The replay showed it over again, although it was worth a few looks: Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, kneeling down to tie left tackle JMarcus Webbs shoe during the fourth quarter of the teams 28-10 victory over the Minnesota Vikings
It was an amusing gesture, and one that Cutler said tapped into his inner dad.
I loosened it and tied it. I think my fatherly instincts were kicking in, Cutler said. "I was trying to keep the drive going so we wouldnt have to burn a timeout, but we burned it anyway.
Still, it was a light-hearted moment late in a game the Bears controlled from the start. And it gave his teammates reason to chuckle.
It was kind of funny. For the simple fact that Webb is like 10 feet tall and Jays 3 feet tall compared to him, right tackle Jonathan Scott said. It was interesting to see.
Wide receiver Brandon Marshall agreed.
I dont know if thats Cutler-like, Marshall said, but it was pretty cool and we were all cheering in the huddle.
