I Don't Think Melvin Ingram Is Losing Any Sleep At The Thought Of Going Up Against Jay Cutler This Week
Look, I absolutely love that answer, and I say that knowing that it's not entirely true. Jay Cutler - for all his flaws - still has an absolute cannon of an arm, and if Melvin Ingram were being completely honest he'd admit that it could potentially present a problem for the Chargers defense.
That said, it warms my heart to finally see an exaggeratory line of bullshit trend in the opposite direction. So often coaches and players feel obligated to wax poetic about an upcoming opponent to the point that they are flat out fabricating reasons to fear them. So yeah, completely dismissing an opposing player as a threat can only stand to make you look stupid in retrospect. However, saying there is nothing about Jay Cutler that concerns a Pro Bowl-caliber pass rusher is far more realistic than building him up to be something more intimidating than a mediocre quarterback who is (potentially begrudgingly) back out of a recent retirement.
