Jay Cutler took his offensive line to task in the aftermath of the Chicago Bears' 23-10 loss to the Green Bay Packers. Cutler was sacked seven times and threw four interceptions in the loss, during which he was seen berating left tackle J'Marcus Webb on the sideline. Afterward, he called out his teammates in the press.
Now, one of his teammates is talking back. Cornerback D.J. Moore told the Chicago Sun-Times "I don't think you can act like that," in reference to Cutler's antics.
To make it seem like it’s just my fault or what not, I think it’s just wrong, though honestly. I would feel a certain way if he did me like that, to make it seem like, ‘Well, the reason I’m having a bad game is because is what you’re doing and not about me taking accountability for myself because I’m throwing these type of passes and doing these type of reads.’ It’s a tough situation.’’
Asked if Cutler is under a different set of rules because he is the quarterback of the team, Moore said, “Sometimes, but when you act like that, though, with your own teammates on the sideline, it’s just something different that you normally wouldn’t do. You might say it in the locker room or something, but to do it like he did, that’s something different. It’s just weird.
Cutler's tirade has received widespread criticism outside of his own team, as well.
