Jay Cutler Torn Apart On Twitter After Botched Tackle, Injury (Video)

The world was reminded Sunday why Jay Cutler is such an easy target.

Cutler exited the Chicago Bears’ game against the Arizona Cardinals in the second quarter after trying (and failing miserably) to make a tackle on an interception returned for a touchdown by Tony Jefferson.

The oft-criticized quarterback suffered a hamstring injury on the play, which provided a perfect snapshot of Cutler’s tenure with the Bears. Jimmy Clausen took over at QB for Chicago in Cutler’s absence.

It’s really not funny when someone gets hurt. But given Cutler’s track record, which includes fracturing his thumb while trying to make a tackle in 2011, and the fluky nature of Sunday’s injury, it’s hard not to roll your eyes.

As you’d imagine, Twitter had a field day with Cutler after he left Sunday’s game.
