Former Chicago Bears DE Calls Out Jay Cutler

Jay Cutler struggled on Thursday night, but he has been drawing more criticism for his actions and attitude rather than his poor play. Joining those with criticism for Cutler on Friday was former Bears defensive end Adewale Ogunleye.

"If you are not doing your job, yeah, someone should be allowed to get in your face," Ogunleye, a former team captain, said during an interview on the Mully & Hanley Show Friday morning on WSCR-AM 670. "But if you live in a glass house, you can't throw any stones." (via Chicago Tribune)

"So the way I am looking at the game, no one is yelling at Jay when he is throwing the ball three (four) times to their defenders. And you've got to have some sense of accountability. At the end of the day, you start losing the respect of your teammates, you start losing the respect of that offensive line when publicly you're bumping people and yelling at them in their face. I don't think it is the right thing to do."

Cutler has drawn the most criticism for intentionally bumping into offensive tackle J'Marcus Webb while yelling at the lineman after he gave up one of his 3.5 sacks allowed on the night.
