Jay Cutler has been at the center of a media firestorm this week after failing to complete the NFC Championship.

Due to a serious knee injury, Cutler was yanked, leading many of his peers to question the heart and toughness of the Bears' starting signal caller. 

Todd Collins was an abject failure when he came in, but Caleb Hanie looked impressive considering the situation into which he was thrust.

Here are 10 quarterbacks from around the NFL who deserve a shot at a starting job.
