Foot … you know mouth.
Mouth … foot.
Last week, Jay Cutler earned a profile in ambiguity on these pages. Last night, Jay Cutler earned a victory over his former team at Invesco Field. In typical Cutler fashion, his mouth had a near perfect rating. A few weeks after saying the Denver fans aren’t as good as the Bears fans — even comparing them to a “6″ on a scale of one to ten — the Broncos had good fans again.
“I thought it was going to be like this. They got good fans here. A lot of boos — they got pretty loud there at one point. It was what we kind of prepared for.”
That’s a little bit different tune than “It’s a lot [different]. Denver’s like a 6 and Chicago’s like a 9. It’s quite a bit different. Just the fans and how passionate they are, that’s probably the biggest difference.”
Whatever. Jay Cutler has a stupid mouth. After all, only a stupid mouth would describe Brandon Marshall as a good guy off the field:
“He’s such a talent and he’s such a good guy off the field, I just want to see him get back out there and start playing again because he’s good for the game. He’s exciting for the game.”
Yes, Brandon Marshall is such a good guy off the field — unless you’re law enforcement personnel, a girlfriend, an advocate of sobriety, a fiance or a hotel room television.
Also fun is Cutler’s synopsis on life in the NFL …
“It’s a business. You never know exactly what’s going to happen. There’s coaching changes, there’s player changes every day. You just have to stay in the game and wherever you land, you land.”
You have to love the ignorance and complete disregard for reality with that quote. It’s as if Cutler didn’t demand a trade out of Denver because his feelings got hurt. At any rate, Jay Cutler is here and Jay Cutler wants you to know the state of his union.
“I’m happy I’m in Chicago. We got a great thing going right now and we just need to keep heading that way.”
Lord knows when Jay Cutler is not happy, you’ll be the first to know about it.
