Following the team’s blowout 55-14 loss to the Green Bay Packers Sunday night, Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler told reporters Tuesday that he would be the first person to admit the team is in dire need of a new punter. “It’s certainly not an easy thing to say, but at the end of the day, someone has to step up and accept that mistakes were made by our punter, Pat O’Donnell,” said Cutler, who pointed to O’Donnell’s blocked punt in the third quarter as playing a major role in the team’s unraveling and conceded that blame for the team’s loss rested squarely on the rookie punter. “Going forward, there will have to be some serious adjustments made to our punt unit—when individual players aren’t doing their part out there, we’re going to fall short as a team. Pat didn’t play well, and he needs to accept responsibility for that.”Some people were disturbed by Cutler's assessment, which is pretty funny considering the article was a creation from The Onion.
From The Huffington Post:
[A]fter Chicago was humiliated at Green Bay, 55-14, on Sunday, abysmal and anger won out over logic and reason, because some people took The Onion’s story, “Jay Cutler: ‘I’ll Be The First Person To Admit We Need A New Punter,” literally.A series of tweets from people ripping Cutler follows.
I mean it's humiliating to believe that a story from The Onion is true and respond as if Cutler actually blamed O'Donnell.
And also, it's humiliating to be a Bears fan.
