The rivalry simmering between Broncos quarterback Jay Cutler and Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers is one of the subplots as the two teams battle for the AFC West title on Sunday night. Now players on both sides are adding fuel to this fire, the latest being Chargers linebacker Matt Wilhelm, who made like Bobby “the Brain” Heenan with some pointed comments about Cutler.
Wilhelm was one of three players who were caught on camera taunting Cutler last season and he explained the incident to the San Diego Union Tribune‘s Kevin Acee:
- “Jay Cutler, being the guy that he is, made some shrewd comments to SP and myself,” Wilhelm recalled of the in-game dialogue. “Brandon Marshall was making comments throughout the game. All these comments are being made, and they’re not making plays. Yet they’re the ones going home, and we’re preparing for our playoff game. It was essentially a wave to him good-bye and hopefully have a great offseason.” MORE
