MVP doesn't stand for "Has Worst Backup"

Take out Cutler's dreadful '09 season, and his impact is more pronounced, with the Bears 24-10 with him under center.

And if you take out the last 9 seasons of the Texans, they've only lost once!!!!!

/Hate it when reporters say stupid shiat like that

Lost Thought 00: MVP doesn't stand for "Has Worst Backup"


That's a little harsh. Campbell could start for a few teams that play to his strengths. He can run a WCO with reasonable efficiency.

But Cutler is the dumpster in the metaphorical dumpster fire that is the Bears offense. He's the one solid thing that holds it together. There aren't many QBs who could do as well in the same situation, even when the bar for "playing well" is so low. Rodgers would do better, but a statue like Ryan would do worse, even though Ryan is a better QB.

I wouldn't make the argument that he should be MVP, but Chicago would be hanging out with Carolina and STL in the standings without him.

Lost Thought 00: MVP doesn't stand for "Has Worst Backup"


I'm not sure what you expect from a QB when the line can't protect him for more than 1.5 seconds. A blocking sled might be more effective than Gabe Carimi.

Though, I can't applaud Lovie's plan to have Campbell run Cutler's offense, but with worse timing and accuracy. Not the best game plan I've seen.
 
2012-11-26 10:53:45 AM  
Cutler's most impressive feat is only having missed the one game this year. That O-line is utterly horrible.
 
2012-11-26 10:53:48 AM  
The Bears were dominant in the NFC last year until Cutler got hurt, then Hanie came in and Chicago looked awful. Granted, Forte was hurt too.

This year the Bears have been dominant with Cutler again, lost when Campbell came in.

no. he probably would have given up by halftime, pouting around the sideline. Cutler shouldn't be an MVP just because a couple games each year he gives up at halftime because he is getting sacked too much or the team is playing bad.

There was a point in the 3rd quarter of that SF game where Campbell was becoming visibly agitated with is O-Line. Getting creamed on every play will do that to a guy.

Have you even looked at his numbers broken down by quarter? Cutler has been a monster in the second half this year.
 
2012-11-26 11:24:12 AM  
While i have no love for Cutler, he has found ways to win ball games despite the fact that his o-line appears to hold some sort of grudge against him. It's like he owes those guys money or something.

Still wouldn't have won the 9ers game. But I think he would have made the difference against the Texans.

Agreed.

Clearly Seattle's 12th man is a stronger MVP candidate, as with him they're 5-0 and without him they're 1-5, with the one win being over lowly Carolina.

I love it when people bring up the "weak schedule" argument. What it boils down to is this: winning your division is most important. You and your division foes play the same schedule for 14 out of 16 games. Be better than your division foes in those 14 games, chances are you'll win the division. Plain and simple. So, yes, the Bears have beat the teams they should beat. And they've lost to Houston, SF, and GB. You play good teams, and sometimes you lose. I'd rather they lose 4 times to teams that are tough and win 12 times against teams that are bad, than win 6 against bad teams and 2 against good teams. 12-4 gets you to the playoffs every time. 8-8 almost never does. And it's not as if they get to pick their schedule. Heck, the following year's schedule is decided the minute the regular season is done!

So the weak schedule argument is just that: weak. I'll even go one step further: 6 games of a team's schedule never changes. Go at least 4-2 in your division, more times than not you're in the playoffs. That's all that matters in the end, right? I'd rather be a weak 12-4 in the playoffs than a strong 8-8 and playing golf.

The game against Houston went down to the last play and that was without Cutler for the second half.

The Packers game earlier in the year is not a good representation of the team. Not saying they would have won at Lambeau but they are not as bad as they looked there.

The game in San Francisco was definitely a trouncing and a pathetic showing by the Bears. Again though, no Cutler and playing in a place they haven't won since 1985 - that was bound to happen.

I don't think they're the best team in the league but there's plenty of reason to believe they can win the division. Definitely not "frauds" just because they are doing their job against the teams they're supposed to be beating.

If measured against a quarterback from another dimension, and if that quarterback played for a junior league team, and adding 12, dividing by the atomic weight of a yet to be discovered element....
MVP = Mike Trout!

I can't bust too much on Cutler. He seems like a pretty laid back guy who does goof on himself. I mean in interviews. Not when he's avoiding attempted murder or looking to see how many yards back his spleen landed.

Haha, math is hard.

///There is no metric by which Jay Cutler should be MVP over PeyPey, unless "Pouty Face" counts for 99% of the decision. Just like the morons who looked at the 2011 Colts and said Peyton should get the MVP, no one should take this argument seriously. Of course, some morons will.
