Former Pittsburgh Steelers coach Bill Cowher is the latest to lob criticism at Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler for his sideline antics during Thursday night's 23-10 loss to the Green Bay Packers. Cutler yelled at his teammates and bumped offensive tackle J'Marcus Webb, prompting criticism of the hotheaded QB from several sources, including his own teammates.
Cowher's criticism of Cutler on the CBS pregame show may have been the most severe yet, suggesting that the Bears may be forced to consider getting rid of Cutler if the Bears struggle or he doesn't show more responsibility.
"He’s had some protection issues. I know there’s been some questionable [play] calling. But they brought players in to help this guy win a championship, and he’s going to [have to] prove to be more accountable — not sensationalize every little mistake with his antics and body language.
"He’s a good quarterback. But if he does not change his ways and this team does not go to the playoffs, they have to consider changing. He has to change."
