I’ve already shown you how Jay Cutler dominated against the Falcons and the Saints, and how he is a much better and more balanced QB than to Aaron Rodgers, but what you may not also know about our boy Cutler is he is also the NFL’s best running back.
Surprising, I know, but that doesn’t take away from how completely and ridiculously true it is. Cutler has 853 career rushing yards to go with five rushing touchdowns.
I think it’s about time for Cutler-Payton comparisons.Jay Cutler vs Adrian Peterson
Adrian Peterson can probably run faster than Cutler can, but can Peterson run backwards at the same speed he can forward? That’s the true question that NFL scouts should ask and determine at the combine.
If they had asked this question, they would have found out that Cutler can and does…with grace.
This just blows my mind. I am used to and admire the dominating 107-yard, o-touchdowns, plus one or multiple interceptions a game, and the 46.7 passer rating that Cutler works so hard for; but running backwards is not something I thought Cutler could do and do well.
For that, Jay Cutler, Prince of Dominance, I salute you.
Compare that run to Peterson’s against the Cleveland Browns:
First off, I highly doubt the validity of this video. There is no way a talented and feared team like the Cleveland Browns would allow the Vikings to be winning by 14. The Browns have never been that bad of a team.
Secondly, at the 18 second mark we see that the Cowboys are beating the Buccaneers in the 4th quarter. We all know this couldn’t have happened because having Tony Romo on your team automatically allows no good thing to EVER happen.
Score: Cutler 1 – NFL 0Jay Cutler vs Peyton Hillis
Peyton Hillis may have more Madden covers than Cutler (can we get a petition going to get Cutler on the cover of Madden ’13?), but what he doesn’t have is the wide open running room Cutler has to run. It may look easy, but believe me kids, it’s not.
If you look at the replay of the run, you can see Cutler switches the ball to the opposite side the defender is on. Very smart move.
Now, if only Aaron Rodgers knew how to switch it up when it came to throwing the ball to receivers…
Disregard the facts that Peyton Hillis ran for 1,117 yards and 11 touchdowns last season, and the fact that he just toppled over six St. Louis Rams defensive players (I mean, they are Rams players; I, along with my 124 lb physique, could do that), and notice that Hillis had to work for that measly nine yards when Cutler ran 25 yards like a breeze.
Brain over brawn. Jay Cutler dominates!
Final Score: Jay Cutler 2- NFL-0
Jay Cutler’s dominant stats after four weeks:
- Passer Rating: 77.8
- Yards: 960
- TDs: 5
- INTs: 0 (NFL has STILL failed to fix the typo that shows Cutler having 4 interceptions. I don’t know what type of business the NFL runs, but it isn’t one based on truth and accuracy.)
