I'll bite on this one and say Shanny and Cutler. John would've owned every record but for Reeves. Of course, he may not have been the legendary comeback king, either. Hard to say.

Most talent + good coach 70% potential
Top talent + good coach 70% potential
Most talent + better coach 100% potential
Top talent + better coach 80% potential

(non scientific, mind you)

Sorry you all - this is a trick question. The answer of course is John Elway. Because Shanny won't start his rookie QB (unless his hand is forced by injury) where as Reeves could not resist pulling Deberg for Elway.

So... While Jay "the kid" has a better chance to succeed w/ Shanny as his coach then Elway with Reeves, it's because he has Shanny as his coach (and thus he's not playing) that means Elway had the better potential to win more games as a rookie.

the question could be misconstrued insofar as the wording of "game winning potential". Elway had more game winning potential than any quarterback in the history of the game. Hell, Reeves is thought of as a good coach because elway carried his ass on his back. If you are comparing teams, than Cutler would have a more talented team, but if you are talking pure "game winning" potential....

Elway

If you had to go into a season and was contracted to make 100 grand for every win and nothing for a loss your team is in place but you have to take a package deal on coach QB one option you have is rookie Elway and coach Revees the other is rookie Cutler and coach Shanahan, who do you take?

John Elway didn't come to a team that had just gone to the AFC Championship game, and the receivers are better now than they were then. Reeves didn't know how to use Elway and Shanahan did.

I will say that it will be near impossible for Jay to be as good a player as Elway. Elway was so good that opposing teams never felt safe in the fourth quarter even if they had a two score lead. I mean, it was like you couldn't stop him. He was such a tremendous athlete too.

TUG
08-15-2006, 07:16 PM
Elway was a once in a generation talent that was not used to his fullest potential for the first ten years of his career. Once Fassel was his OC we started to see the numbers he could put up with an offense built around him. When Mike came in he got something he never had a balanced team with great coaching. What we may have with Cutler is a tremendous talent surrounded by a balanced team with great coaching. It would be unfair for anyone to compare Elway to Cutler because of the vastly different situations. I would have to choose this situation just because of the quality of the team that will be around Cutler. But that is a big if no one knows what the future holds with Cutler and we all know the special gift as Bronco Fans we had in Elway.

I believe that it's just a matter of practicality. Jake has burnt Shanahan three times in the playoffs. What's more practical: giving him a shot at doing it a fourth time, or getting the future of your franchise much needed playoff experience?

Plus, by the end of the year, I believe Cutler will know enough of the offense to give us our best shot at winning.

Physically, he's a better quarterback than Jake. That's just undeniable. He throws a better ball, with better velocity , and better accuracy.

Don't listen to me though. Listen to your own head when you watch him through the preseason. There's no way that kind of talent can stay on the bench for long. Maybe I'm getting caught up in the hype... But the way Cutler delivers a football is unreal.

I know people want to shout down any hint of quarterback controversey... But we've got the real deal on our hands here.

I guess... I don't see the Kyle Boller scenario, especially since he's been running for his life at Vandy for so long.

I don't think Shanahan would throw Cutler in before he's ready.

I'm just saying that he'll be ready.

See I just don't buy that theory, you don't have to" throw him in " before he is ready and ruin him. There is a very real possibility he will be ready early mid season or at least at sometime during the season. This I will say when he is ready Shanahan will know it and so will the rest of the team. They will know because they will see it.

True, but Cutler looks much better now than Boller ever has. The touch and accuracy that Cutler puts on the ball at high velocity is rare. He's got alot of work to do, but his skills coming out of college are great. The passes that impressed me the most were the TE routes between the hashes and the underneath stuff where he would skim a ball over the linebackers and put the ball between the numbers of a guy in full stride. Beautiful stuff.

Those types of throws can render a defense useless. If a player like Cutler can take advantage of those small spaces in the defense between levels, then the whole offense opens up. Much like Manning has done to us in the past. Cutler looks like a Dan Marino who can run like Steve Young and plays with the poise of few before him.

Clockwork Orange
08-16-2006, 02:44 AM

This is where we disagree.

I loved what I saw from Cutler. Hell, you were in the chat room during the game when I couldn't stop going on about him. That said, he's got a long way to go before he's ready to face #1 defenses who'll be throwing schemes, blitzes and coverages at him that he's never even seen.

All the talent is there, but Jesus, the kid hasn't even had enough time to learn the entire playbook yet. Remember, that was one of Shanahan's big things when he drafted Cutler was that he'd be able to open up the entire playbook again. After seeing Cutler's poise, intelligence and physical gifts firsthand (I keep saying to myself, "Man, he really can make all the throws!") I have no doubt that that's true, but not this year.

Give the kid his redshirt year to study and learn the system. Once he's got that down, the sky's the limit. I just don't see that happening this year.

I still think that Plummer gives the Broncos the best chance to succeed. Lost in all of the Cutler talk is the fact that Jake had a nice camp himself and is a veteran of the system. Jake also has the support of his teammates.

I dont think that it will take long for Bronconation to revolt if Jake has a single bad outing, or if Denver loses some games that they should win (whether its Jakes fault or not). That wont be a pretty thing. Especially given the fact that Jake has done so well here.

What I'm saying is this:

If Jake tanks it big time, Jay may take over, but we will have already lost too many games to make up the ground and get into the playoffs. The AFC West won't allow that kind of margin for error.

A healthy Jake all season long should get the Broncos in the playoffs.

A shaky Jake will knock the Broncos out of the playoffs long before Shanny decides to start Cutler in a last desperate attempt to salvage the season.

Injury to an effective Jake is the only way on earth I see Jay starting any game(s) this season coupled with the Broncos having a hope of making the playoffs.

And if he overexposes this kid early and turns him into a Ryan Leaf or a Todd Marinovich, he'll be risking something big:

The chance to slowly cultivate Jay into the kind of quarterback that could be the hub of Shanny's next great team.

If he can win another couple of SBs with a well prepared Cutler down the road, there will be no doubt that Mike will be mentioned in discussions about the greatest coaches ever.

You're right. He has job security already. It's not like he has to start Cutler now to save his job.

Patience.

And if he overexposes this kid early and turns him into a Ryan Leaf or a Todd Marinovich, he'll be risking something big:

Ya know what our argument comes down to one thing, how long is Cutler's learning curve. I suspect it's shorter than most of you are assuming.

You're assuming that our assumptions are incorrect.

Beezlebub has been out for about 6 weeks when he apparently couldn't escape a Rottie.

http://animal.discovery.com/fansites/jeffcorwin/carnival/feline/gallery/africanwildcat_thumb.jpg

He's about off IR now tho. He has refused to let his his injury restrict his recreational activites, but I still put some antibiotic salve on his butt peridodically. He still isn't getting any calls from NFL clubs. Something about his size or something like that.

Honestly he was hurt pretty bad but he's not developed an infection. One side has completely closed and the other is close. He licked all his hair off so it's rather comical. It's growing back tho. The old man said he would be fine if he cleaned it.

Well he's almost back for the regular season. Now he just needs a team.

I hear that... I hate 6 on a quarterback since watching happy hopper Bubster in there with his bobble Bronco act.

Selecting 8 would have been sweet, but I have a feeling that 6 will grow on me.


LOL, Bubby was a nice guy but goofy as hell. I guess that's what happens when you have (6?) sisters that used to dress you as a kid. I remember whenever John made a play he'd be jumping up and down like a retard on the sidelines.

The AFC West? Try the entire AFC. There's a lot of quality teams fighting for only 6 playoff spots. There's six playoff quality teams in the AFC West & AFC North alone.

3 in the AFC West? You mean the Broncos, Chargers, and Raiders? I don't think the Raiders have much of a chance...Broncos and Chargers for me.ROFL!

does it matter?

what would seem the better question is this:

who has more game winning potential in 2006?
a seasoned but less gifted plummer, or a talented but inexperienced cutler?

the answer of course is easy.

next?

See I just don't buy that theory, you don't have to" throw him in " before he is ready and ruin him. There is a very real possibility he will be ready early mid season or at least at sometime during the season. This I will say when he is ready Shanahan will know it and so will the rest of the team. They will know because they will see it.


And that time has come!

In truth I don't remember much about the '83 team as I was just a pup. But I have sense that this is a better team (all around) and certianly more QB-friendly.

But I honestly don't hold very high hope for Cutler this year. I am excited as anyone to see him play, but I believe he will play more like a rookie (ala Leinhart or Orton) than Romo. Hope I'm wrong.

I also hope this town doesn't pound him down before he can succeed.
