Jay Cutler doesn't blame Bears fans for booing

Chicago fans booed the Bears on Sunday and Jay Cutler said he doesn't blame them.

The Chicago Bears have taken plenty of criticism recently, but quarterback Jay Cutler said he doesn't blame Bears fans for booing the team on Sunday.

Linebacker Brian Urlacher said it was unbelievable that fans booed on Sunday, but Cutler said it's likely just frustration setting in. Cutler said he can't blame fans for booing because the Bears are not playing very well. Urlacher also voiced his displeasure for the media, which has recently criticized the Bears and called for the firing of head coach Lovie Smith. Cutler said everyone in the locker room supports Smith and the Bears are giving the media too much ammo.

"The media, we're giving them a lot of ammo right now, guys are doing a lot of talking and we're not playing very well," Cutler said, according to ESPN Chicago. "At the end of the day, it falls back on us."

The criticism from the media and fans has come as the Bears have lost five of their last six games. After appearing to be a lock to make the playoffs early in the season, Chicago is now in danger of falling out of the playoff picture. The Bears play the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday and Cutler said the Bears are focused on the Cardinals, not the recent criticism.

"That's the last of our worries. We have to worry about Arizona," Cutler said.
