Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

In interviews this week, Devin Hester and Brandon Marshall stuck up for their quarterback, Jay Cutler, saying there's no one else they'd rather have

Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is often criticized for his demeanor, but teammates Devin Hester and Brandon Marshall stuck up for him this week in radio interviews. The two said that there's no one else they'd rather have at quarterback for the Bears.

Hester downplayed Cutler's history of sideline antics:

"I think Jay is the best quarterback that's going to fit our team," Hester said on "The Carmen, Jurko & Harry Show." "He's an emotional quarterback, and when you have a quarterback like that, that's willing to do whatever it takes to win, you get emotional. And that's just the nature of the beast, when you have a guy who's willing and has a passion for the love of the game, you're going to get emotional at times and you're going to flare up every now and then."

Brandon Marshall, on why Cutler is so closely analyzed in Chicago:

"No I'm not (surprised)," Marshall said on "The Carmen, Jurko & Harry Show. "There are two reasons why. One, we're in Chicago, (which is) what, the second-biggest sports market in America. And two, (Cutler) doesn't look like your typical quarterback."

By "typical quarterback," Marshall made reference to the differences in how Cutler conducts himself versus Tom Brady or Peyton Manning, and how people criticize Cutler simply because his actions don't line up with their expectations.
