Jay Cutler #6 of the Chicago Bears works out during a summer training camp practice at Olivet Nazarene University on July 30.
Maurice Jones-Drew still isn't going to apologize.
If you don't remember, or in case you wisely put it out of your mind, Jones-Drew was one of the players who led the charge against Cutler when the QB was pulled from the NFC Championship game.
In an interview with the NFL Network, MJD said that he has no plans to apologize to Cutler.
"I haven’t gotten a chance to, but I wouldn’t apologize because I didn’t do anything wrong, I don’t think,” Jones-Drew said. “I didn’t commit a crime. I didn’t kill anyone or rape anyone or anything like that. I mean, I stated my opinion, and it seems like you get more backlash for that than committing a real crime in some sense. I feel like I didn’t do anything wrong, I just said what everybody else was thinking.”
Funny, after watching Cutler get sacked more than 50 times, and then get up every time, the last thing that occurred to me was to question his toughness.
I'm not sure who gave MJD the idea that he was the spokesman for the football-watching nation.
At the same time, his stance of non-apology is not a shock, considering that he's had months to say sorry and he hasn't.
At this point, who cares?
If Cutler wants to shut up critics like Jones-Drew, he has 16 opportunities over the next few months.
He's a grown man who has been through plenty of criticism. He doesn't need an apology.
