Pass the stuffing

A nice, light topic for your Thanksgiving table: Jay Cutler’s legacy in Chicago. Grab the mashed potatoes and dig in. Cutler didn’t practice today (no shock there), but John Fox wouldn’t rule him out for the year (because he’s John Fox). David Haugh writes that the QB deserved responsibility for much of the Bears’ woefulness, but never as much blame as he received. On the Bears podcast, Rich Campbell and Dan Wiederer debate what’s next for Cutler – A trade? Retirement? Another stint in Chicago? Mike Mulligan reflects on what could have been this season, as the Bears put their 14th player on the injured reserve in Zach Miller. So there’s your Cutler scoop to go with your Thanksgiving turkey spread. The Inside Slant will be off for the rest of the week; save us some pumpkin pie and we’ll be over at 6.
