The Chicago Bears' Jay Cutler left the game at the start of the second half of the NFC Championship game against the Green Bay Packers, who lead 14-0, after three quarters. Todd Collins went under center and has done little to help put any points on the board for the Bears. Cutler is reportedly out with a knee injury with no signs of return. He looks like a defeated quarterback.
Neither offense has been able to put up any points on the board in the second half, though the Packers came close. On the Bears' six-yard line, Aaron Rodgers threw a pass intended for Donald Driver. However, Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher returned the ball to his 45 yard line for a 39 yard gain. Rodgers had the tackle to prevent a touchdown.
Caleb Hanie, the Bears' third quarterback, entered the game at the start of the fourth quarter. Cutler and Collins are ineligible to return to today's game.
