Have no fear, Jay Cutler.
Charles Barkley is here to save you from the critics!
Barkley went after the players who attacked Cutler on The Waddle & Silvy Show on ESPN 1000 in Chicago.
“I was mad at the players, to be honest with you,” Barkley said Tuesday. 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. That crosses the line, because you don’t know. If you go back and start looking at all the stuff that’s been said, and clearly one of the more vocal critics was Maurice Jones-Drew, and then you find out he missed the last two games with a bad knee. And he was really the first guy who crucified Jay. You have to be careful, because in the two most important games of the year, he sat out with a bad knee. And then it really makes him look like an idiot now.”
I never thought I would say this, but can we just start with the Super Bowl hype and let this Cutler story die already?
