LOTD: Bobby Wade Says Brian Urlacher Called Jay Cutler a “Pussy”, Blogger Quarrel Ensues

Bobby Wade says Brian Urlacher called Jay Cutler a pussyAh, back to sports reality after a brief afternoon trip elsewhere. But you know, a wise man once said that “sometimes to maintain your sanity, you have to lose it for a moment.” (Actually, that’s not true…I just made it up and no wise men ever said it as far as I know.)

A lot of interesting stories have broken this afternoon, but none more interesting than the fallout from Bobby Wade’s contention that Brian Urlacher called Jay Cutler a pussy.  From PFT:

Wade told our pal Paul Allen of KFAN within the hour that, during an offseason trip to Vegas with Bears middle linebacker Brian Urlacher, Urlacher expressed a not-so-flattering opinion of new Bears quarterback Jay Cutler.

Basically, Wade said that Urlacher said that Cutler is a “pussy.”

Predictably, Bears supporters have rallied against Pro Football Talk for even mentioning the Bobby-Wade-said-Brian-Urlacher-called-Jay-Cutler-a-pussy story:

You’d think with ProFootballTalk’s heralded move under the NBC peacock’s plumage that they would up the ante in providing smart, in-depth coverage of the NFL.

Nah.

This then prompted a hilarious retort from Pro Football Talk in discussing Tommie Harris’ tweet about the issue and defending itself for reporting the Bobby-Wade-said-Brian-Urlacher-called-Jay-Cutler-a-pussy story:

Look, all we’re doing is reporting what Wade said on the air. So even if some dude who uses his best contemplative senior picture (he should have stuck with the “ninth grade dorky smile mom plastered down my hair with a handful of spit” pose) at the Chicago Sun-Times thinks that it’s not newsworthy, it was — and it is.

Especially if it’s true.

Final verdict? Who the hell cares if Urlacher said it or not. Wade said that he said it, it’s news, and it’s going to make the first meeting of the two teams pretty damn interesting. (Besides, it’s not like Cutler hasn’t been called derogatory names before.)

And now, onto other links from around the sports world today, beginning with updates on the flurry of trade activity that’s gone down.

  1. Who cares if he did or not. I gurantee someone on the Bears D will call him that once or twice more before the season starts.

    That senior picture comment was a nice touch.

  2. Jay is on my fantasy team. He better step up his team chemistry

  3. Hmmm, has there ever been a team where the Defense loved the Offense and everyone sat around singing together?? Okay, Super Bowl shuffle aside.

    Urlacher is trying to set the tone for Cutler. Letting him know that you are now on the Bears and blood will be shed in battle so get ready. The best thing that Cutler can do is to keep his mouth shut and be the best quarterback he can be. Then when a pressure situation arises just lead his men into battle and score.

    For the record I think that Cutler will not put up good numbers running Ron Turner’s offense. It is too complicated and does not use the players skills effectively.
