Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler can be either called gutsy or unnecessarily foolish after his 12-yard scamper for a first down in Sunday's matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Facing third-and-10 at the Chicago 26 without an open receiver in sight, Cutler tucked the ball and ran for the first down and then some. At the end of the play, rather than sliding as QBs are taught to do, he lowered his throwing shoulder and collided hard with Steelers safety Robert Golden. Does Cutler regret the move? "No, I don't," Cutler told WMVP-AM, via CSN Chicago. "I know what I'm doing out there, but thanks for your concern, I appreciate it ... But I have to play the game and that's how I sometimes have to play the game. Sorry, I'm not sorry." Cutler might not be sorry, but head coach Marc Trestman probably doesn't want to see that kind of move ever again.  “We want him to slide whenever he can,” Trestman said, via the Chicago Tribune. “We want him to give himself up. As I said, I think he would have if he was more comfortable with where the (first-down line) was.” The two haven't dicussed the play yet, but Cutler has a message for his fans and detractors:  “I know what I’m doing out there,” he said on his weekly radio show. “So thanks for your concern. I appreciate it. … I’m not looking for your admiration. I’m just trying to pick up a first down in the fourth quarter.”
