Jay Cutler could easily be replaced, he flat out sucks. In my other arguments, I'll prove my point.


He's not the best, but he doesn't flat out suck.

The Bears offensive line sucks.

If the Bears had a decent O-Line, Cutler would have the opportunity to consistently play well.

Cutler has a strong arm, and he can be accurate when given the time to sit in the pocket and survey the field.

There's not many QBs who can do a whole lot when they're under constant pressure like Cutler usually is.

Anyway, let's look at some statistical evidence that will counter your claim that Cutler sucks:

In a little over 4 years as a starter, Cutler has thrown for over 16,500 yards, has completed over 61% of his pass attempts, and has 107 TDs against 80 INTs.

Sure, he throws a lot of INTs. So did Favre, and he's considered one of the all-time greats at the QB position.

Cutler's not afraid to take risks.


But the biggest flaw in your argument is that you say that Cutler can easily be replaced.

By whom?

David Garrard?

He'd be a downgrade.

Brett Favre?

He's not coming back, and he'd be a downgrade anyway.


Bottom line, it would be very difficult for the Bears to replace Cutler right now without having a significant drop-off at the QB position.

Just look at there line's stats & some of Cutler's play as we speak. Any other QB wouldn't be as mobile as Cutler either...sorry guys!


This is messed up how it posted my first argument, twice, and now I only have one left...

But I guess it's ok because you're not giving me much to argue against, anyway.


I'm not sure how you want me to look at the Bear's line's stats... the only stat I can find is sacks allowed, and in 2010 the Bears gave up 56.

And so far in 2011, the Bears have allowed 14 sacks in 3 games, meaning the Bears are on pace to give up almost 75 sacks this year!!

I'll say it again: the Bears O-Line is horrendous, and you can't blame Cutler for his performance when he is under so much pressure.


Not only that, but consider who the Bears wide receivers are:

starters include Roy Williams and Devin Hester

backups include Johnny Knox, Dane Sanzenbacher, and Earl Bennett.


Not a single quality WR among the bunch.

Neither Hester nor Williams should be starting WRs, and Knox, while he has shown potential, simply isn't consitent enough to be a starter. The other two aren't even worth mentioning.


Even with those awful WRs and a horrible O-Line, Cutler has passed for 858 yards and 5 TDs this year, which is remarkable considering the situation he's in.


Forfeited Turn

He should get rid of the ball faster!

Not even that, Cutler just doesn't understand the offense. During one of the pre-season games, a commentator said that Jay Cutler spent the offseason learning the offense...plus getting rid of the ball would help. But even with Roy Williams coming, he doesn't really help his case.

I voted right... mainly because I'm confused how the voting works when the arguments get all twisted like this.

If I vote left, is it also a vote for Marlins Fan?

Cutler isn't a bad QB, he's got a cannon for an arm and is accurate enough when he has time to get the ball out...behind that putrid OL, that doesn't happen often. A serious lack of receiving talent in Chicago doesn't help him any either. Roy Williams? Please. Dallas took a salary cap hit to dump his worthless behind and replace him with a dude who won a roster spot on a reality show. (you can't make this stuff up).

Hey UN, I see you changed your name.Do you really think the Castillo experiment should be nixed already?

When you've got Nnamdi Asomugha, Asante Samuel and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie as your cornerbacks... and you're going against a New York Giants team with a decimated receiving corp... and some nobody like Victor Cruz busts a 100+ yard, 2 touchdown receiving game on your defense. You blame the coach.

And that's only the tip of the iceberg.

September 25, 2011  06:12 PM ET

ATTENTION PERSON ON THE LEFT,...... JAY CUTLER IS BETTER THAN 50% OF CURRENT STARTERS! So saying he can be "easily replaced" is crazy. Alex Smith, Kerry Collins, Tavarius Jackson, Jason Campbell are STARTERS! Cutler is at least a top 20 qb

he gets hit a lot. and that falls on the OL more than anything else

Maybe the Eagles should make Castillo the O-Line coach again, and look elsewhere for a DC.

That's the worst part. Juan Castillo was one of the better offensive line coaches in the game. They moved him to defense. And then hired Howard Mudd to coach the offensive line.

IMO, Howard Mudd is the most overrated offensive line coach in the league. Just look at the garbage he was putting on the field in Indianapolis. That team couldn't run the ball and Peyton Manning's pre-snap adjustments / quick release helped make that offensive line look a lot better in the sacks allowed category.

Beyond that, Mudd's approach to offensive line coaching just simply does not fit the Eagles roster. Mudd prefers undersized linemen who jump off the LOS quickly and attack the pass rushers. Philadelphia has a bunch of oversized buffet busters who are better suited taking a step back to anchor their spot on the field.
