The idea of a full-grown male walking a purse-sized dog in public was once thought as completely unmanly.

Not anymore, people.

The infamous Jay Cutler was seen flipping the bird to the press while walking his dog, giving hope and expressing solidarity with men who have small dogs everywhere.

Just look at Cutler’s perfect dog-walking apparel. He’s got the wind-resistant shirt and sweatpants, the official Nike dog-walking tennis shoes, and the Great Choice retractable leash.

I’ve long documented how Cutler is the greatest QB to play in the NFL, but he’s also the greatest at walking dogs. Look at that dog. It’s freaking out because no one has ever walked a dog this well before.

This dog-walking act adds a whole new level of badassery that Cutler has now solely created, and it also begs the question: why haven’t we seen other NFL quarterbacks walking their dogs? (I am looking at you Aaron Rodgers.)

The correlation of dogs and winning in the NFL us undeniable. If you can’t walk a dog, you can’t play football in the NFL plain and simple. There’s no arguing that fact. Tom Brady, Ben Roethisberger, Dan Marino, Drew Brees and now Jay Cutler all own and walk their dogs and are part of the NFL QB elite.

That’s no coincidence and shouldn’t surprise anyone.

When Jay Cutler wins the MVP this season, and the Chicago Bears win the Super Bowl, everyone will know it wasn’t because of the Bears great offseason decisions, but because their QB made dog walking look badass.
