Congratulations! One show. One segment. One ridiculous graphic. That’s all it took to accomplish what no one else in sports has been able to…unite the entire NFL fan base behind one unlikable player.
Sports Nation had no idea the favor it was doing for the Chicago Bears quarterback when it aired a graphic asking viewers: “How much do you blame Jay Cutler for RGIII’s injury?”
Fans reacted on Twitter with the hashtag #BlameJayCutler, pinning everything from global warming to bad grades on the notorious sourpuss quarterback.
Here are a few of my favorites:
Let’s #BlameJayCutler for the failed Mayan Apocalypse while we’re at it too.

So, just so there’s no misunderstanding…No. We do not. Blame Jay Cutler. For RGIII’s injury.
P.S. Cutty says, “Thanks!”
