Thanks to recent advances in technology and a desire to improve the in-home NFL experience, we now get to hear more of what goes on between the numbers on the field. When guys don’t refuse to wear their microphones like the league requires, we get to hear things like Jay Cutler expressing his displeasure with the Bears play calling.
When the Bears had a 23-3 lead over the Vikings late in the first half on Sunday night, Chicago offensive coordinator Mike Martz decided to get conservative. Rather than call a pass play and risk a turnover with only 43 seconds remaining in the half, Martz called for a draw on 3rd and 7. When word came in of the play call, Cutler could clearly be heard saying, “Tell Mike I said **** him” as he entered the huddle. On Wednesday, Cutler expressed no regret for what he said.
“Things happen,” Cutler said according to the Chicago Tribune. “You (media) guys were fighting in the hallways last week. I’m not going to make a big deal out of it. It’s not a big deal. We’re all on the same team and we’re going to try to win ballgames.
