PLAYERS: Jay Cutler
TEAMS: Chicago Bears

From Pro Football Zone:

Former Chicago Bears defensive end Adewale Ogunleye was a guest on WSCR-AM’s the Mully & Hanley Show on Friday and said that Jay Cutler crossed the line when he bumped left tackle J’Marcus Webb when he was coming off the field this past Thursday night.

“If you are not doing your job, yeah, someone should be allowed to get in your face,” said Ogunleye, via the Chicago Tribune. “But if you live in a glass house, you can’t throw any stones. So the way I am looking at the game, no one is yelling at Jay when he is throwing the ball (four) times to their defenders. And you’ve got to have some sense of accountability. At the end of the day, you start losing the respect of the offensive line when publicly you’re bumping people and yelling at them in their face. I don’t think it is the right thing to do.”

Ogunleye was surprised to see Cutler act the way he did.

“To go and bump another player, you know the only reason Jay Cutler can bump on offensive lineman and not get his butt beat is because he is the star quarterback of the Chicago Bears,” Ogunleye said. “If this is in the street, and you bump a man that is 300 pounds, Jay is in serious trouble.

“The team is going to have to police itself. Maybe Brian (Urlacher) will have to say something. The more you yell at them, the more pressure you are putting on your own teammate.”

Ogunleye says people love both Peyton Manning and Tom Brady even though they get on their teammates, because they don’t go over the top the way Cutler did.

“People really like them,” Ogunleye said. “I’ve met Tom Brady many times and played against him. Genuinely, he is a good person and you want to see him successful. The problem with Jay is we’re not sure about his emotions. The only thing we see is when he is really angry. Even when he does a really good job he doesn’t show a sense of happiness.

“There is no good to Jay, there is no smiling. All we see is when he is pissed off, when he is angry and that reflects in the way people might view him in the locker room. But a guy like Peyton Manning and Tom Brady, genuinely they are nice people and they overextend themselves. Tom Brady can be the biggest diva in the world – he has that right, he has won Super Bowls – but he is not that guy. I think that is why he is even more likeable.”

There’s no doubt that Cutler has to change his attitude.  It’s clear to me that he doesn’t deal with adversity in a positive way that can help his team get through tough situations. Cutler completely melted down on Thursday and continued to make bad decisions with the football.

  • Yeah, well, really, who cares what he thinks? He's not even on the Bears anymore and there was no doubt a good reason that he's not. Tell him to go mind whatever is his own current business and leave Jay Cutler alone. It's frustrating for a quarterback when he is the leader of the offensive line and the offense isn't doing their job. Webb has never been a great asset to the team and frankly, I don't know why he's still on it either.
  • Ogunleye is a has been who didn't live up to his hype while in Chicago. Dan Marino was another QB who called out bad players. The only unfortunate thing is Cutler was caught on camera, and funny that no one mentions the big grin on Webb's face as Jay walked away.
  • The big grin was because he knew he could have beat his ass for breakfast, lunch AND DINNER. You know the truth !!!
  • Frankly, I believe that no good leader calls anyone out in public. If you have a beef with the way your teammate is playing, talk about it on the sidelines, privately. If it can wait until after the game, take him out for a beer, and, have a one on one discussion with his (perceived) shortcomings.
    Personally, I have been missing Jim McMahon for way too many years. There seems to be a quarterback curse on this team. I wish we could clone the punky QB.
  • This is a great article. Ogunleye brings up a very valid point. Cutler sucks. He sucked in Denver and he brought his suck to Chicago. How many times are we going to hear "If he only had a better offensive line" or "The receivers are dropping too many passes"? If the O line is so bad how come Ike Forte can run all over the place. Cutler doesn't have what it takes and he never will. If I were one of the lineman I would let the defensive tackle have a free shot at the little whiner. Don't forget, he QUIT during the biggest game he has played, oh my poor knee.
  • So Cutler sucked in Denver, is that what going to 2 pro bowls in 3 years means? How can Forte run all over the place with a bad line? The exact same way Walter Payton did, skill and talent! Cutler quit during the biggest game of his career, again, NO he did not quit, the coaches and medical team benched him for his own good!
    If you are going to bash a player, at least have the correct facts!
  • I concur.
  • Cutler whined while he was in Denver and he hasn't stopped.
  • probably louder than his new baby.
  • Bottom line he "SUCKS"!Sucked in Denver and sucked even more in Chicago!
  • Seriously, put Tom Brady and Peyton Manning behind this Bears offensive line and there wouldn't be a discussion. The owners of the Pats and Broncos/Colts would not let Webb play on their team. That is the real difference. Bears fans continually watch internal squabling between their players, because of product put on the field. Cutler is the best of the last 25 QB's we have watched in Chicago, but behind an inferior line, he just becomes a head case worrying about who is gonna hit him next.

There's a surprisingly large number of rookie quarterbacks at the helm early on this football season, and the biggest reason could be the lack of good veteran signal callers.
