Default Bears OC Aaron Kromer Admits to Being Source for Ian Rapoport's Report Ripping Cutler

Bears OC Aaron Kromer Admits to Being a Source for Ian Rapoport's Report Ripping Jay Cutler
Quote:
Four sources told the Tribune that Kromer adamantly denied he said anything about the franchise having buyer's remorse for Cutler's blockbuster contract and assured players that portion of Sunday's report on NFL Network did not come from him. With Cutler in the room, Kromer did admit however to being frustrated with the quarterback's play management and expressing that to Ian Rapoport as he left Soldier Field on Dec. 4 after the fifth loss in seven games.

Cutler shook his head during Kromer's apology, one source said...
Quote:
Kromer told the players he should not have spoken outside the family circle and did so in the heat of emotion and apologized hoping they all could use it as a learning experience, he told the Tribune.

"I'm still kind of trying to sort my way through this to be honest," one player said. "It's one of the most (messed) up things I have ever seen."

"It's a (messed) up situation," another player said.
Quote:
It was just last week, in the aftermath of the 41-28 loss to the Cowboys, that Cutler gave the coaching staff a vote of confidence despite the continued woes.
"I've been on teams where you went (out) Sunday and you just knew the plan wasn't going to be good enough," he said. "I've never lined up with this crew and felt this plan isn't going to get it done. Or we don't have enough. Or we're outmatched. Or we're out-schemed. That never has been a thought of mine."
Cutler is on the verge of a handful of single-season passing records...
Aaron Kromer must go for anonymous low-blow criticism of Jay Cutler
Quote:
So much scrutiny this week in Chicago surrounded the likely firing of defensive coordinator Mel Tucker. But if the Bears still care about integrity, it will be the offensive coordinator who beats him out the door.

Quote:
Cutler, on his initial reaction when Kromer apologized to the offense: “I think we were all a little bit surprised. I don’t think (we were surprised) so much that it happened but that he stepped in front of us and apologized. And he was owning up to it. Like I said, everyone here has made mistakes and said things in the media and said things to other players in passing that we regret. But not many of us step up in front of everybody and apologize and own it the way he did. I think we left that meeting in a better place than when we started.”
...

Cutler, on how he’ll trust Kromer again going forward: “I think that just goes back to knowing that I’ve said things that I wish I wouldn’t have said. We’re all human. It happens to all of us. And I think Monday, whenever he apologized, we were able to feel that he was sorry, that the situation got the better of him...”
Regardless of what he's been in the past, that is what taking the high road looks like.

Amen. No blaming others, no deflection, just the harsh truth to the folks who needed to hear it the most.

Quote:
"I would have a major problem if somebody said something like that," Rodgers said Tuesday during an interview at Lambeau Field. "I think anybody that plays the position, you can't help but empathize with Jay for that situation. You talk all the time about being connected, being a unit, believing in each other. But if you have unnamed sources, people out there cutting you down, and then you find out it's the person calling the plays -- that would be really hard to deal with, to look at him the same way."

Though Kromer reportedly apologized to Cutler -- and the quarterback later said he "wasn't angry" with his coordinator and that the team was in a "better place" following the meeting in question -- Rodgers was far less forgiving.

"I felt for Jay that he was having to deal with that," Rodgers said. "And I was surprised that the coach came out and admitted that it was him. I think, in general, unnamed sources are pretty gutless. But then he comes out and admits it was him. I don't think he deserves any credit for that, but it was interesting that he did."

Quote:
LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- A pair of accomplished and respected Chicago Bears players told ESPNChicago.com on Wednesday night that a portion of the locker room feels "confused and uncomfortable" over how coach Marc Trestman handled Jay Cutler's benching compared to the minor discipline offensive coordinator Aaron Kromer received last week.

From a pure performance standpoint, neither of the players, who requested to remain anonymous, objected to Cutler losing his starting job to Jimmy Clausen for Sunday's game versus the Detroit Lions.

But while noting that a faction of Cutler detractors exists inside Halas Hall, the general belief is that the respective punishments for Cutler and Kromer are gravely inconsistent, after the Bears offensive coordinator received "basically a slap on the wrist" for his public indiscretions when he tearfully revealed in a team meeting Dec. 8 that he was the anonymous source cited in a published NFL Media report that was highly critical of the quarterback.

Kromer coached the Bears from the sideline during Monday night's 31-15 loss to the New Orleans Saints and is expected to finish out the season.

This further magnifies the distrust between Trestman and the locker room, an ongoing issue during much of the Bears' disappointing 5-9 season, according to the players...

Good for Jay Cutler. There is a lot you can do in retirement with that kind of guaranteed money. Looks like he is half way to being out the league at the moment.

I just don't see him as the kind of guy who can string together a ton of performances. Flashes of brilliance won't get you a ring without consistent play to back it up.

I don’t know what Jay Cutler is supposed to say. But this is as professional as anyone can handle this. No body language analysis necessary

#Bears QB Jay Cutler just called Marc Trestman a “heck of a quarterback coach.” This is the theatre of the surreal.

Jay Cutler actually seems to be handling this in a pretty mature manner.

Cutler said this isn't as bad as it was in Denver in '09: "It wasn't an open dialogue in that situation. ... Night and Day."

Bears QB Jay Cutler on his reaction: "Shocked. Disappointed. I didn't see it coming."

Cutler: "A lot of money involved in my contract... that comes with a lot of expectations." ...says he he can still work with Trestman in 15.

You know you have a bad reputation when people react to your lack of a reaction...

It's like the media wants Cutler to start creating problems.

Really interesting press conference. Talked about McDaniel, heaped pretty big praise on Trestman:
Mark's a heck of a football coach, a heck of a offensive coach, a heck of a QBs coach... I still believe that.
I think Cutler's battles with OCs have always been about his preference for moving off the spot and their resistance to it.
