During November, Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has grown a mustache as part of Movember, an initiative meant to raise awareness and money for prostate and testicular cancers. Pretty cool, but he's not going to hold onto the mustache when the calendar changes.
But before he takes the razor to his face, we have an important question, Bears fans. Should Jay keep the 'stache?*
Without the 'stache: Cutler played seven games without the lip fur, and was up and down. He had two two-touchdown pass games against Dallas and Jacksonville. He had his highest quarterback rating of the year in the season-opening win against Indianapolis. He also threw four interceptions against the Packers, was sacked five times by the Lions and fumbled twice against the Panthers.
With the 'stache: Cutler had one of his best games of the season. He threw for three touchdowns against the Titans, his season-high. He sustained against the Texans and missed the loss to the 49ers. He then came back for a good game against the Vikings, leading the Bears to an important divisional win.
*Keeping in mind that he's not likely to listen to any of our opinions on the matter. Also, yes, we realize this is a trivial matter, but don't you need a little fun after so many injuries and not great news? Same here.
