Things are getting very interesting around Halas Hall these days. Last week, Jay Cutler called out the obvious idiocy of asking him to take seven step drops with sub-par receivers and a patchwork line made up mostly of journeymen, who together perform about as well as you would expect sub-par receivers and a patchwork line made up mostly of journeymen to perform.
Meaning that Cutler gets his face pushed into the turf many, many times per game. Apparently, he’s not a big fan.
And then on Sunday night, against the Vikings …
The NBC field microphone and camera picked up the voice of Cutler telling quarterbacks coach Shane Day to relay a message to Martz in a Soldier Field booth: “Tell him I said (blank) him.”
Seems like Mr. Cutler has had it up to here (points over head) with the Martz Magic and how badly he gets beat up every week because of it.
And he ain’t backin’ down, neither:
Asked if he regretted what he said, Cutler replied, “No.”
Cutler’s exactly right, and good for him, because anybody who says “tell him I said (bleep) him” about the sainted Mike Martz is OK with me. I say it myself a few times per game!
