Jay Cutler blows off Mike Tice on sidelines

Jay Cutler walked away from Chicago Bears offensive coordinator Mike Tice on the sidelines during “Monday Night Football.”

Cutler behavior on the football field has been in question for years, and this is no exception. In this case, it seems like Tice wanted to go over something but Cutler just blew him off.

We don’t consider Tice a good offensive coordinator, but that’s unprofessional behavior from Cutler. He was questioned by a teammate for the way he approached one of his offensive linemen during the team’s Week 2 loss to the Packers. He also notably feuded with his former offensive coordinator, Mike Martz, and expressed little regret for cussing at the coach.

Cutler needs to shape up, but I highly doubt he will change. This is just the way he is.

    I have no problem with confronting a teammate. But a coach? That’s different. Bench him next game.

    I usually say “In all fairness, we don’t know what’s going on…” but I can not in this case.  Regardless of what he was feeling in regards to slow play calling, he should have listened to Tice to solve whatever needed to be solved.  This would not fly in any other work place.  While I still support Cutler and believe he is our franchise QB, I agree with SpinMax – Bench Cutler the next couple of games and give Campbell the the start.  Will it change Cutler’s behavior?  Probably not, but it may show him that he is expendable.  Maybe.

     I agree.

    Do you people want to win or not? Campbell? Why is it that when Tom Brady screams at his OC no one shouts “bench him” but if Cutler does you are talking about possibly blowing the season to teach a grown man a lesson? Like always with Cutler, too much is being made of nothing. How come no one is talking about how much better he played than Romo?

    I wanted to see Tom Brady expelled from the league for his outburst…but obviously that’s just wishful thinking.

    My god why the big deal anything with Cutler gets blown out of proportion he may have realized a mistake and wanted to take it upon himself…and if Peyton Manning were to push and O-lineman around and tell him to shape up it would be leadership right ;)

    Fans will always be extreme, he isn’t getting benched for this lol. There was a video of Anquan Boldin calling the Cardinal’s OC Ken Wisenhunt’s “female Dog”. Tempers fly during games this is only going to be a big deal cause it was filmed.

    I’m totally with Cutler on this.  If Tice can’t call an f’ing play on time then what the hell is he doing being an offensive coordinator.  I’m sick of having to watch my teams offense call meaningless timeouts because they’re the only team in the NFL that can’t figure out how to call a play.

    #dumbassbearsfans don’t even understand a problem when it’s staring them straight in the eye.  Do you know how many other teams in the NFL have to deal with this kind or problem?  NONE.  Even teams of 8 year olds can at least call a play before they get a delay of game penalty.
    Let me take all of you through the exact problem here that you so clearly fail to understand
    Normal Offensive Presnap Procedure.

    Playclock Time Remaining:40 – Offense Regroups into huddle.:30 – Play comes in from coaching staff.:20 – Quarterback calls play in the huddle.:15 – Offense lines up and Quarterback makes pre-snap reads.:05 – Ball is snapped.

    Here’s what it looks like for the bears offense.
    :40 – Players regroup into huddle.:25 – Play comes in from coaching staff.:15 – Quarterback calls play in huddle.:10 – Offense lines up and Quarterback attempts to make presnap reads with limited time for adjustments.:05 – Ball is snapped.

    Does this make the problem any clearer for you?  If the offense can’t get to the line of scrimmage faster how on earth are they supposed to make any sight adjustments based on what the defense is showing?

    If the play involves any kind of presnap motion this gets even worse because now you’re snapping the ball with 1 or 2 seconds on the play clock making it painfully easy for the defense to jump the snap because they absolutely know you have to snap the ball or face a penalty.
    Getting to the line late allows defenses to get away with using the most base disguises because your team doesn’t have a chance to read them.

    This equals More Sacks, More Turnovers.

    This is the problem.  And now perhaps you know a little bit more about football.  The next time your Quarterback gets pissed because he doesn’t have a damn play to call in the huddle perhaps you’ll be a little bit more respectful of the fact that he has every right to be.

    Actually, no. It would be the same thing. Unprofessional…

    Tice will be the next coach of the Bears if he stands up to Cutler. If not, he’ll be just like that sissy mary Lovie Smith. Tice has to get control and send a message.

     So it’s ok to be an Ass, but only if you win while doing it?  Seems a bit hypocritical

  • http://www.facebook.com/jacob.albert.35 Jacob Albert

     I completely disagree…unprofessional would be screaming at his offensive coordinator.  Case in point, Tom Brady.  But as someone so intelligently pointed out earlier, it not unprofessional if you win while doing it.

    This whole Cutler image thing is  an interesting note on how we process information.  Brady chews his offensive coordinator out, ESPN tells us it’s ok because he’s just competitive.  Lay person watching at home swallows this line  and moves one.  Aaron Rodgers rips his recievers a new one, ESPN tells us it’s ok, hes being a fiery leader…ensuring his guys won’t make the same mistake the next time.  Again, guy on couch buys the BS and moves on again.  Jay Cutler gets in his offensive lineman’s face for not doing his job, or walks away from his coach because his coaches inability to do his directly effected a drive and suddenly ESPN wants to tell us it’s not ok.  Cutler hasn’t acted any differntly on the field with his team mates or coaches tan any other QB.  Yet the general public is against him, why….because ESPN told us he different.  Here’s an idea…stop listening to ESPN, Fox sports, or whetever…compare apples to apples, oranges to oranges and start thinking for your self.
