Bobby Wade told Paul Allen on KFAN earlier today that Brian Urlacher thinks new Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is a word that rhymes with “wussy.” Certain Bears players aren’t convinced Urlacher ever said this though, or at least are doing a good job of pretending they don’t think he did. Tommie Harris, for instance, tweeted this at PFT’s Mike Florio, the man who broke the p-word story in the first place:
lac [Urlacher] didn’t say that u guys are full of it and tell bobby Wade will see about that…..
Oh, so Tommie Harris thinks Bobby Wade is a lair? Maybe Tommie thinks Bobby fabricated the story just to make trouble in the Bears locker room?
Sorry, but I believe Bobby Wade. I think Urlacher did say that about Cutler, and now the Bears are in damage-control mode. They know how fragile Cutler’s ego is; they saw plenty of evidence in the way he reacted to stuff in Denver, including his perceived snubbing by Josh McDaniels. They know that pretty much anything can set Cutler off, even something trivial like this. I’m actually shocked he hasn’t already demanded a trade.
Brett Favre isn’t the only drama-queen quarterback the Vikings are lucky to have missed out on this off-season. Good luck Bears, trying to win a division with this prickly, sulking weenie running the offense. You were better off with Kyle Orton. He sucked but at least you didn’t have to worry about him tearing the locker room apart.
