Who got the better end of the JAY CUTLER trade?

Who got the better end of the JAY CUTLER trade?

And he rushed for 2 TD's. It's very difficult for teams to win over a 3 game stretch where the defense gives up 112 points.

So to blame only cutler is ignorant.
I like Cutler a lot but feel Denver got the better end of this deal.

Orton isn't bad and they should get some good players with the picks from Chicago. Considering the circumstances i think Denver did really well

Denver didn't win this trade.

They traded a franchise quarterback for two players who theoretically could be good players.

Bears won easily.
the bears are a running team and always will be. All Cutler has to do is hand the ball off
Minnesota should have went after him
Hands down the Broncos.

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.

yep, Bears got a great deal. Player wise and Money wise. Makes total sense for the Bears and zero sense for Denver.

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.

we'll see how the draft pick turns out!
You guys crack me up.....

There have been all this hammer throwing about how the Bears have no WRs but we don't either but if you ask most on this board we are CERTAINLY going to play-offs this season.

So how is it that the Bears with a better defense, a better QB, a better OL and a similar WRs and a bit less RB and playing in a WEAKER division WONT make the play-offs?

LOL!!


It just cracks me up.

Actually Forte is probably just as good as Gore. Their defense though is not better than ours.

Okay total defense yes we're better, but the Bears were a tad closer to the playoffs than we were.

Great. Cutler instead of throwing 18 INTs in Denver... He can throw 30 INTs in Chicago. Great Pick up!!!

Yeah they had 2 more wins... but we play them this year so I guess we will see in time who is closer to the playoffs...
