I’m going to go out on a limb here: I like Jay Cutler
. I think that the world is too mean to him — sure he comes off like a spoiled, effete little douchebag
who pouts and seems to spend most of his time being injured, but so what? We all have bad decades. For me, it was 2005 until, well, a couple years from now (I hope).
The latest Jay Cutler bashing came courtesy of ESPN
, who dared to postulate that the current quarterback of the Chicago Bears is responsible for Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III being injured. “How can a quarterback injure another quarterback?” you might be asking if you’re familiar with sports, and “What’s a quarterback?” if you’re not. Well to answer the first question, it deals with a playoff game two years ago in which Cutler pulled himself from the game over a (what seemed minor) leg injury. The critics lambasted him for being a pussy
. Everybody, even that guy who didn’t know what a quarterback was, remembers that shitstorm. And, likely, according to ESPN, a young college quarterback named Robert Griffin III remembered too.
So fast forward to last Sunday’s game: Seattle Seahawks versus Griffin’s Redskins. Griffin, or as he is more popularly known, “RG3” suffered a leg injury of his own (exacerbating a previous injury), possibly to the point where he should have recused himself from further play. He didn’t until it was effectively too late, and the ‘skins lost.
