The Bears are in a bad relationship. Their friends know it. Their family knows it. Somebody needs to tell them, Jay Cutler is ruining their life. After last night, they have to see it, right?
As the clock wound down in the Eagles 29 – 14 spanking of the Bears, Cutler headed to the locker room in full Jay Cutler-face, i.e he doesn’t give a damn, and left behind uninspired teammates and another head coach with his head on the chopping block. He was playing with a hurt thumb, but his exit didn’t come off as a medical necessity, it came off as quitting.
Jay’s too cool, man. He doesn’t have time for all of that inspiring teammates business. That’s not in his contract. Pass him a heater.
The question for any organization, or business, is always the sliding scale of pain-in-the-assery. If someone produces and is a valuable asset, they can be a headache and you deal with it. If their production dips, then it’s not worth working with a malcontent. The next step is, that person gets shown the door.
Jay Cutler is a headache and he’s not even good anymore. Actually, he’s never been good. He’s had two winning seasons in a 10-year career.
He’s got a cannon arm. Great. He doesn’t inspire teammates and always seems aloof. Maybe his teammates like him, but if it looks that bad from a distance, it’s unlikely it look better up close. His career stats compare more favorably to Matt Schaub than to any elite QB. He’s not worth the headache and looming rain cloud that surrounds him. His career record is 67 – 69.
It’s time to be happy again Bears fans. Dump Jay Cutler, he’s a drain on your organization.
