Former NFL quarterback and former NFL analyst Sean Salisbury dumped on one NFC North quarterback and gushed about another.
During an interview on 411mania.com, Salisbury called Jay Cutler "overrated," although he expected him to improve under Mike Martz.
"Mike Martz is demanding of his quarterbacks and Jay Cutler should get better. I think he gets a little lazy with his mechanics. I think he's overrated now," Salisbury said. "I'm a little bothered by the mental part of it. I think there's always an excuse."
Asked about the Bears' Super Bowl chances, Salisbury said, "Just being honest from a quarterback position and what I see, that's not a Super Bowl team and he's not a Super Bowl quarterback.
"Super Bowl talent, yes, but the demeanor and the excuses, he has a lot to prove this year. He has to prove that he can go four, five, or six games in a row without throwing interceptions and without forcing it."
Meanwhile, Salisbury is the latest to jump on the sizeable bandwagon of Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers. Salisbury said Rodgers is a top-five quarterback.
"I think he's got the demeanor of a superstar and the poise of a superstar," Salisbury said.
In fact, Salisbury said he would "not be shocked if he's the MVP."
It's been a while since I've heard from Salisbury, after his ouster from ESPN. But, Salisbury never was one to mince his words.
