    This made me lol..
    -----------------------------------

    Giants 22, Bears 16
    However, in a world of constant change, it’s comforting to know that we can always count on Jay Cutler never giving a **** about anything.

    Doing just enough to not get fired is the credo of a lot of people in the working world and Cutler is the embodiment of that. He’s the best quarterback in Bears history and he probably can’t even name any other Bears quarterbacks. I doubt he even know the names of most of his teammates. He probably just calls them “boss man” or “hoss.”

    A lot of exemplary employees are driven to perform at a high level due to the fear of possibly losing their job. On the other hand, plenty employees who know they have job security spend their time at their jobs disappointing their friends and family on Facebook and ordering bubble vests online. Cutler is not in danger of losing his job so he can’t even muster the energy to even feign like he even cares. It’s admirable, honestly.

    I had a boss who had a couch in his office that he would take naps on. He would take these naps in the middle of the work day, sometimes with a newspaper draped over his face that he dozed off reading. It was like working for a narcoleptic J. Jonah Jameson. Know why my boss took those naps? Because he ******* could. That’s why.

    Know why Jay Cutler doesn’t give a ****? Because he doesn’t have to. That’s why.

    Week 11’s Bears-Giants game ended with Cutler throwing a late fourth quarter pick in double coverage on second-and-29 while Chicago was down six points. That’s the NFL equivalent of looking at all the work piled up on your desk and muttering “**** this. I’m going to get some curly fries” then leaving your job 15 minutes early.

    Jay Cutler is definitely one of those sociopaths who drinks milk with a steak dinner but he approaches his job like a man of the people. He’s one of us. Minus $115 million or so.

    However, no matter how many parallels us working stiffs would like to draw between ourselves and athletes, the fact remains that we inhabit two different realities.

    For instance, imagine your coworker’s computer crashes. Let’s say this coworker, we’ll just call him Tony Romo, did your company’s expense reports so your boss assigns them to you until Tony’s computer is up and running again. You do such a great job that your boss decides to keep you on expense report duty and strips Tony of that responsibility.

    In your office’s next meeting, Tony calmly states, with no malicious intent, that he believes the company can be more successful with him doing the expense reports because he’s better at them than you. In the 9 to 5 world, that’s an ******* move. In the sports world, that’s commendable. It’s viewed as the mark of a competitor.

    None of us would want to work with a Tony Romo, but we all would want our team’s quarterback to approach the game the way he does. None of us want Jay Cutler as our team’s quarterback, but plenty of us approach our job the way he approaches his.

    Now what if I told you (here’s where you use the 30 for 30 narrator’s voice again) that you would probably enjoy a tall, cold glass of milk with a nice cut of ribeye too?

    Until next week, internet friends.

    Is this some type of joke and the sheer audacity of this idiot blogger to even compare Cutler to Romo not even in the same area code if this guy is insinuating that Romo, was always a choker like Culter then he has little to no credibility at all "no one would want to work with Tony" , that is why my circle is small when it comes to sports conversations because garbage like this that are spewed by people everyday.

    Eh, it's a bit of a reach... and that's coming from someone who is on record as saying Tony's speech was ill-advised. That isn't what Tony set out to do.

    Uh, the writer portrays Cutler and Romo as opposites, so I don't see the issue with the comparison.

    Cutler looks like he hangs out in the Tennessee hills drinking Jack Daniels and smoking Marlboros up until kickoff. His demeanor is a turnoff to the point that I'm surprised any NFL team signed him to a $115m contract.
