The Cutler deal was huge. It will hurt us. It doesn't matter why it was done.
I don't agree at all.
Cutler is scattershot at best.
The Bears have no WRs.
And they've crippled their draft for the next couple of seasons.
Good QBs find a way to beat teams with less. Cutler is a good QB.
First Cutler isn't a consistent QB at this point and is vastly overrated in a weak AFC West; Denver and the NFL needed a hype to replace John Elway.. without Marshall he will have to prove that he can do it on his own with average at best receivers.
Second, the Bears gave up a ransom worth to obtain him, could the Vikings really afford to go three years without a 1st round pick to build core strength on the roster?
Denver will receive Chicago's first- and third-round pick in this year's draft, and Chicago's first-round pick in 2010, along with Orton. The Bears get Cutler and the Broncos' fifth-round pick this year.
Third, Chilly, Wilf and company bought into Favre in the offseason.. the stars were aligning for them to obtain their messiah... that cost no picks.. plus you added Sage that was suppose to remedy the QB situation.
No conspiracy, just a decision based on the fact that the Vikings FO thought they had their solution for this season.. only to sit under the big tent and be treated to the annual "Will He" Circus.
