This is a regular series which combines my passion for trading cards with my interest in celebrities. Quarterbacks and Bears are on the minds of most Chicagoans. Why would I be any different (no smarty-pants answers needed).
Jay Cutler is out injured and Caleb Hanie is in. Cutler has been the subject of many sports radio shows since he arrived in Chicago, but maybe now everyone will realize just how valuable he is. He is easily the best quarterback I have seen with the Bears in my lifetime. Cutler is a competitor and with enough talent around him, he could be a Super Bowl winning quarterback. He is certainly frustrated with sitting out with the injury, but I am sure his spirit will be lifted once he sees he finally made a Celebrity Jersey Card!
The Indy Colts are suffering through a horrible season mostly due to Peyton Manning's injury. The Colts signed Kerry Collins and threw their helmet into the Andrew Luck lottery. A couple years ago, Jeff Fisher (then coach of the Tennessee Titans) was criticized for putting on a Peyton Manning jersey in jest. Maybe Fisher was dreaming of a second career as an emergency replacement for Manning. The more likely scenario was that he was attempting to earn his place among the greats who have appeared on Celebrity Jersey Cards!
