By Tim Baffoe-
(CBS) Jay Cutler could cure cancer and would still not win people over because of his lack of warmth and fuzziness. Going into Sunday’s playoff-deciding game vs. Green Bay there were a significant amount of people actively rooting against the Bears quarterback merely to have some shred of self-satisfaction as more important than a Bears win and trip to the postseason.
Unfortunately for those weird, sad people, Cutler did not play badly. But, hey, never let results get in the way of a forced narrative, right? As you, the rational Bears fan, lick your wounds from a bitter loss and realization of the end of a season, at least take satisfaction in knowing you are not as dumb as the following people.
Jay Culter fails again #yes— Cole Renken (@renkcol) December 30, 2013
Packers win, Jay Culter remains a Bum— jerry (@rideouut) December 30, 2013
If you mean Jay Culter?! Than yes, goodbye RT @AntheaButler: Bye Jay.— Parker (@sparkerview) December 30, 2013
@BeBreezyMan difference, Orton is older, and isn't as playing as lights out like McNown who should be starting instead of Cutler— Europa League Champions (@IOnlySayFacts) December 30, 2013
After hearing the bears lost when I was working I am thinking they should of put McCowan in not CUTLER!!!!— Brandon O’Shaughnessy (@Brandonosh13) December 30, 2013
You could have been in the playoffs with McCowan...and he could go 8-8...don't spend the money on Cutler.— Kevin Kusek (@kevkusek) December 30, 2013
GOD DANGET CUTLER U SUCK. HES 1-8 AGAINST THE PACKERS HE SUCKS— maddie (@maddie_spagnola) December 30, 2013
So much going on here. First, how often do you see somebody use “God” but not the expletive afterward? Usually you’ll get a “Gosh dangit” or a “God d**n it,” but not a hybrid. Fascinating choice. Also, after careful consideration to not curse, we get the misspelling “DANGET.” This tweet could be studied in a linguistics class for days.
cutler we have lost sines he's been back ! How many of you own a cutler jersey? That's what I thought! He sucks go back to Denver. "Sissy"— chopper (@chopper410tpn) December 30, 2013

The best we've ever had!Have you been watching this season?We were winning and if not right till the very end of overtime!Hello Knuckle head— chopper (@chopper410tpn) December 30, 2013
I would be hoping for a bear to get you in the woods and think your he's cuddle buddy....— chopper (@chopper410tpn) December 30, 2013
Man you kicked ass you all did.. Please put MC Cowen back! We were doing so good..! Dude you ran your butt off...— chopper (@chopper410tpn) December 30, 2013
It’s nice that they let you have Internet access at the home.
Because then zero Cutler haters would question his heart or dedication if he did, right?
@BluenorangeFTW cutler was/is a terrible leader, at the position where leasership is paramount.— Go Broncos! (@powder_addict) December 30, 2013
I have yet to hear a player on the Bears offense question Cutler’s leadership, a very unquantifiable concept that people invoke when they don’t really have an argument. In fact, every Bears offensive player does nothing but back Jay. Perhaps the media hasn’t been asking questions about leasership, though.
JAY CUTLER SUCKS. #mccownnation— Riley (@RileyPawelski) December 30, 2013
The McCown Nation is a puppet regime that used to be the People’s Republic of Orton.https://twitter.com/madihasseman/status/417533606912086016
I like how you’re not afraid to have an avatar that suggests you’ll cut your boyfriend into pieces and use him as chum.https://twitter.com/scully_ryann/status/417512496849625088
Luckily very few people care what you say.
Ima be one pissed bear fan if the bears resign Jay Cutler.. Dude is terrible. #wewantMcCown— Gage Johnson (@GJohnson10) December 30, 2013
Dudes named Gage want a 35-year-old journeyman quarterback that was recently working at a high school! Make it so!
Kinda sucks you rock that sorta mustache.https://twitter.com/kubs25/status/417522530425905152
I can’t get over the Urlacher jersey mirror selfie.
My driving has been like Jay Cutler lately #Terrible— Alex Dronkers (@Alex_Dfor3) December 30, 2013
A bit closer to the guardrail next time.
Not the historically bad defense. Not getting back arguably the best quarterback in the game. Nope. It’s that they played against a quarterback who is going to willingly get paid a lot of money in 2014.
@mdjuarez3 JA JA!! Los bears SUCKS!!!! Cutler pa q fregados!!— Jaime Estrada (@jamesmito) December 30, 2013
¡Ay, caramba! ¡Muchos estupidos!
I am actually crying because I'm so pissed my bears lost. Why did we put Cutler in! 😫 #CHIvsGB— Boo Songz (@TreysBooAngel) December 30, 2013
I wish people had more respect for themselves and each other! #PrayingForABetterWorld— Boo Songz (@TreysBooAngel) December 27, 2013
Mark Trustman sucks should've pulled Cutler out of the game— marc strombeck (@MarcStrombeck) December 30, 2013
“Coach, Jay had a 148.3 quarterback rating at one point in the fourth quarter. Why’d you pull him?”
“Well, I consulted that guy on Twitter that doesn’t know my name, so…”https://twitter.com/EvanPCade/status/417473232250208256
And then the Packers would have less of the touchdown things and Bears win and stuff.https://twitter.com/MattKarijolic/status/417453331275976704
No, see, you’re not a Bears fan then. You’re a petty bro from Schaumburg who likes Scotty McCreery.https://twitter.com/MattKarijolic/status/387066763046703104
I say we feed cutler to the fishes in Lake Michigan... #CutlerSucks— Reid Gradert (@Gradert_35) December 30, 2013
But freshwater lake fish don’t feed on mammal flesh. Bro, do you even ichthyology?
Josh McCown would’ve prevented that 4th and 8 Packers game-winning touchdown.https://twitter.com/JaeckAaron/status/417493663652917248
Oh, I love when my prejudices get comfortably proven, too.
Jay Cutler is the worst player in the NBA— Blake (@BlakeAlan_) December 29, 2013
This is 100% correct.
Aaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!!!. He's a Baaaddd Baaadddd Man. Cutler? Not so much! Haaaaaaa— Stephen A Smith (@stephenasmith) December 30, 2013
But is either one Russell Westbrookian?
If there’s one good thing about the Bears losing yesterday it’s that people like this will have to find something else to sound incredibly stupid about. At least until the Bears put the franchise tag on Cutler.
