Your teammate Kyle Long said the only difference between you and Cutler in the huddle is your Southern accent. Do guys give you a hard time about that?
Sometimes Jay will give me a little crap about it, but not really. I don't think about it. It's just how I talk. Kyle's always with joking with me about it or whatever. As long as they're hearing the play calls and they're able to execute 'em, that's the main thing.
There are several fashion-forward players on the team. Is there anything they wear that makes you think "there's no way I can pull that off"?
Oh yeah, all the time. Guys like Marty [Martellus Bennett] and Earl [Bennett] and Brandon [Marshall]. I dig their looks, I think they're really cool. But I just don't know if it's for me. Whether it's like--some of the shorter, tighter pants with no socks ... and loafers. This younger, hip look that some of the guys are going with. I like it, I think it's cool, it's just not me necessarily.
What's the story behind the tattoo on your arm?
I had my initials up here [points to the top of his right arm], and I thought that was stupid, so I wanted to cover it up. Sorry to anyone who has initials for tattoos. My faith is at the center of my life, it's what's most important to me, so I thought, why not do something that represents that? So it's a cross and a lion is looking through the cross.
Tell us something people don't know about Jay Cutler.
He can really, really cook.
What's his specialty? Italian? American? Mexican?
He's done a little bit of every one of those, and he's really good at it.
Can you cook?
My wife's an awesome cook, so I leave it to her. I'll wash the dishes.
Is Jay better than you?
He can probably outcook me. Maybe.
Do you have a specialty?
Does peanut butter and jelly count?
If you want it to. Maybe you have a gourmet recipe for that.
No, I'm just a grill guy. I like to cook a good steak, hamburgers, stuff like that. When we grill, my wife lets me do the grilling. I pride myself on getting the temperature right and all that stuff.
When your career is over, what will people say about Josh McCown the quarterback?
Hopefully that he gave his team a chance to win. I think that's what any team wants to be said about him, that when he's on the field he put his team in position to win games, and that's all you can ask for.
