Jay Cutler Disrespects Denver Fans


The drama king is back grabbing headlines in Denver. This time, Jay Cutler commented on the loyalty of fans that show up for Bears practices compared to Broncos practices.

“In Denver, we didn’t have this many fans at all. We weren’t even able to accommodate that many fans (at practice). That’s Chicago Bears fans for you. They’re proud of their Bears.”

Of course you’re going to have more fans show up at practice, genius! Chicago’s metropolitan population is about 9.5 million while Denver’s is 2.5 million. Inevitably you’re going to have more people show up to Bears practices.

The more striking part of this interview was when Cutler said,

“It’s a lot (different). Denver’s like a 6 and Chicago’s like a 9. It’s a quite bit different. Just the fans and how passionate they are, that’s probably the biggest difference.” (Denver Post)

There’s no question that Chicago is a great sports town. They’re passionate about all their teams, even the Cubs, but that’s not what I’m addressing here. What I want to talk about is Cutler’s need for attention. Well Cutler, your personality is a 6, your ability to convert in the red zone is a 6, your interview skills are a 6 (you know, you know, you know), and your haircut - well, I’ll just leave that one alone.

The guy is in some serious need of attention. If I were him, I’d be concerned about my season right now and focus on that area of my life. Why introduce more drama into your life by giving an answer like that in an interview. Even if you have ill feelings towards a city that you previously played in, you give the typical athlete answer, and say “fans in both cities are great, I’m happy to be in Chicago.” That’s what most athletes would’ve said, but Cutler thinks his shit doesn’t stink, so he made those remarks.

Most fans in Denver loved Cutler, and even stood up for his childish antics this off season. We wanted him to stay, talked him up, and called Pat Bowlen and Josh McDaniels ignorant when they made the trade. Now I can honestly say, as a passionate Broncos fan, I don’t want a guy like that representing my Broncos. After all, the Broncos are a stand-up organization that Cutler doesn’t deserve to be a part of.

    Here’s what you have to love abut Cutler. He proudly displays his IQ on his uniform.
    What an idiot! Good riddance, Jay-Buzzard!

  • TrueBroncoFan

    The truth hurts, and Cutler speaks it… I’ve been to Chicago, and we have nothing on them in terms of fan intensity and over all love for their players and teams… He’s probably pissed at all of the fans that hated on him when he took a stand for himself… I don’t blame him… Denver fans support their organizations blindly and disregard the players plights… If my boss lied to my face and he looked liked the kid who got his lunch money taken; I’d be pissed too!!!

    Hey “genius”!

    Bears’ practices are held at Olivet Nazarene University, over an hour drive (through corn fields) from Chicago.

    Where is Englewood again? Part of that 2.5 million metropolitan area?

    Hmmm…

    Cutler was the one not returning phone calls but I admit, both sides were childish in their actions.

    Also, it takes most people in the Denver metro area at least 45 minutes to get to the Broncos practice facility so you’ve got nothing there!

    Cutler got off easy with the media here in Denver. Wait until he chokes and and everyone in the city is against him. What’s he going to say then?

    “Also, it takes most people in the Denver metro area at least 45 minutes to get to the Broncos practice facility so you’ve got nothing there!”

    Are you so dense to believe that it doesn’t take even more time to make a similar drive in Chicago? The traffic in Denver is not even comparable. The hour-plus drive south is in addition to the obvious in-town driving (meaning in total, depending where you’re at, it could be 2.5 hours or more before you get there). Not to mention that there are zero buses, trains, etc, to make the trip. It’s by car, or nothing.

    Denver practice facility IN the immediate area.

    Chicago practice facility IN a backwater hellhole 60 miles or so outside the suburbs.

    Do I need to draw a diagram?

  • Kim

    The drive time doesn’t even matter anymore – 9 million v. 2 million is all I’m saying.

    I’m not trying to prove Bears fans aren’t as passionate. I’ll I’m saying is Cutler hasn’t even played a real game in Chicago, so he’s got no room to speak!

    Well that’s an interesting article and i believe Jay Cutler is really directing any jabs against Denver directly at it’s management and not necessarily the fans. I attended a training camp 2 days ago in Chicago and there were thousands of fans waiting just to see Jay Cutler walk to the field and it is a little ridiculous just how passionate the fans were to see him….Chicago is a very blue collar city and people LIVE for the Bears. It is what we talk about all day everyday during work and it is all many of us look forward to every Sunday or game day. Denver is an awesome city but honestly I’d be just as excited to go skiing or mountain biking, or hiking…football in the fall and winter is what Chicago revolves around, that’s it.

    I completely agree that Chicago is a great sports city. I’ve been to a Cubs game and everything about the experience is incredible. I’m sure going to a Bears game when it’s snowing outside would be awesome too. But it’s time for Cutler to quit thinking about Denver, grow up, and get ready for his season. If he doesn’t do well, he’s going to be calling Chicago’s media a 6 when they rip him to shreds!
