I was looking for some funny Fantasy Football team names this week, and one that kept popping up in the Google searches was "Smokin' Jay Cutler." Of course Cutler came out of retirement and signed with the Miami Dolphins this week, so I decided to do a little research to find out the meaning behind that nickname, and I'm glad I did!
Back in 2012, a guy named Brandon Freeberg decided to make a meme that poked fun at the apathetic look that always seems to be on Jay Cutler's face. The meme went viral, and the rest is pretty much history. Lucky for us, Jay is back and so is that look, which first made an appearance at Cutler's press conference with the Dolphins this week. And just like that, the "Smokin' Jay" memes returned (you can check them out below)! Read more about how this all started here.
If you're not following "Smokin' Jay Cutler" on social media, you should probably should (links below). I'm sure people will be having a lot of fun with it this season!
