Well, last year the bears defense sucked more. I can't see trading Orton after making that amount of investment.Because Kyle Orton sucks, and Jay Cutler sucks less?
I agree that Cutler is loads better than Orton. I don't, however, think he is 2 first round draft picks better (especially when he was essentially demanding a trade and could be had for much cheaper).Wow, its amazing how many naysayers are out there. If you were to watch tape of both players you will see that Cutler is better at every point of being a QB than Orton. I like Orton and would have been ok with him being our QB again this season, but this is the most important position on the field and these opportunities never come about. So as a Bears fan I completely stand by this trade and will enjoy watching the Bears dominate this division for some time.
I agree that they paid highly, and maybe even overpaid, but this is an invalid argument. If you could have gotten John Elway or Dan Marino in their prime for two first rounders, would you turn it down because they had not won a Superbowl?Two First rounders? Come on! If the guy had already won a superbowl maybe
You really think Cutler even comes close to Marino or Elway??????? Thats just crazy.I agree that they paid highly, and maybe even overpaid, but this is an invalid argument. If you could have gotten John Elway or Dan Marino in their prime for two first rounders, would you turn it down because they had not won a Superbowl?
Well, to be fair, Cutler can move slightly faster than the pace of a snail which we couldn't say about BledsoeCutler put up some great numbers last year but I don't think he was worth what the Bears gave up. I see a little bit too much of a Bledso type QB in him. Put up big numbers in receptions, yards AND ints.
But ofcourse we will see, we will see.
Lions don't need a QB. They need two lines.I wish the Lions would have gotten him.
Orton sucks btw.
The Bears now finally have a quality, franchise QB. Good for them.Da Bears Gave up WAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!! Too Much for Cutler. Two First rounders? Come on! If the guy had already won a superbowl maybe but during his campaign as a starter at Denver there a .500 team and his time at vanderbilt.....He won 11 games in 4 years. Im not doubting his talent because he is a gunslinger with a cannon for an arm but he was not worth two first rounders and a third plus Kyle Orton no way in hell!
Cook is also Calvin Johnson's agent and has not presented any issues at all in the Lions dealing with CJ. In fact, he got CJ's rookie deal done in time to get him in camp. Anytime you do that with the #2 overall pick that says something about the agent.With Culter , you get the added benefits of Bus Cook.
Have fun with that.
First thing I thought was exactly this. Who does he throw to? *chuckle*The Bears now finally have a quality, franchise QB. Good for them.
They have terrible receivers. Cutler went to the Pro Bowl throwing to Brandon Marshall and Eddie Royal. I don't recognize a single guy currently listed on the roster on their website at WR. Sure there's Hester, but what else? Greg Olsen? Desmond Clark? Cutler does not have the passing weapons in CHI that he had in DEN. Bad for the Bears.
I am too I cant see any team justifying spending two First rounders and a the third. If the lions would of gave up the #20 and a 3rd or something it would be worth it. Next years draft is going to have a nice stock of QBS.I'm thrilled that the Lions bowed out once they heard the asking price.
From what I have been able to see I would rather have sanchez, I have not got to see a whole lot but I like Sanchez's Arm strength and accuracy a lot.The interesting thing is that it sounded like the Lions DID offer the #1 overall pick, but Denver wanted nothing to do with it because of how much they would have to commit to sign the top pick (probably $30M in guaranteed money). Sounds like they are far from convinced that Stafford will be worth it in the end.
Cutler was one of the best QBs in the conference last year. How long's it been since Chicago could say they had a QB that's a legitimate Pro Bowl-caliber player? He's a whiny little bitch, but he's better than anyone they've had since... oh, I don't know, he's better than McMahon ever was.
The Bears best receiver is probably who, Greg Olson? But, I'd rather find some wideouts on the scrap bin or in the draft then go through another year without a QB.
In a perfect world We'll get Curry at #1 and Sanchez at #20Agree completely - but will the Lions have the cajones to take Sanchez #1? I don't think so, especially with several franchise-caliber players available at the tackle and linebacker spot. I really don't think I would take Stafford in that spot; I'd be going for Monroe or Curry.
