Jay Cutler’s rendition of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” wasn’t too good

One of the most commonly heard criticisms of Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has to do with his aloof personality.

Cutler has never been the kind of rah-rah leader that many people want to see in a quarterback and many have asked to see more emotion from Cutler in 2012. If Cutler’s performance of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” on Saturday afternoon at Wrigley Field is any indication, those people are going to be disappointed.

The Chicago Tribune has video of the whole thing and it isn’t very good. Cutler maintains a monotone throughout the performance, which can’t really be called singing since there’s not even a cursory attempt at melody, pitch or anything else commonly found in singing. He also doesn’t seem too confident of all the words, although he saves himself a bit by nailing the “Let’s get some runs!” at the conclusion of the song.

While this is good for a laugh, it obviously has nothing to do with Cutler’s ability to lead the Bears’ offense this season unless Mike Tice’s offense requires him to memorize song lyrics to call plays. We’re guessing that it doesn’t and that the Bears will only be looking to Cutler to throw the ball with power and accuracy.

That he can do, as evidenced by the strike he threw with the first pitch before the Cubs game.

    How many teams without McDaniels at the helm would pass on Cutler?

    His rendition of “Take Me Out of the Ballgame” is quite effective.

    Im a huge Cutler fan, and this is just who this guy is. This is why his rivalry with Rivers was blown up so much. Rivers is the exact opposite, had he stayed in Denver, there clashes would probably have dwarfed the Manning-Brady saga in due time.

    I cant wait for the season to start so Cutler can show everybody why Chicago spent 2 first round picks for him. Now he has weapons

    I don’t care how bad he sings. He can sing the 7th inning at Wrigley for the next year if he wins a Super Bowl this season.
