Jay Cutler’s sorry.
And he’s not sorry.
On his 1000-AM radio show Tuesday, The Bears quarterback said he shouldn’t have bumped left tackle J’Marcus Webb during Thursday’s loss to the Packers. But Cutler said he wasn’t sorry about dressing down Webb on the sidelines.
Nor would Cutler say whether he apologized to anyone.
Athletes are well-known for their non-apology apologies. Here are some of the best:
“I didn’t mean it that way.”
Ozzie Guillen, after calling a former Sun-Times columnist a gay slur
“I didn’t mean to offend nobody but Kellen Winslow.”
Joey Porter, former Steelers linebacker after he called Winslow . . . a gay slur.
“And to be quite honest, I don’t know what substance I was guilty of using.”
Alex Rodriguez, on using performance enhancing drugs during an interview with ESPN’s Peter Gammons
“When you’re rich, you don’t write checks! Straight cash, homey. What’s 10 grand to me?”
