After a pretty mediocre performance by Jay Cutler in his first preseason game with the Bears, he was already complaining about Devin Hester not doing more to break up the interception Cutler threw.

Cutler is known for speaking his mind and not caring who he offends, but Cutler is the new guy. He should not already be making enemies. Hester said he was upset after hearing what Cutler said about him, and he should be. If Cutler has a problem with Hester, he should tell Hester, not the media.

After the comment Cutler came to Hester and told him that it came off wrong.

“It wasn’t criticism or anything like that,” Hester said. “He was saying, you are not a 6-8 receiver. You can’t go up and get everything. But we know you are the type of receiver if we throw it out there, you will go get it.”

Maybe that’s the truth, and I hope that it is. I just want Cutler to shut up and play football and perform like the Pro Bowl QB he is. Wait until you get wins and more respect from the players and fans before you start saying that stuff.

It is only the first preseason game. Teams are never at full strength on the first preseason game, so don’t expect the Bears to be.

This is not something the Bears want in the news, but this is one of the things that came with signing Cutler. This will probably just blow over, but Cutler non-believers will feed on this. The only way to silence the haters is to have a great performance next game. That next game is Saturday night against the Giants.

And Bears fans, your last QB threw three picks for Denver.
