Brandon Marshall wants Jay Cutler to keep being Jay Cutler

AP

Amid talk that Bears quarterback Jay Cutler’s sideline blowup at left tackle J’Marcus Webb could split divide the Chicago locker room, Bears receiver Brandon Marshall says everyone should accept Cutler for who he is.

Marshall, a close friend of Cutler’s since their days together in Denver, told reporters today Cutler is a good guy with a fiery approach to the game, and Cutler doesn’t need to change.

“What people need to understand is everyone’s different,” Marshall said. “Jay’s who he is. Whenever you get outside of yourself, I think that’s when you create problems. You have to be who you are. So when Jay is not fiery, that’s when I’m gonna have a problem. I’m gonna want to play with a different quarterback.”

Marshall said the reason Cutler was upset on the sideline during the Bears’ Thursday night loss to the Packers is that Cutler is passionate about the game and wants to win.

“That’s the guy I want to play for,” Marshall said of Cutler. “We have to be productive. We have to make sure we’re communicating the right way. I think Jay is learning how to communicate with different guys. The things that go on in our locker room, we try to keep in house.”

Unfortunately, Cutler didn’t keep his criticisms of Webb in house. He screamed at him on the sideline for all to see.

  1. I think Jay needs to stop acting like a baby with poopy pants. He caused problems in Denver and seems to be doing the same in Chicago. He needs to be more of a leader. I’m not sure he should be a team captain. Step up!

  2. “Brandon Marshall wants Jay Cutler to keep being Jay Cutler”

    So does the rest of the league. It means no Superbowls, plenty of interceptions and more meltdowns. Jay Cutler should continue to be himself.

  3. I think I’m the only person in America that could care less about Cutler’s attitude problem. He’s fiery, passionate, spouts off, blah, blah, blah. Many have matched his personality and many more will.

    Who cares. Just play football.

  4. The same ones slamming Cutler for yelling are the same ones slamming Romo for not. Make up your minds ladies.

  5. jay cutler is not the bears problem. it is there terrible offensive line. its the coaches who failed to address the issue during the off-season.

  6. So…….Brandon Marshall is content with getting ONE or TWO catches every game? Sorry, Brandon, I think Jay Cutler should act like an NFL Quarterback! If he does that, everything will take care of itself.

  7. I’m so sick of hearing about this. Just let it go, media. How many times have you seen Michael Jordan or Kobe Bryant rip their teammates a new one after a mistake during a game? It happens with hyper-competitive leaders. I thought this was supposed to be a man’s game?

  8. I cant believe everyone is making such a huge deal about this! This football ladies, NOT a 9-5 office job… it’s a rough sport that has atheistic freaks trying to take each others heads off. Had to watch the tools on First Take discussing this today..

    I am not a big Cutler supporter, but cmon.. he slightly pushed his offensive lineman to light a fire under his butt? boo hoo.. its not like he punched him in the face!
    pull up your panties

  9. Completely agree. When you neuter your dog, he turns docile. When you let him keep his danglers, he is on the top of his game.

    Cutler’s teammates need to change the way they play the game if they have a problem with him wanting to win games.

    “Us too.”

    NFL defenses on the Bears schedule.

    Yeah…Just ask the Colts about that…The Bears offense will have more games like that than they will have like last Thursday night.

    Go Bears!

  12. Marshall giving out advice, love it, he’s been a model teamate for every team that gave him away. He’s a beast between the 20’s but the red zone is cryptonite.
    As for Cutler, he’s too set in his baby tantrum ways to ever be a top tier QB leader.

  13. Except the criticism was kept “in house”…he didn’t go looking for a microphone to then come yell at Webb. We don’t even know what Cutler said to Webb — “get your head in the game” — that’s not necessarily criticism. Now players have to look around for cameras and whatnot to make sure it is “safe” to express your concerns or frustrations with your team…please. During a game, Sidelines are “homes” …that’s where you regroup and focus and what you need to improve on for your next drive. That’s where you get yelled out so you can correct your errors.

  14. Why would Marshall want Cutler to change. After he had a terrible drop in the endzone, Cutler was seen patting him on the head, before joining him for a laugh on the bench.

    I think one of the things that bother people about Cutler is his inconsistency… On the field and in his demeanor.

    ________________

    I would buy that if the Bears were in the AFC South.

    They aren’t.

    They have a solid defense. I think thier offense will continue to be a roller coaster.

  16. @ shaggytoodle,

    You may be right, but if so it’ll have less to do with who they play than with the stiffs (except for Carimi and maybe Garza) on the O-line.

  17. Chicago needs to help Cutler by FIRING THE WHOLE O- LINE.. All of them now… Go to arena leagues all over an pick up good young players
    I KNOW… But if Cutler gone get sacked like in greenbay then whats the differance
