Cutler is getting a bad wrap on all this. If he is upset over being traded for any QB, then he's being unrealistic. Cutler was going to be traded for CASSEL. That's the stinger. Cassel? Are you kidding me?
Cutler has a right to be upset and demand to be traded. If the coach wants a 'system' QB, than go draft the one you want. Sounds like the coach has been drinking to much belicheck cool-aide.

Huh??? You can't be serious about this? HE HAD ONE COMPLETION OVER 30 YARDS!!!! Orton does a GREAT job at orchestrating 3 and outs without throwing the ball down field. I don't believe 30 yrd attempts are his problem. I believe his issues are holding the ball way to long, interceptions, telegraphing his passes, and a lack for balls!!!!
You totally misunderstood what I wrote. I don't care how many yards any QB can throw the ball... part of a QB's job is to orchestrate drives which eat clock and tire the opponent's defense, simultaneously resting his own defense. If you take the time to read the comments in this thread, probably half the Rex haters commented on how they won't miss his deep balls thrown into double coverage - meaning his receivers weren't getting open. If Hester is the only deep threat, he's going to get double coverage. Orton was at least smart enough not to try to force something, hence the lack of 30-yard completions. Besides, checking off to the tight ends or Forte worked pretty good for the Bears last year.

When it comes down to it wins and losses are the most important thing. I know Orton is not flashy by any means but the guy wins and with so so talent to throw the ball to. As a starter Orton has a 62% winning percentage (21-13). Cutler is at 46%(17-20). Now Denver has some talent on that team. By the way Cutler was 11-35 at Vanderbilt, hardly a winner. If the Bears are going to get a QB lets get a winner.
And I believe Grossman was 23-12 (66%) as a starter before the foolish decision to go with Orton. Want him back? How many wins did Orton get last year? See this win/lose thing has something to do with the quality of team a QB plays on.

It took 16 games for our #1 receiver, all world deep threat to make a great catch. That means we had two great catches the entire season vs a huge number of drops that would've kept drives alive. KO's problem was play calling from the sideline. When the went to a two minute offense and KO was able to call his own plays, the offense was just fine.
I disagree. "Two-minute" offenses always make a QB (particularly one like Orton)look better. Lots of quick short passes with no time for defensive switches. Right up Orton's alley. However, they don't necessarily end in TD's. Orton is good against poor defenses. He hasn't had a strong passing game against a decent defense, to my recollection, in his entire career.

Yes, a team needs its offense to eat up the clock. That is a given. Offense on the field rests the defense. However, I don't think it is possible for an offense to go 60 plus yards most of the time. Sure it is possible not to have 3 and outs. But the odds are against offenses to drive down the field and score without a big play. This is why special teams are important it gives the offense a short field(We use to have an advantage here).

A big play is needed at some point in the game. Forte has provided that in the running game when teams aren't stacking the box with 8 defenders.

Then again, a WR with the ability to take a short Orton pass the distance or a QB with the ability to stretch the defense can provide the big play. Since the QB is just wishful thinking with this organization I guess the next best thing is the WR.

This team still have a lot of question marks. O-Line? Will the D-line improve? Will the DBs show up? FS? It is possible that if the D-line gets fixed the secondary can be protected. But I'm reaching.

Now you've crossed the line Haugh. What a stupid idea. What was Denver's record with cutler at QB. The Bears finally have a QB with some real potential and you want to trade him. The Bears need receivers, linemen and a safety. QB has been resolved. It's obvious that you have had too much exposure to the Comcast morons!

Denver's record is in no way indicative of how well Cutler played because of how pathetic the defense was over the last 3 years. Giving up 30-40 points was not just an occurance, it was an expectation. If you want to talk about Cutler turning the ball over, try to remember that it's kinda hard not to when you have to play uphill all the time and the defense knows you have to throw.
Put Cutler on the Pats last year and they go 13-3 or 14-2 and get a bye. Put Cassel on the Broncos last year and they go 5-11 at best, never sniffing a wiff of .500 at anytime.
Cassel isn't squat without the Pats rec.s. Cutler is an all around talent that is only going to get better IF he gets out of Denver.

I'll bet cold cash Cedric Benson out gains all Bear running backs next season.
are you kidding me? Thats the most rediculous statement anyone has ever made. unless forte gets hurt. there is no way that delusion your having will come true. Did you even look at forte's numbers this year? Forte might almost compete with benson just in reception yards alone.

also Keep in mind benson is a screw up, hes probably toking a blunt as we speak and driving under the influence. he will probably screw up his career again. oh and the bears might not be the best franchise in football. but they will always be better then cinci.

also with palmer back cinci is going to be pass first. everyone knows the bears are a running team.

be prepared to lose your hard earned money! Forte will have double the amount of touches on the ball then benson.
