Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler did his weekly radio show with ESPN 1000 in Chicago today and says e doesn’t regret the way he treated J’Marcus Webb during last week’s loss to the Packers.
“I probably shouldn’t have bumped him, I’ll go with that. As far as me yelling at him and trying to get him going in the game, I don’t regret that,” Cutler said on ESPN 1000 in Chicago, via ProFootballTalk.com. “I’ve talked about it with the offensive line, each of them individually, and it is what it is. I think it’s been blown up probably a bit bigger than all of us expected. At the same time, that’s what you have to expect out of the media.”
Criticism of the media was a theme of Cutler’s radio appearance. When interviewer Marc Silverman started addressing problems with the Bears’ offense, Cutler cut him off and suggested that he doesn’t think members of the media know what they’re talking about when it comes to analyzing how an NFL quarterback does his job.
“These are guesses. You’re guessing. Admit that you’re guessing,” Cutler said, as Silverman tried to finish his question. “Yes, you are guessing. You are guessing. How can you say you’re not guessing? This blows my mind.”
Cutler doesn’t believe he played that poorly against the Packers, even though he threw four interceptions.
“I think I had my composure. I think I had my composure all game. Under the circumstances, we moved the ball well all game,” Cutler said. “Every game, a win or a loss, you can go back and say, ‘We should have done this, we should have done that.’”
