ESPN had a roundtable discussion where the question that was posed was "how much do you blame Jay Cutler for RGIII's injury?" Not "do you blame Jay", but HOW MUCH. P.S. This is not from the Onion.

The discussion, I believe, started because of the Dan Wetzel Yahoo article about how RG3 may have been worried about getting the Cutler-like backlash if he came out of the game, which is fair even if the basis for the Cutler backlash was completely and utterly unfounded. The RT discussion took on a different tone though and served basically as a forum for the baffoons at ESPN to take shots at Cutler while continuing their 3 year trend of ignoring the facts on the issue, like that Jay asked back into the game after being injured and struggled before he was taken out by Lovie for the same reasons RG3 should have been taken out by Shanahan on Sunday (he was too hurt to be effective).

Basically, ESPN decided to take shots at Jay to create a justification for RG3 to have continued playing to the extent of hurting the team in both the present and future with no present benefit (a dumb move) for a reason that seems to be solely that RG3 is more likable than Jay is. They chose instead of reporting on the real story (RG3/Shanahan) making an awful decision that hurt the team Sunday and going into next season) and decided to push their agenda that Cutler should be blindly disliked based upon nothing tangible other than that he doesn't kiss their back side instead. Basically, he's their anti-Tebow.

So much for objective journalism...

Where did this "take himself out of the game" start? From people watching at sports bars without the sound on? It has to be one of the most unsubstatiated claims in the history of pro sports. I've never heard one shred of evidence that even remotely supports it.

Its b/c he was seen walking around and riding the stationary bike, therefore he must have been healthy enough to play. Ridiculous. Somebody in the general forum even made a comment that he "went out on the town that night". I didn't realize the guy wasn't allowed to get dinner in the city he lives in. Wtf is he supposed to do, sit at home in the dark and cry himself to sleep?

Even if that's true, then the idiots who created the backlash by inventing stories are to blame and not Jay. In the end, it shouldn't matter, because it shouldn't be RGIII's decision to begin with.

Somebody was complaining about that after a loss in 2011 as well, when he was seen eating at a steakhouse after the game. Apparently you can't enjoy a steak after your offensive line gets you killed for 60 minutes.
