Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler gets testy with reporters

Jay Cutler showed frustration with some questions asked of him on Thursday.

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler hasn't always been a favorite of the media, and on Thursday he again displayed why.

Cutler was asked by a reporter if he felt he was forcing the ball to receiver Brandon Marshall, and Cutler decided that the best approach to answering that question was to get short with the reporter.

Asked if Marshall was getting extra attention from opposing defenses, Cutler responded by playing dumb. When the reporter attempted to clarify his question, Cutler had the following to say in response (via CSN Chicago):

I need to know specifics like…what are you getting at? I don’t know. It depends on what coverage it is. It depends on a lot of things. There’s a lot of variables. You can’t just make a vague statement of ‘if they’re playing and they’re giving him extra attention, can you go to him?’ It depends what route it is, what coverage it is, what’s the down and distance? There’s a lot of things that go into it.

Cutler makes some decent points, but the manner in which he does so won't help endear him to the Chicago media. He can avoid some questions like that in the future by completing more of his passes, though, and he'll have the chance to begin doing just that when the Bears play the Cowboys on Monday Night Football.

Kickoff on Monday night is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. CT, and the game will be televised on ESPN.
