Lets Blame Jay Cutler For The Jets Losing Too!

New, 1 comment

Oh, football and your blood-thirsty fans. Jay Cutler gets pummeled in the first half by the Green Bay Packers (2 Sacks, 1 INT, Total Suck) and all the Chicago Bears fans can think about doing after the game is blaming him for not playing more. He was still upright on the sidelines and not appropriately mangled on the field a la Joe Theismann, so obviously he's a wuss and a quitter and is at fault for blowing the Bears' Super Bowl chances.

I suppose we should expect this from Chicago sports fans.

Burning Cutler's jersey after the game (a ritual stolen from the even more downtrodden Cleveland fans) is just another in a line of misplaced blame. Hey, I know, let's vilify some dorky kid for reaching over the fence and catching a foul ball and not the 27 runs the Cubs gave up in the seventh inning!

Fact: Jay Cutler did not allow the Packers to score 14 quick points. Fact: Jay Cutler had a passer rating of 31.8 on 6 of 14 throws while his replacement's replacement went for 153 yards on 13-20 passing and at least made the Bears NFC championship game performance respectable instead of something fit for skinning and laying on in front of a warm fire. (That's a bear rug reference in case you are from Chicago and your mind is still a bit chilled.)

Fine, fans are fans and Lord knows Chicago doesn't have the Dumb Ass market all to themselves. But how about Cutler's NFL peers?

Darnell Dockett (tweet) and Kerry Rhodes (tweet), after the embarrassing performances your Cardinals defense gave this season you are going to talk shit to anyone else about quitting on their team and fans? Really? I hope those guys never leave a football game on anything but a stretcher. All-in, baby! Twitter Heroes FTW!!

So lets review: The guy was playing like crap and went out of the game in a fashion that wasn't manly enough for the Home Theater Warrior crowd or some other football players (who really don't have a leg to stand on when it comes to manning-up) and so clearly the Packers going to the Super Bowl should be blamed on Cutler.

Got it.
