The biggest problem for Jay Cutler since joining the Bears has been the inability to stay upright. He led the league in sacks in 2010, and has been sacked 21 times this season. The good news is that against the Eagles, the Bears offensive line kept Cutler from getting sacked. The last time that happened was in a Nov. 12, 2009 loss to San Francisco. That's just short of two years.
Since the last time Jay Cutler went sack-free:
- The Blackhawks won a Stanley Cup, breaking a 49-year drought.
- Lou Piniella retired from coaching baseball after a stint with the Cubs. Mike Quade was hired as the manager, and then fired.
- Richard Daley stepped down after the longest mayoral run in Chicago history, and Rahm Emanuel was sworn in.
- 9.34 feet of snow fell, including the historic February 2011 blizzard that shut down Lake Shore Drive.
- Chilean miners were trapped underground for 69 days and rescued.
- Ozzie Guillen was fired as the White Sox manager.
- 258 medals were awarded at the Vancouver Olympics, including 37 to the United States.
- China, Haiti, Japan, Turkey, Chile, and Indonesia survived devastating earthquakes. Unprecedented tornadoes hit Alabama, Missouri and Oklahoma.
- Spain won the men's World Cup, and vuvuzuelas took over. Japan won the women's world cup, and Hope Solo took over.
- "Jersey Shore" debuted, and aired five seasons.
- Jay Cutler threw for 6,289 yards. The Bears won the NFC North and made it to the NFC Championship game.
