In Tampa...

What if they had pulled it off? What if, back in 2009, the Tampa Bay Bucs had gotten their man?

In that case, Jay Cutler would be a Buc.

And, if you could believe it, today would be even more embarrassing.

I don't know about you, but that was the first thing that entered my mind when the Bears finally grew weary of the sight of Cutler behind center. It could have been here. All those disappointing Sundays, all those games in which he didn't quite have enough fire to compete, could have been in Bucs' colors.

If it is possible for a team that has won only 30 times in almost six full seasons to go “whew!,'' well, this is the time.
