El Brujo: Jacksonville? Miami? Cleveland? Minnesota? St. Louis? Oakland?

Just wild guesses


He's 34 and has outright SUCKED everywhere he's played except for a few games this season.

So I would say.. No, No, No, No, No, No

GypsyJoker: Smokey the Bare: It's completely unreasonable for the Bears to resign the best QB the team has had since Sid Luckman. What a bunch of farking idiots!!!

Honest question for the Bears fans: Is Cutler really better than McMahon?


As QB, yes. As a leader, no.

However, it's important to remember that McMahon was the Trent Dilfer of the 80's: anyone could have been QB with the '85 Bears D leading the way.

Quick, name me a better replacement that the Bears would actually have a reasonable chance of acquiring.

I sound fat:

Grossman is available.  As is Tebow.  Both have a better shot at winning the superbowl than Cutler.

/ Hell, Tebow has experience throwing the ball up for grabs like cutler and sucking up the first three quarters like cutler.  h ...



I'm curious...

Is there a Tebow version of godwin's law?

Because you just invoked it.

zimbomba63: The morans talk about McCown like he was busy polishing his Super Bowl rings, when the Bears called him, not coaching a high school team.


Shouldn't it then be concerning, then, that he outperformed your franchise QB?

I've been witness to Chicago's infatuation with defense throughout all my years as a Bears fan. This move, and the commitment that the organization has made to scoring, shows me something I have not seen before. Cutler is the best quarterback my team has ever had, at a time when you need to be a prolific scoring team in order to win. It's a good day.

There are two types of people who do not like this move:
1.Haters. Cutler is abrasive and some people cannot separate his talent from his demeanor. They likely even favor quarterbacks that have worse career stats than Cutler, all because of Cutler's character.
2. Old meatballs. They want a dominant defense in Chicago because DITKA POLISH SAHSAGE FIRE AND PASSION DITKA 85 BEARS. These fans genuinely believe that the Bears just need a fullback like Matt Suhey and everything would be OK on the offense.

ShadowKamui: Mind of the North Star: Dammit Fark Mods... you giveth and you taketh away.  My only greenlight  ever gets deleted? Mods....  I hope you guys never find love.


In all seriousness though, this Jay Cutler situation baffles me. I do actually understand why someone would resign him, but I never understand the crowd that says "Hey it's a no-brainer... sign him". Is it because there's no faith in what moves the front office could do via drafting or trades? Or is it just because its a relief to have a QB doesn't fail everygame? It's certainly not his record against Green Bay.His career stats don't scream "elite QB" and he's almost guaranteed to be injured at some point during the season.I just don't get what has made Jay untouchable in some minds.


On a more important note, you could have the greatest QB in the world and not go anywhere with the hot garbage the Bears call a defense. That should be Phil Emery's focus, actually. I would be happier if Phil did a press conference to say that they've cut Chris Conte (the player, not the reporter) and everyone that had a hand in letting RBs just march up and down the field.

It's a no brainer because the alternatives are far worse

1) Sign McCown, Flynn or some other garbage backups that had a couple of good games this year and tons of crappy ones in the years past
2) Sign Freeman, Weeden, Gabertt or one of the other soon to be jobless QBs
3) VY, Leinheart, JaFatAss or one of the other jobless QBs out there now
4) Trade for Schaub, Sanchez, Orton, Campbell or Cousins (or pick them up if/when they get cut)
5) Pickup whatever QB wasn't touched by the Texans, Browns, Jags or Vikings in the draft and pray to god they turn into Russel Wilson


They could always bring in Orton. Heh.

I recommend taking a look at the stats for this year. Chicago's offense was second in the league in scoring. The offense is not the problem, and Cutler is not the problem. Their defense tied for 30th in points allowed.  If the defense had been merely mediocre instead of atrocious, they would have won their division easily.

I can't tell if you being serious here or trolling?

NO ONE ever thought that McMahon was a great QB.  We had arguably the best defensive and offensive lines in history when he was playing his best, and even then it was all Walter Payton.

/please tell me you were trolling...

Electromax: Cutler's had his up-and-downs, but all the people in Chicago who talk about how McCown would have the Bears in the Super Bowl this year and Cutler is the sole reason the Bears ever lose should not be the ones writing the headlines... Bears had nearly the worst D in the league, one of the top offenses in the league, and Cutler with his best year of his career, why do Chicago media people want to spend every summer and every cent on QBs? I don't care if we have Aaron Rodgers throwing to Randy Moss when Chris Conte has to field the defense.

Better ways to spend time and money this offseason than QB media circus drama. Cutler won't see those 7 years if Emery isn't satisfied, Emery seems ready to get things done at least.


I remember watching Philly fans go through the last decade constantly complaining that McNabb was their weakness and citing the odd Kolb game as clear evidence that McNabb should be replaced while I sat in Chicago watching an endless parade of Peter Tom Mirers and Kordell Kriegs.  I thought that Bears fans would never be so short-sighted if the Bears ever had a competent QB.

I was very wrong on that.

Can you name any 37-year-old big-money-and-worth-it QBs? Because that's what Cutler would be in Year 7 of this deal, and at $54M guaranteed, that's a HEAP of coin for the 2019-2020 seasons. I think they're hoping the O-line stays shiatty enough to kill him sometime in Year 4 (I mean, we do all know that the Contract Year and sometimes, the Contract Year-1 numbers are renegotiated in a new deal, yes?) or he retires.

// also, this is a deal almost as big as Flacco's and for a QB that is in every way worse than Joey Eyebrow
