gods dropped the hammer on Bears Nation on Monday, as quarterback Jay Cutler is out at least four weeks with a torn groin muscle and linebacker Lance Briggs is out four to six weeks with a shoulder fracture. Which means the Bears have to replace their offensive leader and their defensive leader for at least a month. Coach Marc Trestman did his best to look on the bright side, as coaches do. "The positive thing is they're not out for the season," he told reporters at Halas Hall, adding that neither player will require surgery.

NFL organizations always preach about the "perfect fit. " There's a lot to get right for a team to win a Super Bowl. It's even more important when you have to adjust midseason. Just ask the Bears. They entered Thursday's game against the N.Y. Giants with several players at less than 100 percent, including starters Martellus Bennett, Lance Briggs and Charles Tillman. They emerged with a 27-21 victory at Soldier Field, improving to 4-2. And the Bears don't play again until Oct. 20 at Washington.

Oh, how far away 2011 feels. As RedEye's sole Giants fan, it's been a long, lonely season for me already. The Giants have gone a miserable 0-5, and I'm beginning to fear this may be the year coach Tom Coughlin's head actually explodes. The Bears have stumbled the past two weeks as well, making Thursday's matchup the opposite of must-see football. It's all we've got though, kiddos, so let's make the most of this NFL lint ball. Here are four reasons to tune in that have very little to do with, well, actual football.

Sunday's loss to New Orleans wasn't fun. The Bears' interior defense got exposed and their offense got confused early on, digging a hole too deep to escape. Thankfully, Bears Nation had only three days to mourn the season's second loss. Thursday the Bears host the woeful New York Giants, and they're gonna make it a laugher. Yeah, yeah, "any given Sunday"… well, it ain't Sunday. FACTS FLYING AT YOUR FACE: > > Since 2010, the home team in these Thursday night games is 21-10.

The Bears host the Giants on Thursday in what should be a great game. And it should be a track meet, as the Bears are beaten up on defense and the Giants defense has been nonexistent. Which means both teams could have fantasy game changers. Jay Cutler, Bears quarterback It's Year 5 for Cutler in a Bears uniform, and from a fantasy perspective he is a dud. Cutler lit it up with the Broncos, especially in 2008, but has been a fantasy disappointment with the Bears. This year is a slightly different story, as Cutler is very effective in coach Marc Trestman's offense.

The undefeated New Orleans Saints marched into Soldier Field on Sunday - and they sprinted out with a 26-18 victory over the Bears. The Bears went from winning three in a row at the start of the season to losing back-to-back games, first against Detroit and now the Saints, who had lost the past three games they played in Chicago. "This is the NFL; any team can be beat on Sunday," cornerback Tim Jennings said. "Obviously we didn't play our best games these last two weeks, but we still have a long season ahead.

Last weekend, I finally started "Breaking Bad. " I rolled through Season 1 in two nights, and then this weekend started Season 2. But I had to stop watching during Episode 5. The show was too tense and uncomfortable, but mostly I couldn't deal with Walt's treatment of Jesse. Why is he so mean to this kid? What kind of a high school teacher repeatedly calls one of his former students "stupid"? Just unacceptable. I had similar frustrations while watching the Bears-Lions game Sunday.

The fan overreaction that follows the first Bears loss of the season is as predictable as leaves changing color and local politicians getting indicted. After reading my timeline Sunday afternoon, I'm convinced Twitterbots generate at least half the Bears-related tweets out there. It doesn't even matter what year it is. "Fire [name='current.coach.Bears']!" "Put in [name='backupQB.current' NOT IF name='grossman.rex']!" "[print='This is not TRUE BEARS FOOTBALL!!!' IF date=> 01-26-1986]"
