I Would've Gone Out There With TWO Torn MCLs!

The idiotic "code" culture of ex-NFL players reared its ugly head again yesterday and today when several current and former NFL players decided to rip Jay Cutler of the Bears for leaving Sunday's game with an injury- which later turned out to be either a torn or sprained MCL.

Anyone complaining that he should've rubbed some dirt on it, I volunteer to tear their ACL, and see how it affects their work performance for the rest of the day. And being an announcer or fan doesn't require people trying to hit you. Business Insider had the best take:

The reason those injuries happen is because players who play hurt are lionized and those who don't are humiliated. Because Jay Cutler didn't push himself to the absolute limit and stretch his body beyond what any doctor would consider acceptable, he's a punk who doesn't deserve to be a starting quarterback in the NFL. And guys like Mark Schlereth and Mike Golic are the reason why.
The ex-players say, "That may not be fair, but that's the mentality of football." Well, the mentality of football ruins lives. The mentality of football shatter bodies. The mentality of football left Schlerth with a leg that doesn't bend right and it left Andre Waters with the brain of a 85-year-old Alzheimer's patient.
I don't care if he's got a concussion and eight different torn tendons throughout his body- get back out there! They should put 'em in skirts!
