David Banks-US PRESSWIRE
Jay Cutler can be Jeklle and Hyde in the press conference room.
Jay Cutler is that guy in your pick-up football game at the park who arguably has the best talent of everybody, but nobody wants to pick him because of his whiny, self-destructive behavior.
If you can't relate then you might be that guy.
Cutler's juvenile behavior off the field often seems to grab headlines. Most recently, Cutler got into a petty back-and-forth with Dan Pompei of the Chicago Tribune.
Asked by Pompei if it was possible to target WR Brandon Marshall too much, Cutler said, "No."
Asked if Marshall is getting a lot of defensive attention, Cutler responded, "What kind of attention."
Told "extra coverage," Cutler said, "what coverage?"
Pompei changed tactics and asked if it was better to throw to someone else if Marshall is getting extra coverage.
"I need to know the specifics," Cutler said. "Like, what are you getting (in coverage)? I don't know. It depends what coverage it is. It depends on a lot of things. There's a lot of variables. You can't just make a vague statement...It depends what route it is, what coverage it is, what's the down and distance? There's a lot of things that go into it."
Asked if it was simply worthwhile to risk forcing the ball into coverage sometimes, Cutler said, "Like I said, it depends on the situation."
Pompei then said, "Thanks for your enlightenment."
"Thank you," he said. "Thank you for your vague question. I'm sure you'll be able to get a lot out of that."
