'Cutty Come Back' soothes QB withdrawal

Feeling blue and missing your injured quarterback Bears fans?

Well there is no sense in wallowing in your own sadness, especially now that you can soothe your pain with the soulful sound of the new hit parody song "Cutty Come Back".

The track, written by Chicagoan Magic Uno and produced by Chad in Portland, has taken Chicago by storm with its spot-on lyrical substitution of the 1977 Billboard 1 song "Baby Come Back" by Player.

Some of the most creative lines include:

"You can blame it all on the team
Knox fell down, now the offense can't work without you..."

And maybe my personal favorite:

"Do you think you can throw left-handed?
Desperate as can be. Now we're down to Enderle..."

Impressive job writing this spoof-tastic musical gem in such a short amount of time from an obviously distraught Bears fan (@magic_uno a.k.a. Jesus) in Chicago. Equally amazing is the production value by @chadinPortland. You can tell how emotional Jesus had to be because the words just spill out line after line in what seems more like a cry for help than a tribute to a fallen hero.

It's funny how less than a year ago many Bears fans were questioning the quarterback's toughness and now they can't help but sing-along to "Cutty Come Back".

Check out the video below and see if it soothes you.

Dowell Loggains' energy suiting Mike Glennon, Bears QBs well

Dowell Loggains' energy suiting Mike Glennon, Bears QBs well

As Bears quarterbacks begin learning Dowell Loggains’ offense, they’re also in a getting-to-know-you phase with each other. 

While it’s not Mike Glennon’s job to develop Mitch Trubisky — that falls on Loggains and Dave Ragone — there does need to be some level of harmony from Glennon to Trubisky to Mark Sanchez to Connor Shaw in this unit. Coach John Fox is no fan of locker room drama, after all. 

The energy Loggains brings to practice could help foster some of that unit-level cohesiveness. Whether it’s through practice competitions or his spirited coaching style, it’s helped keep things lively as the Bears move through their offseason program. 

“He does a great job,” Glennon said. “He brings a lot of energy and he’s got that young personality that a lot of guys respond well to. It’s been great having him around along with a lot of other players and coaches, but he definitely does a great job bringing that energy.”

Shaw is the only holdover in the Bears’ quarterback room from last year, and even then, he suffered a season-ending injury during preseason play in August. The new guys are a 27-year-old signed to a $45 million contract, the No. 2 pick in the draft and a veteran who started two AFC Championship games. 

Good chemistry in the quarterback room doesn’t guarantee success, but it’s something that probably can’t hurt, especially with the development of Trubisky underway. That the Bears have been emphatic in defining Glennon’s role — it’s his year — set the right tone, Ragone said earlier this month. Adding Loggains’ energy in practice seems to have had a positive effect already, too. 

“With three new guys, they've worked very hard in the classroom and now finally we get to take it out on the field, so they're pretty enthusiastic themselves,” coach John Fox said. “And that's just Dowell's style.

“We have some pretty good guys in that room. Different levels of experience that have been there before and done it and that dynamic as far as being a good teammate and the relationship you have with that so I think that's why they handle it so well.”
