Chicago Fans Burn Chicago Bears Jay Cutler Jerseys

Fox Sports Jimmy Johnson said he needs an “attitude adjustment.”

Fox Sports Howie Long said playing QB is more than just pure athleticism — it requires being a leader, and Cutler’s not doing it.

Chicago Bears Coach Lovie Smith defended Cutler …

“Maybe that’s the perception. For the people who have been around here, when you’re trying to decide whether Jay Cutler is a tough guy or not, think about what he’s gone through. This guy took a lot of shots throughout; was sacked a lot of times, had a concussion, came back from that. I don’t think anybody’s questioning his toughness.

Cutler “hurt his knee — kept playing. It’s not like he came out right when he hurt his knee. He kept playing. In the end, we had to make the decision — the medical staff and all of us had to — when we just didn’t think he could do the job. It’s not like he was trying to get out of it.”

Brian Urlacher defended his quarterback, too …

Jay was hurt. I don’t question his toughness. He’s tough as hell. He’s one of the toughest guys on our football team.
