Why is Jay Cutler on the list?

Putting him with Vick, TO, Pacman etc is a bit extreme IMHO...

How could you leave off "Jack Tatum"?
After he he left Daryl Stingley a paraplegic he wrote a book called "They Call Me Assassin".

Tatum was more than 25 years ago (wasn't that in 1978?). i should have put Charles Haley on the list though. Cutler is there because i'm a Broncos fan. what he did may not amount to very much for fans of other teams, but i have to consider him a jerk for breaking up what could have been a superb offense under McD. as i was thinking of possible jerks, i realized that there have been many, many to choose from in the past 25 years. that says something sad about modern day athletes i suppose.

i suppose Romanowski belongs on the list of also-rans. he was OK when he was "our" jerk, but he was a real jerk when he played for other teams. he punched some teammate in the jaw in Oakland and ended his career.

My bad, didn't see the 25 yrs. I guess if I wasn't a Bronco fan I would put Romo on the list. Spitin in a guy face will get you on someones jerk list.

Biggest jerks in the NFL: the two Patriots players that came into Pagliucci's last night...

Nah, just kidding, they were pretty cool. I wish I would've gotten their names.... two black dudes. One had corn rows and was around 6'0" and had to weigh 320. The other looked to be around 6'5" 280...

The jury's still out on Cutler, but the groundwork has been laid for him to be another Jeff George.

Josh McDummy is an instant nominee.

He passes the arrogance smell test right thru the TV.

Enjoy the Cheater's pupil.

Borrowing phrases from Parcells or Billicheat isn't proving much other than being a cheap imitation..

Yeah really, there's no way no way Ocho Droppo doesn't make that list AND not land in the top 5.

No, punched him square in the front of the face, and fractured the orbital bones around the guy's eye.

Romo was the most obvious omission from the list, IMO.

Yeah. It shows you how ridiculous the timbre of the Cutler conversation has gotten around here.

Now that many of you have seen the light that Cutler is a whining baby, how could you put Rivers on that list?

Why would Rice be on there at all? He seemed like a quiet hard working good guy.

He also broke his former Bronco teammate's arm in an extremely dirty, intentional way.

...not to mention his penchant for cheap shots and dirty plays.

Romo may have been helpful for the Broncos, but he is certainly one of the NFL's all time slimeballs.

calling jerry rice a jerk is like calling michael jordan a jerk....all the dude did was win and did it with a smile on his face. I would put michael irvin on there before i would put rice on.
