NBC analyst Rodney Harrison spoke up about Jay Cutler’s struggles, here’s what he had to say:
“His mindset shouldn’t be on ‘Well, this is what I should have done or this is what I could do if I played him again, the fact is you absolutely killed your team. You’ve been killing your team the entire year by making [errant] passes over and over again, so show some maturity, grow up … just put it on your back and show some leadership. Show some maturity and say, ‘I can’t turn the ball over.’ …
“But this is still Jay Cutler. That’s why they got rid of him in Denver, a guy that hides behind his cockiness, his arrogance, and that’s why he continues to play like this. The guy has all the talent in the world, but until he matures and grows up, he’s going to continue to make these stupid mistakes.”
NFL Network’s analyst Jamie Dukes spoke up about Jay Cutler’s struggles and the struggles of the Bears, here’s what he had to say:
“Just like Philip Rivers, and this isn’t derogatory toward Rivers, you get a reputation for being smarmy and aloof but that’s OK. I don’t need him to be my best friend. But you have to at least give him a chance and all that personal baggage outweighs the facts.”
“The bottom line is they have the worst offensive line in football. They can’t run block or pass block. And the receivers … I was irate watching Johnny Knox get pushed around like a little girl by DeAngelo Hall. He should be embarrassed to watch Hall out-fight him.
“The red zone, that’s Jay. And throwing off his back foot, Jay. But from his perspective, he has to be frustrated because he’s saying, ‘I have a coordinator whose system calls for me to throw the ball to these spots and I have these knucklehead receivers who freelance.’
“To me Cutler is the least of the Bears’ worries. He’s not even close to being a worry.”
