Should have "LOSSES" and "WINS" as literal stats. Orton WON the game vs. Cinci, and Cutler LOST the game vs. GB.

ORTON NEEDS MORE TDs!

He's silencing the critics, but I still expected him to be putting up more gaudy stats.

The only gaudy stats I really care about are:

0 INTs
0 Fumbles
0 Losses

Maybe people don't get it. It doesn't matter how Cutler does. It doesn't matter if he throws 450 yards and 3td's or 100 yards and 3int's. Stats are nice, but, at the end of the day, they don't matter. All that matters is Wins and Losses. I don't care what he does, as long as the Bears lose and Broncos win. Win ugly, win pretty, it doesn't matter.

Cutler will have good games and bad games. So will Orton. Just let it go.

I'm honestly starting to wonder if Cutler has enough patience to run our Offense as well as Orton does.

Go ahead.


Run with it.

As much as I dislike Cutler there is no denying we'd be nasty with him as our QB.

Nah. Cutler is NOT the right QB for this system. Brees on the other hand... just imagine.

Until Cutler cuts the mistakes out he won't be elite.

Chicago has a cream puff schedule so he probably will do pretty well.
cutler on this team would have been something provided he bought into the system. I'm just not sure he would have.

So far the trade btwn Cutler and Orton are working out great for both teams.

The comparisons btwn how both QB's perform will continue to be a big story all season long and rightfully so.

Lets all sit back and let the chips fall where they may and see which QB performed the best and who made their teams Better for the 2009 season vs the 2008.

Orton will need to become more efficient with completing passes as the season wears on. Kyle won't have the luxury of throwing away 5 or 6 passes every game, especially if teams get a 10 to 13 point lead on Denver.

Point is, Orton is playing indecisive at times as far as pulling the trigger to complete passes at the precise time of opportunity when the receiver is open. Good defenses will close the window of opportunity really fast btwn the time the Broncos WR's are open and the time Orton makes his decision to throw the ball.

Any chance we can just have a big "Jay Cutler Thread" or something?

I realise it's a topic people are going to want to talk about, but I don't see the need for thread after thread about the guy when all of them are pretty much saying some variation of the exact same thing.

How did Orton win the game? By throwing a ball that was tipped to another player?

The D won that one.

This is what I don't get, this off season had a level of changes that this franchise has never experienced it is going to be talked about for years to come why are people even surprised about the level of discussion. Another point is every one of these threads is clearly marked as to the subject matter it so easy to not open them it makes me wonder why all the objection, what is the real reason.
