Jones-Drew, Dockett, and Others Criticize Jay Cutler’s Toughness

As the starting quarterback for the Chicago Bears, Cutler is going to face a lot of scrutiny regardless of what he does. He was blasted by Rick Reilly for not answering questions about the countless charity work he does. This time it’s about his on-field toughness.

Cutler is being criticized by a lot of players and fans about his toughness. The extent of his knee injury isn’t known but his fellow teammates are defending him, along with Lovie Smith.

On Twitter, Jones-Drew and Dockett were among several players who commented on Cutler’s status.

  • Said Jones-Drew: “Hey I think the urban meyer rule is effect right now… When the going gets tough……..QUIT.. … All I’m saying is that he can finish the game on a hurt knee… I played the whole season on one…”
  • Said Dockett: “If I’m on chicago team jay cutler has to wait till me and the team shower get dressed and leave before he comes in the locker room!”

Darnell Dockett and Maurice Jones-Drew, you asshats have no room to discuss anything as you watched the game FROM YOUR HOUSE. Trent Dilfer also openly criticized Cutler (no surprise there) but I don’t want to acknowledge Dilfer’s existence.

If Aaron Rodgers wants to question his toughness, his opinion is valid. He played in the NFC Championship game against him. Jones-Drew and Darnell Dockett watched from their house and both of their teams failed to make the playoffs.

If anybody is going to criticize a franchise Quarterback, can it please come from a player whose team actually made the playoffs?

I have a hard time trying to fathom players why players like Jones-Drew and Dockett feel the need to blather about their opinions on Twitter. Jay Cutler could have fallen over from the wind and came out of the game, and still has more room to speak then these asses.

I have held off judgement until the extent of his injury is known. Some have brought up how Phillip Rivers played with a Torn ACL in the AFC Championship game a couple years ago, the only part they aren’t adding…..the Chargers lost.

    So they can’t criticize someones toughness because they were on bad teams… such a horrible conclusion to come to. But I guess I am glad to know that some no name special teamer who contributes next to nothing that plays on a good team has the right to criticize!

    The point is that players who did not make the playoffs are commenting on issues they shouldn’t be commenting on.

    You took my example to the extreme.

    As a Jaguars fan I am almost embarrassed to see our starting RB act like pure trash. What happened to the days where NFL players didn’t conduct themselves like high schoolers?

    He has no ground to stand as he missed games due to injury PLUS we didn’t even make the playoffs.

    You know Maurice Jones Tweets this but he couldn’t play the last two games of the season, where does he get away with saying he played the whole season, he didn’t. Injuries happen.

    haha they are in the top 5% skill wise in there respective positions. Dockett is a tough physical player and you must be on drugs if you question MJD’s toughness… not much more needs to be said there. And yes, injuries happen, but many players play through them because thats what a professional does, he lays it out on the line. And even though, the chargers lost when phil played injured, atleast he tried… didnt the bears lose anyway?

    They are not Top 5% “skill wise” at their positions. They is completely subjective and your opinion.

    Dockett and MJD both missed time this season for less severe injuries then what Jay Cutler had faced, yet they questioned his toughness? Do you realize how stupid they look to be critcizing him? MJD missed the final 2 games of the season during the playoff possible stretch to get his team in the playoffs and Dockett came out in the 2nd qtr earlier in the season with a leg injury, he played the next week…meaning he COULD have played through the pain…yet he didn’t. Then he criticized Cutler?

    They are hypocritical BUMS. Teams didn’t make the playoffs, yapping from their houses when they came out with less severe injuries.

    Anything else you want to put out there I can completely refute? You’re right the Bears lost… the NFC Championship…..Im pretty sure Arizona and Jacksonville did not even make the playoffs…..didn’t they? ;)
