Tim Brown:

Cutler is sorry about bump but not yelling at teammate

The SportsXchange

Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler admits that he made a mistake in bumping left tackle J'Marcus Webb on the sideline during last Thursday's loss to Green Bay, but he doesn't play to stop yelling at teammates anytime soon.

"I probably shouldn't have bumped him, I'll go with that," Cutler told ESPN 1000 in Chicago during a weekly appearance. "As far as me yelling at him and trying to get him going in the game, I don't regret that.

"I've talked about it with the offensive line, each of them individually, and it is what it is. I think it's been blown up probably a bit bigger than all of us expected. At the same time, that's what you have to expect out of the media."

Cutler has received criticism from opponents and teammates, including Chicago cornerback D.J. Moore, since the incident. Moore said he doesn't believe a quarterback can act the way Cutler acted.

"He's entitled to his opinion and whatever he wants to say is up to him," Cutler said on the air Tuesday.

Cutler also took issue with media analysis of his four-interception performance in the loss to Green Bay.

""I think I had my composure all game," Cutler said. "Under the circumstances, we moved the ball well all game. Every game, a win or a loss, you can go back and say, 'We should have done this, we should have done that.'"
