Jay Cutler knows all too well about this topic.
Earlier in the week Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, speaking on his weekly radio show, said he'd tell fans to R-E-L-A-X about the team's slow 1-2 start.
Cutler, who has oft been criticized for lashing out in defense of himself and the Bears to the media, laughed when asked if he can relate to Rodgers' comments, adding:
"I don't know if I'd advise him to do that, though" he said, with a laugh. "Sometimes that can backfire on you."
In three games Rodgers is 64-for-102 with five touchdowns and one interception. His 95.1 passer rating is just 13th among quarterbacks and the Packers are looking to avoid beginning the season 1-3.
Still, Cutler, a good friend of Rodgers', knows the former MVP and Super Bowl champ is still one of the best in the game.
He's a heck of a player," Cutler said. "You watch the games and he's taking care of the ball. Protection-wise they're having a few issues, I think. But his win against the Jets, we won against the Jets just like he did. Youw atch the film and they're asking a lot of him to make plays outside the pocket and outside the structure of the play, which gets difficult at times."
