Cutler: a bad news Bear

The starting Bears’ quarterback, Jay Cutler, has a wide array of faces, both on and off the field, that often sparks backlash from critics and fans alike.
Cutler has only been with the Bears for five seasons, yet has already made a huge mark, which is shown through his less than appealing expressions loss after loss.
Cutler is known for his “Jay face,” which can be considered a type of unique communication that fans have grown accustomed to throughout this 2-3 season and past seasons, as well. However, this “Jay face” is one that doesn’t deserve any praise.
This particular face is one that Steve Rosenbloom of The Chicago Tribune describes as “pouty” and subsequently flashes when everything goes downhill during a game.
The question remains, why can’t he pull it together and project a more uplifting attitude on the field for his teammates and fans to trust?  Or, in reality, does Cutler need to be replaced?
Cutler is playing for one of the most historically respected teams in the NFL, which should be considered a great honor to be taken with pride, but it doesn’t look like he cares. Chicago fans are looking for a leader that takes playing for their beloved team seriously, not someone who appears scared to lose.
Fans hate seeing the “Jay face” appear on their TV screens because their sense of hope for a win diminishes. They are able to read his face like a book, almost like a signal to start panicking whenever he flashes it.
Indeed, fans are very important to the Bears’ organization and their concerns should be taken into consideration; although, the effects on the current players are just as significant.
Playing the game of volleyball my whole life has taught me the ins and outs of a heavily dominated “team” sport.
I feel football shares many of the same characteristics. One comes to learn that there really is no “I” in team.
For both sports, it can be hard for the team not to be effected by one player’s poor attitude. The sense of insecurity spreads like a disease and could even result in an unexpected loss.
Cutler is one of the captains, which means he should be the leader his teammates can look to during at any time and be able to sense authentic positivity. Nevertheless, all they receive is the “Jay face,” thus making me question Cutler’s ability to motivate and be a team player.
It’s clear that he has shown his true colors on the field and during his “could care less” press conferences; so, evidently, it would be best to see Cutler cut. But, it’s widely known that he has signed a seven year deal with the first three years averaging around $18 million.  Sadly, Cutler is here to stay.
Due to the Bears’ organization’s unfortunate choice to keep Cutler, the fans will have to put up with the “Jay face” for the next seven years, unless a change is made.
Fans and Cutler’s teammates need to take a stand to stop the regular appearance of the “Jay Face” by making it known we shouldn’t be paying our quarterback millions to stand and pout.
