Jay Cutler Being Jay Cutler

Why is Jay Cutler despised?

Cutler was named to Forbes’ list of the most disliked athletes in America yesterday. His company on that list includes Michael Vick, Metta World Peace, Manti Te’o, Tiger Woods, and Lance Armstrong.

What has Cutler done to earn his place among the loathed? He’s an above average quarterback and by most accounts, a decent guy who devotes substantial time to charity efforts.

The answer, in short: He’s engaged to one of the most hated reality show cast members of all time. Whom he proposed to via text message.

As fiancée Kristin Cavallari of Hills fame told E! News:

“It was so silly. I was in the airport, leaving Chicago. We had just spent however many days together and we were texting and somehow it came up, like, ‘Oh, shall we get married?’ We’re like, ‘Yeah, OK.’ And then he sent my ring in the mail. So I actually had my ring sitting at home for a couple of weeks before I put it on.”

Cavallari’s quote encompasses every microcosm of disdain that fans have for Cutler.
