So Culter is a bad leader?
After last nights game, I would like to point something out that is painfully obvious to me. Jay Cutler's rant toward J Webb during the Green Bay game came with unrelenting abuse from the media both locally and nationally, as well as some of the fans of the team Jay plays for. A few of us had Jay's back, and I shared my opinion that in fact, it is sometimes incumbent on a good leader to dress down a problem individual, in public if necessary, for the good of the whole. It is not recommended to make a habit of it, but sometimes, when everything else fails, a little public humiliation is effective for those that have a little too much meat in the noggin. In other words, it is used as a last resort, and I can think of no other time when Cutler has done it. To do so, the leader must have a sack of iron as this is not easy to do. Actually it is much easier to simply remain quiet, but in my mind, to remain quiet when action is needed is not the path of a leader. A leader is the one that steps up and takes the necessary action when everyone else is simply "doing their job" and being quiet. So while Jay has continued to catch grief as a result of the pussification of our society and the warped sense of leadership that some have attributed to "NFL Quarterbacks", allow me to ask this one question:
Has J'Marcus Webb played better and kept Jay Cutler cleaner since his verbal reprimand by his QB?
