Bobby Wade was not simply making idle chit-chat when he revealed Brian Urlacher‘s feelings about Jay Cutler – he was deliberately trying to stir things up. And he succeeded. I know because, two days out from the whole affair, stories are still being posted about how it’s not a big deal, and everything’s fine between Urlacher and Cutler, and Bobby Wade is just a lying idiot who is going to get hit in the face somewhere down the road.
Of course I’m not suggesting this is a big distraction for the Bears or anything; I’m just saying I think it’s hilarious that Wade can make some remark on the radio and the ripples can still be propagating outward 48 hours after the fact. Ain’t the media great?
Jay Cutler probably doesn’t think so.
But Jay has put on his happy face anyway. “There’s nothing between [Urlacher and me],” Cutler told reporters soon after he reported to camp. “I just want to put that to rest. There never has been anything between us.”
Let’s see how long Happy Face Cutler lasts in Chicago. Cause he didn’t last long in Denver.
