Jay Cutler's definitely soft.
That's the most positive thing you've ever said about McNabb.

Really America? Really?

Look, generally speaking I find Culter a sullen douche but if he couldn't plant his foot because, well, his knee wasn't stable, then wtf is he supposed to do?

Oh and didn't MJD sit out the last 2 games of the season with a knee injury while Jacksonville was in a playoff hunt?

This irrational hate for Jay Culter is mind boggling.
Something of the sort. I never expected that from MJD, I thought he was as humble as they get. One to be talking though... considering Cutler's appeared in more games.

That poll is hilarious lol. What's even better is... you can pretty much reverse-rank that into season performances.

that says a lot right there, but then again i do believe it. A girl at work today wore her "Big Douche" jersey and all i could do is shake my head. I guess some women are attracted to a serial rapist. Big Douche needs to go buy a faster bike

After watching the J-E-T-S shutout the stealers in the second half last night, all i could do is think how sweet its going to be when Aaron Rogers throws 5 TD passes against them in Dallas.

don't read so much into the 2nd half yesterday... when teams have huge leads they tend to relax a little. it's human nature.

plus the first jets TD that started swinging the momentum a little happened because a steelers defender fell down.

not to mention that rodgers had a pretty shitty game after the first drive yesterday, and the packers needed a last minute defensive stop to prevent the bears 4th string punter from tying the game.

i think it'll be a very close game, probably more high scoring than most will think.

It should also be noted that Michael Vick has tried and failed to kill humans within the last calendar year.

The peak of his career was the day he played on the broken ankle (November 2002). I respected him then.

Jew York Jets lol...

Funny, especially because the majority of my friends who are Jets fans aren't even Jewish (despite being from the Boca Raton area).

I don't have a good source but I heard on ESPN tonight that Drew Brees played the last 6 games with a torn MCL...but it was "low grade."

I'll be the first one to say that I'm not a Cutler fan and when I talk about him, I'm often negative. I think he chokes in the difficult situations; red zone interception, pressure from the defensive line, big time games on TV, etc.
And say what you want about the O-Line, Caleb Hanie somehow avoided pressure by stepping up in the pocket and completing passes...something Cutler didn't do all day.

But whatever, if he was hurt, so be it. But it just seems that he wasn't interested in the game. Maybe the NFL is different and you dont' need to be up cheering for your team, but it would be nice to see him limp over to meet the offense at the sideline.

Then again, maybe he did and the media ignored that and focused on the other stuff. It's hard to feel sorry for him though since his attitude and demeanor creates this situation, even if it is unfair.

A.D.D. post over.

For what it's worth:

Hanie refutes critics who say Cutler didn't help him

I mean, really. Are we going to trust a Fox broadcast to give us the full picture of what really happened on those sidelines? Fuck no.

And here's an article with some quotes from Lovie and Jerry Angelo.

Smith defends Cutler after confirming MCL sprain - Chicago Breaking Sports

Quote:
"Jay didn't take himself out of the game. If you're going to attack somebody, you should be attacking me as the head football coach, and our medical staff. We're the ones. He wanted to go back in. He was injured and went back in in the second half. I see it the complete opposite of how it's been portrayed right now."
Of course that's what the coach is going to say. Do all he can to take the heat off of his player. But, you know what, I'm going to believe him.

Quote:
"For guys to take a shot that weren't there, to try and look at his body language and figure out whether he was hurt because he was on the sideline or 'what I would do in that situation,' you don't know what you would do in that situation. The guys that know what he was going through in there were the guys on the sideline. And go to our players and you can see exactly what went on. So I have no questions about anything of that."
I think LuckyNumber7 writes Lovie Smith's speeches. But, again, I'm going to agree.

Quote:
"Surprised," he said. "I haven't seen it before. Seems like if you were in that fraternity, you would be stepping up for your fellow man, especially when you don't know."
Quote:
"I think it's crap," Angelo said. "I thought they were a union. If that's the way they unionize themselves, they've got bigger issues than the one they have with the owners. I'm very disappointed."

Angelo was asked why people constantly point the finger at Cutler.

"I can't answer that," Angelo said. " I don't create perceptions. You create perceptions."

"I certainly don't like what was said. I take that personally, too. He's our quarterback. We wouldn't have been where we're at without him, and I want that to be made clear. We stand by him. Nobody's perfect. His play's not perfect. He's not perfect. There's nobody in this room or in this league that is, either."
It's a pretty simple statement, and overused. We've been hearing it from parents and teachers since we can remember. But it's so fucking true. Nobody's perfect. Preach it, Jerry.

Let's go. Roll on 2011. Jay Cutler will rise again.
