The biggest game of his lifetime and he can't make it back onto the field? It's the Super Bowl man! Where's Neon Deion and MJD and Darnell Dockett and Raheem Brock when you need them? I thought Jay Cutler was the only player in the league who would abandon his team when it mattered most. I thought Jay Cutler was the only player who wouldn't ignore doctors and coaches. I thought everyone else in the league would have to be dragged off the field kicking and screaming and clawing to stay on!
Yet Green Bay's defensive captain was felled by a simple broken collarbone. He walked of the field and to the locker room under his own power. And he was wandering around the sidelines in the second half yucking it up instead of being in his relief safeties ear constantly, at least in the few seconds the camera was on him! He didn't really look hurt as he was joking with fellow defensive players! He quit on his team, didn't he?
So what happened? I mean, it all sings point to a quitter right? And what about Donald Driver? An ankle injury? Really? That's all it takes to keep the veteran receiver out of the biggest game of his life? What a wimp!
Now, If I was a complete douche, I might actually believe anything I just wrote. Woodson has a track record as a tough SOB, and there is no way in hell someone could convince me that Woodson wouldn't have been on the field if he had the ability to be there, broken collar bone or not. And if Donald Driver wasn't on the field, then he shouldn't have been on the field. I will not question a guy who missed all of 8 games in nine years as a full time starter playing a position that is known for being hung out to dry, most of it under a QB (Favre) who perfected the art of throwing the ball in positions that get WRs killed. Again, if Driver wasn't out there, he shouldn't have been.
But the question I have is did the media and the NFL players learn from the backlash over calling Cutler out, or was it just because it wasn't Cutler that the hypocrites didn't shout out this time?
