Jay Cutler- Looking For The SpotlightOctober 19, 2008
Apparently being known as the second best QB in the AFC West wasn’t good enough for Cutler. No, Cutler was unhappy receiving so little press because of it. Thank GOD that he finally chose to do something about that, while in the process proving what many fans have begun to realize. Yes, while being only the 2nd best QB in the AFC West, he is undoubtedly the cockiest and most egotistical.
What’s more surprising is that it took this long to become nationally recognized. I’ve read a number of sources that revealed the true nature of Cutler’s I’m-better-than-you attitude (commonly shortened to “punk”), but only now is that true nature coming to light. Here’s some of Jay Cutler’s finest moments, in case you missed them:
- Cutler was suspended for 1-game at Vanderbilt after being issued four citations for property damage, underage drinking, and evading arrest.
- In a 2006 blow-out loss against the San Diego Chargers, Cutler is seen grabbing his crotch while staring down the Chargers sideline, reportedly talking smack after a failed 4th-down conversion. Philip Rivers and Company fire back. Cutler is then seen wandering the sideline pouting.
- Less than a year later, Cutler said of Rivers (on The Best Damn Sports Show), “I don’t like how he carries himself. I don’t like some of the stuff he does on the field.”
- In a Sporting News article last week, Cutler said of Hall of Famer John Elway, and every other QB in the NFL, “I have a stronger arm than John, hands down. I’ll bet on it against anybody’s in the league.” Consistently overthrowing your WR’s isn’t something to be gloating about in a national publication. Besides, everyone knows JaMarcus Russell has a stronger arm and look at where that is getting him.
- After fumbling against the Chargers in Week 2 of this year, Cutler stated, “It just happens sometimes, happens to everybody, not my fault.” Not your fault? You roll out, untouched, and drop the ball, and it’s not your fault? How immature is that?
- In a commercial filmed in June and that premiered last month, Cutler, a diabetic, promotes McDonalds, apparently the only known vaccine for diabetes in impressionable children.
- Cutler has already written a Hall of Fame induction speech that his mom said is much better than any QB in the Hall of Fame. OK, I can’t prove this last one, but I wouldn’t be surprised.
I find it appalling that a a guy like Cutler, a guy without a winning record in the NFL, can talk so much crap yet Rivers, with great stats and actual playoff victories, is treated like a villain in the media because he waved bye-bye after Cutler’s punk reaction to getting detroyed on the field on Christmas eve. Most anyone who has come in contact with Jay Cutler has learned how big of a punk he is. In comparison to Cutler, I’ll stand by Philip River’s reputation on and off the field every time.
