When Twitter Attacks, And The Rubble Left Behind..

Twitter is a wonderful place in the cyber world where people from all over can come together sharing similar and different ideas. Twitter can also be a vicious place where lives are destroyed and interrupted through random trending topics, gossip, and fake deaths.

The most recent victim of twitter attacks is about Jay Cutler, quarterback of the Chicago Bears. He got major heat because he left his conference championship game in the 3rd quarter with an apparent injury. He looked fine on the sideline and people really thought that he had given up because the game was out of reach for his team.

Players from all over the league were tweeting about Jay Cutler questioning is “toughness” while the game was in action:

Jacksonville Jaguars star running back Maurice Jones-Drew tweeted: “Hey I think the Urban Meyer rule is in effect right now…when the going gets tough… QUIT” and added “All I’m saying is that he can finish the game on a hurt knee…I played the whole season on one.”

Eagles cornerback Asante Samuel also joined in on the Cutler bashing, tweeting: “If he was on my team I’d be looking at him sideways.”

Cardinals defensive end Darnell Dockett added: “If I’m on Chicago team Jay Cutler has to wait till me and the team shower get dressed and leave before he comes in the locker room!”

Former great Deion Sanders chimed in too, writing, “Folks i never question a players injury but i do question a players heart.”

Redskins wide receiver Anthony Armstrong had the tweet of the day, tweeting: “Knee-Gate in Chicago.”

Turns out Cutler had a very legitimate injury, a sprained MCL. I think the fact that Culter has a legit injury isn’t the question; the question is when you are playing for the chance to go to the SuperBowl, wouldn’t you fight through it? Wouldn’t you do everything you can to help your team win by sacrificing your own pain? Didn’t Kobe play all season with a broken finger and win a championship? I think these questions are why NFL player especially are suspect his efforts. When it all comes down to it, those players were sitting AT HOME watching the game…not actually playing in it.

You cant talk.

What do you guys think? Did he just not have enough heart? How do you feel about players bashing a person’s toughness?

    I think there was very little heart in Jay Cutler that night. I understand his injury, however, I think he looked absolutely defeated on the sideline. I think if he was not going to go back in the game he could at least been helpful on the sidelines. He was sitting on a bench sulking like his cat was stuck in a tree rather than a SuperBowl game being on the line. He should have been like Brett Favre when he was on the sidelines for most of the Vikings season with a headset and constantly revving up the team. Being a leader means stepping up when times are tough and your team needs you most. If you can’t be in the heart of it all on the field, then you need to be doing EVERYTHING in your power to keep that team going and their spirits up – and Cutler wasn’t being the leader his team needed him to be.
