RedEye: What would you have given to play with a quarterback like a Jay Cutler? Terrell: (Laughs, for a long time) I would have cut off both my balls. I’d give those up, no problem. You could have neutered me. I woulda been neutered with a smile. Shit, man, for real.http://www.redeyechicago.com/sports/redeye-redeye-gets-call-from-david-t...
David Terrell doesn't like being considered a bust and would give up his...umm....just click.
Would have starred in Billy Crystal's lesser known sequel Balless in Chicago
Why would anyone cut their balls off to play with Jay Cutler? Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Drew Brees...I would understand that.
Keep your balls, David.
But...but...he's got all the physical tools, man. He can make all the throws! Arm talent!
Stay thirsty my friends!
Exactly. Cutler is very overrated. I've disliked him from his first days in Denver. It always "He can make every throw in the book, he has great arm strength, he has potential to be great.......". But he has more than enough time to prove himself and it hasn't happened.
EDIT: QVIST beat me to it.
Who the hell would you rather have played with!?!?!?!

Comment makes sense to me.
Terrell's comment is a bit silly (as Cutler is not THAT good; he's no Brady, Rodgers, etc) but it's based in the truth of your list: the Bears have been non-existent for decades as a passing team. Even with the explosion of passing that has occurred since 1994, the Bears have seemingly belonged to another era. It is truly, amazingly, bad.
Consider: their leader in passing yards in a season is Erik Kramer! (YTLEK*); they've never had ANYONE throw for 4000 yards (a number not exactly hard to reach lately) and beyond Kramer and Cutler, Rex Grossman has the next highest total: 3193 yards.
Their TDs in a season reads: Erik Kramer (29, 1995); Sid Luckman (28, 1943); Jay Cutler (27, 2009); Sid Luckman (24, 1947); Jay Cutler (23, 2010). When two of your top 4 passing TD seasons are from over 60 years ago, when people literally could clothesline a receiver, you've had some bad QBs.
* Yes, the Lions' Erik Kramer.
Most teams at least have someeone from way back who was good. The Lions had Bobby Layne. The best the Bears have had between Sid and Cutler is who? One of the Jims, McMahon or Harbaugh? I mean, most of their QBs make Gary Danielson look good.
- Of course most teams have had some one who was "good", but not still stastically leading, seventy years later. Passing has exploded in terms of importance, and thus production, since the mid-80s, and in particular in the past twenty years. Go team by team -- the passing records (and even the top 5 statistical seasons) are not held by old-time legends like Otto Graham, Bart Starr or Norm Van Brocklin but by Brian Sipe, Aaron Rodgers and Jim Everett.
- Even the Lions, the worst team in pro sports in the last sixty years, have had more recent success passing. From Scott Mitchell, to Matt Stafford, to the immortal Jon Kitna -- they've all had better passing years in terms of yards than anyone in the history of the Bears (and thus, in theory, Terrell would have cut off a body part to play for the Lions, but I don't know if he's insane).
He would have given up his balls to play with Cutler? What would he have given up to play with Brady?
His bomb ass dick.
Came here to make sure someone made a reference to his BAD.
Was not disappointed.
I was confused by the post at first, thinking it was about his time at Michigan, but this is talking about his time with the Bears. Gotta love that passion!
"Jay, I cut off my balls to play with you!"
But would he sacrifice his bomb-ass dick?
Crap. I didn't see this before I posted above.
Someone did manage to neg me, so that joke might be past its expiration date.
You get free usage for life. I was chuckling to myself as I scrolled down the page waiting for it. "Who's got the bomb? Terrell's got the bomb!"
Why would anyone in their right mind want to play with that whiny d bag?
In fairness to David, Cutler is like Johnny Unitas compared to the QBs he played with on the Bears.
Much as I think Cutler is way, way overrated, you have to look back at the long sewer drain of QBs the Bears have put on the field. A good QB in Chicago is like a Lions team winning a playoff game -- once in a lifetime.
We know he's not the best but we appreciate as Bears fans that he isn't Jim Miller.
Didn't like Cutler before he came to the Bears. But was excited to have him just because he was the only really good quarterback they've had in his lifetime.
How bad did his QBs have to be for him to believe that Rex Grossman was some kind of wonderful? Yikes. That's like a Michigan player saying, "Man, Scott Shafer was such a good defensive coordinator, but when Greg Robinson came in, it got really bad."
David Terrell has to hold his testicles to a higher standard
Very odd...it's like saying you'd do that to play with Jeff George. Does not compute.
I don't know why Chicago drafted him... They had a few good receivers on board then took D.T and he rarely saw the field...He could have been better used on another team
Um.......my guess is that after last Saturday David Terrell's testicles are about the LAST thing on Jay Cutler's mind right about now.
he did have QBs like Jim Miller, Craig Krenzel, Rex Grossman, Shane Matthews, Chris Chandler, Kordell Stewart and Chad Hutchinson.
Cutler is not all that great, but these guys are total cat pukes.
Exactly. Like I said above, the Bears have been famous for having horrible QBs.
Pain , right there.
Kernel is a decent fill-in sports talk guy.
Cutler is a winey little d-bag. You just get the impression no one likes him. The way he pouts. The bears can have him. He's like a modern day Jeff George.
Drew Hanson to Terrell was great.
Terrell himself actually bumbles Henson's name.
I usually don't bother with the links. I just read everyone's reaction to the stories.
Male genitals you say?
I stopped reading after his second response. But, I thought for sure he would be a very good NFL reciever. I always thought he was one of the best recievers we ever had. He was so big and was basically un-coverable (word?) in college. He was very similar to Braylon. I still think fondly of his dominance over Bama in the 2000 Orange Bowl. So, I guess form that perspective he was a bust, but to be honest I didn't really follow his NFL career, which probably means it wasn't that good.
For whatever reason Michigan receivers have not fared all that well when selected high in the draft. Howard, Terrell & Edwards all went high and none came close to living up to their performance in college.
Obvious answer is obvious. They no longer have Michigan quarterbacks throwing to them.
Demond was never a big time player as a receiver in the NFL, but he had a pretty good career as a special teams player. Dude was the MVP of Super Bowl XXXI. Not a Hall of Fame career, but a pretty good one.
You'll get no argument out of me over Terrell and Braylon though.
Braylon was good until his 2nd major injury. I'd say he proved he was as good as his hype, just unlucky the way his career went with 2 knee injuries, staff infection, and never even had a good QB throwing him the ball and still managed to make plays.
wouldn't bust if his balls were cut off.
What does spat mean?
I couldn’t sign a Nike deal ‘cuz I had to spat my shoes up. Nike was like we ain’t giving you no money if you spat up.
It covers the logo's......
