Jay Cutler does stuff like this. It’s his Cutlerness. He just can’t help himself. In this case it cost his team 15 penalty yards. That slowed their scoring drive. And a little later Cutler’s buddy Brandon Marshall ran backward after a reception, completely killing the drive. The Bears got a field goal to go up 10-3. And Cutler haters have a little more ammo.
Sometimes Cutler gets too much heat for what is perceived as a poor attitude but in this case he deserves it. That was just dumb. Gotta keep your head there. Marshall should get slammed for his subsequent dumb decision to run backward after the catch. Guy trying to make a big play I realize but, take the yards when they’re there. Way things are going for the Vikings, these mistakes probably won’t matter.
