Things weren’t going Jay Cutler’s way.
So he didn’t mind making someone else’s life miserable too.
As he was being sacked seven times in a 23-10 loss to the Packers, the Bears quarterback took time to chew out his offensive line, with cameras catching him bumping left tackle J’Marcus Webb and telling him “get your f—– head into the game.’’
“I care about this,’’ Cutler said of the incident with Webb, via Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times. “This isn’t just a hobby for me. If we’re not doing things the right way, I’m going to say something. If they want a quarterback that doesn’t care then they better get someone else.’’
Brow-beating his blockers is nothing new to Cutler, who took the chance before the opener to pound them into the ground, to make sure they knew he was good and they weren’t.
“We can only do as much as they can handle,’’ Cutler said of his line. “If they can only block three-step drops, we can only throw three-step passes. We’re limited to what they can do and as of now, they’ve been holding up really well.
“We’ve got some guys that can play football on the outside. There’s no doubt about that. It’s gonna hopefully make my job easier; being able to get them the ball, let them work. Up front I think the guys know that there’s some pressure on them because Matt Forte can run if we give him holes. If I get the guys the ball on the outside and we hold up enough time we can make some good plays. So it’s gonna be fun to watch.’’
If by fun you mean throwing four picks and completing 40.7 percent of your passes, yeah, that was a real hoot.
