Jay Cutler and Philip Rivers aren’t the best of friends. The two AFC West quarterbacks exchanged heated words on the football field in December 2007, with Rivers jawing at Cutler on national TV. Since then, the Broncos-Chargers rivalry reached another level.
Visiting on Fox’s The Best Damn Sports Show, Period, Cutler was put on the spot about his rivalry with Rivers. Not surprisingly, Cutler responded candidly. Asked if he thought Rivers was “kind of an ass,” (Ed. Note: Yes), Cutler laughed before stating the obvious: he and Rivers don’t exactly get along.
“We don’t really have a lot of contact with each other. It’s become a nice rivalry. We’re both younger guys and both on pretty good teams in the same division and get to see each other twice. I’m just not that big of a fan of the guy.”
Cutler continued, “I don’t like how he carries himself. I don’t like some of the stuff he does on the field.”
No doubt Cutler has plenty more he’d love to say on the matter. You can already tell this is going to be a big deal, but what is Cutler supposed to say? “I love the guy”? There’s no love lost between Cutler and Rivers, and that doesn’t appear to be changing any time soon.
