Cutler on the move!

No, not Stewart Cutler, I’m talking about Jay Cutler!
Once seen as the future of football in Denver, many pinned hopes on him being the next John Elway, leading the Broncos to titles and glory. Let down by a leaky defence under Mike Shanahan, then being caught in the middle of a huge rift with new Broncos coach McDaniels he requested a trade. He got it. The Broncos knew they would be able to get a lot for a franchise QB, who would be willing to pay the price? The Titans? The Bears? The Vikings? The Lions? In the end, it took just 2 days for the Broncos to decide that the Bears were offering the best deal. And what a deal! Chicago get Jay Cutler, a 25 year old Pro Bowl QB, with a better arm than any Bears QB has had in years. We’re talking the best QB the Bears have had since McMahon led them to the Superbowl in ’85 alongside one of the best squads ever (Singletary, Payton, Perry etc etc). What did Denver get? Two 1st round draft picks (2009/2010), a 3rd round draft pick for this years draft and Kyle Orton. Who got the best deal? hard to say, to be honest, I don’t really care what this deal means for the Broncos (unless we meet them in the postseason!). I do care about the Bears. We just got a great QB, add to the roster a couple more good receivers, get the offensive line shored up a wee bit and get the Defense to play at the same kind of form that took the Bears to the 2006 Superbowl and we’re flying!
As you might have guessed, I’m quite chuffed that the Bears made this move. I’m hoping, like many other Bears fans, for an exciting few years with Cutler leading the charge!

enjoy the show folks!

Peace Out

Chris
