Jay Cutler on sideline spat with Mike Tice: 'It's not anything'

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Bears' quarterback Jay Cutler tried to down play his exchange with Mike Tice when speaking after the game

One of the few points of drama for the Chicago Bears during their 34-18 win over the Dallas Cowboys came from an awkward exchange between quarterback Jay Cutler and offensive coordinator Mike Tice. Tice came over to talk to Cutler after the Bears failed to convert a third and one, but Cutler abruptly stood up and walked off as soon as Tice sat down. Speaking after the game, Cutler down played the event as meaningless:

"It's not anything," Cutler said. "I don't have to sit by (Tice) the whole game, do I? We can't read into everything. ... You can't blow up every headline. Things happen during football games. Just because I walk off and get water doesn't mean much."

Cutler has a history of sideline histrionics, but in the grand scheme of things, this seems relatively minor. It also didn't seem to affect the Bears offense, as Cutler went 18-24 for 275 yards and two touchdowns against an upper echelon NFL defense.
