From a team perspective of needs it has to be them. They have great WR's and Oline. Orton is a tough QB, with good leadership qualities, and a decent arm.
Might sound crazy but that offense might be just as good if not better next year especially if they find a running back, they can add a more balanced attack (which in the end is what every team wants).
Their defense was just awful, you give them two first round picks, and a 3rd...even though a draft pick is just that, a draft pick, if they can get 2 great players on defense in the next 2 years, watch out for the Broncos then.
Say what you want to say, but when a player wants OUT of your organization, and you receive a player that's close to being as good as him plus all those draft picks, you came out with a win.
Not saying that this isn't a good trade for the Bears either, they finally got their Franchise QB that they've never had, Jim Mcmahon for one season does not cut it when your Franchise has been around for close to a hundred years.
So great trade for both teams, but I think the Broncos got a little better than the Bears with this trade.
Originally posted by solidg2000: so the broncos get 2 first round picks, maybe BJ Raji and vonte davis this year, next year maybe (if they have too) trade up and get the next great S from USC plus an additional 3rd rounder that they can use on one of the deepest classes of RBs in years. Plus a QB who while he isn't the greatest, he protects the ball and keeps mistakes to a minnimal. A QB who for the first time in his career will actually have really good WRs to thow too.
on the other hand
Bears get a 5th round pick, and a clone of Grossman who might be a little better, but like Grossman takes a lot of risks and is damaged goods. This will also be the first year Grossman oh sorry Cutler will play for a new QB coach and coordinator, also with minimal talent in the OL, and WR possition.
So again, like I said, the bears got raped
Please join my $500 fantasy league...PLEASE. You can have Orton straight up you won't have to draft him....I will give you an extra slot for him and everything...
I'll be jealous but hey I am a fair sport.
I think he might be a Cutler hater bc he claims Grossman (70 career passer rating) is a clone of Cutler
And I dont think he knows that last years draft was the deepest at RB
here's a stat for you
Cutler is 0-4 when Playoffs are on the line
Here is a fact for you. Realists don't expect QB's to lead football teams in their first few seasons. Realists are just happy if they don't make complete asses of themselves playing their position.
Actually, you show you admiration for the guy. Why else would you place so much responsibility on such a young QB?
QB not looking like a complete idiot in his first 3 years = GOOD(Jay Cutler)
QB looking like a complete idiot in his first 3 years = BAD(Alex Smith)
From this point forward, Cutler is a Vet in the NFL and needs to Carry his team into the playoffs. Clean slate as far as I am concerned.
