Chris Chelios burned a Jay Cutler jersey. 

Let that thought sink in and consider what it means as one Chicago legend burned a replica jersey donning the name of another Chicago treasure. 

Treasure may be too strong a word for Cutler, who is more like some dude who plays quarterback for the Bears. 

Still, this video would only be more shocking if it featured the actual Jay Cutler spontaneously combusting on the field, or not getting sacked for a loss. Either would be far more jarring to the nerves. 

Here is a video of Chelios burning a Cutler jersey, with NSFW work language. 

TMZ has a report on the moment an NHL legend decided to make his opinion known about the current quarterback who can be seen moping more often than he can be seen completing passes. 

The video was shot inside Stanley's Kitchen and Tap in Downtown Chicago -- showing Chicago Blackhawks legend Chris Chelios lighting Jay's jersey on fire while some hot chick dangles it from her fingers.

One source inside the bar tells us Chris lit the jersey then said, Cutler's "nothing but a bitch."

Let me say that burning jerseys remains one of the dumbest things fans decide to do. Nobody cares that you just destroyed the same shirt you once thought was worth spending $100 on. 

Things are a little different when it's Chelios doing the burning. 

The constant debate that rages around pretty much every NFL city is whether their respective quarterbacks are elite, or if they have what it takes to win a Super Bowl. 

With Cutler, the question comes with an added conundrum. Does anyone in the Chicago area actually like this guy?

You can hear some mighty specific things being yelled in the video. Then there are things like Smokin' Jay Cutler meme that have me thinking the Bears may have a good quarterback that shows flashes of greatness, but not one that will ever win any popularity contests.
