GREEN BAY — No way. This wasn’t possible.

Of all the scenarios that might have crossed even the most virulently pro-Packers mind, Jay Cutler throwing three interceptions by halftime in his Bears debut was not one of them.

Nor was a fourth interception that cost his team a chance to win Sunday night.

So, no. Don’t come here and try to weave that unthinkable tale of woeful quarterbacking. Since Cutler came to town, it was supposed to be on the banned-book list.

But it came to life Sunday night. Cutler was dreadful in the Bears‘ 21-15 loss. That last interception, with about a minute left in the game, sealed his team’s fate. He was left to knock Packers cornerback Al Harris out of bounds and listen to the taunts of jubilant fans at Lambeau Field.

You can’t put a ceiling on the disbelief involved here. It wasn’t just Cutler’s 43.2 passer rating. It was that he looked like so many of the quarterbacks who have stumbled through Chicago.
