Cutler fine with lowering shoulder vs. Steelers

Quarterback Jay Cutler understands why some fans would have wanted him to slide Sunday on a fourth-quarter scramble against the Steelers, but didn’t sound too apologetic for lowering his right, throwing, shoulder into Robert Golden to get ensure a first down.

On his weekly radio show on ESPN 1000, he said he was “Sorry that I’m not sorry” for the move. He said it made sense when scrambling on third down, as the Steelers safety “was stopped” — or at least appeared that way.

Coach Marc Trestman has said, understandably, that he’d prefer Cutler to slide.
