Jay Cutler has doled out a lot of abuse of late.
He punished Bears fans and fantasy owners with five interceptions Thursday night, not to mention viewers tuning in to Thursday Night Football looking for a quality game.
Now he’s been fined $20,000 for “abusive conduct” toward a game official in Chicago’s loss to the Cardinals five days ago, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Cutler was flagged during the game for an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty when he complained to referee Ed Hochuli about a non-call on a fourth-and-4 in the third quarter in which Cutler thought Greg Olsen was held.
See, Mike: Cutler does care!
(Amazingly, Bears defensive tackle Tommie Harris was fined only $7,500 for punching Cardinals guard Deuce Lutui in the same game.)
