Jay Cutler takes a lot of heat from fans and the media, and after the quarterback came back from an injury to lead the Bears to the team’s first win of the season, tight end Martellus Bennett was asked if some of the criticism was unfair.
Bennett, who once compared former head coach Marc Trestman to Willy Wonka, had an even loftier reference point for Cutler.
is Jay Cutler too often criticized? Martellus: "They threw rocks at Jesus, & Jesus was an excellent guy who did a lot of awesome stuff."— Patrick Finley (@patrickfinley) October 4, 2015
The tight end also claimed that the quarterback reminded him of the Keanu Reeves character in The Replacements, Shane (Footsteps) Falco.

With praise like that, expect Bennett to get a few more targets in Chicago’s next game.
