Bears offensive coordinator Mike Tice said he had no problems with quarterback Jay Cutler walking away from him during Monday’s win over the Cowboys.
Tice seemed no more bothered by Cutler’s continued churlishness than Bears fans who are willing to overlook anything if Cutler wins.
The veteran assistant said he was “really angry,” at a failed third-and-short conversion, and had already told Cutler that.
“At a certain point,” Tice said via Kevin Seifert of ESPN.com, “probably enough was enough.”
“Jay and I are good,” Tice continued. “I really admired his play the other night. I really admire how he’s bought in. It’s an emotional game. Sometimes I’m sure we all wish we could handle some things differently. Not to say that he should have handled that differently, but it’s an emotional game. Jay and I are fine.
“I wish they would have got the clip at the end of the game where he smacked me on the rear end. They didn’t show that one. I wish they would have shown that one. And I smacked him back.”
This one falls squarely in the “What’s he gonna say?” category, as the Bears continue to look the other way whenever the quarterback decides to have another tantrum.
