Default Champ on Cutler

http://blogs.chicagosports.chicagotr...ay-cutler.html

Marc Silverman and Jeff Dickerson from ESPN 1000 radio Chicago interviewed Denver Broncos defensive back Champ Bailey on the Waddle & Silvy show Monday. Bailey was asked where he thought new Bears quarterback Jay Cutler ranked among the top quarterbacks in the league.

``Well hes definitely in the top 10 as far as what hes done to this point,'' Bailey said. ``Now where he can be, he can be the best in the game, he has that ability. The guys very smart, very sharp, a good arm; he has all the stuff youd want. He reminds me of a Marino, Elway type of guy, and hes going to be a great winner for them. Its unfortunate for us that we had to lose a guy like that, but weve got to move on, weve got some quality guys back there that can definitely get the job done so weve just got to go out and handle business as necessary.''

Bailey was asked if he ever questioned Cutler as a leader.

``No, not at all,'' he said. ``Thats one thing about him, hes not a shouter, but when he gets upset and he knows weve got to get going he opens his mouth. I appreciate that from him, Id rather have a guy that leads by example than a guy that talks all the time.''

And Bailey's thoughts on the trade?

``The possibility was a shock, but once in sunk in a little bit, thats just the nature of the NFL, you never know,'' he said. ``You see guys leaving here, look at Jason Taylor, he left, a number five all decade guy, you never thought hed leave Miami, but it just happens.''

But I thought Cutler wasn't a leader.

Sounds like Champ thinks trading Cutler was as stupid of a move as I thought it was.

You read an article where a leader was quoted.

One guy? If you ever watch the NFL Channel...I'd say it includes their entire cast. Then of course, don't forget the Duke, who said that he thought it was very disapointing that they let him go.

Let's face it...unless your Champ Bailey...you're not going to say anything to rock the boat...if you're a current player.

It's done...let's move on. But, let's at least be honest....it was a idiotic move to let a talent like that walk away!

Sorry, did Champ bash the organization or say the team was in shambles, or that we'd been "torn apart?"

Maybe I missed it.

Those are the claims being thrown around by the widows like yourself. Yet, we haven't heard it from any players.

Champ made some nice, safe, vanilla statements about Cutler... which is absolutely irrelevant to the claims that the team is in disarray and on the verge of mutiny, as you and your fellow clucking hens claim.

Good try, though.

"It’s unfortunate for us that we had to lose a guy like that, but we’ve got to move on, we’ve got some quality guys back there that can definitely get the job done so we’ve just got to go out and handle business as necessary"

Wow, maybe that's code for "the team is being torn apart."

That or Champ has just moved on and he's not going to piss in another dude's cheerios just because they're now on different teams.

You know, something 95% of this board needs to learn to do. Jay Cutler doesn't play for the Broncos, so short of how much he can help the Bears lose next year, I don't give two ****s. Many people on this forum still haven't come to grips with that reality.

You do know he said he could be the best in the game, right? His vanilla statement is all he could possibly say without causing publicity issues.

I don't know what kind of vanilla you get over there wherever you are, but those were pretty clearly statements of respect, admiration and regret:
"He reminds me of a Marino, Elway type of guy, and hes
going to be a great winner for them. Its unfortunate for
us that we had to lose a guy like that."
Nothing vanilla about that ... that's a salute to a former teammate. I agree that he's not saying the current team is in disarray or anything like that, but he definitely admires the kid, and regrets losing him.

Or, maybe Champ has too much class to call him out.

Of course Quitler could be one of the best. He's got immense physical talent.

This is a news-flash to you?

Champ stated the obvious, played it safe and avoided controversy. Typical Champ. Classy, smart.

He also said the team would move on. He probably should have advised that some fans do the same.

Just imagine if Champ would have called out Cutler and insinuated that it was a good move to trade him and stated he was a poor leader....the anti-Cutler camp would be throwing a party right now.

Champ could have very easily said nothing....looks to me like he wanted to make his opinion known.

Maybe he is the next Bronco looking for a ticket out of town....

Bailey isn't likely to stir the pot. He's generally not that kind of a guy. When asked a question about Cutler, he just gave a string of very safe answers.

Of course, Cutler has immense talent. No news there. Of course, he's got a chance to be great. No news there.

Now, on the leadership issue... what would Bailey have to gain from taking a big, public swing at Cutler? I'm not even saying that Champ DOES think Quitler is a punk... but if he did, what's to gain for him by stirring **** up?

Champ is just a classy guy in that regard. He said nice, safe things and rightly so.

Conversely, he said nice, safe things about the organization. So, believe what you want to believe.

Actually when Bailey isn't happy he does stir the pot. He forced his way of Washington and had some choice statements on his way out.

BS- He didn't like the way Synder ran the team. The gave him and Lavar similar contracts and told them to sign. Champ declined and was shipped out.

I'm not sure I buy a veteran defensive players take on a QBs leadership skill.

Since Champ is a lead by example kind of guy, of course he prefers the same, that doesn't mean that's what the team needs.
