Jay Cutler Dominates: Jay and Aaron Rodgers go H2H

This week’s installment of “Jay Cutler Dominates” features an exclusive battle between Chicago Bears’ QB Jay Cutler and the Green Bay Packers’ Aaron Rodgers. Yes, that Aaron Rodgers…the one who is the NFL’s all-time leader in passer rating both in the regular season (97.5) and the postseason (112.6) and that he holds the NFL’s lowest interception percentage during the regular season.

If you can recall, Rodgers did put up some below average statistics against the Bears last season in the NFC Championship game while Cutler dominated with 80 passing yards and an interception.

So, yeah. Jay Cutler Dominates.

But forgot about the past because today we’re looking at last Sunday’s game where the Bears and Packers battled it out at historic (but now looks foreign) Solider Field.

1. Rodgers’ 2nd TD Pass to Jermichael Finley VS Cutler’s TD Pass to Dane Sanzenbacher

Rodgers, once again, finds Jermichael Finley in the endzone for six. You might think “Oh hey, great bootleg to the right to buy some time. Great spot-on throw. Overall nice play.” But I think “You’ve already thrown it to Finley once for a TD earlier in the game, why do it again?”

This clearly shows how unoriginal Rodgers’ play can be.

Besides, is it really that great of a throw? I don’t think so. Finley is pretty wide open. A deaf, dumb, and blind kid could make that throw.

Cutler’s throw, on the other hand, is a thing of beauty.

The Bears are threatening, the offense is selling pass, and the defense is waiting for it, but Cutler is still able to gunsling a pass over the middle, which is surrounded by four Packer defensemen, whom all fail to pick up Dane Sazenbacher. Very weak coverage leads to a TD.

Put another TD on Cutler’s stats, baby! 

2. Rodgers’ Inability to Throw it to Anyone Else vs Cutler’s Ability to Throw it to Different Players

Rodgers continues his trend of ignoring every other soul on the field. Where’s the diversity in this Green Packers team?? I am beginning to think there is none!

Does Cutler fall into the same ol’ boring routine?? NO!

Cutler finds his big man tight end Kellen Davis for a 32-yard TD. At the 20 second mark you can see Cutler in his “I know I am badass” look, as he struts confidently to the sideline.

Put another TD on the stat sheet, baby!! 

Final Score: Cutler 2 – Rodgers 0

Jay Cutler’s dominant stats after three weeks:

  • Passer Rating: 82.4
  • Yards: 858
  • TDs: 5
  • INTs: 0 (NFL has still failed to fix the typo that says Cutler has 3 int)

  1. This is the only game that all of the TD's were thrown to the same person. If a guys open, he's open. Why should he try to throw to someone he may not make the throw to when he can throw it to someone who is open? Go review some of the other games and you can see amazing throws to plenty of other people. Nelson had numerous long yard catches this game and you aren't putting them up.

    Anyone can use stats to make something look one way when it isn't. Bravo on proving that and nothing else.

    Ummm… this blog is a joke right? This can't possibly be serious…

  3. First time on this site, and even I can tell this segment, "Jay Cutler Dominates" is tongue and cheek. How anyone can think this is 100% serious, I will never know. He even says that Cutler has yet to throw an int. That should be a pretty big clue that the author is kidding.
