Jay Cutler gets a ‘kick’ out of the Smokin’ Jay Cutler pictures

For those of you who have yet to experience it, Smokin’ Jay Cutler is one of the funniest bits to hit the internet this year. There’s something about the looks Jay Cutler gives that makes it hilarious to photoshop a cigarette into his mouth. In fact, Cutler himself even agrees. “I know a few of those guys,” Cutler said on Showtime’s Inside the NFL this week according to...

A group that came into the season with some question marks is supplying plenty of answers...

Contract Extension Coming For Jay Cutler After The Season?

Tillman right on about family matters

Charles Tillman said that if his wife goes into labor Sunday, he won't play in the Chicago Bears game against Houston. You know what that makes him? Good. Very, very good.

He said that football players should plan their "nine-month family expansion activities...

Charles Tillman Should Be Applauded, Not Criticized, for Potentially Missing Game to See Child’s Birth

There are some moments in a man’s life that are cherished. Believe it or not, however, some might say that playing the Houston Texans in Week 10 of the NFL schedule is not one of those moments, at least not compared to say, seeing the birth of a child.
