Cutler gets no respect from opponents.
Finnegan: 'Typical' Cutler could be hindering Bears' offense
Bush, Cutler on Bears' performance vs. RamsMichael Bush discusses how he feels his performance was as well as his team's against the Rams. Jay Cutler comments on Bush's playing as well. - 9/23
Last week it was Packers Pro Bowl cornerback Charles Woodson who bashed Bears quarterback Jay Cutler when he said Cutler was the “same old Jay” after Green Bay’s win over Chicago. This week another former Pro Bowler took a jab of his own.
When asked what he saw from Cutler after the Bears 23-6 win over the Rams on Sunday, St. Louis cornerback Cortland Finnegan was blunt:
“Not much. I think he had a 190 yards passing, but no touchdowns. Typical him.”
Finnegan, who had a first-quarter interception, suggested that Cutler may actually be hindering the Bears’ offense.
"I think they stuck to the run today [because] they didn't feel like [Jay] Cutler was going to get it done,” Finnegan said.
Cutler was 17-for-31 with 183 yards and an interception, which clearly didn’t impress Finnegan.
“I think they had 80 yards passing in the second half,” Finnegan said. “Sometimes you got to bend, but not break. If we can keep them to field goals, we’ve done our job.”
Seems as though other teams think they have him figured out.
Until this team gets a better OL around him; AND JC starts making better decisions he's going to continually get dogged. He needs to stop relying soling on that arm to gun it into impossibly tight spots, and instead find the open guy.

Cutler is his own worst enemy. I like the guy. I'm really grateful we have him as our QB. But he needs to understand there is more to being a franchise QB than x's and o's. He gives the appearance of a selfish spoiled brat who has an inflated ego. This may not be who Cutler really is (I hope not) but HE controls a lot of this. He feeds and perpetuates the poor image among his peers - by his actions.
The guy looks like he's constipated all the time too
He needs to lighten up a bit.

I am definitely NOT a Tony Romo fan. But I do respect his toughness and leadership.
LINK to the article Romo's toughness carries Dallas Cowboys
they see their quarterback take those bone-rattling hits, absorb those helmet-to-helmet shots, get driven into the turf. And then they watch as Tony Romo
picks himself back up. Again. And again. And he continues to perform.
"Some quarterbacks who take hits like that don't want to go back," wide receiver Dez Bryant
said. "Not him. He's just a strong guy, and he's very passionate. He's that great guy that you want to feed off. He got that fire in him, and you just want to play hard for him."
That's easy to notice: Romo's persistence in the face of adversity. What goes largely unnoticed is how Romo doesn't curse out the offensive linemen who are responsible for his beatings.
With his even-keeled demeanor, Romo is the ultimate leader by example.
And Romo thrived as the symbol, praising his team's "ability to grind it out on the offensive side when nothing was easy." No one grinded harder than he did.
"These are the kind of wins you have to have," Romo said.
And the more he got hit, the better he played.
Miscues abounded in the first three quarters, from miscommunications to simple misfires. Yet as the brutalizing became worse, Romo was 7-for-7 in the fourth quarter for 65 yards. In the second half, he completed 13 of his 16 passes for 183 yards. One of those was a 49-yard bomb to receiver Miles Austin
to set up Dan Bailey
's field goal that made it 13-7 -- a throw Romo made while falling backward and hitting his hand on an opponent's helmet.
"He gets knocked down and comes back stronger," Austin said.

Tony Romo apparently has never played qb and is just a fan that doesn't understand how hard it is to recieve the snap and see angry men running at him.
Again I'll state that the OL and play calling doesn't help JC, but Cutler has to be better at how he handles the pressure. Romo has been running for his life since he became a stater down there. And while he has some real mind numbing clunkers, they are not in the same amount as Cutler.
Oh god, another week of this garbage. Cutler is blah blah blah. People are amazed at how well the defense is playing, but it's philosophy has not really changed since 2003. This offense has changed, or been tweaked numerous times with many different moving parts for as long as Lovie's been here. The WR's we have now are still dropping passes, the whole thing just isn't in sync, but it seems allowing the possibility of THAT happening (as it did last year) isn't really a question....
To be clear, I didn't give a crap what Finnegan thought before the game, and I don't give a crap now....AND I think he is crying over spilled milk.
Job well done, Cortland.

amazing that Cutler needed a 1st down, has thrown the ball perfectly to Marshall who beat Finnegan clearly to make the catch and get the ~25 yards + 1st down.
Hey Cortland, how about you win the game and then talk... sore loser??
