Jay Cutlers Injury Caleb Hanies Inexperience and What It Means for the Bears

As you’ve likely already heard, Jay Cutler is likely out for six to eight weeks with a broken thumb that requires surgery.

This team is still led by a turnover machine of a defense and the best special teams unit in football.  The offense still has Matt Forte and Marion Barber.  And Hanie proved he could move the ball down the field against the best team in the league in the highest pressure situation imaginable last year in the NFC Championship Game.  He’s inexperienced and raw.  But he has good potential and has been sitting behind Jay Cutler for two-and-a-half years learning and growing.
