Charles Barkley isn't scared to give a good quote, so you know someone was going to ask him about Jay Cutler.

That happened on Tuesday, and Barkley, unsurprisingly, took a quotable stance.

"I was mad at the players, to be honest with you," Barkley said on "The Waddle & Silvy Show." "I think it was inappropriate and wrong to question a guy's heart. Now reporters, they're going to do what they want to. They're entitled to their opinion. But as players, I don't think it's appropriate to question another guy's heart."

Barkley also said the Twitter commentary "crosses the line" and he also bashed Maurice Jones-Drew because the Jaguars running back missed the last two games of the season and yet was "really the first guy who crucified Jay."

What Barkley probably wasn't aware of, though, is that Jones-Drew received death threats from fans who were angry of his criticism toward Cutler. (This is, by the way, possible proof that the rhetoric in America is Looney Toons across the board.)

But Barkley also beefed a little toward Cutler, saying he was "disappointed that he wasn't standing by" Caleb Hanie during the game. Hanie said that Cutler was encouraging and helping him and whatnot, but that's not what the world saw.

The logical thing, then, would be to bring this puppy full circle by criticizing someone who's criticizing the people who were criticizing Cutler's performance on Sunday. But, frankly, the story's too played out at this point (plus, I just hate death threats) to warrant yelling at Barkley.

 I know it has nothing to do with sports, but I felt I needed to respond to somebody's ignorance.  Now I feel I need to respond to your ignorance.

treystone7354 - you are an idiot.  The only reason I brought up my wife not getting a certain job because she is white (and my grandmother fleeing Europe because she was Jewish) was in response to some other idiot saying only blacks understand or have felt racism.  I know it has nothing to do with sports, but I felt I needed to respond to somebody's ignorance.  Now I feel I need to respond to your ignorance.

The Bears have not had a real man at QB since McMahon. He was no pro-bowler, but he had guts.

Chuck is the poster boy for inappropriate. So anything he has to say on the subject is relevant.

I heartily disagree.  Players in the NFL play with injuries, especialy in playoff games and the SuperBowl.  Just last year we saw Dwight Freeney return from a torn ankle ligament way too fast to limp through the SuperBowl.  It really just looked like Cutler quit to me.  Sorry, but that's the way I saw it.  He was walking around, his shoulders all slumped and looking defeated.  People keep saying that they players who criticized him shouldn't have said this or that, but they are the ones who KNOW that you play with that injury in that game.  I thought this guy had some pretty good points: .  Emmitt Smith was a warrior and put it all on the line for his team.  Jay ran off and hid.
