Doesn’t sound like Jay Cutler believes Brandon Marshall’s McDonalds story either


Jay Cutler is not very happy with Brandon Marshall right now. The young gun starting quarterback in Denver conducted his first interview since the season ended and most of his comments dealt with wide receiver Marshall and all of his off-the-field shenanigans; the latest being an injured arm that supposedly occurred when Marshall slipped on a McDonald’s bag and went crashing through his television while roughhousing. While Cutler isn’t up to Phillip Rivers’ level when it comes to talking trash, the John Elway wannabe certainly got his point across and slipped in a few shots to boot.

Yeah, he’s not my favorite person right now,” Cutler said. “I mean, I support him, but it’s always something with him right now.” …

I’ve talked to him many times. I think a lot of people have. … He knows he’s running out of chances,” Cutler said. “This wasn’t like his DUI and other stuff he’s had. It was an accident, but still, things like that can’t happen. He knows it.

“But like I told him, I said, ‘Brandon, they’re going to quit giving you chances and you’re going to have to go somewhere else. And that’s going to be a shame.”‘

Marshall said last week that he realizes he has to grow up and that his freak injury was a wakeup call.

“His DUI was a wakeup call,” Cutler retorted. “He’s had many wakeup calls. I mean, he’s been in (coach Mike) Shanahan’s office many times. I’ve been up there with him. He said the same thing: ‘This is a wakeup call. This is the last thing that’s going to happen. Blah blah blah.’ I mean, until he goes out and proves it, we’ll see what happens. …

I love Brandon to death and he’s a great kid at heart. I don’t think he goes out there looking for trouble. He’s not at bars late. He’s not doing those things that other people do. It’s just something about him. He’s always into something,” Cutler said. “Like I told him, ‘I haven’t lost faith in you. I’ll still support you. But … you’re going to have to prove yourself this time.’

We certainly can’t blame Cutler for being a little lot peeved with Marshall, but dissing him in public probably isn’t going to go over too well with the “kid.” We wouldn’t be surprised one bit if Marshall’s fist goes right into Cutler’s face at some point this season; of course, his severed artery, vein, nerve, two tendons and three muscles have to heal first.
