Default Cutler on Marshall

Cutler On Marshall: “He’s A Great Player”
Posted by Aaron Wilson on June 17, 2009, 7:39 p.m. EDT

Peppered with multiple questions about wide receivers Brandon Marshall and Plaxico Burress, Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler stuck with the company line about the team’s need for an upgrade at wide receiver.

Cutler claimed that wide receiver Devin Hester is a true No. 1 wide receiver.

And he didn’t delve much into rumors surrounding the Bears’ potential interest in Marshall, who has asked to be traded, and Burress, a free agent with a pending felony gun case, according to David Haugh of the Chicago Tribune.

“We have everything we need out there,” Cutler said. “We’re going to be more than fine out there. I’m 100 percent comfortable. I think we have more than enough to compete.”

The Bears have been repeatedly linked to Marshall, whom Cutler said he hasn’t spoken with recently after their successful collaboration in Denver prior to Cutler being traded.

“He’s a great player, I played with him for three years and put up some big numbers with him,” Cutler said. “Wherever he ends up, I’m sure he’s going to be successful. Whether or not it’s here, it’s up to the guys upstairs. As of right now, I’m 100 percent happy with what we have.”

Cutler wasn’t surprised about Marshall going public with his unhappiness, recently skipping a mandatory minicamp and asking Broncos owner Pat Bowlen for a trade.

“I knew he wasn’t going to be happy if he didn’t get a new contract,” Cutler said. “I think that’s what the basis of his whole issue with him is getting a new contract. If you look at it from his perspective, I can see where he’s coming from.”

Cutler said that he hasn’t recently sent text messages to Burress after communicating with him earlier this offseason.

Cutler didn’t seem to be counting on Burress coming to Chicago, which has been rumored as a potential destination for the former New York Giants star along with the New York Jets and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Bears coach Lovie Smith made it clear that nothing is imminent as far as possibly acquiring Burress.

“Plaxico Burress is a good football player, we all know that,” Smith said. “We keep all of our options open, but I feel good about the team we have right now and I feel good about our receivers we have right now.

“The door is never closed on anyone available. We’ve said that every time. It’s not like we’re aggressively going after him but we evaluate everyone we think can make our team better.”

So, don’t rule out the Bears as a potential interested party in both wide receivers.

Despite his legal problems, Burress would be simpler to acquire from the standpoint that he’s a free agent.

The Bears don’t have a lot of ammunition left over for a trade for Marshall following the Cutler acquisition.

Both players would be expensive, but Marshall is expected to have an even higher price tag.

Yeah, right. Like the Broncos would trade Marshall to Denver. They'd have to get raped in a deal for Denver to even consider it. How about 2 #1s, a 3rd, Brian Urlacher and Tommie Harris for Marshall? No? Then **** off.

Yep, and if you look at it from the team's perspective, any rational human being can see where they're coming from.

Though I was and still am 100% against trading Cutler, I have a funny suspicion this Chicago thing is going to end badly for him. His offensive line, recievers and coaching talent are a fraction of what he is used too.

Remember how he used to go off on our recievers when they dropped a pass... He could end up blowing a gasket before the bye-week.

I think fans will turn on him faster then fans did here. Chicago is a bigger market faster pace and more pressure on him to succeed see how he deals with that pressure. I think he'll find out Denver was a breeze vs the expectations Bears fans will have for him no more excuses.

There is NOT more pressure for him to succeed in Chicago. That's bunk. By simply showing up he's the best thing they've fielded at that position in 50 years. Here, every mistake is something John Elway wouldn't have done.

Yeah, I don't buy into that a player has more pressure to succeed on a different team. This is the NFL. If you don't produce, you will be gone. Even on crappy teams. And what the hell do you mean Chicago fans expect more? F THAT crap. I expect a superbowl every year and I don't root for the Bears.

Pears, Foster, Myers, Kuper as a rookie, and naturally Nalen in his twilight, Glen Martinez, rarely un-injured in Cut's tenure Javon Walker...

Nope, sorry, don't buy it.

I think the Bears can build a team around him faster then we can build one around Orton. Right now the Bears can make a good play at a WR that is 31 years old that has over 500 catches 7800 yards and 55 career tds. The best we can do is Kyle Orton. Laugh all you want but at the end of the day **** is ****ed up in Bronco land and the Bears are out of the news.

Those are very good points ... that '07 team was only an average supporting cast. Remember Clady, Harris and Royal were brand new last year ... and we vaulted to what, the 2nd most yards in the league?

I can see TheDave's point, but I seriously doubt Jay melts down. Anybody would learn/mature some from what happened here, and Jay knows all eyes will be focused on his maturity or lack thereof. My guess is he'll live long and prosper in Chicago.

I agree. I actually think he'll be a more mature player and person there than he would have developed into had he have stayed here. Simply because of what he must have learnt this offseason, and because of the attention he no doubt knows he is going to get on and off the field. Granted, he would have got attention here as well, I just think that in his mind, he's going to be more aware of it now.

I agree with your point. I wasn't making it a Jay vs John thing though.

Later on I'll explain my view.

He might mature in time but, overnight I have my doubts he's too aloof.
