Man, did you read the sports yesterday?
First I read Haugh on the Trib.
He is really really mad at Jay because Jay didn't answer any of his questions appropriately at a Halas Hall press conference.
The whole story is pretty silly.
Then, I went and read some stuff from some guy in Seattle.
Turns out he's pretty mad at Jay too, and the slant of his story is the Bears are boring.
The "snooze button" of the NFL.
I guess Jay wasn't in the mood to talk at this thing - I'm assuming all these writers were at the same, non-talking Jay press conference, and it is weird I guess because probably if it's a press conference you're supposed to talk.
But then I read Rick Reilly, who must be SUPER MAD at Jay for not answering any of his questions in a manner Rick deems appropriate because Rick says, "If he's not The Most Hated Man in the NFL, he's in the running."
Because of a press conference.
So Rick dug around and has a bunch of nasty stories about Jay the non-talker, dissing the likes of John Lynch, John Elway, and some reporter who asked what QB he looked up to as a kid ("Nobody," said Jay).
So, it's weird but I guess I don't really care about Jay not answering questions, and I don't think anybody really thinks that means he's any less prepared for a big playoff game.
I mean... do you?
Are you mad at Jay because he could own this town if only he'd give an answer to questions like who his favorite quarterback was when he was growing up?
I really really doubt that the players care if he answers any questions.
They probably just want to knock his teeth out anyway, right?
Anyway, it's playoff time in Chicago.
Glad Jay's not mooning any helicopters.
