Jay Cutler: Bears Coaches Want Critics to 'Get over It,' He Has to Play First
Jay Cutler Still Getting Heat For NFC Championship Game At Combine
Jay Cutler was not supposed to be involved in any way, shape or form in the NFL Combine this year, but because perception is reality these days, Bears Head Coach Lovie Smith found himself defending his quarterback again on Sunday.
While facing the media, he once again was asked about Cutler's condition and what it means for the team moving forward. Smith and offensive coordinator Mike Martz both told everyone to "get over it" and that Cutler would be just fine.
The problem is Cutler left the game due to an injury that no one could see, including the non-judgmental camera that showed a healthy-looking Cutler not limping on the sideline, looking disinterested in the game.
The fact Cutler's knee was injured helps the situation to a degree, but the perception was Cutler didn't do enough to try and get back in the game, that he just quit.
Since that was the last game of the season, Cutler hasn't been able to come back out and show everyone up. Cutler won't have that opportunity until the 2011 season begins. Until then, Cutler and the Bears are just going to have to get used to questions.
