    Jay Cutler on the now-infamous Wildcat play: "Sit there, don't get hit, don't touch anybody, don't move. I feel like I executed that one."

    Great Job Jay!! That was worth 10 mil!

    The rest of the tweets or twits or what ev's the kids call them are LOL too.


    I feel so millenimuminal. :cool2:

    calling this play just showed us the desperation that this creative offense had.

    Do we even need a quarterback in that situation? Couldve brought in a playmaking threat instead of cutler... hes not going to throw the ball that much is obvious

    shows the intelligence of the play call. If Cutler ain't going anywhere, it is a run. I agree, if you use like Landry, who has passed in the past, then maybe you have options, or give the defense options

    I'm pretty neutral on Cutler, but i don't understand what he did wrong here.

    His quote is funny as hell though.

    See http://bleacherreport.com/articles/...-body-language-in-wildcat-formation-vs-saints

    "Miami Dolphins head coach Adam Gase told reporters Wednesday that quarterback Jay Cutler was right not to try to sell a route or attempt to block when the team lined up in a Wildcat formation against the New Orleans Saints.

    "Yes. As soon as he steps forward, they can knock the ... I won't say it, but they can hit him," Gase said, per ESPN.com's James Walker. "If he steps back or doesn't move, now you're looking at different kinds of penalties. Until you go through it, where a quarterback steps off the ball and starts working downfield and you watch one of them get blasted.""

    I love how stupid Gase and a lot of people are pretending to be.

    It's the image of Cutler sitting out there towards the sidelines with his hands on his hips clearly not giving a **** and not even in anything that would remotely be considered a "stance". We saw guys like Pennington and Tannehill in receiver stances when they lined up out there - why should Jay "I don't give a ****ler" be any different?

    He's known for not giving a sh*t, so being seen like that out there while your team is getting their *** kicked again it shows a complete lack of self-awareness on the part of both the team and Cutler.

    I know, right? Nobody cared when Henne or Pennington, or any other QB that's been involved in the wildcat in this manner just stood there, but because it's Jay Cutler, and social media has taken over the world now more than it had then, everyone's up in arms.

    I guess because he puts his hands on his hips and watches, and it's Cutler it's a huge deal. Had he stood there like a WR facing downfield, and not really moving like our other QB's, I guess it's OK though.

    It's a bad playcall now too because the QB just stands there, but when we rolled over NE with a QB just standing there it was sheer brilliance!

    Strange how things have changed.

    Plain and simple, Cutler did what he was told and really sold the heck out of the fact that he wasn't involved with the play. Truthfully, everything about it was hysterical. The fact that people are investing so much time and energy ranting over a single play is what's really funny though.

    What's even funnier is if the Dolphins were 3-0 while averaging 30ppg no one would have said anything about him standing there. Losing magnifies insignificant things.

    Oh look...he was standing that way so he could move backwards and receive the pitch.

    So, your comparison is worthless.

    As I said, it was one play.

    Sure, Cutler could have ran out and tried to block the corner...even though the play was going in the opposite direction...and it would have had zero impact on the play. And you're right, he could have stepped back like he was taking a screen pass, which would have froze that corner for a split second. But that corner wasn't going to tackle Ajayi running to the left anyway so what difference does it make? Cutler could have started break-dancing and it would not have mattered the slightest bit. His job was to be a pre-snap distraction and he did his job.

    Plain and simple, we did not lose the game because Cutler didn't sell a screen or a WR route on a single play in the game. You'd be better off pointing to Tunsil, Fasano, Pouncey or anyone directly involved with blocking for Ajayi there....but even then, we did not lose the game because of their efforts on that single play. If we absolutely, positively have to pass blame though, then the absolute last person to get blamed is Cutler. He did exactly what Gase told him to while a number of others did not.

    The hands on the hips wasn't really causing any defenders concern.

    He wasn't supposed to cause any concern. Did his defender run away from him and deal with someone else? No, he had to stay there with him just in case. Job accomplished.

    No one is saying you should be happy because of the way they've played, but categorically ****ting on everything makes little sense.

    Wow. Tough crowd. I suspect some would have a different attitude if that had been Moore out there...

    Well played, Gunslinger.

    He was out there to draw a defender and did... also, that's a formation that Gase may try some rope-a-dope with later in the season. If it resulted in a 1st down, a long run, or a TD, he'd be praised as a Genius.

    For executing his role in the play as expected - to draw a defender and be a small distraction? Nah, he'd get a pass.

    I'm not sitting here charging that this lone play cost the Dolphins the play. Jet lag, Gase's playcalling, inconistent line play, Cutler's lack of pocket discipline and overall inability to fire up his teammates did. If I'm a coach I never want to see any player out there looking like that - I don't give two sh*ts if he's a decoy. The play was a microcosm of everything wrong with this young start to the season - especially the $10 million we wasted.

    In regards to the play - Ken Crawley saw him standing there like acting like complete deadbeat - he crept in towards the box BEFORE the snap to take a better angle if the run came his way. Had the ball carrier been forced to cut back they're screwing themselves because Cutler refuses to sell the play to buy an extra second or two.



    1:02 - Defender giving cushion but staying in front of Pennington until after the snap.

    [​IMG]

    2:24 - Again defender giving cushion but staying in front of Penning until after the snap. Chad even throws a block as the run comes his way - which allowed Ricky that little bit of extra room to peal off a big run.

    Do you understand that if Cutler steps across the line he could be leveled? He did precisely what he was told.

    No sure why a QB who has the skills to threaten a defense isn't getting play...

    Marqueis gray can execute this..

    The stance Fin D the stance!

    I'm not asking the QB to engage the DB. But it's the stance and threat of running a route which keeps the DB in tighter.

    You really think, that DB thought Cutler would cross the line based on whatever stance he took? Everyone knew Cutler wasn't going to cross the line...including the person covering him...no matter his stance. There was no fooling anyone.

    In fact, acting different, would play more mind games with the defender than pretending to cross the line.

    Look, I'm neutral on Cutler. I'm not impressed with him at all and never have been. But this thing is a nonsensical hill to die on for you.

    Nah - you're just choosing to be as disagreeable with me as you always are. Carry on.

    Fact is Cutler hated the play. His stance matched his attitude not only about the play itself, but his personality in general. The whole thing was completely tone-deaf on his part given his reputation. It's not his job to be out there showing his disdain for it. What's next - receivers stand out there showing disapproval too?

    Body language is about 80% of human communication.

    Cutler did what he was told by the Coach. Good Job.

    But he didn't have to stand there with his hands on his hips looking like a petulant teenager who didn't get his way and obviously just waiting for this stupid play to be over. It was an absolute reflection of his attitude towards this whole game. Maybe that's not accurate, but that's what it looked like to me.

    Started with you calling my opinion nonsensical.

    "But this thing is a nonsensical hill to die on for you."

    Ya, for some guy with a bad attitude who's known for being disinterested - it's "nonsensical" to criticize him standing out there during a live play with his hands on his hips.

    Then the moment I mention you being your typical disagreeable self - you basically called me a douchebag.
