I, for one, am shocked that Cutler opened his mouth then made an ass of himself.
 
2012-09-14 09:13:16 AM  
And I'm sure it was Woodson's fault for Cutler kicking him. On the plus side, Jay has enough sack lunches to get him through the week.

I do like that he thinks the Packers would try to hurt him. C'mon, Jay, the team got tore up by Alex Smith. The secondary gets destroyed by virtually everyone in the league but you. Why would they want you out of the game? Remember that NFC Championship game? They got you injured and nearly lost to Caleb f*cking Hanie.

How about you point fingers at the arm that threw four farking interceptions...you know, yours.
 
2012-09-14 09:25:24 AM  
Dunno, I'm with Cutler on this one. He didn't get a lot of help from his receivers leading up to the point that the Bears offense went into desperation mode.
 
2012-09-14 09:28:17 AM  
I dunno subbie, I was watching the game on NFL Network and they seem to think that the interceptions weren't Cutler's fault. Receiver's weren't coming back to the ball, some guy had a penalty earlier, etc etc.

In fairness, they were mostly a good percentage on Cutler and there were more shoulda-been picks, but NFLN isn't going to criticize QBs. The receiver sat in the zone - Cutler got the ball there late on the Bennett play. You want to see a play that's on the receiver, watch James Jones stop his out route after one step because he sees the defender, then curl up around him with the ball in the air based on his cut, ensuring the ball would get picked.

Good QBs don't see pressure and throw a jump ball in the middle of the field to a TE who is surrounded by four defensive players. Was the line bad? Sure. Did the receivers drop balls? Sure. Did Cutler suck? Yes. You'll notice that Rodgers also was dealing with receivers that can't catch and a line that was terrible at blocking, yet he didn't throw 4 INTs (and never has in his career).
 
2012-09-14 09:35:54 AM  
It isn't even schadenfreude to laugh at him last night and more this morning because there is no shame in it. Cutler bumped his gums and looked foolish. Has the guy ever taken over a game in some Montana-esque way and lead a team to victory, yet he's going to say this going into Lambeau and playing the Packers, a team that has owned him? The more far reaching repercussion from this game could be if this becomes a catalyst for the Packers to go on a dominant tear.

2012-09-14 09:49:52 AM  
I watched the game last night. I don't think Cutler got 1 second after the ball was snapped before he was swarmed with defenders. And his receivers weren't in position to catch the ball when he did throw it. I'm not a Cutler defender by any means, but he had a point that he got absolutely no help or protection last night. This article is yet another Chicago writer who can't stand Cutler and thinks that getting rid of him would magically make the Bears a contender.

If by Montana-esque you mean a late drive to win a game, sure. He beat the Chargers in one game where Hochuli blew his blatant loss-clinching fumble dead early, giving him an opportunity to try again, and he came through. If refs would have called all his interceptions something else, he probably could've won this game, too.

Hey! This Mortal Coil's "It'll End In Tears" is a great album. Don't lump it in with bear cub emo-boy.

1) Cutler is not a bad quarterback. He'd be an upgrade for at least half the teams in the league. Remember you had Sexy Rexy before him.
2) Playing quarterback in Chicago sucks because the fans have crazy expectations despite a history of not-great quarterbacks and because the weather sucks for quarterbacking.
3) The Bears o-line has been the worst o-line for the last half decade.

That sounds more Dilfer-esque.
 
2012-09-14 10:01:22 AM  
That post game presser was hilarious. Cutler looked every bit the spoiled rich kid who just had all his toys broken in front of him. His sarcasm was even funnier. "I really dream about getting picked off 4 times." Coulda fooled me with some of the ducks he was tossing up last night.
 
2012-09-14 10:01:44 AM  
I would not put the blame on Cutler here. The refs had a terrible night with regards to the 12 men on the field call, interceptions that were caught using the ground, and the lack of holding called. This was combined with terrible oline play. It still baffles me how two defensive players can run down the center of the line untouched. You also have receivers that did not fight for the ball or try to make a play for the ball, such as Bennet for the third interception. Then you have last year's receiver with the most dropped td passes in Marshall. Forte leaving the game with injury also removed an easy pressure release for Cutler. Finally the coaches called poor plays and did not make adjustments in the second half once the initial game plan failed.

Cutler did the best with what he had to work with last night. If he held the ball to long it was because the line did not open scrambling lanes and the receivers could not get open. A lot of those picks were the result of Cutler trying to make something happen and relying on his team mates to back him up.

Really I would be mad to if I was Cutler. The delay of game caused by not snapping the ball was a very silly mistake to make. Receivers giving half arsed effort is terrible and the play of the oline was garbage. Cutler does not tear his team apart in the linked video. He simply states that the Bears need to regroup and that he is not playing for his health(ha!) but to try to win games. In the end the packers won last night because various parts of the Chicago team self-destructed.
 
2012-09-14 10:02:08 AM  
I don't mind qb's yelling at their O-line from time to time, but Cutler was so bad with his calls yesterday (a lot on Mike Tice as well) that he had no right to biatch about anyone. Just shut up and work on your faults.
 
2012-09-14 10:03:44 AM  
Yup, wasn't his fault he held on to the ball too long, threw into double coverage, couldn't audible at the line of scrimmage to get better protection. Because it's not a quarterback's job to worry about those things, right?

Keep chuckin' those Emoceptions, Jay!

At least we know the MACC fund is getting a nice check this week!

GO PACK GO!
 
2012-09-14 10:05:33 AM  
That article writer just couldn't wait to write a negative article about Cutler.

"When center Roberto Garza was late snapping the ball on a first-quarter play, resulting in a delay of game flag, Cutler showed Garza up by petulantly simulating the leg stomp he'd done to signal for the ball."

As opposed to what? Laughing it off? High-fiving him?

IAmRight: You'll notice that Rodgers also was dealing with receivers that can't catch and a line that was terrible at blocking, yet he didn't throw 4 INTs (and never has in his career).


It's almost comical, really, by this point. Rodgers can routinely put a ball w/in millimeters of an already incredibly small window where only his receiver can catch it, and with enough zip on the ball so that said window won't close on him even if it's 30+ yards downfield, and James Jones or Finley in particular are almost guaranteed to display brick hands on it.

Yet, on a random 5 yard out sometime in the second half, Finley made a great diving catch on a ball he really had to stretch for. I almost think Rodgers should STOP throwing perfect passes; his guys have better luck catching tough ones.

If he were quarterback for any other team I'd have felt sorry for him. But since this was 'da bears' then no.

/da bears still suck!
 
2012-09-14 10:13:04 AM  
To be fair, Cutler really threw only 3 picks, but for the last one, that old man replacement ref was getting tired and needed to go to bed.
 
2012-09-14 10:15:25 AM  
Last night there was enough suckitude on the Bears' offense to go around for a lot of individuals.

1. Cutler was holding onto the ball WAAAAAY too long and as the game went on, you could see his desperation kick in and he was trying to fit the ball into windows that just weren't there. The Pack realized this as well...as they went into a 7-man soft zone and just baited Cutler to over-rely on his arm strength. His decision making has really regressed from his phenomenal 2008 season.

2. The O-line was a disaster. In the first half, the Pack was bringing 4, maybe 5 and running your run-of-the mill stunts and twists and the Bears o-line wasn't communicating or working together at all. In the 2nd half the o-line got better, but I blame that more on the Pack playing more coverage zone with the LBs vs. the o-line improving. I routinely see average CFB o-lines handoff and switch assignments better than the Bears' o-line did last night...horrible, horrible.

3. The WRs. Whether TD drops by Marshall, drops on easy out-route balls by Bennett...or just sitting back into routes and not coming back for the ball or following the QB has he scrambled...they were terrible, lazy an in general not prepared.

Honestly, the person I'd blame the most for the Bears train wreck is the Offensive Coordinator, Mike Tice. That unit wasn't ready to play at all. They made halftime adjustments that I think made them worse and as the Pack CLEARLY changed their gameplan in the 2nd half, Tice did virtually NOTHING in response.

The center was calling out two different blitzes. Nobody likes to do it, but it's on cutler to call a timeout. Maybe he shouldn't berate him.
 
2012-09-14 10:19:36 AM  
And BTW, the media is making a MUCH bigger deal than they need to about the Cutler yelling at his teammates thing on the sidelines, just like they did with the P. Manning/Jeff Saturday dust-up that happened a few years ago.

There isn't a semi-competitive football game IN THE WORLD where one teammate isn't yelling at another teammate for doing something stupid.

It happens. All. The. Time.

Well, he didn't really wait for the sidelines. But yes, even Rodgers was yelling at James Jones after that INT before they got off the field.

I enjoyed it because I follow some people from Chicago on Twitter and they were talking about how they agree with Cutler doing that...then Webb comes out the next series and false-starts. Way to motivate, Jay!

This covers it all. The o-line doesn't help, the receiver drops don't either, but Tice needs to revamp the offense and work with Cutler on some pre-snap reads/adjustments and get the ball out of his hands much more quickly. Why wouldn't you have 3-4 plays per game to quickly get the ball to Hester in open space? And Maybe it was situational, but they got the ball to Marshall on a couple of quick 5-10 yard plays.

He also has this thing where once he's been pressured, he'll throw lots of fadeaway passes.

Truth. There were a lot of times where just him for Orton staight up was a great deal. Actually thinking about it, given McDieinafires Draft acumen all we got out of the deal was getting rid of Cutler. He pretty much left as a free agent for all we have to show for it.

I was wondering about that one last night. I thought penalties (or the lack of call thereof) were not something you could challenge or review. Spots, fumbles, catch/interception... that's about it, now that all scores are reviewed automatically.I

Even Ed Hochuli, on his worst night ever, never threw 4 interceptions like Cutler did. You just cant throw 4 interceptions and win unless you are playing Cleveland.
