Bears' Jay Cutler explain sideline spat with offensive coordinator Mike Tice

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Chicago Bears quarterback downplayed a perceived rift between him and the team's offensive coordinator.

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler was caught by ESPN's cameras seemingly ignoring offensive coordinator Mike Tice after the Bears failed to convert a third down during their game against the Dallas Cowboys on Monday night. During the exchange, Tice sat down next to Cutler on the team's bench, likely to discuss the failed play, but Cutler immediately got up and walked away. Cutler said on the radio on Monday that it's much ado about nothing:

"It wasn't anything about Mike," Cutler said during "The Jay Cutler Show" on ESPN 1000. "We got into a third-and-1 situation. We'd talked about getting in third-and-short all week, and we didn't convert. A crucial point in the game where we didn't convert."

Cutler also said that he and Tice soon worked out the minor dispute, and there is no problem between him and the coordinator. This came on the heels of a controversy stemming from Cutler berating offensive tackle J'Marcus Webb on the sideline during Chicago's loss to the Green Bay Packers.
