Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler made a public plea asking fans of the team to quiet down when the team has possession in the red zone, as ESPN Chicago reports. Speaking with reporters on Monday after the Bears' 41-20 win over the Indianapolis Colts, Cutler made an apparent PSA to Bears fans that attend games:
Please, please, please, let's tone it down a little bit when we're down on the 20. You're more than welcome to yell and scream and do whatever you want to do after we score, but please let's go ahead and quiet the stadium down and save it until after we score... Thank you. PSA.
Cutler, given additional freedom to audible at the line of scrimmage this year, rebounded from a poor start to put up some pretty solid numbers - 333 yards passing and two touchdowns- against the Colts. He understandably wants to be able to communicate with his teammates so close to the end zone, but fans likely won't quiet down too much.
