Finally, Broncos coach Josh McDaniels and Bears quarterback Jay Cutler have found something on which they can agree.
Neither man apparently cares much for NFL Network.
On Friday, McDaniels took a shot at NFLN after the league-owned network broadcast prerecorded audio of McDaniels dropping an “F” bomb while yelling at his players.
On Sunday, Cutler “angrily shoved” an NFL Network microphone away from his body after an ugly 36-10 loss to the Vikings, per ESPNChicago.com.
Cutler later conducted a small press conference in a room adjacent to the Bears’ locker room.
“It’s a tough one,” Cutler said. “We didn’t expect this, [we] thought we had a good week. We didn’t play up to our standards.”
Cutler threw two more interceptions, giving him 20 for the year. As to the first one, which was picked off in the end zone by Cedric Griffin, Cutler was concise.
“It was an interception, yep,” Cutler said.
The second pick wasn’t Cutler’s fault — the receiver was hit (apparently early) and the ball bounced into the air. Defensive end Jared Allen came up with the second interception of his career.
