Seattle Seahawks defensive end Raheem Brock didn't apologize for calling Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler a "sissy" via Twitter, but Brock did admit he might have edited himself if he had all the facts.
After Cutler left the NFC Championship Game in the third quarter with a knee injury, Brock joined the chorus of athletes who questioned Cutler's toughness. The Bears revealed the following day that Cutler had a sprained MCL and was told by the medical staff not to return. The Bears lost 21-14 to the Green Bay Packers.
"Cutler…wut a sissy! Guaranteed if it was brett farve..he would still be in the game!" Brock tweeted at the time.
Brock joined "The Waddle & Silvy Show" on ESPN 1000 on Friday to explain his comments about Cutler, who had a strong game in eliminating the Seahawks in the divisional round of the playoffs.
"I apologize for comparing another quarterback to Brett Favre," Brock joked. "It might have been a little out of hand, but it is what it is. I'm trying to get past it and not talk about it no more."
Brock said he didn't realize the extent of Cutler's injury.
"If I had known he was hurt and the doctors didn't want him to go back in, I probably wouldn't have said it," he said. "I think he's a great player. All the hits he's taken all year and still being able to go back out there and play like he does, he's a good quarterback. But at the time, that's the way I felt."
