Cutler is defended, Smith gets slaughtered

One stat: 17

That's how many interceptions he has to lead the league. BUT OMFG GUISE HE HAS A CANNON IN PLACE OF HIS ARM!

Sorry, not worth the two number 1's and Kyle Orton. He's got a gunslinger mentality without the decision making ability to be a successful quarterback. He's going to be crippled by his bad decisions until he decides to stop single-handedly losing games for his team.
Cutler is garbage
His body of work sucks too
His Int total just gets higher and higher every year

Hey, that's what everyone here says about Alex too!
Cutler=Jeff George. Too much in love with his ability and that arm. Maybe one day he learns but after his temper fit in Denver I doubt it.

Amazing to listen to ESPN Radio(its the only channel we get in Iceland) they are now defending Cutler, 2 of his ints were not his fault and Jason Smith wants a new rule in the NFL called Share Interceptions. I guess Smith would have 4 ints split on the WR with that stats. I am just amazed at how analyst seem to love Cutler

The guy throws a ton of INT's and he's never had a winning record at any level in football.........but people call him the next John Elway.....go figure.

I thought McDaniels was insane with the way that whole situation was handled. Who gets rid of a young franchise quarterback quarterback (besides Tampa Bay in the mid-80s.) Maybe he knew what he was doing.
17 interceptions in 9 games.....

Cutler also started with Shannahan, and when you consider the rest of the QB's Shannahan has worked with, Cutler could be considered a failure.

Too true. Kinda funny that Shannahan could almost be considered "old school".
People tend to give Cutler the benefit of the doubt on his current slump because last season he was 3rd in the NFL for passing yards and had 25 touchdown passes(Denver offense was 2nd in the NFL but Denver defense was ranked near the bottom). Perhaps it was the Shanahan system that made Cutler look good cuz he sure looks like hell this season.

Smith has always played mediocre to horrible so he gets no slack from fans and the press.


As for making excuses for interceptions. When the WR falls down just before the ball arrives which allows the db to make the easy pick that otherwise wouldn't have happened, I think that's one of those rare valid excuses for an interception. I know that was the case on at least one of Cutlers picks. Doesn't really matter though. He played like crap.

Shanahan's offense in Denver last season was ranked 2nd in the NFL. It was the crappy Denver defense that torpedoed their season.

You could make the argument that the offense was ranked 2nd because they had to throw the ball so much to keep par with the opposition.

He had 25 TDs but along with that he had 18 ints.

Even if Hester hadn't fallen down that pick was right to TBrown. He threw it right at him.
I do not understand what everybody's infatuation with Jay Cutler is. The guy's a loser.

He had to win one game in '06 to get into the playoffs. He could not get it done. Got beat by Alex Smith and the 49ers. I seem to remember him throwing a pick 6 right to Walt Harris.

I think it was '08 he had to win one game against the Chargers to get into the playoffs. Again, could not get it done. Not sure if he threw any picks in that one, probably did.

Watch him start whining in Chicago. What's ironic is he whined because they fired Shanahan, yet his turnover propensity probably contributed to Shanny getting canned in the first place.

Thursday night just reiterates what kind of player he is. I don't care how strong his arm is, he sucks. Period.
