Cutler selected to Pro Bowl

Congratulations to former Commodore quarterback Jay Cutler for being selected to the NFL Pro Bowl in just his third season with the Denver Broncos.

With two games remaining in the regular season, Cutler leads the AFC with 3,851 passing yards and is second with 24 touchdown passes. He also has the Broncos (8-6) on pace to earn their first AFC West division title since 2005.

“With as many talented and deserving quarterbacks as there are in the AFC, I was honored and a little surprised this morning when I found out I was named to the Pro Bowl,” Cutler told DenverBroncos.com. “It’s a great individual award that definitely should be shared among a lot of my teammates, especially the offensive line for how well they’ve protected me, and our coaching staff for preparing me to play every week. My primary concern right now is winning Sunday against the Bills and getting into the playoffs, but to be recognized by the league and fans with getting voted into the Pro Bowl is special.”

Quarterbacks Peyton Manning (Indianapolis Colts) and Brett Favre (New York Jets) will join Cutler on the all-star squad.

  1. Congrats to Jay. A well-deserved honor for him (not to mention some great publicity for VU).
