Jay Cutler, who was the subject of heated criticism for ‘tapping out’ against the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship game, has decided to return the favor to Eagles wide receiver Desean Jackson.
“Grade two sprain? Weak,” Cutler privately tweeted to OTR.
Cutler’s tweet was in response to the news that Jackson will not be playing in the Pro Bowl this coming Sunday at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii. The Eagles receiver/punt returner re-injured his left knee that caused him to miss time against the Green Bay Packers during Wild Card weekend.
Cutler also suffered a grade II sprain to his MCL, but feels the Pro Bowl is more important than a playoff game.
“If I was there, I’d play. Grade two ain’t nothing,” Cutler effectively provided OTR with a double-negative tweet. “Players wait their whole lives to perform in the Pro Bowl. To decline the opportunity is like a slap in the face to the rest of the league who aren’t there.”
These tweets that only OTR has, come at a surprise. Cutler was ripped by NFL players Maurice Jones Drew and Asante Samuel, and also by former Pro Bowler Deon Sanders. They questioned his heart and desire to win, despite the Bears quarterback noticeably limping as he sat on the bench.
OTR is anxious to hear if Jackson has any response to Cutler.
