So, the Cutlers Don’t Think Chicago Is Home – Get Over It!


When Jay Cutler’s wife, Kristin Cavallari, stated last week that “Chicago is just not home,” I thought nothing of it at all.  However, I thought to myself, “I wonder how many fools are going to create an uproar over this innocent comment and make it more than it is?’”  Well, the fools did not disappoint….

  • Social media, headlines, etc. all blew up creating a sensationalized headline out of something that should not be a story.  I’m here to tell these folks to get over it and stop looking for reasons to hate Cutler.  If that comment really offended you and upset you then you need to stop being so sensitive and move on with your life. Here are a few reasons why:

    1. Jay didn’t say it, his wife did. I don’t know about you but I don’t have a ton of control over things my wife says.  She’s her own person with her own life.  If she offends someone, then that person should address it with her.
    1. Jay didn’t grow up in Chicago. If you moved from your hometown to be employed in another city – would that be your “home?”  There are many cities that I enjoy being in but there will only be one that is my “home.”  Again, non-story.
    1. She was not bashing Chicago at any point, she simply stated that it was not their home. If that’s how they feel, then fine – that’s their right and has no effect on the success of the Bears.  That should not deter a fan from cheering for Jay’s success or demanding his deportation from the city.
    1. Why should Chicago be “home” to them? He has been a target for criticism since he came to Chicago and has never been welcomed.  The couch armchair, know-it-all general managers have anointed him as a poor leader because of his facial expressions and body language through a television set.   He was criticized for his lack of fatherhood skills at one point, as well as not vaccinating his children.  He has also been the scapegoat for the team’s lack of success for the last few years.  I don’t blame him for not feeling “at home.”

    Cutler detractors need to check the reasons why they hate the man and quit looking for petty reasons to attack him.  Think about this – when he was traded in 2009, the expectations that he inherited were sky-high and almost impossible to fulfill.

    Is he not a good quarterback or is he just not living up to your expectations?  If you keep comparing him to Aaron Rodgers, then you need to curb those expectations – there’s only one Aaron Rodgers and only 1 of 32 teams has him.  If you don’t like what the Bears gave up for him, be upset with former Bears’ GM Jerry Angelo.

    Furthermore, there’s no question that the contract given to him was overpriced and has handcuffed the organization a bit as we stand now.  But guess what?  That’s not his fault – if you want to be upset with someone, be upset with former Bears’ GM Phil Emery.  Don’t be mad at the player because someone made a bad move and overpaid him.  If you were offered a chunk of money, would you take it?   Personally, I would happily accept an overpayment from my employer.

    In short, certain fans need to stop looking for ridiculous reasons to hate this guy – get over it and get a life. I’m not saying that everyone should like him – I’m saying to stop criticizing everything he does. In my personal opinion, I feel he has done an admirable job of handling the negativity that is always thrown his way.

    It’s tiresome to observe players such as Ben Roethlisberger, Ray Lewis and Adrian Peterson who are constantly getting defended and praised while Cutler gets nothing but negativity. All 3 players mentioned above have been in the middle of major ethical controversies but don’t see nearly the amount of negativity that Cutler does.

    Last time I checked, saying that a city is not your home or choosing against vaccinating your own children is not against the law.

    In all fairness, I’m a lifelong Bear fan and there’s no question that Cutler was part of the problem last year. With that said, the majority of the roster, the entire coaching staff and front office were all major problems as well. This is a team sport, always will be and success does not start and end with one player.

    As fans, it’s fun to discuss opinions and there may be some viable alternative options that could make the Bears a better team than Jay Cutler at quarterback. However, the people who constantly attack every word and move of Cutler are starting to get ridiculous. Now, after this article, can we move on to some football discussions and put this to rest?
