Mr. Scot

Bears re-sign Cutler

Recommended Posts

Lord have mercy...

 

if you added up all the money they've paid him and the picks they gave up to get him, I wonder what the total cost would look like.

 

(and then add in a ratio of cost to playoff wins)

Side Note: General consensus was already that Julius Peppers was a goner in Chicago.  Seems even more likely now.

Lol the majority of Chicago fans are ecstatic with the deal. LMFAO

 

They were better with McCown.

Urlacher agrees.

It totally baffles me the sheer arrogance of some teams to prove to the league that their guy is the right choice when it's reallly obvious he shouldn't be on the team anymore.

Look at this from another perspective:

 

If you decide not to keep Cutler, what is Plan B?

You're going to start over at QB when you have Matt Forte, Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffrey and Martellus Bennett and McCown is talking about retiring?

 

The front office had little choice and Cutler actually had one of his best years statistically. Chicago's bigger concern is the lack of any defense.

Plan B: Build around a new quarterback. Houston is doing it, with the same caliber of weapons as Chicago's. Add in the fact that they just paid Schaub last off-season, they're making the right move by moving forward with someone else. Schaub isn't a winner. Plus, this year's QB class is deeper than years previous, and one or two decent QBs will be available for Chicago to pick. Oh, and Cutler resigning for 18mil directly removes funds allocated for improving their D, or in fact, keeping it together as they'll lose guys like Charles Tillman (good for us).

 

Cutler is not an elite QB, nor is he second tier. Romo is terrible during the clutch, but he's light years ahead of Jay.

Yet Cutler had the best 4th quarter QBR of any QB in the league this past season

 

IMO, the last 3 years of the contract are throw away years and do little more than give the inflated overall number to the contract.
