When the Bears host the Vikings on Sunday night, Jay Cutler won’t be the only quarterback twitching. If it seems as if Cutler is sacked more consistently than any other QB in the league, you’re right. The Bears passer has been taken down at least once in 27 straight games, the longest active streak in the league. But Donovan McNabb isn’t far behind, having been sacked in 20 straight games.

Jay Cutler certainly did his part in contributing to the Bears’ impressive Week 1 victory over the Falcons, but there was so much more.
It’s 27 days until the start of the 2011 NFL season. And 27 was the average pass attempts per game last season for Bears QB Jay Cutler. Not only was that a career low for Cutler, but it’s the lowest such number for a starting QB under passing guru Mike Martz, Chicago’s offensive coordinator.

Steve Smith has left New York for greener pastures — Eagles green, that is. Smith’s signing means Giants-Eagles will join other NFL contests that feature high-profile homecomings this season, including Shaun Ellis lining up against the New York Jets in a Patriots uniform, and Pats DE Albert Haynesworth getting a crack at his old coach Mike Shanahan when New England visits Washington on Dec. 11. We asked our panel of experts which 2011 “revenge game” they’re looking forward to most in the latest Instant Debate. Look for that later today on NFL.com

Randy Moss and Terrell Owens might be a little long in the tooth, but will they still have fantasy value once the lockout ends?
In fairness to Jay Cutler, he needs in Chicago what he had in Denver, a true No. 1 receiver.

Six Days to Sunday. NFL Films did a documentary special in 1995, but as good as it was, it would be hard pressed to beat the drama and suspense of the six days leading up to the NFL Draft. If only we could be flies on the wall in various scouting departments around the league, where they have six late nights left to work on their draft boards.
