Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler's can be a pretty good guy when he wants to be — and in this case, it's beyond wanting, and moves right into needing.

The need isn't his, however, it's the family of a murdered Chicago Bears fan.

You see, he invited the family of the Bears fan killed in Jacksonville prior to the team's road game against the Jaguars. 42-year-old Christopher Pettry, a married father of three from Lake Villa, Ill., was stabbed at a restaurant in the Jacksonville Landing area.

Not only did he give them the tickets, but he also spent time with them prior to the game against Detroit. Here's what he said:

"We wanted to reach out and bring them to the game. It's a tough situation. There's nothing I or anyone can say that can really ease their pain or bring anybody back. Hopefully we were able to let them have an enjoyable time for three or four hours and kind of forget their loss and just have a good time and help them in that way because it's hard."

He hits the nail on the head here — what can you do for a grieving family?

We say this was a pretty good option. At this point, any amount of a distraction would be beneficial.

Our hearts go out to those who are mourning the loss of Christopher.
