Welcome to the age of social media in the NFL. It seems that a lot of football fans like me weren’t the only ones baffled by Cutler’s decision to not play (although the official line is that the team doctors wouldn’t let him return) in the NFC championship game after the first half. Some current and former players are wondering what in the hell he was doing. Jacksonville’s Maurice Jones Drew is among Cutler’s colleagues who thinks it was a chump move. Here are his tweets.
First of all, as a Tennessee fan, I appreciate the Meyer reference. And second of all, he appears to be right. It looked like Cutler quit on his team. My prediction is that we’ll see some Bears players voicing their anger with the prima donna QB over the next couple of weeks. Like some other players have pointed out, if you can stand on the sideline, your knees not hurting that badly.
