It seems everyone is weighing in with their opinion on Bears QB Jay Cutler and today it is Jeremy Roenick. The former Blackhawks center called into "The Dan Patrick Show" on Friday to talk about the NHL All-Star Game and the conversation lead to Cutler (fast-forward to the 4:14 mark of the video above).
Roenick on Cutler not playing in second half
I was really disappointed actually. As an athlete and a very proud athlete, when youre in a situation like Cutler wasyoure in the conference finals and you have a chance to go to the Super Bowlat least in my opinion I know how hockey players are. They would have to shoot me to get me out of that game. They would have to cut my legs off to pull me out of that game. I would be taking needle after needle. It would take way more than it took Cutler to get out of that game. It really disappointed me that he went out but what really disappointed me the most and lets take the injury away from it but when youre on the bench and your team is battling to come back and you have a young quarterback in Hanie doing everything he possibly can to get them back in that game. The guy just sat on his (butt) and he wasnt cheering his team. That really bothered me.
