Pretty bad when you are so injured during the NFC Championship game, with a Superbowl birth on the line, that you can't continue.....but then hours later go out with your reality show girlfriend and other friends to eat dinner, and take the stairs instead of the elevator. That, is pathetic.

Fresh off a disastrous NFC Championship Game in which he left the field with a knee injury, Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler spent Sunday night out on the town with his girlfriend, former MTV reality star Kristin Cavallari.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Cutler and Cavallari dined with 11 others in a private upstairs room at Mastro's Steakhouse just hours after the Bears' 21-14 loss to Green Bay, a game in which the quarterback sustained a Grade 2 tear of his MCL.

Cutler was reportedly walking with a "tiny limp" and took the stairs rather than the elevator.

Cutler's exit from the game was met with a torrent of Twitter criticism from fellow NFL players, who questioned his toughness since his injury was not obvious to viewers at the time.

However, many of Cutlerís teammates and head coach Lovie Smith were quick to defend him, saying his injury was serious and contending Cutler wanted to return to the game but was not allowed by team doctors.

Third-string quarterback Caleb Hanie led the Bears to two touchdowns in the second half, but his attempted game-winning drive ended with an interception, sending the arch rival Packers to Super Bowl XLV.
