|Mike Tice and quarterback Jay Cutler share a laugh on the sideline last season at Soldier Field.|
Cutler has been criticized by some outside Halas Hall this season for yelling at and bumping teammate
But Tice has no problem at all with the quarterback.
"I like the brashness about him," Tice said. "I like the fact that when things aren't going right, he's going to voice his opinion. It doesn't mean he's always right. But I like that part of Jay Cutler. I like working with Jay Cutler. I'm anxious to see him and ride him and ride our receivers and our backs and that offensive line to the Super Bowl."
Tice has spent 31 seasons in the NFL as a player, assistant coach and head coach with five different organizations, and is still seeking his first Super Bowl championship.
"I have one hole in my chest," Tice said. "I've been in this league for over 30 years and I've never won a Super Bowl ring. Who knows what Mike Tice will do if we win the Super Bowl this year? Eighty-eight and out the gate, see you later alligator. I'm going home and smoking cigars."
