It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
In 2001, David Terrell was chosen by the Bears as the eighth overall pick after leaving Michigan after his junior year. He finished his career with 128 catches for 1,602 yards and nine touchdowns. The big problem – those numbers were accumulated over parts of four seasons. He was cut by the Bears in 2004 and later picked up and dumped by the Patriots and Broncos. David Terrell was a bust.
Terrell recently spoke with RedEyeChicago.com and played the blame game as to why his NFL career didn’t work out. Red Eye listed Terrell as one of the Bears’ bigger busts, and he was not having it. To boil it down, Terrell put the blame on a broken foot and a quarterback carousel in Chicago during his four years. When describing his fourth year:
“Man, I led the league in like every category basically until Rex broke his foot. When Rex broke his foot, after that, the season was over. I caught, I mean, I had nine different quarterbacks after Rex Grossman. I caught a ball from nine different quarterbacks in one year. Did you forget that?”
And while that may be fair, no other team thought he was worthy of an active roster spot. But Terrell went on to say what he’d give to play with current Bears quarterback Jay Cutler.
“I would have cut off both my balls. I’d give those up, no problem. You could have neutered me. I woulda been neutered with a smile. S***, man, for real.”
Cutler was not drafted by the Bears until 2006. Terrell’s balls were not in the league that year, but Denver gave them a try again in 2007.

BEST OF MAXIM
Generally regarded as a major bust, wide receiver David Terrell spent four disappointing years in Chicago, totaling just 1,602 receiving yards after becoming the eighth overall pick in 2001.
Following years of obscurity, Terrell recently came out of the woodwork to defend himself, blaming others -- notably the Bears' quarterbacks -- for his lackluster outings.
Former Chicago Bears wide receiver David Terrell was labeled a bust by RedEye and he wasn’t too pleased about it. Terrell actually emailed RedEye and told them to call him so they could discuss why he wasn’t a bust and so on. There are a few interesting quotes from the piece and it is definitely worth a read.
His argument for why he isn’t a bust you ask?
My opinion? I don’t...
Former Chicago Bears wide receiver David Terrell would have given up pretty much anything to have had the chance to play with quarterback Jay Cutler.
In 2001 wide receiver David Terrell was the 8th overall selection and the #1 receiver selected in the NFL draft by the Chicago Bears. Needless to say the expectations in Chitown were high for Terrell after being the first player in Michigan history to have multiple 1000-yard seasons. Things didn’t quite pan out the way the Bears or Terrell expected, and four years later after a...
Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler sees himself making almost as big a commitment on the football field as he recently made off it.
Cutler, who recently married actress Kristin Cavallari, calls the new Bears offense one that will require time to master.
A lot of time.
''Really whenever you want to get into it, it's a three-year process to learn an offense,'' Cutler...
2013 is really a make or break year for Jay Cutler and the Chicago Bears. The front office has done their best to improve that train wreck of an offensive line in front of him. They signed an all pro, another guy who’s decent, jettisoned the 1st round pick bust and spent their 1st round on the position this year.
He’s had Brandon Marshall, a legit #1 target, back with again for...
If you thought Jay Cutler would get through his weekend wedding to Kristin Cavallari without making a couple Cuts faces…
Jay Cutler says marriage has done one thing for him: the Chicago Bears quarterback feels much older.
''I feel old, I really do,'' Cutler said Tuesday in confirming that he and actress Kristin Cavallari had recently married. ''It feels good.''
He didn't offer any details of the wedding, saying only: ''It went off without a hitch, so that...
The wedding was shrouded in secrecy — and the application for their June 7 marriage license was public— but it wasn't until Saturday that Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler and reality TV person Kristin Cavallari really felt like a married couple, as they exchanged vows in front of family and friends.
The couple — whose wedding bands were a glittering diamond ring...
It’s all over Juan…
Reality star Kristin Cavallari and Chicago Bears Quartergback Jay Cutler made their way to the Woodmont Christian Church in Nashville, Tennesse with family and friends this past weekend for Cutty’s big day. Glad to see Jay finally smiling…sort of.

Jay Cutler Joins Teammates at Fundraising Dinner
Jay Cutler and Kristin Cavallari had their wedding ceremony in Nashville over the weekend. The Daily Mail came through with photos, which is helpful for the all-important task of laughing at things Cutty does. Some folks have been gagging on Cutler for having a one-day growth of face scruff at his wedding, but I have a hard time mocking him for that, and it doesn’t take much for...
