JAY CUTLER IS WORTH IT
I don’t get it. What’s so hard to understand? Franchise QBs just aren’t available that often. Retreads, dopers, never-was, shoulda-beens — perhaps even dog fighters — you’ll find in abundance. But franchise QBs at age 25? Let me know if you think of one. That’s why you give a bit more to get one.
I love Dean’s comments in the last Cutler post (Where ya been buddy?). The biggest beneficiary of this could be Matt Forte. Anyone want to predict he’ll see some bigger holes next year?
Then I also read this morning that perhaps it will be difficult now to find a backup because Cutler is so durable. If that’s even true (likely not), I really don’t care. It can be Caleb Hanie for all I care and whiny Jeff George can be the 3. Joking. About the George part anyway.
You don’t think Jeff Garcia at age 39 would want to come here? How about Byron Leftwich? Kyle Boller? J.P. Losman? I’m pretty sure finding or even drafting a backup at QB is nothing to worry about.
Ostensibly, the Bears have formed a very nice core of offensive players in Cutler, Forte, Olsen and Chris Williams. If you want to add Hester in there go ahead. I know Cutler makes Hester better immediately. Think of all the long passes that Orton missed on so badly. Think Cutler nails a few of those?
Clapp said it best in the comments of the other Cutler post: It’s a great day to be a Bears fan. Now, how about Torry Holt for 2 years?
