Antrel Rolle thinks Jay Cutler should have been a better teammate

Former NFL safety Antrel Rolle spent a year as a teammate of Jay Cutler’s in Chicago, and Rolle believes that Cutler was too aloof as a teammate.

Rolle says that Cutler lacked the leadership qualities a great quarterback needs, and should have been more involved with his teammates.

“I just felt like, honestly, if Jay involved himself more with the team, more with his receivers, I think he’d get more better results on the playing field,” Rolle said on NFL Network. “Like I said I just honestly feel like he would get much better results if he involved himself more in the team collectively, with all individuals. It doesn’t have to be offense, defense, special teams, but just everyone as a collective unit, I think he would get more out of his game for himself.”

Rolle said he isn’t surprised that Cutler remains unemployed. Cutler is thinking about retiring, so he may be done for good.

    If he does retire Cutler would probably make a great studio guy, he has a very quick wit.

    And the NFL thinks Cutler should have been a better QB.

    I second the notion. If his football mind were as quick as that wit he would be a first ballot HoF’er

    He should just retire and enjoy the rest of his life. My guess they are already moving to Nashville.

    “More better results”. Enough said.

    The guy had it handed to him on a silver platter and he pouted, no sympathy from this Bears fan.

    Cutler is still paid, has a hot wife, and can retire at any time. He doesn’t care. In fact, I don’t think he even cares that the’s a free agent at the moment. Might be that, that’s just his personality, or maybe that being diabetic helped him realize that there are things that are actually important and other things that are so-so. Fact of the matter is he played, he won some, he lost some, has lived his life doing something few people get to do & he got paid.

    That and the Bears will still be a disaster.

    Sure, bad mouth the guy after he leaves. Blaming Cutler for the Bears problems is ridiculous. And they knew what they were getting when they got him.
    I hope Cutler retires. He doesn’t need to play anymore.

    Since they won the Super Bowl in 1985 they have failed to draft and build a team . QB was not the problem…..it was lack of quality talent!!!!!!!

  12. tdshouldbeinthehall says: Apr 13, 2017 10:19 PM

    It was always just a job to Jay, that’s why he is not a winner. Not ripping on the guy just saying.

  13. Indybear says: Apr 13, 2017 10:20 PM

    All that from one whole year, eh? Jay never lost the locker room even though he was constantly surrounded by mediocre teammates and coaches. Go away Antrelle.

    A simple check online shows Cutler has made 112 million in the NFL can you freaking believe that? This guy has had a stench about him since day 1 in the NFL and he’s laughed all the way to the bank.

  15. purpleguy says: Apr 13, 2017 10:23 PM

    While Cutler may be aloof, he sure as hell isn’t worse than all of the 32 slotted NFL starting QBs. There’s a story out today that Aaron Rodgers has chosen to workout this off-season in LA with Nick Jonas (of all people) rather than his teammates, and I seriously doubt he’ll suck next season.

  16. mysterytonite says: Apr 13, 2017 10:32 PM

    Just saying what every fan already knew and what every coach and teammate never wanted to say. Cutler only cared about the perks of being a quarterback, he never wanted to be a great one. Just coasted on his physical gifts and his arrogance/aloofness tricked the bears into thinking he was something. His legacy will be that of the 2nd coming of Jeff George.

  17. 8oneanddones says: Apr 13, 2017 10:42 PM

    Jay probably woke up and decided he didn’t want to do offseason work anymore. If he still wants to play, he’ll get picked up by a team whose QB goes down in August or September.

    Cutler to the Texans is going to happen. It’s a perfect year or two fit. Might even make some noise down there and win a couple divisions.

  19. DaBearsBus says: Apr 14, 2017 1:23 AM

    Antrel Rolle also thought the University of Miami should get more criminal behavior amongst them to “bring that attitude” back to the Canes. Later in his career he compared booing NFL players to booing soldiers coming home from Iraq…seriously. He never accepted any blame for poor defensive showings, and even blamed the practice field in Chicago for his old, out of shape body injured in Chicago. He’s known for being an idiot. Go away, Antrel.

    Cutler lessened the game with his play. The sport is better off without him.

    However, he may be sucking in the off season

    only 1 less playoff win than romo

    That’s the smartest and most Honest thing I’ve ever heard come out of the mouth of a member of his family.

  24. theandy59 says: Apr 14, 2017 9:02 AM

    I heard a former player on the radio talk about how the Bears tried to make him a leader, which is a joke – you can’t lead a team when you can’t have a conversation with pretty much anyone else on the team. He’s the QB, which is supposed to be the leader, he just doesn’t have it in him. Really not his fault that they tried to foist upon him a role he’s not equipped for.

  25. joko12blog says: Apr 14, 2017 9:04 AM

    Does anyone like Cutler? I’ve never heard anyone defend this clown

  26. jjackwagon says: Apr 14, 2017 9:08 AM

    Look in the mirror when you say that Antrel.

  27. beachsidejames says: Apr 14, 2017 9:50 AM

    More more better.

  28. TheDPR says: Apr 14, 2017 10:11 AM

    In a work environment with grownups you don’t need to rah-rah your colleagues. They all ought to be equally self-motivated. But this is the league of man-children who need their hands held and butts kissed evidently so they can get “more better results.”
    Sad!

    All the diabetic’s I have known have had a seriousness that seems to go with constantly monitoring one’s own condition/sugar. Others interpret this as aloofness, arrogance, or hostility and offer criticism when more understanding of diabetes would be the best response. Trying to be a professional athlete while dealing with diabetes is amazing in itself.

    Leadership is overrated. – Jeff George.

  31. bradygirl12 says: Apr 14, 2017 10:53 AM

    You can’t blame a whole team’s failures on one guy. I don’t know what’s inside Cutler’s mind, but the guy has a cannon of an arm and I think a team will pick him up before all is said and done.

  32. steves11 says: Apr 14, 2017 9:43 PM

    No question that Cutler can be employed as a quarterback if he wants to be. The big question is……at what price? If he insists on the kind of ridiculous salary he’s been paid with the Bears then I think he may as well retire. But if he’s willing to be realistic about it, I’m certain that he can find a home between now and September. If Mark Sanchez can……nothing more needs to be said.
