Quarterback Jay Cutler called Soldier Field's sod the worst in the league earlier this week, prompting the Chicago Park District, which maintains the field, to call a press conference during which stadium officials proclaimed it to be the best.
Worst, best or somewhere in between, Cutler said the field was no issue Sunday.
"They didn't call me," Cutler said when asked if he had been contacted by the park district. [Julius Peppers] said something about it, too. It is what it is. They can say that the field is good.
"The field had no effect on the outcome today. We got beat by a very, very good team. Whether we were on turf or not it wouldn't have mattered."
