Johnny Knox says Jay Cutler is no sissy

You remember that whole “Jay Cutler is a pansy” meme that emerged from last year’s Bears NFC title game loss when he sustained a bad knee injury and couldn’t return? You remember when Seahawks defensive end Raheem Brock called Cutler a “sissy” on Twitter and Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew said that Cutler had quit?

Immediately after the game, his teammates defended him, as Chicago linebacker Brian Urlacher said, “A lot of jealous people watching our game on TV when their season is over. Jay was hurt. We don’t question his toughness. He’s tough as hell. He doesn’t bitch, he doesn’t complain when he gets hit.”

It turned out Cutler had torn his MCL, and soon after, apologies were made and Cutler’s toughness was reinforced.

And in order to make sure we all know Cutler is no pansy, Bears receiver Johnny Knox has confirmed it.

“From what I’ve seen, since I’ve played with him, Jay’s one of the toughest players on this team. He takes some of the most hits,” Knox told XTRA in San Diego (via sportsradiointerviews.com). “When I say that, I’m not taking nothing away from the O-Line, but he takes hits and gets back up and is still making plays. As far as people questioning his heart, I believe he has one of the biggest hearts in the NFL.”

Not only that, but his teammates apparently are huge Cutler fans.

“He’s a great teammate. He takes control when he’s in the huddle,” Knox said. “Everybody gives him their attention and we just love to have him as a teammate.”

At this point, you’d have to wonder if Brock (whose quarterback is Tarvaris Jackson) and Jones-Drew (whose quarterback is Blaine Gabbert) would trade their signal-callers for Cutler. I’m guessing both would.

LOL Chargers fan, how is Cutler's heart now, apparently it is so Big that he lost a thumb because of it. I bet Rivers would of hung his head and sulked after that INT, Rivers is fucking bum, guy singlehandedly tears his own team apart, threw that ball away right to GRAHAM!!!! HA!, he sure looked like the real deal. As for Jay thjrowing his team under the bus, he never does during any press conference I saw, it was Knox's fault he hurt himself but he didn't show it.

If Jay Cutler didn't have the facial features of someone that you just want to "punch out" on sight, no one would have questioned the toughness, no one would have said a word.  You know who's another QB that looks like he needs to be knocked out?

RIVERS.  (That's for you down there, Chargers fan.  And after the Bears decimate your failing team even further this Sunday, you'll probably want to punch him out too.)  Now go get your F*#)%in' shine box.

Jay Cutler has no heart. Sure when his team is winning he looks fine. Wait until they lose and that's when you see the true no heart Cutler who will blame anyone else he can.

at least he wont fumble the ball away when the games on the line
