Hot Routes 1.25.11: Still more talk on Cutler

  • Perhaps one reason why NFL players and some media ripped Jay Cutler to shreds for not playing most of the second half of Sunday’s game: he comes across as awfully aloof and doesn’t allow anyone to know him. Maybe even his fellow NFL players.
  • NFL.com’s Albert Breer breaks the story that Bears QB Todd Collins – you might know him better as Caleb Hanie’s warmup act – suffered a shoulder injury Sunday and he might need surgery. Meaning his 16-year career is very much in jeopardy.
  • Titans RB Stafon Johnson is suing his alma mater, USC, for negligence. He alleges that the weightlifting accident that crushed his larynx and threatened his NFL career was the result of carelessness by former assistant strength coach Jamie Yancher.
  • The Broncos have hired former Saints DB coach Dennis Allen to be their new defensive coordinator. Allen was considered a candidate for the Eagles defensive coordinator position as well.

Hot Routes 1.25.11: Still more talk on Cutler

Funny Bronson, I would think that since the Pats being 2-5 in playoff games since the cheating scandal, that doesn't make them worthy of any kind of "envy"... Even if Brady was capable of an 80 yard, two-minute game-winning TD drive like Ben was able to orchestrate without having to lean on an kicker to win it, the fact remains that the Steelers are down 3-2 in SBs if you're counting years back to the games played during the Super Bowl Thirty-Something era. "If" the Steelers win in a 3rd time in North Texas (which will equate to 3 in the span of 5 years), it's pretty obvious who the "envious" ones will be under the circumstances. Surprised

Hot Routes 1.25.11: Still more talk on Cutler

I went and read the article by Gerry Callahan about Ben Roethlisberger.  Its obvious he still has some Tom Brady man juice on his chin.

He absolutely hates Ben.  And I can see why, he just did what the great Tom Brady couldn't - Beat the Jets in the Playoffs.  Oh, yeah - he's also won two Super Bowls without knowing the other teams defesive plays.

He talked about how how Ben wins becasue of the defense when Brady owes everything to a kicker and the worst call in the history of football.  Just how many Super winning TOUCH DOWN drives has Brady lead?  None, Nada, Zilch.

The point is to win the game.  Period.  Yes Brady & Manning put up better stats but in the end all that matters is the win.  Ben does that just fine and IF he wins his 3rd Superbowl should be considered one of the top QBs in the league.  Not just a good QB that wins with defense.

Maybe Bronson it's because your a jealous idiot that is looking for anything, real or imagined, to bring Ben down. Even in his protected circles, I'm sure this bad publicity and comments from garbage like you still reaches him. Does it make you feel good? Ever dealt with beauracrats before? If you give them an inch they will take a mile (except in OJ's case, where race baited jury selection trumped justice). If there was ANYTHING of merit in the GA case, Ben would facing a trial. You know ... if the gal was truly raped, and money silenced her, whats that make her? A whoar? ... yes ... and the Las Vegas case? Please. That broad was a gold digger if there ever was one. Admit that your a jealous 'tard, k?

I don't care about ancient history, TheClass_Rox. In terms of contemporary "dynasties", Pittsburgh's argument will be null and void if they don't beat Green Bay. As of right now, they're limited to potshots about spygate. Although when someone brings up the fact that their serial rapist QB played poorly in their win or asks how much they greased the officials to give them Super Bowl 40, they get a little touchy.

And why give a Super Bowl count for just this decade??  Doesn't the history of the league matter pre 2000?  Pats are 3-3 and Steelers are 6-1.   You need to look at the whole picture, otherwise don't be a fan. 
It really doesn't matter, but it makes it worse when you are only looking at narrow selected "to make yourself" look better history.  Bring back Patriot Pat!

Last time I checked, the Patriots were 0-3 in playoff games since they got busted for cheating!

Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette and all of Steeler Nation are unimpressed with every quarterback who sat at home and watched Ben Roethlisberger do enough to beat the Jets in the playoffs and especially those that CHOKED at home in playoff games against the Jets!!

You see, this is why it’s hard to like the Steelers for very long. Even though Pats fans were rooting for Pittsburgh, Steeler fans still can’t resist slamming the Pats somehow. Is your case of Patriot penis envy really as severe as the Jets? Hey steelgrlstuckin, why don’t you worry about your team beating Green Bay before putting yourself on the same pedestal as New England. Last time I checked, the Super Bowl count was still 3 to 2 this decade.

You know who’s not impressed with  QB ? The Gerry Callahan.

@steelpit45

Callahan's actually been at it for a while and I can tell you that he's a lot better than anyone on this site. You should also know that almost all of New England was rooting for the Steelers on Sunday because the enemy of our enemy is our friend, so any bad blood coming from Steeler fans recently against the Pats seems kind of unwarranted. And it may come as a surprise but Callahan isn't alone in disliking Big Ben. He never once said the Steelers weren't a good team but that doesn't mean he has to like their quarterback who has very little about him worth liking.

Hot Routes 1.25.11: Still more talk on Cutler

I dont think anybody thought he was fine enough to drop back, plant, scramble, etc.  I do think that MOST people believe that he was fine to throw - just throw--kinda like Phillip Rivers did with a torn ACL vs. NE.  Whats bad is not that he tried to hang tough and it was just too much--it is that he did not even give it a go (One 3 and out, in which he looked ok--I mean, he left the field able to put weight on both legs), and then --THATS IT.  You say, there were medical professionals who advised him not to play.  Answer me this as HONESTLY as you can.  If medical professionals RECOMMENDED Brady, Rivers, Manning, Vick, Brees, etc...they not play, what do you think the outcome would have been--honestly?  I believe ALL the above, and others would have  pushed themselves -and disregarded the medical RECOMMENDATION- and maybe they could have played throught it--maybe not.  BUT AT LEAST THEY WOULD HAVE TRIED!  Thats all.  BTW--to answer your question why players shot their mouths off so quickly is #1 - b/c it LOOKED like Cutler could walk, and stand, (and throw) but didnt even give it a go, and #2 - b/c he is unliked by a lot of players, so they use this as an opportunity to bash.
