Jay Cutler and the Bears must be anxious for Sunday to arrive so they can stop answering questions about last Thursday. Not only did they lose to the division rival Packers after talking trash leading up to the game, but Cutler has been under a tremendous amount of scrutiny for pushing teammate J’Marcus Webb and screaming at him during the game. The Bears quarterback says he regrets the pushing part, but not the yelling.

“I probably shouldn’t have bumped him, I’ll go with that. As far as me yelling at him and trying to get him going in the game, I don’t regret that,” Cutler told ESPN 1000 in Chicago according to Pro Football Talk. “I’ve talked about it with the offensive line, each of them individually, and it is what it is. I think it’s been blown up probably a bit bigger than all of us expected. At the same time, that’s what you have to expect out of the media.”

The problem with that is people in the media aren’t the only ones who have criticized Cutler for his behavior. Even his own teammate, cornerback D.J. Moore, said issues like that should be handled behind closed doors.

As we said before, Cutler had a right to be frustrated since he was sacked seven times and took a beating throughout the entire game. Professional football players don’t need to be babied, but acting the way Cutler did on Thursday can result in locker room tension — whether the media is responsible for fueling it or not.
