Were you saying these negative things about him when he was on your team or were you calling him your franchise QB? Exactly so stop talking.

You do realize that I'm a Chargers fan right? I'm just happy that the Denver fans are beginning to realize what type of person he truly is. You'll come to realize that fact too.

Well, until he stops locking onto one receiver and relying on his arm strength instead of his brain, he'll have that stigma in my mind.

BOURBONNAIS, Ill. -- One game into the preseason and already Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has had to smooth things out with one of his wide receivers.

Cutler commented to reporters about wide receiver Devin Hester's failure to break up an interception on a pass that fell short Saturday night following the team's 27-20 preseason loss to Buffalo. His remark seemed to rub some people the wrong way.

"Devin is more of a go-get-it guy; he is not really a back shoulder or jump-up-and-get-it [guy]," Cutler said Saturday. "You learn from it.

"We made some mistakes. It's the first preseason game. Luckily enough, we have some time to correct them and keep going."

Hester admitted Monday that Cutler's comment upset him at first.

"But then he [Cutler] said he didn't say it," Hester said.

Hester said they're just getting to know each other.

Even if it's natural for a QB to have a say in the roster, you don't need to actually say it like that. Likewise you can't come off like a jerk by implying that you don't have any blame to share in mistakes.

He also can't seem to accept blame for anything. It's always somebody else. Whether it's the Broncos' defense against the Chargers, or Hester for failing to break up the interception that was still poorly thrown.

Maybe Hester should demand a trade. After all, he was lied to.

Quote:
No problem: Some eyebrows were raised when Jay Cutler told reporters after throwing an interception on a jump ball in Buffalo that Devin Hester “is more of a go-get-it-guy” and “not really a back-shoulder, jump-up-and-get-it [guy].”

Hester conceded that he was initially offended by the comment. But he was fine with what Cutler said after the quarterback explained that he wasn’t blaming the receiver for the interception but merely explaining that the 5-11 Hester isn’t a 6-5 receiver who can catch every jump ball thrown in his direction.

“[Devin] knows Jay believes in him,” said offensive coordinator Ron Turner. “He knows Jay has a lot of confidence in him. He knows Jay’s going to throw the ball up to him when he gets one-on-one [coverage]. When we have an opportunity, we’re going to him. He knows that. I have confidence in him. I’m going to try to find ways to get him the ball and Jay’s going to go to him.”

Get used to these "misunderstandings." He tends to do it a lot.

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/traini...tory?id=440599

Turner said occasionally he might need to talk to Cutler about being critical of teammates, but not every time.

"We don't want to temper that too much," Turner said. "Jay is an emotional guy and he's a fiery guy and he's a fiery competitor. That's why he's an elite quarterback."

Cutler's candid remarks got him into trouble when he played for Denver last year. Cutler went 5-for-10 Saturday for 64 yards with the one interception.

As for Cutler...do you think it's fair to whine about wanting to traded, then get upset when they do decide to think about trading you. Because remember, Cutler wanted to traded after Jeremy Bates was let go...way before McDaniels even entertained the NE trade for Cassell.

Seems like people are fighting, don't wanna read 4 pages of it...

But i've always been a Cutler fan but he is souring me a little bit. While I think he had every right to be upset with Josh McDaniels, he still acted a bit like a brat. But there's alot of QB's who would have done the same thing so I can't blame him. But then talking trash about your old fans in Denver, saying something that could be taken as negative about your new teammates. He just needs to be quiet and play football for the rest of the year.

My theory was that Cutler became disgruntled after Bates and Shanahan were let go. Then he found out about the Cassell trade attempts and decided to exploit it to get his ticket out of Denver.

Its kind of like when you want to break up with a girl and so you blow up something small she did out of proportion. It makes you look overly sensitive but it saves you from admitting the real reason or that you have no real reason at all except that you just wanted out.

I think a lot of his statements are blown out of proportion by a hungry media looking ot stir up controversy but...

Yup. Granted I think the media has twisted words with Jay so far in some of his interviews, he's a guy that will say what is on his mind and that will ruffle feathers, especially in a fan base and a city that has never had a QB with his accolades and talent coming in. We've had guys like Rex and Kyle who were politically correct about everything, Jay isn't like that and it's apparent that the media isn't ready for it.

If you were asked what Jay meant in the quote about Hester without hearing ESPN and the other media outlets reporting that he threw Hester under the bus (which he didn't), you would not have drawn a conclusion that he was calling Devin out from that quote. It was much ado about nothing and it became a national story.

I'm not going to defend Jay on everything he says because there are going to be times when he opens his mouth and says something dumb, but lets just wait until that happens.

From all reports so far though he's been great in the locker room and he's shown very good leadership skills. I guarantee that Jay is going to be one of those players that I love to hate at times. But stirring up controversy over things like this is ridiculous. The only reason it became a story was because the media blew it up and made it newsworthy.

Once again, someone other than SD fans bringing up Rivers for some reason. My guess is Rivers is probably laughing at the crotch grabber.
