Jay Cutler Superstar

Jay Cutler Mythbusting

There's a faction out there that wants to lessen the accomplishments of Jay Cutler's 2008 season. I think this is based more on his personality than the numbers, so I found a few things that should be taken into consideration.

  1. Cutler's Broncos gave up 30 or more points 9 times last year. He did get picked off 18 times, but he had 616 pass attempts.
  2. He dominated in the 4th Quarter. He threw for 11 TDs against 4 picks in the 4th, with a QB rating of 94.2. Lest you think that it was garbage time stat-padding, 10 of his 4th quarter TD passes came when the Broncos were within 7 points.
  3. When the game was tied Cutler had a QB rating of 110, completed 69% of his passes and had 7 TDs against just one interception. 
  4. His numbers during the last 2 minutes of the half were excellent. 4 TDs and only 1 pick.
  5. Within the red zone Cutler threw for 17 TDs and just 4 picks. 
So when people talk about 18 interceptions, make sure they hear about these numbers.
