After hearing reports that the Bears have built a “makeshift offensive line” a visibly worried Jay Cutler held a press conference Friday voicing concerns over his own safety.
“I’m not sure what they mean by that, but I’m pretty sure it means that the offensive line is really bad,” said Cutler, who was sacked a whopping 52 times last year. “I can’t imagine it being any worse than last season.”
Just a day before the team’s first preseason game, Cutler expressed great worry at the descriptions he’s been hearing for 2011’s revamped line.
“People have been saying they’re a ragtag bunch, that they’re a motley crew, or that they’re a creatively assembled mix of pieces,” said Cutler. “None of those are positive terms.”
Cutler appeared to be fighting back tears as he ended his press conference.
“Just one of these days, I would love nothing more than to play behind a line that’s described as ‘solid’ or ‘proven’ really, anything positive. I’m really not looking forward to having to deal with another ‘makeshift’ line,” said Cutler, as his lower lip began trembling. “I don’t want to get hurt anymore.”
