|Cutler Shrugs Off Cricitism
|BOURBONNAIS, Ill. (AP) -- No stranger to criticism, Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler wasn't sure how to react to the barrage that hit him during the NFC championship game.
He was under siege, and this time, the biggest shots weren't coming from the opponent. They were coming from cyberspace.
Cutler's toughness had never been questioned, yet current and former players were calling him out for sitting out most of the second half of a 21-14 NFC title game loss to eventual Super Bowl champion Green Bay last season because of a sprained ligament in his left knee.
Cutler reported to training camp Friday and said his toughness has "never been an issue" and he "didn't really know how to react" to the criticism. He also said his knee is better.
