Green Bay Packers Hall of Famer Greg Koch was pretty excited after the Packers beat the Chicago Bears on Sunday. But he was more excited to talk about Bears quarterback Jay Cutler than he was about the fact that his former team is heading to the Super Bowl.Koch played most of his 11 seasons with the Packers in the late 70s and early 80s, but says his argument has nothing to do with the fact that he’s an old-school guy. Like plenty of former players on Twitter on Sunday, Koch takes Cutler to task. Unlike most of those players, Koch does so by making Jay Cutler the butt of a tampon joke. Greg Koch joined KILT in Houston with Josh and Richto 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.”
