LEAVE CUTLER ALONE



I don't get it, I really don't get it.  I open up my Chicago Sun Times this morning as I do every morning.  Looking for the latest news on my beloved Chicago Bears and how OTAs are going.  Instead I get this article, front and center first page of the sports, HEY, JAY, DON"T FLAME THE FANS, written by Neil Hayes.  And so its begun, its only taken what, about 61 days since the trade was made and certain bloggers and media members have already found a flaw.  He hasn't even played a game, let alone practiced in full pads and the media is already trying to find things wrong with this guy.  I guess writing about his laser rocket precision throwing arm can get a little boring at times huh.  But seriously, don't tell me he's already on the bad side of the fans Neil Hayes, because he's not, he also doesn't have to go Mongo McMichael on everyone and sign for every single person in the stadium or at the club. He can if he wants, but he doesn't have to.  Neil also suggests buying " a round on the house", now as tight as that would be, to have Jay Cutler buy me a drink at the bar, I don't expect him to do that nor do I expect to sign my new Cutler jersey either.  I expect him to do one thing, WIN, thats it.  I don't know about the rest of you guys, but I think certain circles need to ease off the ropes with Cutler, its not like hes Brett Favre and this is a one year and gone type of situation.  He'll be here for the better part of a decade, hopefully longer.  And I'm in no rush to have his autograph, it will come sooner or later with all the training camps(57 DAYS AWAY!!!) and bears expo visits I expect to be at, as I am every year.  A perfect time to get such an autograh, not at a Cubs game.  At the Expo this year during the Q and A a kid asked Jay how many touchdowns he would have this year and Cutler responded "How many do you want?".  The kid said 30 and Cutler said "We can do 30." He also said hes excited to come back from Lambeau Field 1 - 0.  That right there showed me Jay knows full and well the expectations that lay on his shoulders.  And no amount of autograph signings or car dealership commercials or rounds of drinks at the bar are going to fulfill those expectations.  Going 12-4, handling the Packers, throwing 30 TD passes, making the playoffs, competing for a Super Bowl title, avenging the Ghosts of Quarterbacks Past.....thats the stuff that should be on Jay Cutlers mind, thats how you get immortalized by Bears fans.  The autograph and photo seekers will have to wait their turn, but remember hes going to be here a long, long time and thats the most exciting part about it.
