    Jay Cutler- You Can't Help Who You Love

    Article from ESPN Chicago today. Explains my Love for Cutty

    his story appears in ESPN The Magazine's Sept. 2 NFL Preview. Subscribe today!

    I LOVE JAY CUTLER. I don't mean love the way teenage girls mean it, "luv" in big bubble letters, baby-faced idol love. My love is singular, and it will never be outgrown. I don't mean love the way a craftsman might admire a perfect object. My love is not so mathematical. I don't mean love the way the hunter loves the lion or the sailor loves the sea. My love is fearless. I don't even mean love the way I love my children, because my children sometimes make it hard to love them, but I always love Jay Cutler.

    I'm being serious. Maybe you can't understand my love, or believe in it, but that doesn't make it any less real. Looking back, I can't remember the moment I fell for him, because it wasn't instantaneous, some crush doomed to fizzle. My love was built slowly but to last, like a railway. I know it didn't begin when he was at Vanderbilt, because who gives a crap about Vanderbilt? It must have started when he was in Denver. But even then my love was not complete, perhaps because he was all promise, and true love, enduring love, is what comes after the promise of it. Love isn't love until it can survive routine, Sunday after crushing Sunday.

    No, our love -- I sometimes say "our" instead of "my," because I believe Jay Cutler would love me back, if only he answered my letters and accepted my calls -- was born in Chicago, where he always belonged. I will confess that my love is partly aesthetic: He was made to wear a Bears uniform, or it was made for him. Cutler and Chicago are a perfect confluence of man and city, two weary second-placers somehow still flush with the hope that this year they will be first.

    I would guess my love became full on just such a bittersweet day, in November 2011, when he was often brilliant against the Chargers, but he also broke his thumb. In his postgame news conference, Cutler sat behind the microphone, wearing a white cardigan that would have made a laughingstock of a less confident man, his hair magnificent as usual, and he was asked about a touchdown pass he'd threaded to tight end Kellen Davis. "It's a window," he said with his dreamy smirk. "I know I'm going to fit it in there. I've never questioned it and I never will."

    Therein lies the truth of our love: We're both blind to anything that might threaten it. Cutler can't see the men who will intercept him, because he refuses to accept that such men might exist. His arm is too good for nongods to stop him. And my own love won't let me see those same impossible interceptions, even when there are four or five of them in a single game and the score indicates that they must have taken place. My mind turns them into completed passes thrown to players who put on the wrong shirts.

    Whenever Cutler does or says something that maddens others, I find only buttresses for my affection. When he shoved left tackle J'Marcus Webb during a game last September, I saw a passionate man on his way to being sacked seven times. (When Peyton Manning glowers, it's called leadership; when Jay Cutler does, it's petulance.) I am likewise deaf to the accusations of Cutler's softness. Yes, he left midway through the 2010 NFC championship game with a knee sprain, but the following season he survived a brutal tackle by Ndamukong Suh, who buried him into the ground. Cutler could not have been blamed for being dead, never mind on the sideline. Instead, he played on.

    And yet some people still look at him and see apathy; they Photoshop cigarettes between his fingers and smoke coming out of his mouth. Maybe that's the real reason I reserve so much of my love for Jay Cutler: He can seem so selective with his. It's a mistake to think he doesn't care about anything. I believe he cares so deeply about only a few things that his soul doesn't have room for anything else. He loves football, throwing footballs in particular, and he apparently loves some tiny blond woman from TV and their baby boy. That nothing else catches hold in him -- including what any of us think -- is his gift, not his curse. We should all be so lucky to have such single-minded hearts.

    Why do I love Jay Cutler? Because he has taught me that it's not who or what we love that matters. It matters only that we do love, and that we are certain in it.
    First time posting an article. Hope I didn't fail too hard.

    I love JC....but it's time to lead this team to a SB win. He may be learning a new offense, but this is the most complete team he's been on, IMO.

    Yeah, it really is time to expect more from him. I don't need an instant league-leading offense starting at week 1, because I know these things take time. But I do expect playoffs and playing the best football this team has ever played collectively since he came here around the end of the regular season and playoff push (pending health of key players of course.) That said, I'm pumped for the season and near future!

    Everything seems to be in place for him to deliver this year. One of the most talented bear offenses on paper I can remember. Not to mention an expected top 5 defense which should help the offense. I'm anticipating a career year from cuddler.

    This is the place for a story though I was talking to a coworker who found out I was a bears fan. He said his buddy went to vandy and was a bears fan too. His buddy was down there for something after the bears traded for cutty and was pissing next to him. Said jay was in sweats a tshirt and hat in a decent college bar. He said as they were pissing he looked over looked at jay and said hey man I went to vandy and I'm a bears fan I love you man. Apparently cutty was ********* leaned his head back and just yelled dooooonnnnttt caaaarreeee.

    Was listening to Jay Cutler in a 3rd quarter interview in last night preseason game talking about the up coming season, and heard positive comments out of his mouth.

    This is after he was grilled in the post season complaining about it will take two years to learn another system.

    He is the key on the other side of the ball as the defense once again will keep us in games despite losing Urlacher. Bostic will will help ease that loss. Jay just need to lead the offense for an average of 24-27 points which should give us at least a 10-6 or 11-5 record and a playoff berth for a chance.
