Have we reached the breaking point on Sulking Jay Cutler?

    ESPN.com's Kevin Seifert thinks we've reached the point where the general public no longer gives a fuck.

    ESPN poll asks "Does the media make too much out of Jay Cutler's behavior?"

    Yes is at 93 percent.

    I posted the AP story off last night's game that focused on Cutler *possibly* walking away from OC Mike Tice during the game, a game that was one of the best of his career, on national television. It's one thing if he does what he did to Webb in the midst of an overall meltdown against the Packers, but it's getting to the point — to me, anyway — that it's just lazy narrative chasing. There was plenty to write about that game last night. Writing 15 inches on the latest *possible* Cutler incident is starting to make the media look a little too TMZ-y for my taste.

    Next on NFL Live! Does Tony Romo lose because he smiles too much or because he wears his hat backwards? Merril Hoge and Trent Dilfer debate!

    It's because he dated too many pop tarts early in his career.

    He didn't wear any pink last night did he? Karma!

    The Chicago media was hit and miss on this.

    Dan Pompei said the result is all that matters:

    http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/football/bears/ct-spt-1002-pompei-column-bears--20121002,0,4544766.column

    David Haugh had a brief tsk-tsk in his column:

    http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/football/bears/ct-spt-1002-haugh-column-bears--20121002,0,893142.column

    Of course, Steve Rosenbloom is a fucking hack, and has been for a long time:

    And Rick Morrissey continues to suck, no matter which Chicago paper he writes for:

    http://www.suntimes.com/sports/15495573-419/morrissey-jay-cutlers-dissing-of-mike-tice-a-real-downer.html

    Telander skipped it entirely:

    So did Sean Jensen:

    The Chicago radio guys have mostly said "Who cares? They won" today.

    Of course, the lazy national people were all over it, including Ryan Russillo, who I normally like.

    Damien Woody made a good point on NFL Live today, after Bruschi launched into a thing about "What am I going to tell my kids about how to play the game when this is who they're watching?" when he said what I thought was a very fair point: What if Cutler is walking away just to calm down and avoid a confrontation? It's that better than blowing up on the sidelines at Tice because you're pissed he can't get the plays in on time?

    In general, I think sideline football blowups are so overplayed. Football is way too emotional to be asked to play nice and be polite all the time. I honestly think football people understand what a insignificant thing it is to get into a snit on the sidelines, which might be why Telender didn't bother with it. I'd like to believe that's why, anyway.

    And unless the parties involved are completely forthright about what happened — and they never are — there's no way to tell, like you said, in an instance like this latest one, if there was anything to to it.

    I think if we've learned anything, it's that Tedy Bruschi sucks at his new job. He played for one of the biggest cocksuckers in NFL history and he's worried about Cutler giving his kids a bad impression?

    I don't know what's worse ... obsessing over Jay Cutler or Bears fans obsessing over the media obsessing over Jay Cutler. :D

    FWIW, I enjoy Steve Rosenbloom's "Rosenblog" and try to read it at least a couple times a week...
