Default Chicago fans talk about Orton about as much as we talk about Cutler

A couple of threads from a board that is about twice as slow as the mane.

It's funny, everything bad in Chicago is EVERYBODYS fault besides Cutler (hmmm, where have we seen this before? ) and Orton is just plain ol' lucky. Actually, they can't stand to see Orton do good. It just hurts them too much.

The best post was this one:

Funny thing is last year the Bears were better than Denver.

Orton is a man.

Jay Cutler is a boy.

...That pretty much sums it up right there.

Watching Orton perform in the clutch is a breath of fresh air. He's quickly winning over the hearts of Broncos fans. I see in him the same competitive fire that was in Plummer. However, Orton doesnt have Plummer's skills and instead he has the mind that Plummer could never seize hold of.

No they won in the trade because Johnny Knox can run really fast and ran back a kickoff when he had exceptional blocking and noone touched him.

Remember how Denver fans were so insecure earlier this year? You know, jumping at any sign Cutler might not be that great, rooting hard for Chicago to look bad so we could save some face in a trade they "knew" we lost. Meanwhile Chicago fans seemed to simply have pity on us, hoping Orton would play okay for old times sake.

While I'll gladly admit I was and still am rooting against Cutler and Chicago, the tables have turned a little. Chicago fans are starting to resent Orton's success. Just listening to the local radio guys today hoping so hard that the Chargers would win and "expose" McDaniels. It's setting in that they may not have "won" the trade so clearly. In short, it's hilarious.

Haha well that was technically my fault, I put McBuff up to it. He didn't even have a username at the Bears board before that. No disloyalty there, McBuff is a good guy even if he does like Cutler too much.

What should be irking them even more is the creeping, subtle feeling that the Broncos have a defense that could rival that of the '85 Bears and is absolutely dominating games in the fourth quarter against some of the best offensive teams in the league.

That damn BroncoBuff, splitting time between the Broncos and Bears board.

We know where his loyalties lie.

I love that the Bears want to say if Cutler had Orton's Oline and WR's he wouldn't be throwing INT"s. haha.

When he had the exact same WR's and Oline as Orton this year he threw 18 INTS! Orton played behind a worse Oline in Chicago last year and almost took them to the playoffs.

Delusional would be putting it mildly.

Haha dude, seriously, we bet on another thread here about how Chicago fans would answer that poll. He wasn't even a member at the Bears board and had to sign up to post it.

McBuff's a good guy, even if we disagree on the Cutler/Orton thing.

the way i see him is comparable skill set to Griese, possibly slightly stronger arm, but with the fire, determination and leadership skills of Plummer with a really great football mind.

if he remains in Denver long term which i believe will happen, he is going to become a pro bowler in this system.

Plummer was a very one-dimensional QB. He threw well on the run and played with a lot of fire. Orton is a MUCH better pocket passer than Plummer. And, as you said, he makes better decisions.

why would you root for a guy that didn't want to play for your team, forced a trade and then dissed you as a fan? Seriously? Why? You like punishment?

Why would you root for ANYONE other than the Broncos?

Do you like to stew over the girls who kick you in the face then prance around in front of you?

Orton looks so relaxed out there. I just ****ing love it. Dude was just minding his own business with a winning record in Chicago, and got traded into a ****-storm. He just stayed focused, made the best of it and here we are... 6-0.

I have no idea where he'll take us in the future, but this guy deserves every bit of the glory he's enjoying right now.

Chicago fans were pretty complimentary of him when he was traded. That's always a tell, imo. If fans hate to see a guy go (and teammates)... there's usually a good reason.

As for Jay Cutler, maybe when he wins something... we can have a serious discussion about him. Right now, he's just the punch-line to a bad joke.

wait until the Bears are 5-7. then we'll know how the Bears locker room really feels about Jay. we got some early indications from Uhrlacher during training camp that not everyone was seeing unicorns and rainbows after the trade.

What is it with these kids and their Jay love?

Cutler only started for us a couple years... so it cant be for his longevity. Fan favorite?... he was pouty and aloof. Was it his winning record...ummm no. So what is it? I've never seen anything like it.

Then if that wasn't enough he kicked all us fans in the teeth on the way out.

All I can think is that these are really young Bronco fans that never really knew anything but Cutler last couple years. Or maybe it's geration FF where players matter and teams don't. It's a mystery...

C'mon... Cutler was the great hope. He was the new Elway. That's why everyone fell in love with him. He had the arm and the moxie to throw the ball into incredibly tight spots and make highlight reel plays. He was incredibly fun to watch, even if his lack of leadership skills and general aloofness meant that he was unlikely to produce a superbowl....

I can completely understand why folks here are still behind Cutler. He plays with guts (even if he often lacks brains). He played well on Sunday night. He led his team back to tie the game and marched them down on the final drive in a bid to tie. That's the thing with Cutler... for the spectacular plays he made (he made several incredible throws that 29 other QB's had no shot of making), he also made 5 or 6 stupid ones (two picks, and several throws into tight coverage). Some folks will never understand that those mistakes cost you games. If the playoffs were best 2 out of 3, then maybe it works. But in games you MUST win... well two picks can kill you. It did for the Bears on Sunday night...

By the way I wish Orton the best he was a class act in Chicago.

I wish him the best also. However, I want the donkeys to crash and burn. Every week at work I have to hear "Hey we're X-0, what's the Bears record? Yea, how many picks has Cutler thrown?" It's enough to make my ears bleed a little bit
Poor guy...

Actually the Bears fans seem cool, and I have nothing against the bears. Cutler, on the other hand... The more INTs, and other failures that may find him (no serious injuries) the happier football fan I will become. If his reason is stronger than his ego, he should already suspects that one of his biggest failures was leaving the Broncos.

The other Bronco players understood that it's a business; they understood that being coached doesn't always mean your ass is kissed. So why was Cutler so thin-skinned? Narcissistic, spoiled, little ****ing baby!

What does his skills have to do with still being behind him though? That's the real question I have. He didn't want to be a Bronco (after Shanahan & co. was let go) forced his way out in an ugly divorce and kicked us fans in the teeth for good measure? I don't care if he's the next coming of Elway/Montana/Manning combined... The guy disses Bronco fans everywhere. What kind of tool would still follow him? Besides...He's not even on our team anymore.
