Aaron Rodgers feels for Bears’ Jay Cutler after in house criticism

Aaron Rodgers is one of the most successful quarterbacks in the history of the NFL, and when all is said and done, Rodgers may go down as the best of all-time.

Rodgers is a great signal caller but he has benefited from having an excellent coaching staff that has believed in him over the years.

Jay Cutler on the other hand, a good friend of Rodgers', has not benefited from that during his career so far with the Chicago Bears. In fact, things have become so bad for Cutler last week that his offensive coordinator Aaron Kromer told NFL insider Ian Rapoport that people within the Bears' organisation think Cutler is not up to scratch.

Rodgers speaks out

Even if that fact is true, the offensive coach's actions were despicable, and Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers admitted on Wednesday that he would be furious if one of the Packers coaches said something like that about him.

"I would have a major problem if somebody said something like that," Rodgers said Tuesday, reported. "I think anybody that plays the position, you can't help but empathize with Jay for that situation. You talk all the time about being connected, being a unit, believing in each other. But if you have unnamed sources, people out there cutting you down, and then you find out it's the person calling the plays -- that would be really hard to deal with, to look at him the same way."

Bears’ coach is ‘gutless’

Cutler is one of the most incredibly frustrating quarterbacks. He's a player that can make every single throw in the book. In terms of talent, he's the most talented QB in the NFL.
But in terms of knowledge and aptitude, he's one of the worst. Cutler was previously seen as the man to lead the Bears to the Super Bowl in the coming years, but his poor play this year just shows his time is running out in Chicago.

But regardless of how bad Cutler is, what Rodgers says about loyalty to your players is true, and what Cutler's offensive coach did to him is unforgivable.

"I felt for Jay that he had to deal with that," Rodgers added. "And I was surprised that the coach came out and admitted that it was him. I think unnamed sources are pretty gutless. He came out and admitted it was him, and although I don't think he deserves any credit for that, it was interesting that he did."
