Fox's Terry Bradshaw to Jay Cutler: 'Grow up young man'

Terry Bradshaw.jpgFox-TV pre-game co-host and Hall of Fame quarterback Terry Bradshow offered his take Sunday on Bears quarterback Jay Cutler's sideline snub of
offensive coordinator Mike Tice in Dallas on Monday. And, like before, it wasn't positive.

"I know I would never act like that," Bradshaw said on ''NFL Sunday'', hours
before the Bears played the Jaguars in Jacksonville. "I would show
respect to the head coach and offensive coordinator. I would never do,
Jay, what you did to Mike Tice. No matter if he was in your ear the
whole time screaming and hollering.

"You know you've got millions of people watching. If I were you, I
would learn how to be a little bit nicer. I know you don't care and
nor do I care if I ever sit down and do an interview with you - which
I have yet to do - maybe there's a reason for that. I like everybody.
I'd like to like you but right now I don't like you. Grow up young
man."

Tice said Wedneday that "Jay and I are good." Cutler also played
extremely well in the 34-18 rout of the Cowboys during "Monday Night
Football."

"He probably had enough of me telling him why the play didn't work," a
laughing Tice said. "I get enough of me sometimes, too. I can talk a
little bit as you guys know.

"The heat of the battle, it's tough. A lot of things happen on the
sidelines. A lot of things happen over the course of a game. I was
really angry about the fact that we didn't make that third-and-one. I
was in his ear from the time he came off the field to the time he went
over and put his helmet down. At a certain point probably enough's
enough."

Cutler also said multiple times that it wasn't an issue.

"We talk about it just because it's so prevalent in the media for
whatever reason, but it wasn't an issue then and it's not an issue
now," Cutler said. "We're happy with the win. We're looking forward to
Jacksonville. We've just got to keep working hard and offensively take
another step forward."

Terry how about shutting up your big fat mouth and grow up yourself. Your 30 yrs older then Cutler telling him to grow up???? If you dont have anything positive to say about Jay talk about something else. Jay doesnt care if you dont wanna interview him your a punk arse bic anyways.

I wish Terry B would stfu and go away. His 'geez, I'm a dumb and opinionated hick act' are both true and tiresome now. Terry B will doing anything to get a headline and is irrevelant now. BTW, he is also the biggest flip-flopper 'loving you this week/hating you the next' hack in the football business.

Interesting comments from Terry.

I wonder what he thinks of Pittsburgh's quarterback?

Let's have a look at both guys:

Jay Cutler:

1. Demanded a trade after his coach lied to him about trying to trade him behind his back.

2. Bumped his offensive tackle and told him to "get your head in the &^$% game!"

3. Walked away from Mike Tice when frustrated about a missed third and one.

Ben Rothlisberger:

1. Violated his rookie contract and missed an entire season with a broken leg after crashing his bullet bike.

2. LOST his locker room in 2010. Forcing Joey Porter to call him out in a team meeting and the media. http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/otl/news/story?id=5132299

3. Served a 6-game suspension after being investigated on two separate instances of forcible rape.

Interesting.

Didn't Terry Bradshaw have a nearly 30 year feud with Chuck Knox because of his own immaturity? It was either Knox or one of the Rooneys. I am pretty sure it was Knox. This is one of the most immature personalities of the last 40 years in sports, who only recently has grown up himself (at 60 years old), so I find it very hollow that he is critical of any person who is displaying signs of immaturity.

I love how these media guys are all over a guy who is competitive, and while he displays some immature behaviors, what QB doesn't? Tom Brady berates his teammates on the sideline every time he takes a hit, and he's fiery and competitive. Aaron Rodgers gets all over James Jones after he ran the wrong route in the Bears game, completely showing him up ON THE FIELD, but he's a great leader. Every QB, every week, if they are a leader, will have a moment or two where they and either one of their teammates or coaches don't see eye to eye. They just seem to want to harp on Cutler when he does it.

I am tired of the TMZ style stalking of Cutler every time he walks off the field. Let's get upset over the INT early in the game, and how poor the Bears have started every game for the last 5 years. What's going on there? We seem to do well once the game is moving, but it seems like we can't script our first 15 plays to be successful to save our lives. I am a lot more worried about that than I am what Cutler does on the sideline.
