JAY CUTLER isn't sure he'll throw another pass for the Chicago Bears this year. Speaking to reporters for the first time yesterday since he broke the thumb on his right (throwing) hand against San Diego 2 weeks ago, Cutler said he might be finished for the season. "I've got to be smart about it," he said. "Obviously, I'd want to play next week if they'd allow me. I don't think that's going to be in the cards. It could be I'm done for the season. I just have to be smart about it and realize that there is a long-term picture here.

You've got to love Rex Ryan. The Jets coach is one of those guys who repeatedly shoots his mouth off, abjectly apologizes, and promises to reform. Until the next time. On Wednesday Ryan called Chargers counterpart Norv Turner to clarify comments he made in a conference call with the San Diego media. Ryan was asked if he had reflected on what would have happened if he'd been hired in San Diego for his first NFL head coaching job - the position that went to Turner when both interviewed for it after the 2006 season.

IT'S UNANIMOUS: This year's "Bonnie Lindros Meddlesome Mom Award" goes to Andrea McDonald. McDonald's son Alex Collins, a five-star running back from South Plantation High near Fort Lauderdale, Fla., was in the school's auditorium Wednesday, preparing to sign a letter of intent to play for Arkansas. But he never did, because mom grabbed the papers and sprinted from the building. Apparently, she wants him to play at a school closer to home. When Arkansas coach Bret Bielema appeared on ESPNU on Wednesday to talk about his recruits, he couldn't mention Collins because he had not officially signed yet. On Wednesday, Collins older brother, Johnny, told the Miami Herald that the family wants Alex to consider the University of Miami.

Each week, Daily News football writer Paul Domowitch will tell you the things he will be keeping his eyes on during that week's game: 1. Defending the tight end: The Eagles will face yet another dangerous pass-catching tight end in the Bears' Greg Olsen. In the last six games, opposing tight ends have 43 catches for 532 yards and five touchdowns vs. the Eagles. Olsen, who has 34 catches, including six TDs, is one of Jay Cutler's favorite targets. Only WR Devin Hester has had more passes thrown in his direction (73)

Line: Packers by 3 The skinny: The Bears (2-0) are coming off an impressive win at Dallas and are off to their best start since the 2006 Super Bowl team won its first seven, in large part because quarterback Jay Cutler is delivering the way the Bears anticipated when they got him from Denver last year. "It's nice to watch him have the success he has had the first two games," Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers "You've got to point to, definitely, some growth in him and understanding that system coach [Mike]

The Eagles are in first place in the NFC East. Well, they're tied with the Giants and Redskins, but at least they're ahead of the Cowboys. So things went pretty darn well for the Eagles on Sunday as the Redskins, Cowboys and Giants all lost. Poor Donovan McNabb. Despite throwing for 426 yards, his Redskins fell to 1-1 when Graham Gano missed a field goal in overtime from 34 yards out, and the Texans went on to win. And how about those Cowboys and Tony Romo? He threw two interceptions and was outplayed by Jay Cutler in Dallas' terrible loss to the Bears.

I'VE SEEN the Eagles lose games to the Bears they should have won each of the past two seasons, and here I am, taking the Eagles again. Even though they are 0-7 on Sunday nights since these little NBC deadline-busters first appeared. I think I might fit Joe Banner's definition of insanity, voiced after last season's NFC Championship Game loss. But I'm sorry - Jay Cutler? Behind that offensive line? I'm a little worried about the extra days Lovie Smith has had to prepare, Cutler's five-interception meltdown having occurred a week ago last night, but not that worried.
