We’ve done a fair bit of Jay Cutler bashing on this here blog. I’ve decided that I won’t dedicate an entire post to his incredible five interception performance last night during the Chicago Bears’ 10-6 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. I’ll just say this, Cutler sucked and he did it in spectacular fashion.
No, this post has nothing to do with the fact that Cutler went 29-for-52 (55.8 percent) for 307, no touchdowns and five interceptions. I won’t even mention his 33.6 quarterback rating from Thursday night or the fact that he now leads the NFL with 17 interceptions (against just 14 touchdowns). And nowhere in this post will I refer to his NFL-leading nine red zone interceptions, or his 76.0 quarterback rating for the season (placing him 24th out of the 33 quarterbacks who qualify). Nope, I won’t even put any of that in here.
What this post is about is Cutler’s comments following last night’s loss, captured by Matt Maiocco of the Santa Rosa Press Democrat. Apparently Cutler overheard George Devine, Jr. of Fox Sports Radio critiquing his performance. Devine mentioned that Cutler could have easily had several more interceptions on the night because he “lollipopped” some other throws. Cutler, completely in line with his nature and reputation, responded poorly. Maiocco writes:
“as luck would have it, Cutler was squeezing past Devine on his way to a post-game interview. Cutler heard the remark and suggested Devine do something that – to my knowledge – is anatomically impossible.”
Well why would Cutler ask him to do something that he couldn’t possibly do. Cutler went to Vanderbilt, didn’t he have to take some intro to biology classes as pre-requisites? What could he have possibly thought Devine could have done that, in actuality, he couldn’t?
(Friend whispering in ear…)
Oh. Oh I see. Yikes. Well that’s not polite at all. Certainly not becoming of the face of an NFL franchise. Jay Cutler, you sir are lude and uncouth. Lude and uncouth I say!
