FOX cameras caught Jay Cutler allegedly cursing fans who booed the quarterback and his offense's poor performance in the first half of the team's win on Sunday. He took to the ESPN Radio Chicago airwaves to discuss what really happened.
After FOX cameras caught Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler allegedly cursing fans who were booing the team's offense in the first half of their game against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, the seven-year veteran made an attempt to explain his actions in an interview with Waddle and Silvy of ESPN Radio Chicago.
Cutler and the Bears' offense only managed to muster seven points through the first three quarters of their 23-22 comeback win over the Panthers, and the Bears faithful let the team hear it, showering them with boos as they entered the tunnel at halftime.
When asked about how he felt about the booing, Cutler told ESPN Radio Chicago, "Chicago fans know it was a lousy performance. We know it's a lousy performance, and hopefully when we come back on the Sunday night game [against the Houston Texans on Nov. 11], we'll do better for them."
Waddle and Silvy asked Cutler to comment on whether the cursing that was caught on camera was directed toward Bears fans, and Cutler replied, "No, I was mad at the offense. I was mad at my performance and us as a group."
Things got slightly heated when Waddle and Silvy ignored Cutler's response and accused the quarterback of cursing at fans. Cutler retorted, "Is this court? Are we in court right now? Are you a judge and jury? I'm not going to get involved with it. I can't control these things, what websites say. So we should have been booed. Rightfully so, we got booed and we have to get better. That's that."
Cutler and the Bears head to Tennessee to take on the Titans on Sunday at LP Field. Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET and the game will be televised on FOX.
