Every morning, the fine folks at Sports Radio Interviews sift through the a.m. drive-time chatter to bring you the best interviews with coaches, players, and personalities across the sports landscape. Today: Greg Koch was unimpressed with Cutler's toughness.
Greg Koch joined KILT in Houston with Josh and Rich to discuss Jay Cutler losing his tampon on national TV and then to try and back up that argument despite the fact that Cutler had been diagnosed with a Grade 2 sprain of the MCL in his knee.
On quarterback play being the difference:
"As I mentioned last week and on Saturday's show, the factor that was going to come down to that game was the X-factor, the Cutler factor, and man, I just never thought that his tampon would fall out on national TV."
His mentality on toughness:
"There's no mentality. If you're a professional athlete, you answer the bell until they tell you there's no way to play. You can brace that thing."
On the fact that the trainers told him he couldn't play:
"Oh, bull. Let me tell you something, nobody would've kept Tom Brady off the field if he wanted to play. Nobody would've kept Peyton Manning off the field. Then you don't just sit on the sideline and ride a bike like a little girl. … The only thing I can think of is maybe Colt McCoy's dad visited him in the locker room at halftime to try and pump him up."
But going so far as making him the butt of a tampon joke?:
"I told you it's a no-strings-attached league."
