So, "Beat the Vikings" = "not a douchebag anymore?"

Whatever.

Tom Jackson must have gone to the Darryl Johnston School of Pulling Things Out of My Ass Based On 10 Seconds of Video.

Tom Jackson is awesome. This writers humming of Cutlers balls could set off a resonant frequency that'd bring down a skyscraper.

In the first video Cutler says fark coverage I'm going for it. This time he was lucky. Most of the time he puts himself in the running for the Jake.

Too bad the Giants dropped two easy picks on Sunday night, or we'd have had the Jake gilded in cheddar cheese.

I think a lot of the off the field / bad attitude shiat exists mostly because there's all that dead space the media needs to fill.

I love my Bears and Cutler is one hell of a quarterback, but they're going to fall off a cliff like they do every year because their average age is borderline ancient in NFL terms and they'll never overcome the injuries. I also should mention that Cutler might well be the first person in the modern pro football era to die on the field with that sieve of a line they've got there.

Yeah, why do people dump on Cutler so much but nobody spends time asking if Brandon Marshall has cleaned up his act?

I wonder if how you feel about your favorite team's quarterback correlates to your feelings about Jay Cutler.

Because, as a Chiefs fan, all I can think of is, "wait, you have a guy that actually has won playoff games, can complete third and long plays, is durable, and you complain because HE FROWNS?!? Are you farking kidding me?"

Whereas I'm betting Pats fans that have been spoiled by the Tom Brady era look down upon him with disdain.

Wow, I was not aware of that. I wasn't meaning to make light of it or anything...I do actually have an honest concern for Cutler's health out there. At the very least, he's gonna be talking like Bernie Kosar in 20 years.

Cutler is a moody biatch, but God damn does he have an arm. I don't know if anyone else can throw bullets like that these days.

Oh, I know you mean anything by that. As a fellow Bears fan, I share the concern about Cutler's health playing behind that crappy offensive line and don't understand how writers and fans continue to question his toughness with the consistent pounding he takes.

People, whether it's Tom Jackson or the regular collection of football retards who populate this tab, care WAY too much about Cutler. They want to fit him into a nice, tidy box so that their ineffective minds can process him.

I wonder if part of it is the way he left Denver. Word is that he's still disliked there, even after the Manning era started.
 
2012-11-27 10:11:40 PM
He made a peace offering during the Vikings game, now when people bring up him yelling at Jamarcus Webb others can point to him tying Webb's shoe in the huddle on Sunday.

I'm a Cutler fan because I feel like that pretty much goes with being a Bears fan if you've been following them the last few years. He makes risky throws and all that but hey, they seem to win a lot more when he's healthy and he's gotten his bell rung in more games than not in Chicago yet he has provided more of a morale fire in the huddle than any QB I can remember. Only one playoff win of four tries (or so?) but I'm not about to whine about that, because what Bears QB would I be holding him to? This is uncharted territory here.

I like Jim Miller on CSN now and I sort of liked him as a player but that was probably because I was just becoming a big fan around that time and they had that silly 13-3 2001 season. Grossman rode the D to the SB but looked like a limp rag half the time. I'll always have a soft spot for Orton, I really hoped they would snatch him up when Cutler went down last year. My dream scenario was for him to come back and take Chicago to the SB again, haha. But yeah, I'd still take Cutler over all those dudes.

I hope there's at least something exciting for the Bears at the end of the season in the form of a post-season win, although I'm fairly skeptical at this point after the Texans and 49ers games (and GB), Cutler or no. The Bears have some big wins but none of the teams they beat will be on the ticket in January, and I fear the defense will be on the fade by then, injuries reared their heads on Sunday...

True. Idiot said he had a stronger arm than Elway. Idiot pouted and whined and never smiled. I think he has the same snooty Vanderbilt attitude you see from players and fans of Duke. Ergo, Duke sucks, Vandy sucks and Cutler sucks!

The Bears are never really out of a game when Cutler is playing. And neither are their opponents.

libranoelrose: I've always thought he's not quite right in the head.


Jay Cutler I think is secretly a honey badger, and just doesn't give a shiat. He's making $10 million + to play a game he's pretty good at, and got a free degree from Vanderbilt as well. At that point who cares what some football fan thinks?
 
2012-11-28 01:50:59 AM
I like Jay. I know thats the opposite of what this site and apparently the whole internet and thinks but I think hes a pretty damn good QB. I wouldn't mind him in dallas if all else failed. I mean it would be the first case of a QB dying on national television but hey, free press!
 
2012-11-28 01:51:22 AM
Was hoping to see some charitable act of kindness that would lead me not to hate Jay Cutler anymore.

Saw three plays, one of which was a wide open reciever for a TD that he missed so badly he almost forced him to go out of bounds.

Im trying, people, I am TRYING to not hate this man.

well, you are used to dissapointment, you've had Romo for so long, Cutler wouldnt seem so bad.
 
2012-11-28 01:56:00 AM
Jay Cutler doesn't want to be the media superstar that the Manning Bros, Brady, Newton, etc are - that's not his thing, it's not his schtick. That, however, is what is expected of Quarterbacks by the media. What do people do with unknown quantities? Ridicule and abuse them - the same shiat that happens on every playground.

"They look different, let's pick on them!"

His team likes him, the receivers respect him, and he survives the failures of the line more than any other Chicago Bears QB in recent history. I'd love to see one of the Top 5 guys take the beatings he does on a weekly basis, and maintain their stats.

He wins games, that's his job. He's won 13 of his last 15 games. You won't see me getting upset about him.

Cutler is universally despised here. Tom Jackson as a Bronco's lifer and unabashed homer shares our disdain.

A lot of the local radio and beat guys say that Jay does a lot of charity work, and also does quite a bit of surprise visits to children's hospitals. He just does it without dragging the media with him.

The general consensus is that he can be a d-bag, especially when having to put up with all the ridiculous media obligations, but there are FAR worse guys in the league.

FTFY. Bipolar disorder isn't much of a problem once you get treatment. The biggest off the field headlines Marshall has gotten since he arrived in Chicago are for his charity work.

Mediocrity still gets you into the 90th percentile of Bears QBs.
 
2012-11-28 08:59:17 AM
Even though I dislike him personally, and he's easy as hell to bag on, Cutler is very quiet about his personal life.

As I understand it, he and his lady do a lot of collecting and donating for sick and hospitalized kids around the holidays, lots of toy drive type work, visiting kids in chemo/burn wards, etc.

He just does it under the radar, is all.

Durable?

Jay Cutler isn't durable. He misses time every season. He missed time in his very first season and they had to trot Jake Plummer out again.

I'm not saying he isn't tough...but he's not durable.

You could make the argument that Jay Cutler is actually the greatest QB the Bears have ever had. At the very least, he should be second behind Luckman. He's already second in TDs, should be second in yards in a game or three, and has played in just 51 games. He has a completion pct (barely) over 60%. His yards per game is best in franchise history. He's tied with Bob Avellini for most Game Winning Drives (10!). And he's done all of this with offensive lines that at their best have been charitably referred to as "patchwork". Not to mention the litany of afterthoughts he's had as receiving targets.
If Cutler and Marshall last three more seasons in Chicago, they are going to own the Bears record books for QB and WR.

Heh. Like LL said, the Bears don't really do great quarterbacks. Cutler's place in franchise history is as much an indictment on their 50+ years of mediocrity under center as it is a comment on his ability.

Oh as a Packers fan, I am quite familiar with that list, and enjoy using it as needed, particularly the '92-Present section.

//I actually have a lot of respect for the Bears fans and franchise, but poking fun at rivals is what sports threads are all about.
