View Poll Results: Is Cutler a coach killer?
YES, I can see that because he has proven nothing and is over rated 133 68.21%
NO WAY, he's a franchise QB and will be a coach maker not breaker. 62 31.79%
Voters: 195. You may not vote on this poll

Default Do you think Cutler is a budding coach killer?

A case can be made that Shanny's fall from grace started when he drafted Cutler with a squad that just went to the AFCC. Lovie will be put under the microscope if Cutler struggles and the Bears miss the playoffs. I think Cutler is so over rated that he will take down a few HCs before everyone catches on that while a possessor of a great arm he is a loser between the ears.

Wow, you really can't get over yourself. How can you call this dude a coach killer at this point in his career? I hated how he left town as much as the next guy, but you are counting your eggs a little early. I'm not a Cutler fan, but aside from the first half of thefirst game, he's been nothing short of solid.

you have too extreme choices there so I went the safe route and said no way. A coach needs to corral his QB like Shanny did with Plummer in 05 and the ints dropped dramatically. NOW, if a coach tries to do that with Cutler and he still thinks he is better than Elway and f ups the game plan, then he is in trouble. He doesnt have the Elway click and it would kill his team if he tried. If that does happen (Cutler getting hard headed) and we know he is capable of it, then he can ruin a coach. Hmm, now you know my problem with two choices. I could go both ways on that poll

I think that even thinking the thought that Cutler killed Shanahan's coaching career is ignorant, let alone actually putting your body through the motions of actually posting it.

I mean... Seriously...

Young and inconsistent? Yes. Bad? No.

What makes you think he is bad? Was it the fact that he has two game winning drives and two game winning TDs in 3 games this year? Do you really think this is the first QB that is cocky and has an attitude problem? Do you really think that hurts their skill? I don't. Aikman even said so when asked about Cutler this offseason. Specifically, he said "Us QBs are a different breed".

I think cutler will be very good as they learn that the run game still exists even when you have a QB. They always have decent defenses and special teams. With the RB that they have, Cutler shouldn't be asked to carry that team, and he won't have to. That will make him successful.

Choices are worded pretty narrowly, but he's definitely not a "coach killer."

Our defense the past tow years, now THERE'S a coach killer.

I think the Bears are lucky to be 2-1. They are getting nothing from the ground game and Jay has 0 chemistry with his receivers.

Considering some talking heads at Si , fox , and espn are saying he is having a MVP type year to have the Bears at 2-1 with as little weapons on O as they have makes this thread is stupid ...

Craw back in your mud hut and prep your end of the world kit and stop making stupid threads.

Shanahan; Ya Pat all I need to get another Lombarti is a franchise QB, I know it looks like we are close and were one win away but the hell with the D we need a QB and besides the D was Coyer just give me Cutler and your check book and I'll bring you a winner.

Pat Bowlen aka (Gutless drunk); Well Mike I gave you Cutler, let you blow up the 05 team and gave you my check book and you lost the division with a 3 game lead and 3 games to go, what happened.

Shanahan;

Well we put it on Cutler and he had a couple of bad games but we'll get them next year we are really close now Pat, jay just needs another weapon.

Hey TJ if this is such a ridiculous question why are there 5 yes to 4 no.

I'd say that looks like a good poll in the making

He just thought he needed a QB? What? You haven't folloed the Broncos long because he redid the entire offense. Last year, they were all rookie-3rd year players. The veteran defense was supposed to make the young offense ok but it fell apart the instant Wilson went down(along with a few other injuries). He also didn't try to replace anything on that offense until that offense proved it couldn't move the ball the year after the AFCCG. But hey, don't let the facts get in the way.

This is what was wrong with the off-season. Outside of that first half of the first game Jay has done nothing to prove the people that was upset that Jay got traded wrong. Do you see any line up to eat your crow about Jay being a very good QB threads? No in fact they are still claiming Jay to be a bad QB. At this point in time they are getting more production out of the 5th round pick that we sent them then we are with the first round pick that we got from them.

If I was to say Jay would still have over 4000 yard passing and 30 plus TDs his first season with the Bears with a crappy OL and no real weapons at WR I would have been told to bend me over a rock and go be a Bears fan.

Just like a chick tho , bish bish bish , wait a few weeks and and rehash the same $hit...

OK lets say it another way for the obtuse;

Fix the defense in the draft and free agency after 05 and take a run. Plummer under Shanny's thumb was fine at the QB position. That team deserved a run. When Shanny drafted Cutler and blow the teamup that is when he lost the players.
