Default Chicago paper on Cutler

Leading his team to a lopsided win over the Seattle Seahawks in a divisional playoff game was not a defining moment in Jay Cutler’s as-yet-undefined career — no matter how many wrote or said otherwise.

Beating the worst playoff team in history at home is not how legends are forged.

All Cutler proved last week was that a mid-sized moment wasn’t too big for him. It’s going to take a stronger statement for people to quit viewing him as a more fleet-of-foot version of Rex Grossman. It’s going to take a win over the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday at Soldier Field for Cutler to begin to earn the respect every quarterback craves.

http://www.suntimes.com/sports/footb...arterback.html



I know what to expect out of Rodgers. I don’t know what I’ll get from Jay Cutler. Even in the Bears’ playoff victory over Seattle — one of Cutler’s best games of the season — there were two, maybe three passes the Seahawks could have picked off. Could have, but didn’t. Will Cutler be so careless and lucky against the Packers?

You’ll often hear quarterbacks say they’re playing against the opposing defense, not the opposing quarterback. But this is as close to a cage match of two QBs as you’re going to get. Rodgers the wise, skilled operator vs. Cutler the physically gifted, mercurial question mark.

Nope. ESPN radio did "confidence picks" on all four QBs for this weekend and Cutler came in fourth. A strong performance and a win against GB will do a lot to elevate his reputation. A loss and poor performance will cement his current rep.

I was just thinking, how come we never discuss cutler very much here? And than this beauty of a thread popped up.


So..... What is everyone's opinion onthe man? Do we like the trade? Did we get good compensation?


Discuss.

Quiet today and I couldn't resist. I thought it was interesting that a couple of Chicago Sun Times articles were echoing what a lot of us are saying in the Cutler discussions this week.

But but but...he did something only Otto Graham ever did...automatically makes him the best QB ever...

If Green Bay wins this week alot of these Cutler threads are quickly going to drop off the front page.

Sanchez is an odd case because he generally sucks all season and then seems to rise to the occasion in the playoffs.

The sound you hear is goalposts constantly being moved back. Here are the facts: 1) We're 4-12. 2) Cutler is in the NFC Title Game.

Funny how you conveniently left out this part of the article. Now, that is some funny ****.

"Bears fans can take consolation in the fact I’ve been wrong often this season. The team has surprised me at almost every step, and it might surprise me again Sunday. But I don’t think so."

Yeah, I can see why the McD nuthuggers are latching on to this guy's words. Too funny.

This game will not change my mind on whether I think the trade was in the best interests of the Denver Broncos. Now maybe if Cutler retires after the season and never plays again I might have to change my mind and agree with the Anti Cutler crowd.

Even if Tebow goes on to become an All Pro I don't believe the way you build a football team is to trade talent and then use the aquired pick to replace the same positition

BTW I'm glad you guys are admitting that you are now bound by Woody or Kiszla's opinions going forward because that's exactly what you are doing here...."see....see...the writers in his own city don't like him, so therefore its true that he sucks".

Aww. What is funny is that you believe a Bears win somehow validates your opinion. If you believe McDaniels was wrong, that should be good enough. For the people who don't care Cutler is gone, they will continue to not care.

Which reminds me. Any luck finding my posts where I bashed the team?

Can someone please why you must be a McD "nuthugger" if you think Cutler is not a good quarterback?

True. Sportswriters have no perspective on the team they cover. At all.

If you don't care, why do keep posting in threads like this? Right.

I don't need to waste any more heartbeats on you. You continue to support McD's decisions.

Here is my feeling on Cutler threads that he is no longer a Bronco (from the time he was traded until now)....

What's wrong with supporting McDaniels' decisions? The team really sucked with him but its not like the guy didn't make one singular good move. You think the Broncos would be in the playoffs if we had Cutler? Please.

It's highly likely that the Denver Broncos would not be 4-12 and in worst shape in franchise history if Cutler was kept and the emphasis was put on defense. That said, I have a renewed sense of excitement now that a true Bronco in Elway is at the helm and the Cheatriot fungus has taken a demotion in St. Louie.
