Image is everything

Andre Agassi said it years ago, and it’s still true today.

Image is everything.

Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler stood brooding on the sidelines for much of the Bears’ 21-14 loss to Green Bay in the NFC Championship Game, leading some to question his heart.

Turns out, he has a MCL tear.

I think he’s guilty.

Not of begging out of a playoff game – one in which he was stinking up the joint.

But of not looking hurt enough.

Grab some crutches, throw a tantrum, something.

He was disappointed, and pouted very much like my eight-year-old son does when things don’t go his way.

Cutler could have been a better teammate, encouraging Caleb Hanie and acting like he cared about the outcome of the game.

But he wasn’t.

So, if you want to ride him this morning, do it for the right reasons.

You can’t rip a guy for not playing with a torn knee ligament.
