Lovie Smith was all ready to start Jay Cutler, but then Cutler shows up in his Bears uni and asks where coach Shanarat is.  Uh oh.  Time to start Todd "Todd" Collins. 

Collins had an 8.1 passer rating in the fiasco versus the Giants.  Previous to that, he was Jason Campbell's backup, and had a 106.4 passer rating in 3 starts (4 GP) in 2007.  Before that, you have to go back to 1997 to find any starts for Collins, who had a 69.5 passer rating in 13 starts for the Bills.  Before Collins, some guy named Jim Kelly held the job, and his successor was Rob Johnson.  Going back to his college days at Michigan, he was preceded by one Elvis Grbac, beloved of Ravens fans to this day. 

Collins has 4,515 yards career -- career

When I heard this on the radio earlier I wondered if it was that Todd "Todd" Collins.  Dayum.

Yes, he's one of Washington's top receivers.  Which explains a lot.

I had to watch this disaster of a game because I am cursed with living in proximity to the Carolina Panthers, one of the only truly bad things about living here.  Well, that and being in the heart of Tea Party territory.

It was an absolute joke.  The Panthers are just painful to watch, and the Bears were not much better.

Total passing yards combined for the game:  91.

I feel for ya Preach.  So, Todd Collins lurked around the NFL for year after year to unleash this:  6/16 32 (that's yards) 4 INT for a passer rating of 6.3 only to be replaced by Caleb Hanie!?  Who?  When did the Amish start getting guys in the NFL.

Whew!
