Why the ?

I was thinking, and said, the same thing.

There is not a more hated man in Chicago right now than Jay Cutler.

I guess I just didn't expect the animosity to be that widespread, but, as a Packers fan, I guess I wasn't watching the game all that objectively. I just assumed Cutler was legitimately injured (Which he might have been). Deion Sanders and Tom Jackson both just said the same thing (though not as bluntly): Perception's a bitch.

The animosity is strong. Very strong.

Personally, I've dusted off the ol' six string and have gone back to work on a song I started around this time last year. It's called "Someone Still Loves You, Jay Cutler."

It's a work in progress. Sort of a country-tinged ballad. Fingerpicked. Standard little major chord progression: D, E, G, D.

Cutler's just hard to read. I know he's been accused of looking like he doesn't care before (Jim Mora Sr.'s commentary right after the 2009 season-opener was particularly scathing).

Wait I'm not quite getting this...

Why is Cutler so hated? I mean.. what difference does it make? Jay Cutler with an injured knee in sub-20 degree weather or a healthy Caleb Hanie who did a spectacular job save the pick-6.

The verdict on Cutler will depend on the severity of the injury. If he has a serious knee problem (which seems unlikely based on how he was moving around the sidelines), people may be forgiving. If he has only a minor sprain, then his reputation will never recover. If there's any jargon-quality in football that the media and most fans seem to admire, it is "toughness," and Cutler is in serious danger of being labeled as weak.

This injury thing is really covering up the fact that he got exposed by Green Bay in the first half.

I just wish he would walk around the sideline or talk to Hanie or do something besides stand on the sideline with that stupid look on his face. I mean, if he was injured I know he's not going to jump up and down with excitement like Rodgers was. But come on...talk to your teammates, get jacked up.

"This isn't Detroit man...this is the Super Bowl!"

How is this eluding people?

The man left the NFC championship game, at home, against a hated rival. One of the biggest games in the history of the franchise. He wasn't carted off the field. He wasn't on crutches. He was seen riding the stationary bicycle. Many people think he should have manned up and continued to play.

False.

As I said earlier, if he wins a Super Bowl, this is forgotten and will be merely a footnote. It's become a cliche now in the sporting world, but people like a comeback story. Jay is knocked down right now. But if he climbs to the top and brings a title to Chicago, this is all but erased and his reputation is restored.

A lot of Bears fans are furious right now. But a lot of Bears fans are also capable of forgiveness and love. Just gotta give it some time. And a shiny silver Lombardi trophy.

Cmon now, quit trying to make a scapegoat out of Cutler.

Are you a doctor? Did you examine Jay Cutler after his injury? Are you Jay Cutler? Do you know how much pain he was in? Do you know if he was able to run? Do you know how it felt?

Manned up and continued to play. Easy for everyone else to say. All the fans, sitting on their sofa in their nice cozy warm homes.

Those players are tough as nails. When they go down, it's something more serious than a little boo-boo. They take abusive punishment on the field, and you don't even see them wince or shiver from the wind-chilled 8 degree weather. Which, by the way, will absolutely make your leg lock up if there is any sort of inflamation around the knee.

This is ridiculous. Anyways, Hanie did a great job, not as though Cutler would've done much better.

Wait, he's the one defending Cutler.

Also, my home is goddamn freezing, it's negative 5 out right now. And I don't even have a couch.

Oh, well then my point stands for anybody who currently hates Jay Cutler in Chicago

Sorry GAF if your intent was misunderstood.
