When Jay Cutler left Denver in favor of Chicago, following one of the greatest hissy-fits in local sports history, he left behind plenty of fans who lamented his departure. His behavior since then has caused that number to diminish considerably, however, and his most recent comments about the Mile High City on a Chicago radio station will only hasten the plunge. "In Denver, we didn't have this many fans at all," he said, referring to the number of folks who showed up to see the squad during a practice session. "We weren't even able to accommodate that many fans. That's Chicago Bears fans for you. They're proud of their Bears."

Note: More than 13,000 fans showed up to watch the Broncos practice at Invesco Field yesterday.

"It's a lot (different)," Cutler went on, after being asked to compare the city he ditched for the one where he's based now. "Denver's like a 6 and Chicago's like a 9. It's a quite bit different. Just the fans and how passionate they are, that's probably the biggest difference."

Betcha Denver fans will be passionate when the Bears come to Mile High on August 30 for a preseason game. Expect a stadium full of people to chant the word "pussy" (a title allegedly conferred upon him by Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher) for a couple of hours straight whether Kyle Orton blows or not. Because even most of Cutler's local supporters no longer believe in J.C.
